Most of the rules and regulations regarding business norms, liability, ownership, commerce, licencing and related matters, whether set up for ill- or well-intentioned purposes, have become meaningless or even detrimental in the new economies of networked sharing, reputation, open source design, co-operative communities, DIY industry and social entrepreneurship. Indeed, I’d go so far as to say these conflicts with the legal paradigms of the old economy are the main obstacle holding back a utter renaissance of community strength, creativity, problem-solving, beauty and abundance.
Enter the Berkeley-based Sustainable Economics Law Center (SELC) that uses legal practice and law expertise to help foster the sharing economy, collaborative and cooperative enterprises and other sustainable, community-oriented efforts.
In this presentation from last year, hear the co-directors of SELC, Janelle and Jenny, explain the social and legal implications of the networked sharing economy.
If you enjoyed this talk and are interested in the legal aspects of the sharing economy, check out this book published by one of SELC lawyers:
Practicing Law in the Sharing Economy: Helping People Build Cooperatives, Social Enterprise, and Local Sustainable Economies
Interesting talk about the direction networked info and com technologies might take democracy and government given at the 29th Chaos Communication Congress. While acknowledging that our goal is to eventually outgrow the very idea of nation states, the presenters examine how network-style protocols, while cryptographically challenging, can facilitate more ideal governance structures.
Very cool explanation of how the filter mechanism or ‘reducing-valve’ theory of consciousness and psychedelic states suggested by William James, Aldous Huxley and others was recently supported by brain MRIs of people experiencing psilocybin.
and states that commercial reactors for domestic use will soon be commonplace.

There are few write-ups and commentaries appearing online as well. Here is one from Forbes.
And here is a promotional video released by NASA:
From the same group that made the 3D music video to Bjork’s Wanderlust and the maker website for kids mentioned previously, DIY.org.
Like Bjork’s Wanderlust, this video is also available in 3D.
Scientists from around the world gathered at MIT in 2007 to present their findings in the field of Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reactions, a.k.a cold fusion.
This video is almost 5 years old. The internet says that there are currently functioning devices around the world. The implications of that are the complete and total dismantlement the old economy. Oil, coal, gas, militarism, transportation costs, population distribution… To what length, I wonder, will those whose empires this breakthrough crumbles go to slow down or even stop this transition?
(Really intense soundtrack too.)
There is a class about cold fusion being offered now at MIT for its second year.
