<nettime> The Incomplete Paradigm Shift


Dear Nettimers,

over the past year, I have written a draft book on the Network Commons.
I have followed the hacker maxim of publishing early and publishing
often, so the whole draft is now online.
http://www.thenextlayer.org/NetworkCommons

However, I would like to draw your attention to a sub-chapter. In this
text, The INcomplete Paradigm Shift, I have tried to apply the theory of
technopolitical paradigms to the current paradigm non-shift.
http://www.thenextlayer.org/node/1324

Ideas about technopolitical paradigms have been first mulled over by
Brian Holmes and me in 2009. Since 2011 a Technopolitical Working group
exists in Vienna. We have now started working on a kind of Timeline
which tries to express graphically what this text, briefly, tries in
prose. This text, above, is an attempt at understanding where, why and
how the progressive and emancipatory potentials of information society
have come stuck and maybe providing a glimpse of possible alternatives,
but that's already said too much. 

Some thoughts in process on related issues are also presented tonight by
Kristian LukiÄ and me at Tranzit, Bratislava

Coming week, on Tuesday 16th, Dusan Barok will grace one of our regular
meetings. https://www.facebook.com/events/1459102244402279/

It would be nice to receive feedback in email, on and off list, or maybe
join us at one of our upcoming events. If you do so, please drop me a
line in advance, as our regular meetings are semi-private, newcomers
welcome but please announce yourself

best regards
Armin
