Re: <nettime> WG: Fwd: Re: Forms of decisionism

[I'm really enjoying the discussion in this thread, thanks all!]

If we do end up with a new vastly distributed factory then the question becomes how do we build a similarly distributed and decentralised system to orchestrate it? There are already many startups (3dhubs.com, WikiFactory, OpenDesk...) staking out their fences to enclose the commons... sorry, building platforms to enable this brave new world.

How do we celebrate and encourage the messier, less homogenous (and so harder for consumers to engage with) decentralised solution, rather than cheer the next wave of Uber-like businesses to roll through a new section of the economy?

    allthough in my view there are a lot of indications that support the

    strong and sustaining growth of consumation of ressources.
