Here's an important message from Nathan Cravens, who proposes to work on a collective document about the implementation of peer production for physical production, in phases.
"I'm preparing an essay for what I call Mutually Assured Production, a manifesto that can unite the Open Everything movement once published as a wiki at the P2P Foundation, if you think it appropriate. You are the most qualified person I know in regard to the subject matter the essay presents.
It begins by talking about the current economic issues, then goes into a few feasible solutions, like Basic Income as a top down approach and P2P production as a bottom up method, both organizational techniques that can work together to produce a purely voluntary social environment.
After talking on Basic Income and P2P production, I formulated three phases of materials production:
1) Manufacturing at a Regional Distribution Center for Local Outlet distribution
2) Manufacturing at the Outlet
3) Personal Production.
Later on charts and graphs can be added, more examples can be provided to describe the ideas written, and MAP participating organizations can document progress in alignment with the tentative steps described. It will take a variety of disciplines to pull off what the manifesto describes. Many organizations out there are already a part of it in their own fields, its just a matter of unifying the goals of these sparse projects towards a greater goal..
Once we're happy with the document, we can then contact organizations that relate to the methods described, and help make the written abstraction a physical reality.
A document like this can really get things moving. You're free to edit the document and are welcome to bring others in that can best fill in particular knowledge gaps
Here's the very first draft: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dg2jzdft_46cdb2b4gr&pli=1
