P2P Foundation

The Foundation for Peer to Peer Alternatives

Via John La Grou and http://www.millenniamediagroup.com/foundation/ppm.php :

Dear friends,

They seem to be very low key about it, but in any case, I'm happy to receive it and since this is in many ways a collective endeavour, it's an award for all of us, the many contributors who have 'peer produced' through contributions and dialogue, the material at the P2P Foundation and its attempt to foster a new phase in human civilisation, based on open and free, participatory, and commons oriented principles.

For our secular friends, the origin of the award may seem somewhat surprising, since the Millenia Award is a foundation associated with 'progressive evangelicals' (home church movement, open anabaptism, green evangelicals, and similar movements).

In any case, I'm very honoured that we have been perceived by such community as a bridge maker, thanks to all for your assistance and attention throughout these first years of our existence,

Michel Bauwens

(PPM refers to personal participatory media)

Here is how they justify it:

"Excellence in PPM invites passionate dialogue while remaining hospitable, charitable, and beneficial to all participants. Millennia Awards are given to PPM communities which bridge superficial cultural and religious divides - exploring commonality as much as difference; maintaining fresh, creative, missional formats accessible and relevant to a diverse audience; remaining sensitive to our shared humanity and common need for grace as we learn and grow together."

Personal Participatory Media

The Millennia Foundation views Participatory Media as the "new printing press" - an emerging global venue in which ideas and imagination, not structural or positional power, moderate cultural dialogue. PPM encourages an emancipation of knowledge and personal responsibility, reawakening dreams buried in the slumber of institutional hierarchy and control. Wisdom (see Proverbs) is the new gatekeeper and community is reborn as a network of conversations.

Excellence in PPM invites passionate dialogue while remaining hospitable, charitable, and beneficial to all participants. Millennia Awards are given to PPM communities which bridge superficial cultural and religious divides - exploring commonality as much as difference; maintaining fresh, creative, missional formats accessible and relevant to a diverse audience; remaining sensitive to our shared humanity and common need for grace as we learn and grow together.
