Hi Michel, I resume you mean to share some information about the peer to peer research?.. I worked for an anti poverty charity ATD Fourth World and in the UK we just compleled a 2 year research project - where it was lead by people experiencing poverty. The aim of th eproject was to make policy recommendations to local and central government policy makers with a poverty and socail exclusion remit, informaed with the knowledge of people with first hand experience of poverty. . THe Porject was called Voices For A Change and a report can be downloaded from www.atd-uk.org. We trained people living in poverty as peer researchers and to become spokespeople on behalf of those living in poverty. Peer research added richness to the research a nd brought benefit to the participants. We found that peer to peer workmeant we got more realistic results and people becamen a lot more actively involved in creating change. This is what I wish government to model a new approach to people working informally on. In the UK benefit recipient s may work informally as a survival mechanism, it takes them out of absolute povety but traps them in relative poverty. the governemtn has a zero tolerence approach to this and we believe this pushes people further underground and into isolation. peer to peer would encourage people to come froward and talk about teh ir experiences and voices what changes need to be in place in order to make informal work no longer a necessity to survive.
Hope this helps and gives a better idea of what we are looking for and why peer to peer is so valuable in our work.
If you have any suggestions I would like to hear them
Thanks, Michel. I am sure I will learn a lot, as always when I engage with you and those who are part of P2P. I would like to take this opportunity to invite you and others on this list to
• Send announcements of events far enough in advance to be relevant for Integral Leadership Review issues,
• Send accounts of participation in workshops/conferences and other activities for the Notes from the Field section of ILR, and
• Submit articles for possible publication in ILR. An example might be a discussion of (and care) of leadership in P2P contexts.
Also, we have initiated Integral Publishers and are in the process of publishing three books, one in the Insights on Leadership series, another on "The new Currency" and the third on "Evolutionary Leadership." I am interested in receiving book proposals.
Merci Michel de m'avoir envoyé une invitation à p2pfoundation.
Actuellement, j'habite Arles, dans le sud de la France, où je travaille comme Responsable TIC d'une entreprise d'ingénieurie : le LERM
Au plaisir de te lire !
Yes Michel. I am editing a book on professional pride. It will be published in june. In the Netherlands the government still believes that the work in the (semi-)public branche can be improved, and the costs can be lowered by introducing competition. Some consequences of this method are: demotivation of the workers, the incentives to cooperate disappear, innovation stops etc. This book wants to present alternatives. If you know about excellent papers from the p2p-world which might be a contribution to the book, I would be interested!
I would be more than happy to when the project looks a little better than it does right now. A reviewer has some substantive feedback for the author and this will not be resolved for about a week. I will let you know more when it is time. Thanks for your interest.
Oui j'ai quitté la région de Cognac. Je ne suis plus Pasteur maintenant, je travaille au sein d'une entreprise en la qualité de Responsable TIC. C'est donc pour moi et ma famille un changement assez important. Et toi, tu es toujours en Thaïlande ? J'espère que tout va bien pour toi. J'ai cru lire quelque part que tu as écris un ouvrage édité chez L'Harmattan. C'est juste ?
Hi Michael! I know very well the italian translation of your work! Would be also pretty to find other italian people interested in subtituling your interview made by Robin Good in Rome! I met you on the Oekonux mailing list on which is discussed the possible extension of the free software paradygm in economics.
