The idea many have long discussed in our network is how to integrate the many technologies and areas of expertise in this large network of P2P innovators globally through the deployment of some type of ecovillage development that could be rapidly replicated globally.
A key component of such a business and movement would be that it would operate as a social enterprise incubating businesses onsite that would incorporate relevant P2P technologies.
An additional component is the idea that the process would be designed also to consider how these incubation centers would create synergy among the various ventures being developed so that the waste of one venture becomes the food of another.
That is to create an ecology of commercial interactions within and between each of these ecovillage training centers, so that the seed that started the P2P movement is further propagated. A point of a critical mass could then be reached enabling this information to be disseminated as common knowledge and practice in the mainstream society.
The idea ultimately is to foster the convergence of sustainable technology with Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) so that it is clearly understood how technology is enabling human capacity development in a more socially and ecologically sustainable way moving us towards Doug Engelbart's vision of Collective Intelligence.
