General Description of the Open Research Project

The Brazilian Institute of Information in Science and Technology - IBICT, the School of Communication at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and the P2P Foundation have initiated the mapping of P2P culture and initiatives all over Brazil. This mapping should include open, participatory and commons-oriented projects that redesign society, government and business. The aim is to show the wide variety of ways in which Brazilian citizens and others are creating value together, using the new social and network technologies to facilitate their cooperation.

The project is also a personal initiative of P2P Foundation founder Michel Bauwens, Clovis Lima of IBICT, with the generous help and guidance of Vinicius Braz Rocha, who will, along with friends and associates, also launch a P2P Foundation Brazil initiative.

The launch event took place in various locales on Wednesday, November 28th, between 2 and 5 pm. But: this is an ongoing project and all assistance is very welcome!

The summary announcement is located here at

Our aim will be to map a maximum number of ‘P2P’ based initiatives in Rio de Janeiro in particular, and in Brazil generally .

The first item in the WikiSprint

  • Olha Obra: crowdmap, geographically located initially in Niterói, crowdsourced and open to collaboration. It is based on a free open-source platform called Ushahid. OlhaObra is the crowdmap prototype, that will observe the demolition and construction of buildings around the city, in order to pinpoint real estate speculation.

Criteria (for inclusion)

In very general terms, you are welcome to include any project that has a significant participative or collaborative aspect. We aim to find such projects that redefine the way business is done and how the market operates; the way government is done or how the state operates; the way society functions and how civil society operates. The latter includes the wide field of cultural expression as well.

More strictly defined, this is what defines peer production projects in the narrow sense:

  • open input: contributions must be ‘permissionless’
  • participatory production and governance process: contributors must have a say ; transparency and openness of the collaborative processes
  • commons-oriented output: the results of the collaborative must be shareable, i.e. use of commons-oriented licences saída orienta

However, for the purpose of the projects, which is also interested in all hybrid and mixed projects that invite external collaboration, these criteria should be seen as polarities.

Projects that enter within the scope of this mapping project are:

  • commons-based peer production
  • open innovation, co-creation, co-design
  • crowdsourcing and crowdfunding
  • participatory governance and political projects such as participatory legislation, planning, budgetting
  • projects focused on openness, such as open data etc ..
  • projects focused on wider inclusion and participation of broader layers of the population
  • ethical economy projects where profit-making is subsumed to wider “for-benefit” considerations, i.e. social economy, ethical economy, solidarity economy
  • any project involving a measure of mutualization of knowledge (open source, free licenses) and infrastructure (collaborative consumption) ; including workplaces (coworking, hackerspaces, fablabs, etc ..)
  • projects involving distributed infrastructures such as meshworks for communication, distributed machinery such as 3D Printing
  • political and social movements that support any of the above

What we would like to find:

  • the best p2p/collaborative/participative blogs in Brazil
  • the best p2p/collaborative/participative Facebook and other Social Media group pages, especially on alternative social media,
  • the best p2p/collaborative/participative twitter feeds
  • the best public intellectuals, grassroots individuals and groups, and thinkers/doers in this area
  • the best books and articles, including eBooks on the topic
  • the best audio and video material
  • the best resource directories including other mapping initiatives
