My name is Simon Grant. I use the username "asimong" in many places including here and Wikipedia, and it is my main e-mail address at gmail.com. So a search for "asimong" is very likely to come up with material related to me.
When I see an author or book without a page, particularly one I know about, I often create a relevant page. See, for example
I've been coming across lots of related groups that I didn't know about, too. Again, if they are aligned and have no page here, and I care about them, I'll add a page here.
You can find out about me through
- my Bio page on this wiki: Simon Grant
- my main home page
- my work blog
- my personal blog
- things I tweet about (really not often)
- or just search for "asimong" on the web generally – it's almost always me.
On my personal blog I have started to blog about the things I care about:
- personal and ethical development
- technology supporting people
- many of the interesting ideas explored in this site
Projects that I would like to find people to share, perhaps within the P2P or Commons orbit?
- Commons Academia — creating, generating, presenting high quality useful peer-reviewed knowledge.
- Commons Harmonization — a different approach to working with standards.
- How to create a generative human culture in web-based communities.
- A different take on supply chains — including materials, skills and competences all together.
- The "Intrapersonal Commons" — about commoner culture and psychology
- Satisfying the cognitive demands of sharing, collaboration, and co-operation generally
- Thinking around the topic of distributed curation of commons knowledge
- Commons Transition UK loomio group
More than anything else, I am looking for opportunities to act, as well as to think and write, about how to grow and move towards a better world. Please get in touch if you see significant common ground.
I originally came to the P2P Foundation in 2012 through Unlike Minds (who also have a page here Unlike Minds) where there are some great people doing very interesting things, involved with Gorton (ex-)Monastery in Manchester (England).
