Jump to: navigation, search

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.

I have contributed plenty to this wiki. See my contributions page. A major piece of work I did around new year 2017 was Vocabulary of Commons.

When I see an author or book without a page, particularly one I know about, I often create a relevant page. See, for example

  1. Marjorie Kelly
  2. Sam Muirhead
  3. John Thackara
  4. Lean Logic
  5. David Fleming
  6. Gene Youngblood
  7. Anya Kamenetz

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.

  1. GalGael

On my personal blog I have started to blog about the things I care about:

  • values
  • 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?

  1. Commons Academia — creating, generating, presenting high quality useful peer-reviewed knowledge.
  2. Commons Harmonization — a different approach to working with standards.
  3. How to create a generative human culture in web-based communities.
  4. A different take on supply chains — including materials, skills and competences all together.
  5. The "Intrapersonal Commons" — about commoner culture and psychology
  6. Satisfying the cognitive demands of sharing, collaboration, and co-operation generally
  7. Thinking around the topic of distributed curation of commons knowledge
  8. 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).
