Core Peer-2-Peer Collaboration Principles
Project initiated by Ryan Lanham
Section 1: Toward a Peer to Peer (p2p) Ethos
Article 1. P2P Interactions
A. High quality p2p interactions exist between peers. These interactions attempt to minimize the participation of any framework, force, entity or organization that might become involved between two or more parties seeking use, enjoyment, employment or collaboration concerning something that can be shared between consenting parties.
B. In high quality p2p interactions: The context, purpose or task which informs interactions is designed to minimize potential external control of the validity, legality or ethical spirit of the interaction so long as participants are willing to engage.
C. What to avoid: P2P specifically does not aim to circumvent democratically enacted laws, rights to property, rightfully established organizational controls, or legitimate claims of propriety in force of any sort. Rather, p2p seeks to build and expand common resources that are expressly free, open, collaborative and mutually beneficial.
