== Our aims ==
| width="50%" |
'''We function as a clearinghouse for open/free, participatory/p2p and commons-oriented initiatives.'''
We aim to be a pluralist network to document, research, and promote peer to peer alternatives. Our political aims could be summarized under the following maxims:
# ending the destruction of the biosphere by abandoning the dangerous conceptions of pseudo-abundance in the natural world (i.e. based on the assumption that natural resources are infinite);
# promoting free cultural exchange by abandoning the innovation-inhibiting conceptions of pseudo-scarcity in the cultural world (i.e. based on the assumption that the free flow of culture needs to be restricted through excessive copyrights etc...).

'''Can we help you? How to support us?'''

# '''We are conducting [[P2P Seminars]] to assist individuals, organizations and society at large in their efforts to adapt to the new participative world''' based on social innovation. See the [[Testimonials]] page for some reactions. And here is a version of our slide presentation at [http://www.slideshare.net/farsam/web-politics-20 Slideshare]
