"Can the Peeragogy project incorporate and create a viable business model, doing what a normal university does but using peer production and a cooperative structure as the basis?"
... and other peeragogues near and far. This is in very early stages, but I wanted to make you aware of the effort.
The video to accompany "Implementing feedback in creative systems: a workshop approach", by Joseph Corneli and Anna Jordanous http://iiia.csic.es/ainf15/ ~ http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-1407/ ... It's being screened in Buenos Aires just as I post it here, but internet connectivity at the venue is not great. As the workshop organizers requested, I sent an offline-friendly copy of the video to them in advance! Tech note: I used youtube-dl on Ubuntu to download the HOA.
My answers: (1) Well, this proposal is really about building places for computers to talk with each other, rather than talk with humans. Alan Turing suggested that "computers should be able to talk with each other to sharpen their wits" -- and they currently can, in domains like Chess and Go (which he predicted) but not in humanities subjects like poetry and music, although there are creative computational systems that make poetry and music. So, the proposal in this paper is a bit of an "inverse" of many other papers in the "AI and Feedback" workshop in this regard. (2) I wouldn't like for this assumption to be hidden, it should be made very explicit. However, we're also positioning the model as something that would be useful for talking about whatever kind of computational objects are accessible to the systems currently. For example, in the current work with FloWr that I showed briefly, although FloWr can create things we could call "poems", its native data structures are flowcharts (although we didn't show a picture of one of these flowcharts in the slides). Right now, we're working on filling in the steps for the system to be able to talk about these flowcharts. There are still lots of rules about how the modules fit together, and these have to be made explicit -- but there are less rules than there are for how we fit words and phrases together.
You are inner-directed, shrewd and strict.
You are authority-challenging: you prefer to challenge authority and traditional values to help bring about positive changes. You are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them. And you are self-conscious: you are sensitive about what others might be thinking about you.
Your choices are driven by a desire for self-expression.
You consider achieving success to guide a large part of what you do: you seek out opportunities to improve yourself and demonstrate that you are a capable person. You are relatively unconcerned with taking pleasure in life: you prefer activities with a purpose greater than just personal enjoyment.
The two-and-a-half-line summary in the quote below sums it up pretty well. I won't add more here now because it's already a long read.
