For a many to many P2P network the OVN uses a suprising amount of many to one descriptions. For example calling it a brand. Asking people to join instead of branching but failing to join itself. Beware the wheel, its already been done.
One example, amongst many in the ecosystem is karma.
Norms can be edged mapped to provide sliders for value filtering. Do you want the libertarian trolling, the new age optimism, the skeptical evidence standards or the planked business focus?
karma.ourproject.org allows participants to rate each others comments allowing the automatic expulsion and prohibition of users that have a low karma from the topic. Thus all topics can be open using reputation to replace heirarchy. The edge ranked rating system is the same as used on advogato, slashdot and similar to reddit but for group editing like google docs (using wave).
The OVN can use the reputation system to rate orthagonal norms as well as people. This would allow for branching, pruning and consolidating norm value packages (eg safe space nonviolence standards vs trigger happy satanist standards vs freethinker rationality standards). Many of theses standards sets are already written (and often jokingly called bibles) and vitally important for bullying everywhere. Oooops, I mean gatekeeping.
When combined with fluid proxy forums they become a powerful instrument. The real joy of this is taking existing norms and implementing them. For example I implemented a "take it outside" policy for the anarchist philosophies group on personal attacks. Simply to get their personal attack/troll wars to stop popping trigger posts to the top. having a personal attack rating and filter setting could do it automatically. Implementing a number of public views (filter sets) on top of this is not hard

I have written a post on graph currencies that account for value transfers through a network model, as an alternative for today's zero-sum currencies that transfer value in discrete sums. Would love to get feedback.

Using Data from Sensors and Worker feedback to analyze the performance of your workforce and then to ask the good workers to work more and the rest to fire them.

It's called Purposeful Darwinism in #Amazon 's circles.

Doesn't the Open Value Network have the same concepts?

Reasons why I hate The Blockchain – tell me I'm wrong please

[I wrote this last night 19th January 2016 Bali time. I just read this morning that BitCoin is dead (or near to death) because it's "full". Ha! Well I know that The Blockchain and BitCoin are not exactly the same but funny, eh? Anyway, this document is about The Blockchain. Have fun!]

An interesting course at Stanford; it looks like you can get the good bits for free by following this publication on Medium: https://medium.com/the-industrialist-s-dilemma

Introducing The Industrialist’s Dilemma

The Industrialist’s Dilemma is a new course at the Stanford Graduate School of Business that runs in the Winter of 2016, and is being taught by Stanford GSB Lecturer and XSeed Capital General Partner Robert Siegel (@robsiegel), Box CEO Aaron Levie (@levie), and is advised by Sapphire Ventures Vice President Max Wessel (@maxwellelliot).
Retail. Life Sciences. Transportation. Healthcare. Hospitality. What do all these industries have in common? Up until just a couple of years ago, they were largely insulated from the rules of technological disruption, and yet, all of a sudden they’re now the targets of some of the most heavily funded, talented tech companies on the planet.
Just as Marc Andreessen described that software eating the world four years ago, startups today are able to harness the power of cheaper computing, unlimited data storage, ubiquitous internet and smartphones, contract manufacturing, and improved digital experiences to attack industries that haven’t changed for decades or centuries. While for years the tech industry had been squarely focused on optimizing known tech problems –building faster search engines or a better phone– all this digital power is causing a set of entrepreneurs to explore brand new solutions to nearly every legacy industry.
Startups like Uber and Lyft tackled on-demand transportation, changing the taxi mark, car ownership, insurance, and other adjacent spaces forever; Airbnb recognized our digital universe could connect surplus real estate supply with latent demand for a unique disruption on hospitality; 23andMe combined ever-cheapening genetic testing with big data to provide completely new ways to improve your health, and potentially even discover new drugs in the process; Nest combined the power of cloud computing, elegant software and hardware design, and contract manufacturing to disrupt the home appliance business, and now go after the entire connected home.
These startups benefit from zero legacy organizational baggage, little government overhead, some of the best software talent in the world, relatively cheap startup capital, and no brand reputation to jeopardize when attempting new unproven feats (like letting people rent out their bedrooms to strangers).
Comparatively, the biggest businesses in these industries have honed their strategies, built up assets, invested in government regulation, designed their business models, and hired talent to deliver products that are looking more and more out-of-date by the day. This is The Industrialist’s Dilemma: the systems, management and assets that led to success in the industrial era are holding incumbents back today, in some cases fatally.

Hi all, I've just join this community. My name is Numa, I live in Buenos Aires. I'm joining this community as we (GoPacifia) are looking to develop an emancipatory economic system based on OVN, and a mutual credit system with time as the measurement of value. And for it we need to develop a decentralized software which allows for all this. We don't have programmers yet in the group so we are currently learning about all this great stuff hoping we'll be able to use and adapt existing technologies and softwares for your purpose.

Our website is www.gopacifia.org the info in english is a bit old, I recommend the spanish site if you manage to read in spanish: www.gopacifia.org/es
