    • 3. The Participatory Turn
      From the industrial value chain…
      producer  distributor  consumer
      …to the participative Web:
      (as user)
      produser
      (as producer)
      content
      content
    • 4. Produsage
      Key principles of produsage environments:
      Open Participation, Communal Evaluation:the community as a whole, if sufficiently large and varied, can contribute more than a closed team of producers, however qualified
      Fluid Heterarchy, Ad Hoc Meritocracy:produsers participate as is appropriate to their personal skills, interests, and knowledges; this changes as the produsage project proceeds

      Key principles of produsage environments:
      Open Participation, Communal Evaluation:the community as a whole, if sufficiently large and varied, can contribute more than a closed team of producers, however qualified
      Fluid Heterarchy, Ad Hoc Meritocracy:produsers participate as is appropriate to their personal skills, interests, and knowledges; this changes as the produsage project proceeds
      Unfinished Artefacts, Continuing Process:content artefacts in produsage projects are continually under development, and therefore always unfinished; their development follows evolutionary, iterative, palimpsestic paths
      Common Property, Individual Merit:contributors permit (non-commercial) community use of their intellectual property, and are rewarded by the status capital

    • 8. Produsage and Business
      Professional? Amateur? Both?
      Pro-Ams work at their leisure, regard consumption as a productive activity and set professional standards to judge their amateur efforts. (Leadbeater & Miller, 2004)
      Connectors between produsage communities and business interests
      Alternatively:
      Lead users (von Hippel, 2005)
      Community leaders
      Prosumers? (Toffler, 1970)

    • 10. Beware the Prosumer
      Dreams of a “customer-activated manufacturing system”:
      In the end, the consumer, not merely providing the specs but punching the button that sets this entire process in action, will become as much a part of the production process as the denim-clad assembly-line worker was in the world now dying. (The Third Wave, 1980: 274)
      Producer and consumer, divorced by the industrial revolution, are reunited in the cycle of wealth creation, with the customer contributing not just the money but market and design information vital for the production process. Buyer and supplier share data, information, and knowledge. Someday, customers may also push buttons that activate remote production processes. Consumer and producer fuse into a “prosumer.” (Powershift, 1990: 239)

    • 12. Towards Pro/Am Collaboration
      Establishing the ‘netarchistfirm’:
      They are ‘acceptable’ intermediaries for the actors of … participatory culture. (Bauwens, 2005)
      Breaking down corporate boundaries
      Working with the community, but for profit
      Establishing heterarchical governance structures
      Transcending copyright as the central business model

    • 14. Joining Production and Produsage
      Requirements for Pro/Am Projects:
      Shared Responsibility and Control:neither side controls the project outright, and each must respect the other’s interests; governance mechanisms must support a sharing of responsibility
      Mobility between Community and Corporation:participants – especially Pro-Ams – must be able to move between the two sides with ease; this also creates incentives for staff and community to participate

      Redesign of Products as Evolving Artefacts:disruptions of the ongoing, incremental produsage process in order to package outcomes as complete ‘products’ are disruptive and unacceptable
      Acceptance of Non-Exclusive Corporate Use of Content:corporations cannot expect to gain exclusive rights to user-created content, but neither can communities fully rule out commercial use

    • 18. Canaries in the Coalmine
      Journalism in transition:
      Current models failing – badly
      Silver bullet solutions doubtful (paywalls, iPad delivery)
      Credible participatory models emerging
      Global crises amplify interest in the news
      Will we see new Pro-Am frameworks develop here?
