  • 22. Third Place .... (3)
  • 23. The Rise of Third Place
    • The term “Third Place” was first coined and used by Prof. Ray Oldenburg to describe public spaces complementary the role of Home (First Place) and Office (Second Place).
    • Good examples are Social Clubhouses, Cafes etc. So are different forms of social organizations.
    • Third Places are very important for work, social and recreational purposes, as well as personal development and actualization.
  • 24. The Rise of Third Place …
    • Third Places feature prominently in leading property development projects, world-wide and are highly valued socially.
    • With globalization and job-outsourcing / business start-ups, Third Places take on even more important role in the family, work and social lives of individuals.
    • They serve the family, working and social needs.
  • 25. Types of Third Places
    • There are many categories of Third Places, some are even virtual, most are physical.
    • The Internet is world’s largest Third Place, so to speak (Some to prefer to call it the 4 th Place).
    • With wide-spread practice of job outsourcing / business start-ups, co-working spaces are becoming important Third Places
  • 26. Co-Working Spaces
    • Such evolving Third Place that serves the following purposes:
      • Business Startup & Weekly Meet-ups
      • Collaborative Community / Networking
      • Community Services
    • Evolution of Co-Working Space
      • Co-Working
      • Co-Housing
      • Co-operative Common
      • Open Source Ecology / Gift Economy
  • 27. Open Source Ecology
    • The Open Source Ecology (OSE) project is truly a fantastic concept. It beautifully combines the following elements which can be classified as “hi-tech” and “hi-touch” while attempting cooperatively to attain sustainable lifestyles in a crisis-laden global environment:
      • Open Source Software (OSS) technology / approach
      • Peer-to-Peer (P2P) methodology
      • Appropriate Technology (AT)
      • Energy Descend (Peak Oil or Power-down) Transition Movement
      • Permaculture or regenerative land use design
    • The objective or goal at Open Source Ecology is to develop tools and technologies in the public domain for sustainable and just living. When engineering and technologies are part of the public domain, they benefit everyone
  • 28. Gift Economy
    • Information is particularly suited to gift economics, as information can be copied and transmitted at practically no cost. It can be treated as a nonrival good : when you share information, you do not deprive yourself of the information.
    • Traditional scientific research is an information gift economy. Scientists produce research papers and give them away through journals and conferences. Other scientists freely refer to such papers. All scientists can therefore benefit from the increased pool of knowledge.
    • The free software community is an information gift economy. Programmers make their source code available, allowing anyone to copy and modify or improve the code. People may benefit from any improvements.
    • This is the essence of P2P (Peer-to-Peer) economy.
  • 29. Neo-Subsistence
    • That is the term “we apply to a lifestyle where people produce tangible (physical) wealth, as opposed to dealing with information in the information economy. We are talking about basics: even though we live in the information economy, we cannot deny the reality that human prosperity is founded on the provision of physical needs upon which the meeting of all higher needs is predicated. Neo-subsistence is related to the information economy in that the information economy is a foundation for neo-subsistence ”
    • The project is of considerable importance because it represents a concerted effort that is derived from a synthetic understanding of sustainability, and the very concrete effort to build a self-sustaining, but also open and therefore trading global village, which combines local production with cooperation on a global scale around open global design.
  • 30. Neo-Subsistence ….
    • The project is first of all a farm, with naturally self-replicating plants and animals, but at the same time it is an attempt to combine this with a self-sustaining environment for the flexible manufacturing towards local needs.
    • His, partially misnamed because misleading ‘open farm’ project (it is so much more than that), as it combines permaculture with permafacture , i.e. sustainable manufacturing, is perhaps the most important social experiment in the world…..
  • 31. Neo-Subsistence ….
    • This is a template that combines with energy decent programs like the Transition Movement , policy governance paradigms like bioregionalism , and regenerative land use like permaculture design (although to do justice to both permaculture and bioregionlism it is hardly fair to classify either as anything short of radical earth-centric philosophies)
    • This kind of open source technology and innovation is why the internet is our greatest hope for catalyzing a global transformation to a regenerative culture...and I am happy to see open source's rich creative potential being applied to meet tangible everyday human needs…… and on their blog

  • 37. So, what are we selling …?
    • In the market economy, there can be recognized five types of economic offering as follows:
      • Agrarian
      • Industrial
      • Service
      • Experience
      • Transformation
    • We like to classify ourselves as the last category, even though the SOHOLUTION approach certainly contains the other elements as well.
    • You can definitely recognize the relevant components as you explore deeper and participate actively in the full range of offerings.
