Event Navigation

For generations scientists have broken through new technological frontiers offering great promise for society. Instead of opportunity, market barriers have quickly been established by those fearing competition. Today’s smart phone is rumoured to be protected by some 250,000 patents.

The good news is that the commons movement is aggressively sidestepping these roadblocks via the market activism inherent in peer-to-peer relationships. How can we play a role? Come along to find out more.
