    Hey James,

    Was wondering what you think of this ex-CIA guy Robert David Steele going on alt media shows talking about ‘Open Source’.

    James, I am wondering if you have tried to set up a P2P group re even maybe just barter exchange of foods, time, in your own neighbourhood.
    I though a separate stream, or something for people who are doing it, to talk about their experiences, share lessons learned and so forth. There must be a few people out there who are trying to set up groups of like minded people to start such a community. Rather than keep reinventing the wheel, we can share experiences and lessons, and help to push our groups along faster.

    MESH networking sure seems like a future bright spot. We will see the MESH network trend take off as individuals come up with creative viable personal benefits. There is nothing like the spark of a little personal financial incentive in order to light a fire.
    ANECDOTES –
    In the very early 1960’s, I was visiting distant relatives who are farmers in the far south Texas Rio Grande Valley. Local farmers had gotten together and built their own community swimming pool. They often would share farm machinery and even their hired labor pool.
    — — — Black Communities prior to Integration. – – –
    In the 70’s I had a nice long conversation with a very old African American friend. I was asking him to tell me about the segregated Black Communities prior to the mid 1950’s. He told me how wonderful his life was at that time because the Black community had its own flourishing businesses and entertainment; such as movie theatres, restaurants, retail stores, and the like. He told me how integration destroyed the community’s infrastructure and the dollars floated out to the White Man. But yet, blacks were discriminated against.
    — — — Hobo Communities – – –
    In the early 80’s, I once hired a real old-timer Hobo from the era of Hobo communities. His stories of the Hobo Camps and their comradery was fascinating…Bring a can of food to throw into the stew kettle was the entrance fee. He resented JFK who did away with the Hobo camps. His value system was a bit different. He was missing some toes because of frostbite. One night it was supposed to get about 18 degrees F. I gave him some extra money so he could get a Motel room. Instead, he opted for a bottle that night and slept in a dumpster covered by cardboard and newspaper. Mogen David 20/20 and he were good friends.

    I would love to see James Corbett interview David Blume. David Blume has some cool real life exposure on how communities can flourish making their own extremely viable fuel which also facilitates organic food production. And there are many other benefits, including the non-support of Big Oil or literally cleaning the air by running your car.

    I got interested in the networking side of P2P around 2001. Andy Oram’s book, Peer-to-Peer: Harnessing the Power of Disruptive Technologies, is interesting for providing examples of different network possibilities. Tor is one of the one of the P2P networking applications that is most widely used today: https://www.torproject.org/ OpenVPN is another popular networking technology that can be used off to the shelf to implement P2P networks.

    The Podcast focuses on the idea of economic P2P. PayPal, EBay, and Bitcoin are somewhat analogous to P2P in an economic transaction sense – although PayPal and EBay are not full analogs, depending in part on central commercialized meeting places that charge a small fee. Amazon Digital has become a version of that model for self-publishing EBooks.
