P2P, the new narrative

Someone from my reading group provided a link to this article on the space between the old narrative and the not yet manifest new one. I was reminded of a couple of things from the article. First was Michael Moore's response to Sandy Hook here, addressing those deeper causes like poverty, fear/racism, and the 'me' generation.

And regarding the new narrative, it's already here and has been since the advent of the internet revolution. Like Krugman's story, and the similar one Steve provided, all echoing Rifkin's focus on a shift to distributed energy and lateral organizational dynamics. It's known in computer literature as peer to peer (P2P). An excellent seminal essay on the topic by one of my associates is at this link. Also see his website, P2P Foundation.
