The Sharing Economy: New Opportunities for Citizen-Based Developments. Palo Alto, California, 11/22/2004.
In the sharing economy of the 21st century, people prosper by giving away what they possess and create – and the more people learn how to do it, the more each can prosper. Neither utopian nor impractical, this "cornucopia of the commons" isn't true for all people, all enterprises, all resources – but it has already generated significant economic, social, and knowledge capital for early adopters.

Imaginify Free Culture, Bioneers Conference (Beaming), Lane Community College, Oregon, 10/17/2004.
How do Intellectual property restrictions on ecological media (e.g. print, sound and film) limit the dialogue and avenue for co-creation and collaboration between creative people? What means are at our fingertips to facilitate a greater accessibility to pertinent information in this day and age? Imagine if you had access to a commons of information, an idea fountain that helps build upon the work and dedication of individuals and institutions for what thrivable activities we’ve dedicated our time and effort to. We can manifest the world we envision. This multi-media dialogue and discussion will bridge a range of subjects from Stanford Law professor, Lawrence Lessigs Free Culture to Creative Commons to Free and Open Source Alternatives.
