Q90 (P30:Q46)
Working on decentralized P2P resources management.

Why should Ebay, Amazon or la Fnac have de facto a monoply in ranking our options to get a given resource? Why our ranking options are limited to the sole price? Why can't we use platforms where buying options are compared with renting, repairing, making, gifts alternatives? Where ranking algorithms are the result of our social, environmental, political(?) preferences? Why the information exchange platforms offer is largely only vendors propaganda and rarely balanced with the opinion of, say, Greenpeace, consumer associations, or just communities of peers? Because those exchange platforms are centralized : we urgently need decentralized resources management systems! This reasoning was the result of my master thesis on marketing toxicity, using Bernard Stieglers work, and ways to do things differently, giving Doc Searls works all the attention it deserves http://maxlath.eu/p2p-rm

This theoretical background being set, I now try to make those alternatives real and took the plunge into web development: not much to show yet; it will take the time it needs but we need those alternative propositions and I won't let it go!
