Commons Based Peer Production (CBPP) means collaborative production and sharing of resources among peers under commons settings. From the initial cases, such as Wikipedia and FLOSS, recently there has been an expansion to other areas of activity, such as citizen science, product design, management of common spaces and open data sources.
The mission of the Directory of Commons Based Peer Production is mapping the diffusion and hybridization of peer production by collecting and typifying digital platforms or projects that are Commons Based Peer Productions (CBPP).
The directory currently holds more than 300 cases of CBPP such as platforms for collective research, citizen journalism, peer to peer financing, and hackerspaces. Projects that produce software, hardware, texts, images, videos, music or sounds, collaborative research projects that give access to the data, and produce resources for public use.
The directory serves as a valuable tool for anyoneinterested on CBPP such as “commoners”, “prosumers” or researchers. It also aims to give visibility to the CBPP and support the networking among CBPP projects.
The directory itself is based on collaborative production. Join the collaborative mapping of CBPP: Reuse and remix the data, insert new cases, send your feedback on the directory design, etc. The data contributed to the directory is published with an open license and accessible through our API or for downloaded in various formats.
To celebrate the launch we will be hosting a P2Pvalue Data Jam 12th March 2014, a collective effort to populate the directory and document as many examples of CBPP as possible.
Additionally, on the day we will be having a live streamed program with introduction to the P2Pvalue project, and with instruction on how to use the directory and discussion around CBPP issues. Starting at 11:30 am (+1 GMT), Mayo Fuster Morell (IGOPnet.cc) will talk about the P2Pvalue research on delimitation criteria of CBPP and the conditions that favor CBPP. (12:45h) David Rozas (University of Surrey) will explain the directory from a technical perspective. (13:45h) Antonio Tenorio (UCM) will present Kune, a decentralized platform also resulting from the P2Pvalue project. (17h) There will be presentations of cases such as Guifi.net (by Jaume Barcelo and Pedro) and (18h) Goteo.org (by Maria G. Perulero). Finally (19h), there will be a discussion group on “Analyzing value in CBPP experiences” moderated by Mayo Fuster Morell and with interventions by Michel Bauwens (P2PFoundation), Marco Berlinguer (IGOPnet.cc) and Marcos García (Medialab Prado).

The directory development is supported by the European ProjectP2Pvalue.eu(Techno-social platform for sustainable models and value generation in commons-based peer production in the Future Internet), and promoted by a consortium of organizations including P2Pvalue project partner members (mainly: IGOPnet.cc (conceptualization and coordination of CBPP Directory), University of Surrey (technical development of the Directory) and P2P Foundation (dissemination of the Directory)), and the contribution of the other partners of the project GRASIA – Complutense University of Madrid, CNRS and University of Milan), and the support of the Spanish Chapter of Open Knowledge Foundation, among others.
