Flows of Resources
Networks of value flows are created when processes are linked together through flows of resources.
This forms an economic network, where resources flow from agent to agent to agent via events. These resource flow networks do not care about company or national boundaries. And the resources themselves can be anything of value: tangible or intangible, materials, ideas, work, kudos, money, alternative currencies, whatever.
Flows of value in which you can participate
Like Activity Streams, but about value network activities.
- Needs, ideas, offers, requests, plans, new recipes, creations, work to do, stuff we need, income, exchanges
- You will be able to subscribe to feeds from networks, with selections of types of activity.
- You will be able to respond: offer work, stuff, money, ideas, requests, orders, improvements, etc.
- You will be able to publish into the value streams.
A little value flow....
This is a (simplified) very specific example taken from the Open Value Network (OVN) Sensorica, where contributions to processes are rewarded according to agreed upon rules when there is income.
... another little value flow....
Producing and exchange olive oil and coffee, even more simplified.
... to thinking bigger.
