Jeff Jarvis: "Social insurance?"
Paul Miller: "friend’s bicycle had been stolen... wasn’t insured conventionally... asked us all to message back if we would be willing to put in £20 for a new bike which would then be presented as a surprise... there might be something in ’social insurance’."
Ivan Pope: "privatised the management of it... we need some imagination, some ambition and some skill to build these back again as social communities"
Historically, when people are free to assemble & associate, they self-organize insurance, cooperatively. Later it became the centralized, professionalized industry we know today. I predict there'll be some kind of massive craigslistification of insurance by April 27, 2018. It's about de-institutionalization -- not from the government borg (social security), not from the corporate borg (AIG). The New Social [graph] Security. Decentralized, self-organized. Not just DIY, but DIO (Do It Ourselves). That the big theme for everything now.
