What is the future of the Internet of Things? | Web design | Creative Bloq - Linkis.com | Futurewaves | Scoop.it
Brandon Schmittling considers a future where devices as we know them are changing forever.

Smartphones are stupid. In fact, all devices are stupid. They make us dependent, they demand that we respond to commands, they're expensive and they cut us off from the people around us. Our obsession with them is limiting our ability to create a more seamless, less intrusive digital world. We have the opportunity to create a 'connected' future – an 'internet of things' – that is so much more than 10 billion mobile devices flickering like stars in the sky. Due to recent breakthroughs in materials, that future is within our grasp  – the hard part will be in putting away our phones and embracing 'death to devices'.

Digital urbanism: The role of technology in the future of our cities | The Academy of Urbanism

Digital urbanism: The role of technology in the future of our cities | The Academy of Urbanism | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

The future form of towns and cities is a key issue for urban planners, designers and policymakers and one that divides opinion. There is a body of professional thought that believes we no longer need cities, at least in the relatively large, continuously connected form in which they have evolved over centuries. Instead, the view is that, connected online, people can now live in small-scale towns and villages, which are supposedly more humane. People can disconnect physically and reconnect online. This idea has huge appeal and is shared by many environmental campaigners because it is thought to reduce carbon footprints. It is a popular idea within the technology community and it has fans in many schools of architecture, planning and landscape design. But it is, I believe, fundamentally flawed.

 Futurist Thomas Frey: I had great difficulty completing this column. This is partly due to the complex nature of the technology and partly because its implications may indeed be so far reaching that I’ll sound over-reaching in describing it. Working from inside his secluded geek lab in Boston, Jake started this journey in 2011 by asking the basic question, “What if software didn’t have to be written?”

Extend Limits - TrendRede 2015: De schoonheid van ons perspectief

Extend Limits - TrendRede 2015: De schoonheid van ons perspectief | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Tony Bosma over de Trendrede 2015. “When patterns are broken new worlds emerge (Kupferberg). Er verandert veel en tegelijkertijd zo weinig. Economen blijven geobsedeerd door het eenzijdige begrip economische groei. Geloof is voor velen naast persoonlijk houvast nog altijd een bron voor wereldwijde onrust. De Russen lijken weer de vijand en de mens ziet afkomst, voorkeur en geografische grenzen als dé aanleiding om elkaar het leven onnodig zuur te maken. Traditionele media blijven uitblinken in de sturing van het collectieve bewustzijn en openen allemaal met hetzelfde nieuws.  ‘Goedenavond beste mensen, dit is het journaal van acht uur en dit is wat wij willen wat u denkt’. Schijnbare prijsreducties blijven de beste stimulans om onnodig overdadig aankoopgedrag te activeren. Native advertising, nieuwe technologie en big data zijn nodig om de klant voor je te winnen. Niets nieuws, nog altijd oude wijn in nieuwe zakken. De hand op de knip is in deze maatschappij, waarin de meest stabiele relatie die van schuldenaar en schuldeiser is, ongewenst. 2015 en verder: de uitdagingen worden er niet minder om de oplossingen uiteindelijk wel mooier. Wanneer zien we dat als samenleving in?
