Anti-Google Glass 'Stop The Cyborgs' campaign launches | Digital Trends | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

A new group named Stop The Cyborgs has started up a campaign against Google Glass to draw attention to the dangers of human/tech collaboration.”There will no longer be any distinction between the ‘digital world’ and the ‘real world’. People will make decisions and interact with other humans in the real world in a way which increasingly depends on information that Google Glass tells them.gets worse: “Gradually people will stop acting as autonomous individuals, when making decisions and interacting with others, and instead become mere sensor/effector nodes of a global network. There will be no room for multiple identities, hypocrisy or experimentation. There will be no space in which you can escape your online profile and the system will be controlled by a small group of corporations.”

We still need to take time and be still, but this does allow a certain understanding to bring that about.

An older presentation but very relevant. Provides context to the 3.0 movement.

40% of America’s workforce will be freelancers by 2020 | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

The debate over telecommuting that Yahoo has spurred raises an important issue, but it's not simply about workplace flexibility or telecommuting, but rather the fundamental nature of work itself. By 2020, more than 40% of the US workforce will be so called contingent workers. We are quickly becoming a nation of permanent freelancers and temps.

Trudy Raymakers's insight:

The crippling of mental health care is taking place in Europe too: de-institutionalisation, budgetcuts, decentralisation and the hope the neighbourhoods and families will provide. Maybe they will some time in the future but the transition zone will be very problematic I think.

Literature Trends Show That No One Wants to Feel Anything But Scared

Literature Trends Show That No One Wants to Feel Anything But Scared | Futurewaves | Scoop.it
You know that feeling you get when you are reading a book and the language is so emotive and beautiful that it makes you want to break down and weep? Unless you're a fan of the classics, probably not.A new study out of the Universities of Bristol, Sheffield, and Durham shows that literature over the past 100 years has become increasingly emotionless, unless that emotion is fear, in which case we modern folks loooove being scurred.

Laura Brown's comment, March 22, 2013 1:10 PM
Complicated though, because logically you would think it smart to write what sells. Likely most publishers would push for that too. But, at some point it all gets stale and repetitive. Something new would have a good chance but people have tried for ever to figure out what the next trend will be, what will catch on in a big way. It's very hard to predict.
Trudy Raymakers's comment, March 23, 2013 3:27 AM
I agree with you. Sometimes it is a logical next step, sometimes it is resting on an underlying trend but accidentally picked up big (Fifty shades, Harry Potter?)

30 Incredible Ways Technology Will Change Education By 2028

30 Incredible Ways Technology Will Change Education By 2028 | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Technology is changing at a rapid pace, so much so that it’s challenging to grasp. While there is little uniformity in technology, there are somrends worth noting that have spurred tangent innovation, including speed, size, and connectivity (through always-on apps and social media). What happens to technology in the next 15 years may not simply impact learning in a typical cause-effect relationship. Rather, it might be the case that one absorbs the other, where information access, socializing ideas, and creative collaboration may be organic and completely invisible.

Who Owns the Future? by Jaron Lanier – review

Who Owns the Future? by Jaron Lanier – review | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

The groundbreaking computer scientist (who also wrote "no you are not a gadget" )asks whether we have given up too much power to the big digital corporations.

Trudy Raymakers's insight:

Lanier is concerned about the enormous destruction of jobs; the fact that nobody gets paid for information (he describes an alternative: the humanistic information economy) and the total lack of an informationpowerbalance. He gives examples and aks fundamental philosofical questions. The review by Laurence Scott is a very good one.

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, March 23, 2013 9:02 PM

As a writer, I find this set of predictions both interesting and, well, less than overwhelming. I'd like to see more creativity, especially with regard to the "least likely" possibilities, and less focus on tech companies. I'm more interested in thinking about what life might be like, than in which social media giant is on top. What predictions do you have, and what do you think are the odds for or against?

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 19, 2013 5:11 PM
