The European Commission Wants High Speed Broadband Everywhere. But Is It Worth It? | Forbes.com | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Here in Europe, we are usually keen to  depict ourselves as a developed, technologically advanced region. We love to quote Copenhagen, Barcelona, Amsterdam, London, as leading models for aspiring “smart cities” of all over world. However, this is only part of the picture.

 

Side by side with the Europe of urban conglomerates and shiny districts, there is the Europe of the countryside, of small town and villages where time seems to have stopped and everything is slower, Internet access included.  According to official figures, only18% of European rural households have access to high-speed broadband.

 

Not a staggering figure indeed, when you consider that over 56 % of the population in the 27 Member States lives in rural areas. Even in cities, conditions are not always outstanding. Investment in broadband networks is falling short and overall only 64% of EU households have available 30 Mbps and just 3% have connections of 100 Mbps.

 

A far cry from the goals set by the European Digital Agenda: to have 100% of EU households with at least 30 Mbps broadband and 50% households with access to 100 Mbps or more by 2020.

 

That’s why the European Commission is launching today the Connected Communities initiative, which aims at identifying and supporting a number of innovative pilot projects for deploying high speed broadband across the Union.

 

The initiative, the Commission said in a note, “will map potential European broadband projects, and identify the most mature ones, which will be prioritized for “technical assistance” services under the Connected Europe Facility (CEF), in partnership between the European Commission and the World Bank”.

 

“Technical assistance”, translated from the language of Brussels’ bureaucrats here stands for help in developing a business model, advice on the forms of financing available, and on the legal aspects involved, especially for what concerns state aid screening, as the Commission has defined special rules to assist in the granting of state aid for broadband in ways that do not harm competition.

Things Get Weird When Objects Get Hooked up to the Internet

Things Get Weird When Objects Get Hooked up to the Internet | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Thermostats are just the start.

 

With the flood of new connected services and devices on the market, knowing how future users might hook them together or find unexpected new uses is a challenge, no matter what Silicon Valley’s confident young bucks may tell us. A service called IFTTT is giving us an interesting peek into the practical, clever and slightly weird ways people want to use the Internet of Things (IoT).

 

As a user-friendly dashboard that allows non-experts to fit feeds from favorite media, utilities (like cloud storage, social networks, home devices) and wearables in new combinations, or “recipes,” IFTTT is putting a broad array of tech in people’s hands for experimentation. Think of it as a friendly front end to the myriad of data connections and mashup of programming it would normally require to get our favorite apps and devices to talk together.

 

Users can do things are practical, like backup certain tagged photos to the cloud, find out when an apartment is available or highly personal, such as satisfying secret Kardashian fetishes.

ThingLink has been around for quite some time and is a great tool for educators. This summer they are running a professiona development program which is free and self-paced (and it is not too late to join). For more information on this opportunity check out the Google+ Community.

ThingLink has also just launched a new video tagging tool. For more information on that check out the post.

"Juho Hamari and Jonna Koivisto of the University of Tampere in Finland have studied gamification extensively, and they've found that some students simply dislike competition. "Similarly," Hamari notes, "all students might not appreciate narratives and, for example, role-playing type of interactions."
