How can innovation  disrupt unemployment and create meaningful work for everyone? How can we create a strong middle class innovation economy? Consider this opportunity: less than half of all people in the OECD countries are in the work force. Only a third of them are engaged in their work. Less than a quarter of the US human capacity is creating value in the economy. Imagine if innovative entrepreneurs can use modern technology to tailor jobs for everyone like they today can tailor products and

IBM - Device democracy - United States

IBM - Device democracy - United States | Media Aesthetics Lab | Scoop.it
Mitsuhiro Takemura's insight:

More than a billion intelligent, connected devices already comprise today’s “Internet of Things (IoT).” The expected proliferation of hundreds of billions more places us at the threshold of a transformation sweeping across the electronics industry and many others.

As the number of connected devices grows from billions to hundreds of billions, and as governments and corporations race to take control of devices and data, we need to save the IoT.

This “rescue” will require business and technology leaders to fundamentally rethink technology strategy by building solutions for radically lower cost, privacy and autonomy. Business models that guide these solutions must embrace highly efficient digital economies and create collaborative value, all while creating improved products and user experiences. How can executives prepare for digital success as the IoT keeps changing?

Alex Gluhak & Rob van Kranenburg: New instruments of governance for our societies | the internet of things

Mitsuhiro Takemura's insight:

Common sense seems to contradict our assumptions that citizens can be educated into breaking down their notion of autonomy, privacy and security into autonomies, privacies and securities, governments can be educated to dismantle themselves into semi-organized networks with flat and efficient properties, and industry to rethink their business models. Common sense, however, also shows us throughout history that changes in data information models (print, radio, tv, web) have been disruptive to the extent of revolutions breaking down both the good and efficient in the old systems. Will people keep paying taxes to a system that does not deliver the services they want and expect? Isn’t it likely that they will organize in smart cities that are more like gated communities, the fastest rising form of building already now in the USA? If as we believe solidarity in generic infrastructure is the key issue, then the question of desirability needs to be reframed in terms of urgency. How much time do we have left before our current forms of organization break under the weight of growing self- organization capabilities? And how do we salvage the strengths of that system: inclusiveness, generic infrastructure, short term vs long term planning? While there are certainly plenty issues of acceptance, we believe that our proposal opens up a framework for debating this.
