Amsterdam sort-of legalizing AirBnB | Beyond The Beyond | Wired.com | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“According to Alderperson Freek Ossel this form of rental is an “additional form of accommodation that dovetails with a hospitable Amsterdam.” However, to maintain its ‘occasional character’ persons renting out their property are allowed to do this for a maximum of four persons at a time and for a maximum of two months per year in total. Renting out a property longer than two months will be viewed by the supervisory agency as an indication of possible commercial activity. Tourist taxes will become obliged. Further regulations are negotiated to deal with nuisance and unsafe situations.

And give you two of the most important and most negleted gifts education can give you: Tools to build what you love, and freedom to actually do it.

Club of Amsterdam - Shaping Your Future in the Knowledge Society | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We are witnessing the transformation of consciousness and its influence in all our social systems at a planetary level. Economics is at the heart of this change as it profoundly impacts the ways in which society organizes, makes agreements, trades and write laws. In the emergent economics scene we are writing a new story, people are becoming architects, conscious consumers, storytellers, creators and players of a world that works for all. At the consciousness level we are entering into 'The era of flow' and a new expressive capacity for humanity. Come to be inspired and share about this evolution which potential is to shift humanity to a new order of consciousness and creativity

Social Safari » Amsterdam Sharing Capital

Social Safari » Amsterdam Sharing Capital | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

More and more people are sharing what they own, reusing what they have, and working together where they can. Citizen participation, social entrepreneurship and environmental responsibility have become increasingly common than in the last decades. For governmental organisations this leads to the question how they can jump on the bandwagon. And also, what are the remaining tasks for governments? What do citizens expect from a government when they are more self-organised? And are there people left out and forgotten when new networks and partnerships arise?

In line with the expressed wish of our King, his highness Willem Alexander, to improve  ‘verbondenheid’: cooperation and connectivity between people, I have established ‘het Ministerie van Digitale Infrastuctuur‘ (ministry of digital infrastructure NL #MinDigInfra) ‘van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden’. Such ministry must provide leadership and policy on the continuity and improvement of the digital infrastructural facilities that enable our interwoven communities, society and business ventures to flourish and create wealth in a trans-local and transnational context.

Luigi Cappel's curator insight, November 6, 2013 2:37 PM

Nice idea, I could see kids riding a little more perhaps, but I suspect most people who ride bikes in Amsterdam do so because it is the most convenient form of transport and of course they have bike paths. In other cities that are not so bike centric and where it is safe to ride bikes, this might be more effective in encouraging people onto two wheels.

Gilles Vanderstuyft's curator insight, November 20, 2013 8:02 AM

This article is about the renewing technology that the city of Amsterdam adapts in order to make life easier. Up till now everywhere you go within the city there is WiFi-connection as well as fiber broadband and LTE networks. At this very moment the Amsterdam Economic Board is working on ASC (Amsterdam Smart City), which  is basically a partnership between businesses, government, research institutions and the citizens of Amsterdam to develop the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area into a smarter city.

Hackerspacing in Europe: MadSpace in Eindhoven! | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Eindhoven has a very interesting history. Phillips was founded here back in the late 1800′s, with a single factory, but in the past century it grew into what could almost be called Philip’s City. A stretch of a few kilometers of Phillips buildings dominated Eindhoven and almost everyone worked for them. Fast forward to the present and most of the buildings have been sold and turned into other businesses.

Providing the information in the app requires accurate, up-to-date data from the various government entities on bike parking and strict enforcement zones. Luckily, when Romijn started developing Bike Like a Local, he already had a lot of experience with government open data. He’s developed several apps using open data, such as Openbaar Vervoer, which gives realtime status for Dutch public transport.
