The Open Structures | Open It Agency | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Although the Open Structures project is around for a while for some it might still seem in an early stage. As the people of Open Structures told us, they were caught up in an art-gallery context during the last years but now working slowly their way beyond that.

Why TED matters more than ever in an age of digital democracy - The Guardian (blog)

Why TED matters more than ever in an age of digital democracy - The Guardian (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It always takes a while after TED to come to terms with what happened. It's supposed to get easier, but after my fifth year, I still have the same reaction.

A Tale of Two TEDs: Ideas Conference Triumphant on 30th Anniversary - Wired

A Tale of Two TEDs: Ideas Conference Triumphant on 30th Anniversary - Wired | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

VANCOUVER — It’s a few hours before the official opening of this year’s TED conference, and architect David Rockwell is showing me around the elaborate new theatre that houses the annual festival of ideas. A combination of Shakespeare’s Globe and the cozy amphitheater at TED’s original site in Monterey, California, it looks like the result of months of hard construction. But only a week ago, it was empty space.

Some hackers are bad. But a lot are good: Keren Elazari at TED2014 | TED Blog | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In 2010, the late security researcher — or as cybersecurity expert Keren Elazari would like you to call him, the late hacker — Barnaby Jack found a security flaw in two different models of automated teller machines (ATMs). Onstage at a tech security conference, hepublicly demonstrated his ability to make these machines spit out paper money, Elazari says at TED2014. “Barnaby Jack could have easily turned to a career criminal,” she says, “but he chose to show the world his research instead. Sometimes you have to demo a threat to spark a solution.”

▶ Bicycle Culture by Design: Mikael Colville-Andersen at TEDxZurich - YouTube

The focus on re-establishing more liveable cities continues unabated. The primary problem however is that 85 years of traffic engineering revolving around the car has failed miserably. It's time for modern thinking. Design can help. Historically, streets were human spaces. Let's design our cities like we design toasters or smartphones, following the desire lines of our citizens. Using basic design principles instead of engineering is the surest route to developing thriving, human cities.

At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
