Tomorrow marks the 25th anniversary of Tim Berners-Lee’s initial proposal for what would become the World Wide Web. Think about how different media and technology were in 1989 from today. Now imagine how different things might look at a year that sounded like science fiction not that long ago: 2025.

In 2018, no company will have a chief digital officer. In fact, many will wonder why they ever had one. The CDO was a response by the management of many manufacturing, services and agency businesses to the emergence of a set of networks, devices and protocols that created new consumer behaviours, new businesses, new media and communication experiences.

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’.

It's a tale of many sides. Most often we only get the positives of digitalization, while those speaking for the negative are hauled off to a padded cell. But a Berlin summit wants us all to come together.

Closing the gap between executives and digital transformation - Enterprise Irregulars | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Many organizations today are findings themselves at the digital crossroads: They have an enormous stake in how the business operates today, yet the world is changing at an all-time fast rate, requiring ever greater commitment to change, often down multiple competing paths. The frustration is knowing which are short-term fads and which actually represent crucial long-term shifts in the technology market that organizations simply must invest in.

8A Nathan's curator insight, February 27, 2015 2:34 AM

In dumps all over Africa,  Africans are taking in what seems like useless E-junk and are finding ways to recycle it. From the large disposal of old technology as Africa moves forward, areas are filled with large amounts of what is junk to some could be worth a lot more after processing takes place. Many unorganized workers go there everyday at risk of their own health for the livelihood of their families. In some places the E-waste is taken to more organized facilitates where decent technology can be sold at stores for large amounts of money, but in other areas it is collected to survive. 


This article helped me understand how Africa is moving forward with technology, and that Africans are resourceful. The article stated that the E-Junk was hidden very well by the government, so it was pretty awesome when poor African families found all this stuff and are being resourceful and making money from it. This article made me sad that people have to do this to gain wealth but it also showed me how productive Africans can be.

Now, more than ever, businesses need to have digital transformation in mind.  However, digital transformation cannot be fueled only from IT – all lines of business and operational processes need to be aligned.  For example, marketing can benefit greatly from social and data analytics with a deeper understanding of the consumer's wants.  Armed with technology, businesses can take advantage of predictive marketing and provide enhanced customer service for an integrated experience.

Nathan Hansen: Our digital world, scary and exciting in equal measure - Winona Daily News | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We’re connected 24/7 to smartphones, tablets, computers and smart devices from televisions to cars. All those devices store our personal information — when we ask them to. I’m just as guilty as anyone, linking my smartphone to Google and Facebook, instantly connecting me and my 200 “closest” friends to what I do and importing all emails and phone numbers my contacts have shared with me the minute I logged on with my smartphone.

Your Digital Afterlives - Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Most transhumanists are already familiar with digitalism, even if they haven’t heard the name. Digitalism uses ideas from computer science to develop new ways of thinking about old topics. Writers like Ed Fredkin, Hans Moravec, Frank Tipler, Nick Bostrom, and Ray Kurzweil are digitalists. Typically, digitalists are scientists, rationalists, naturalists, and atheists. Nevertheless, they have worked out novel and deeply meaningful ways of thinking about things like ghosts, souls, gods, resurrection, and reincarnation.

The App Generation: How Today’s Youth Navigate Identity, Intimacy, and Imagination in a Digital World, by Howard Gardner and Katie Davis | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Any book featuring the phrase “today’s youth” in the subtitle immediately has me on edge. It conjures up a generation gap, “tune in, turn on, drop out” and brown acid. Updating this story, we enter a world of Miley Cyrus’ piercings, twerking and tongue aerobics.

Cyberlibertarians’ Digital Deletion of the Left | Jacobin | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The digital revolution, we are told everywhere today, produces democracy. It gives “power to the people” and dethrones authoritarians; it levels the playing field for distribution of information critical to political engagement; it destabilizes hierarchies, decentralizes what had been centralized, democratizes what was the domain of elites.
