The death of the artist—and the birth of the creative entrepreneur - Quartz

The death of the artist—and the birth of the creative entrepreneur - Quartz | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Pronounce the word artist, to conjure up the image of a solitary genius. A sacred aura still attaches to the word, a sense of one in contact with the numinous. “He’s an artist,” we’ll say in tones of reverence about an actor or musician or director. “A true artist,” we’ll solemnly proclaim our favorite singer or photographer, meaning someone who appears to dwell upon a higher plane. Vision, inspiration, mysterious gifts as from above: such are some of the associations that continue to adorn the word.

Make 2015 the Year You Finally Launch Your Own Startup - Huffington Post | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Around the world we are facing unprecedented unemployment -- even in the developed world. Youth are particularly hard hit. In 2014 more than 1.6 million students graduated from American colleges and universities. Many moved directly into the swollen ranks of the unemployed. After taking on enormous debt to finance their studies, they ended up competing for unpaid internships or low-paying jobs for which their education is irrelevant. This violates the tacit pact made with them: If they were industrious, law-abiding and diligent students, their lives would be prosperous.

Utility 3.0: How to Democratize Energy in the U.S.

Utility 3.0: How to Democratize Energy in the U.S. | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Among those concerned with the United States' energy future—including, increasingly, the utility companies themselves—the business model known as "Utility 2.0" appears as a beacon of hope. Utility 2.0 addresses the concerns of both energy watchdogs and conventional electricity utilities by offering the latter financial incentives to adopt greener, more flexible infrastructure. But while this new paradigm presents solutions to many of the problems associated with centralized, fossil fuel-reliant power grids, some argue that it does not go far enough. In a December 2014 report from the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, John Farrell makes the case for a more radical shift, which he calls "Utility 3.0" or "energy democracy." By relocating control and ownership from the utilities to their customers, Farrell argues, Utility 3.0 allows communities to take advantage of the economic as well as the environmental benefits of the shift to clean energy.

Martin and his contemporaries were the first wave of Americans who grew up online, encountering home computers in the 1980s as young children. They taught themselves to write code, which they used to infiltrate networks for childish pranks and shared their adventures on primitive chat rooms. They outsmarted their parents, teachers and authorities. They basically had the run of the place.

How crony capitalism is undermining US entrepreneurship

How crony capitalism is undermining US entrepreneurship | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The Washington Post’s multipart series – led by Jim Tankersley and his team — on America’s struggling middle class is a must-read for policymakers. While I will have more to say on this next week, I did want to highlight the Thursday piece on the apparent decline in US entrepreneurship. Startups, especially those with dreams of expanding, are a huge source of jobs and innovation. They also apply competitive pressure on incumbents firms. Fewer startups means less competitive intensity in the economy. And a crony capitalist relationship between business and government could mean fewer startups. Tankersley:

The Growth of The Collaborative Movement - Huffington Post | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It is easy to understand why people have come to see entrepreneurship as a way to get rich quick. American culture adores the idea of the self-made hero, the lone wolf succeeding on the fringe of the establishment. With so many stories of startups turning into billion-dollar companies overnight, people have come to see entrepreneurism as a short cut to individual wealth.
