The hazards of the API economy - CITEworld | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The modern world of technology platforms finds itself in a very similar dilemma. Look at Slack, the increasingly popular chat collaboration tool that's become Silicon Valley's latest darling: Its secret sauce lies in the fact that you can pull in data and work in functionality from a growing number of external sources, including Twitter, Twilio, Github, and (sigh) Yo.

Introducing Stellar | Stellar | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Stellar is a decentralized protocol for sending and receiving money in any pair of currencies. This means users can, for example, send a transaction from their Yen balance and have it arrive in Euros, Yen, or even bitcoin.

LittleBits, a Favorite Tool of Hardware Hackers, Is Now Cloud-Enabled - Wired

LittleBits, a Favorite Tool of Hardware Hackers, Is Now Cloud-Enabled - Wired | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The cloudBit, announced today, is a new component that’ll connect any littleBits creation to the internet, allowing it to be programmed through a simple web interface. There have been other kits like this before, powered by Raspberry Pi and Arduino—but while those remain powerful, flexible, and inter-operable, none of them possess littlBits’s plug-and-play simplicity. So with the addition of the cloudBit, littleBits could become a reasonable, DIY gateway to the Internet of Things.
