My 2016 Life Experiment: Can I Thrive Living Exclusively on the Sharing Economy?

My 2016 Life Experiment: Can I Thrive Living Exclusively on the Sharing Economy? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In September last year, I spent a month seeing if I could survive in the sharing economy in London. It was hard. However, one of the reasons it was so hard was I was traveling. I only had a backpack and laptop with me, so I could not leverage the two profitable areas of the sharing economy -- stuff and space.

Cooperative transport systems – the next step in transport transformation - part 2 - The Networked Society Blog | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In my previous post I wrote about how connectivity is driving transformation in the transport business and how it’s now being built-in everything from cars and trucks to roads and parking spaces.

How to Create a Network of "Sharing Stops" for Expanded Transit Access

How to Create a Network of "Sharing Stops" for Expanded Transit Access | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Not everyone who needs transit lives within walking distance of a transit stop. Many, including the elderly, need a little help to get to the bus or train. And, as transit-oriented development drives up real estate prices in many areas, transit access is increasingly becoming an equity issue. Building a network of “Sharing Stops” to expand transit access can increase ridership while also increasing social capital in a neighborhood. Here’s how to get started.

The Top 11 Shareable Innovations in Chattanooga, Tennessee

The Top 11 Shareable Innovations in Chattanooga, Tennessee | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Tucked down into the southeast corner of Tennessee, Chattanooga is, perhaps, the most unassuming city in the Volunteer State. Though it doesn't have the musical legacies of Nashville or Memphis, or the University of Tennessee like Knoxville, what Chattanooga's 170,000 residents do share is the fastest Internet speeds in the United States. That's right: Chattanooga is the first Western Hemisphere city running a one-gigabit-per-second fiber Internet service. It's 200 times faster than the national average and has earned Chattanooga its nickname, Gig City, along with a seat at the grown-up table.

Greenheart Project: The World’s First Open Source, Solar-Powered Ship

Greenheart Project: The World’s First Open Source, Solar-Powered Ship | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Greenheart is a growing social enterprise with big ideas. Design is nearly complete on Greenheart’s first innovation: a new class of sustainable, low-cost, zero-emission sail/solar-powered ship designed to fill current weaknesses and gaps in the global shipping industry. The first new ship of its kind, the S/V Greenheart (“S/V” meaning “Sailing Vessel”), is being developed specifically for those communities marginalized by a lack of capital, that lack access to deep-water ports, and that are unable to cope with rising fuels costs. Our primary objective for this project is to develop a fleet of ships that will return the seas to what they once were for all coastal and island people: an opportunity for growth, connection, and advancement in our expanding global marketplace.
