Top 10 open source hardwares we productize at Seeed 2014

Top 10 open source hardwares we productize at Seeed 2014 | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The Crazyflie 2.0 is an open project, with source code and hardware design available and documented. The platform is designed with development in mind, implementing features to make development easier and faster, such as logging and real-time parameter setting and wireless firmware update. The complete development environment for most of the projects is available in the virtual machine, so you don’t need to install any toolchains to get into the development. But the virtual machine can just as well be used for flying. Aside from the firmware and software projects, there is also a number of community supported APIs written in Java, Ruby, C/C++, C# and Javascript.

Internet of Things and Microservices Intersect By @LMacVittie | @ThingsExpo [#IoT] | SYS-CON MEDIA

One of the neat things about microservices is the ability to segment functional actions into scalability domains. Login, browsing, and checkout are separate functional domains that can each be scaled according to demand. While one hopes that checkout is similarly in demand, it is unlikely to be as popular as browsing, after all, and the days of wasting expensive money on idle compute resources went out when the clouds descended.

The rise of the ‘peer-to-peer populists’ | Red Pepper | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Living conditions in southern Europe have become intolerable. In Spain a family is evicted every fifteen minutes for failing to meet mortgage payments – this in a country with enough empty properties to house all of Europe’s homeless. That’s just slightly longer than it will take to read this article.

From Corporate to Social Media: Critical Perspectives on Corporate Social Responsibility in Media and Communication Industries (Hardback) - Routledge

From Corporate to Social Media: Critical Perspectives on Corporate Social Responsibility in Media and Communication Industries (Hardback) - Routledge | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The corporate and the social are crucial themes of our times. In the first decade of the twenty-first century, both individual lives and society were shaped by capitalist crisis and the rise of social media. But what marks the distinctively social character of "social media"? And how does it relate to the wider social and economic context of contemporary capitalism? The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is based on the idea that a socially responsible capitalism is possible; this suggests that capitalist media corporations can not only enable social interaction and cooperation but also be socially responsible.

The Many Confusions Of The Internet Is Not The Answer, By Andrew Keen - Techdirt

The Many Confusions Of The Internet Is Not The Answer, By Andrew Keen - Techdirt | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The book's author -- Internet entrepreneur, talk show host, and social critic Andrew Keen – is a little dodgy on these details. What he gives us is a tour of the Internet Age's problems – the loss of jobs, privacy, and copyright residuals. The central question at which he seems to be driving is how to build a digital economy that does not result in ruined lives and radical disparities in wealth and power, but the precise question in Mr. Keen's book remains elusive.

It was a snow-removal truck which (ineffectively, I might add) rampaged through the streets gobbling up as much snow as it could with two hand-like shovel devices on either side of the front of the truck. The ideological message in that imagery, if overstated, was unmistakable.

Greek election results: increased uncertainty, excellent situation

Greek election results: increased uncertainty, excellent situation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"The first affect that comes into mind is relief. People who did not live in Greece, or even visit it occasionally, the past years, cannot imagine how unbearable the Samaras administration had become, from a political, but also an ethical and even an esthetic point of view. It is hard to explain the feeling of suffocation produced by this domination based on fear, hatred, self-underestimation, and almost all other negative passions, compensated on the imaginary level by an overdose of nationalistic self-glorification and vanity."

Greece’s new finance minister learned about tearing down capitalism from working at a video game company | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Yanis Varoufakis is widely expected to become Greece’s new finance minister after Syriza, an upstart left-wing party made up of marxists, greens, communists, and everything in between, won elections there. As you might expect, he’s no ordinary financier—his preparations for leading Greece out of austerity included a year as the chief economist for a bustling virtual economy.
