Internet Topology: Massive and Amazing Graphs - Smart Data Collective

Internet Topology: Massive and Amazing Graphs - Smart Data Collective | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I selected a few from this Google search. Which one is best? Re-usable in other contexts? What about videos showing growth over time, or more sophisticated graphs where link thickness represents "Internet highway" bandwidth or speed. And what about a video representing a simulated reflected DNS attack, rendering 10% of the Internet virtually dead, and showing how the attack spreads across the network?

When Money Dies: Germany And Fiat Money After 1910 - ValueWalk

When Money Dies: Germany And Fiat Money After 1910 - ValueWalk | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The story of the destruction of the German mark during the hyper-inflation of Weimar Germany from 1919 to its horrific peak in November 1923 is usually dismissed as a bizarre anomaly in the economic history of the twentieth century. But no episode better illustrates the dire consequences of unsound money or makes a more devastating, real-life case against fiat-currency: where there is no restraint, monetary death will follow.

You Are Not the Product: The Coming Revolution in Social Networks

You Are Not the Product: The Coming Revolution in Social Networks | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
This idea that we are just products for advertisers pops up in lots of online conversations, a reflection of the current state of our advertising-driven social networks. These networks were built on TV’s old business model of “I sell your eyeballs and give you interesting stuff to watch in exchange.” They’ve just modified that model a bit so that now, in addition to attention, we also surrender our personal data. Oh, and now we’re the ones supplying most of that “interesting stuff” to watch.

I'm a Luddite! | P2P Foundation

I'm a Luddite! | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
I’ve a long time felt that I’m different, actually from I was a child. I remember how I reacted with anger when the road outside our house was paved, I think I was about 7 years at that time. Today I hate the view of cars, power lines, the sound of fans and so on. My cell phone has buttons, probably they still make a few just for old people, but touch screens are against my nature. I use the old laptops after my brother. Just to mention some.

Geert | Conversation with Spanish social critic César Rendueles

Geert | Conversation with Spanish social critic César Rendueles | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Lately I have been preoccupied with the question of European answers to the techno-libertarian onslaught of Silicon Valley. Why are so many Europeans blind to the monopoly strategy of the new intermediates such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, but also Microsoft, and embrace their online services without any second thoughts? Where is our digital intelligentsia, the public intellectuals who grew up with the Internet? There is plenty of use, the stats for Europe look bright. And there is just as much concern about privacy: the stream of hacker and whistleblower scandals is not drying up. But for an informed view that goes beyond journalistic reportage we need something else. What is lacking are not the geeks or business journalists who comment on the latest apps and gadgets but informed philosophers, thinkers who not only have the technical expertise but also enough knowledge about the political economy of the net to display self-confidence in debates. Where is the conceptual supremacy, the passion and rage of a German Jonathan Franzen, a Swedish dana boyd, a Romanian Andrew Keen? How can we surpass the ressentiments a la Roland Reuss and come up with a more imaginative, subversive attack on Amazon? The European cultural elite is still in a stage of denial, hoping and praying that the digital storms will blow over so that we can return to the normality of the good old newspaper and the Tagesschau at eight.

Philosophical Disquisitions: Procedural Due Process and the Dangers of Predictive Analytics | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
I am really looking forward to Frank Pasquale’s new book The Black Box Society: The Secret Algorithms that Control Money and Information. The book looks to examine and critique the ways in which big data is being used to analyse, predict and control our behaviour. Unfortunately, it is not out until January 2015. In the meantime, I’m trying to distract myself with some of Pasquale’s previously published material.

Shared Machine Shops / The Journal of Peer Production | P2P Foundation

Shared Machine Shops / The Journal of Peer Production | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Despite the marketing clangour of the “maker movement”, shared machine shops are currently “fringe phenomena” since they play a minor role in the production of wealth, knowledge, political consensus and the social organisation of life. Interestingly, however, they also prominently share the core transformations experienced in contemporary capitalism. The convergence of work, labour and other aspects of life — the rapid development of algorithmically driven technical systems and their intensifying role in social organisation — the practical and legitimation crisis of institutions, echoed by renewed attempts at self-organisation.

This year has seen significant developments in internet governance, including the Brazilian government’s attempt to create a truly multistakeholder global process in the wake of the Snowden revelations, and the US government’s announcement of its intention to transition domain name functions to the global multistakeholder community. Andrew Puddephatt, executive director of Global Partners Digital, spoke at a seminar last week organised by the LSE Media Policy Project, the International Institute of Communications, and the Internet Society, on upcoming challenges in this area.

Chris Myers: Small Business, Startups and the Wisdom of Crowds - Wall Street Journal (blog)

Chris Myers: Small Business, Startups and the Wisdom of Crowds - Wall Street Journal (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

My fascination with the concept of crowdsourcing started back in 2004, as it did for many who read James Surowiecki’s brilliant book “The Wisdom of Crowds.” The idea that the collective wisdom of a large group could prove superior to the expertise of individuals is powerful. It has been proven out to a great degree by experiments both large and small. However, for the longest time I wondered about the commercial aspects of collective wisdom. There’s no doubt that crowdsourcing has plenty of technical applications, from prediction markets to market intelligence. While there is certainly immense value to be found in those applications, I was more interested in how it would impact the small business economy. Fortunately, in the years since I was first introduced to the concept, countless solutions have emerged that can help small businesses and startups leverage the crowd to solve problems they face on a daily basis and punch well above their weight in the market.

Geert | On Reclaiming the Internet with Distributed Architectures | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
This final conference of the French research project ADAM was put together several years ago but certainly hadn’t lost its relevance and foresight. The demand to defend and further develop distributed networks is still part of both libertarian and autonomous alternative discourses that claim to ‘defend the internet’. This event brought together a rich multidisciplinary range of scholars that do critical work in this field. I only made few notes of the first session. I was interested in the opening speech as I had not yet had the chance to hear Dominique Boullier talking.
