1. As you know we are moving in the direction of an “Economy of Sharing” (NL: DeelEconomie”. This covers a very wide range and many forms of sharing. From @Ebay (NL: marktplaats) on Internet to Abe Pierre/Emaus second hand stores, but also sharing cars and temporary apartments (by @AirBnB) is getting popular. And do not forget that essentially Google Search and Facebook are ‘P2P commons’ where we share links, gossip and photo’s.

Holiday Fish Care: Helios Labs Creates 3D Printed Automated Feeder

Holiday Fish Care: Helios Labs Creates 3D Printed Automated Feeder | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The folks at Helios Labs must have been reading my mind all the way from Thailand, as I perused the holiday aisles searching for a big gift with some wow factor — a challenge that grows monumentally each year.

How complicated is this? And the biggie: who would take care of this fish if we went to visit with the grandparents for a few days?

Those events led to a wonderful sea change from the older—and rather depressing—scientific story of a non-living material universe accidentally giving rise to all within it, devoid of meaning or purpose.
