IFTF: Artifact from the Future: Sharing with Drones

IFTF: Artifact from the Future: Sharing with Drones | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

What if there was a database of every object in the world, and you could rent anything from anybody at any time? A full fledged Internet of Things, coupled with Zamazon’s drone delivery service is the perfect match. When you buy something online, Zamazon shows you the demand for this object in your local area, going rates for daily rental, and how much revenue you can expect to earn from sharing. Back in 2013 we started to see this with car sharing, but the cost of coordination was too high for smaller objects. These days, when you want to borrow a tool from your neighbor, with just the click of a button, a drone will deliver it directly to you. - See more at: http://www.iftf.org/future-now/article-detail/artifact-from-the-future-sharing-with-drones/#sthash.I3zhySXP.hS8RDmhS.dpuf

The P2P Revolution: Is sharing the new owning? - YouTube

Peer to Peer (P2P) initiatives are rapidly gaining in popularity. But to what extent are they a credible and desirable alternative to the current economy? According to philosopher Michel Bauwens the P2P economy is as disruptive as the fall of the Roman Empire. Carsharing (Dégage, Uber), fablabs (Timelab) and complementary currencies (Torekes) are discussed.

“State of the Soil”

“State of the Soil” | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I realize that in today’s fast world—fast food, fast money, fast information—a few weeks is a long time, a month an eternity, and who can even describe the immense duration of a fiscal quarter or a season. In today’s fast world, President Obama’s State of the Union is long gone. But in the spirit of all things slow, I’m going to go back all the way to the 1960s and 1970s, to a few Kennedys and things of a Presidential nature said back then. And then to the roots of the modern social investment movement, with a brief aside on Greek mythology and the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

The Emergence of Peerist Synergism

The Emergence of Peerist Synergism | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
There are any number of areas where emergence is occurring such as in nanotechnology, micromanufacturing (not to be confused with molecular manufacturing which is about 15 years away), economics, politics, and thus the term emergence takes on near metaphysical force, though I do not intend something on the order of the dialectical materialism which Bertrand Russell put to rest in his essay by the same name. Here I want to add that I think what is emerging in the current or near future time, whic

Many, many Facebook users still don't know that their news feeds are filtered by an algorithm | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

For heavy Facebook users, let alone social media gurus, the idea that Facebook’s news feed is filtered by an algorithm is very, very old news. But a majority of everyday Facebook users in a recent study had no idea that Facebook constructs their experience, pushing certain posts into their stream and leaving others out. And worse, many participants blamed themselves, not Facebook’s software, when friends or family disappeared from their news feeds.
