Forecast 2014: The Human Transformation Revolution - Gold Seek

Forecast 2014: The Human Transformation Revolution - Gold Seek | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The next twenty years will see more technological change than we have seen in the last hundred years put together. My Dad would hitch up the wagon to drive seven miles to town in the 1920s. In twenty years the way we get around today will look just as quaint, though in different ways. Who was using the internet twenty years ago? Only early adopters had cell phones. The Human Genome Project was seen as an expensive joke unlikely to be completed in less than a few decades. Twenty years ago, robots were still very limited in scope, and AI had lost its mojo in the public eye. Only a few years earlier a serious Stanford physics professor said Qualcomm’s technology violated the laws of physics and was a hoax.

The 6 Most Important Tech Bombshells Coming This year - TIME

The 6 Most Important Tech Bombshells Coming This year - TIME | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

4. In 2014, several young consumer tech companies are poised for explosive growth — and some will announce plans to go public. From taxi-hailing to ride-sharing to cloud-hosting and mobile payments, these new businesses are using the Internet and mobile devices to challenge entrenched industries. Upstart firms like Uber and Lyft are changing the way people travel in cities, disrupting incumbent taxi companies. Airbnb is challenging the hotel business model — and encountering pushback in some states. TaskRabbit has created a new online market for everyday tasks like mowing the lawn. Dropbox is making cloud storage and sharing accessible to the masses. Square is leading the booming mobile payments space.

Welcoming the sharing economy into your home

Welcoming the sharing economy into your home | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We have long since passed the age when we manufactured goods to meet our desires. We are now in a world hell bent on manufacturing desires to sustain the production of unnecessary goods. Ownership is a myth. We own nothing. What we do have is the right of storage, use and disposal. Nothing more. By cultivating an ownership illusion we support violence (or the threat of violence) for if someone were to use our supposed possession we can call in men and women with guns to get it back for us. Without this threat of violence, real or implied, ownership would not be possible. But why deluding ourselves. Let’s recognise the illusion and begin to appreciate the reality. We are all interconnected. Sharing is good. At a personal, societal and global level sharing is very, very good.

Ripe for rebellion?

Ripe for rebellion? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

From anti-austerity movements to middle-class revolts, in rich countries and in poor, social unrest has been on the rise around the world. The reasons for the protests vary. Some are direct responses to economic distress (in Greece and Spain, for example). Others are revolts against dictatorship (especially in the Middle East). A number also express the aspirations of new middle classes in fast-growing emerging markets (whether in Turkey or Brazil). But they share some underlying features.

What the Future Holds for Social Media - AllBusiness (blog)

What the Future Holds for Social Media - AllBusiness (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

2014 should see a greater amount of awareness campaigns regarding online etiquette. This is already in action courtesy of Lauren McCarthy and Kyle McDonald, who have created an app which uses Google’s Hangouts section to keep people from being annoying. Us+ monitors your Google video chat through linguistic analysis. If you’re griping too much it will drop text hints to be more optimistic. If Us+ gets entirely bored of your verbose rambling it will shut the microphone off. Such initiatives will likely be on the increase in 2014 and you should make sure your company isn’t irritating customers with online content. One standard complaint is overdoing posts — keep activities concise, striking, and limited to avoid driving people away.

We'll All Be Having a Hacking New Year - Huffington Post

We'll All Be Having a Hacking New Year - Huffington Post | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Even after two decades of successfully forecasting spot-on international trends for consumers and corporations, I didn't see coming what I refer to as the Year of the Everyday Trendspotter (aka 2013). It's so easy to do up-to-the-minute searches and publish in real time online that everybody from daddy bloggers to CEOs is broadcasting pronouncements about what's next in their area of expertise. Which might mean a change in my own "next," but for now, here's what I see coming for 2014.

Fred Wilson: The Three Trends That Will Transform our World - LinkedIn Today | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Paris – Mobile, big data... these are just technologies and when you're trying to imagine "the next 10 years", that's too small a lens to look through. The further back you step, the more you have to look at humans and their eternal needs rather than passing technologies, explained famed venture capitalist Fred Wilson in LeWeb's keynote. "We don't think about technologies, we think about trends, what's happening with society, with people," he said.
