Bibi Moreno's curator insight, April 28, 2015 9:16 AM

Airbnb ones more has confirm that can belong to anywhere in the whole world. Cuba has opened their home to be a host for tourist and  offer to them an unforgettable vacations in local's home. As we may know Cuba is a  island Country in the caribbean, with its capital of La Havana, where most of the tourist take place. the Island has a internet restrictions so acces is limited but to find accommodation is not a big issue as there are plenty of options. Also at tho stage master card and american express are starting to launch their services in the Island and this will endeavour different businesses and facilitate tourism. This company is growing on a daily basis since people are choosing to have a better experience in their travels where they can enjoy their vacations knowing the culture of the destination. I strongly agree with this project and would be keen to try Airbnb in my next adventures.

Also the sharing economy is way to increase income in people, especially in this the part of the world where the government limit their income, I support the idea to have an extra cash in the pocket whiling the host are able and happy to give a good service to visitors.

All That Is Solid Melts: Comments on McKenzie Wark's Politics for the Anthropocene (Part 1 of 2)

All That Is Solid Melts: Comments on McKenzie Wark's Politics for the Anthropocene (Part 1 of 2) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Last month I made the trip from Louisville to Frankfort, Kentucky’s state capitol, to attend an annual rally protesting the destructive practice of mountaintop removal mining. A coal industry favorite, this process of extraction involves the rapid deforestation of the landscape, followed by the blasting apart of the surface layer rocks, defined as “overburden,” which is then most commonly moved into an adjacent valley. The coal removal can now take place, with excavator digging deep pits into the truncated mountain; when this particular mine is fully emptied out, it becomes the dumping site for the next overburden removal. It continues like this, large paths of ruined forest snaking through the Appalachian mountain country.

Cultivating Reform and Revolution

Cultivating Reform and Revolution | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Mountains and rivers, skyscrapers and dams – the world is filled with objects and structures that appear sturdy. Glancing upwards at a skyscraper, or mountain, a person may know that these obelisks will not remain eternally unchanged, but in the moment of the glance we maintain a certain casual confidence that they are not about to crumble suddenly. Yet skyscrapers collapse, mountains erode, rivers run dry or change course, and dams crack under the pressure of the waters they hold. Even equipped with this knowledge it is still tempting to view such structures as enduringly solid. Perhaps the residents of Lisbon, in November of 1755, had a similar faith in the sturdiness of the city they had built, a faith that was shattered in an earthquake – and aftershocks – that demonstrated all too terribly the fragility at the core of all physical things.

Computers and telecommunications have revolutionized and disrupted all aspects of human activity, and even behavior. The impacts are broad and profound, with important consequences for governments, businesses, non-profit activities, and individuals. Networks of interconnected computer systems are driving many disruptive changes in business practices, information flows, and financial flows. Foremost amongst those networks is the Internet, much of which is global, or at least trans-national.
