i [love] marketing. : Designing for sharing economy as the new creative frontier

i [love] marketing. : Designing for sharing economy as the new creative frontier | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The role of ad creatives may change quite a lot, and quite soon (and that's a good thing). With sharing economy churning out success stories like AirBnB, Uber, Rent My Ride, Barklay's Ring or Asos Marketplace, the creative challenge is going to revolve less around the needs and habits of individual consumer and more around creating something that facilitates creating new value out of existing resources in groups. The new creative tasks can be coming up with an infrastucture, motivation, and reward for sharing, collaborating or contributing. The interesting part? Designing for the social dynamics revolving around abundant supply, unmet demand and the possible links between the two.

"We have underestimated the impact of quality social networks," says Ciarán O'Leary, partner at Venture Capital firm Earlybird. "We used to kill each other because we didn't know what was going on elsewhere, so would buy into Russia or the US being portrayed as evil. But in a connected world with global friends, we're not going to war with people we see everyday within our social network. We're globally connected and can see what's going on."

Printing Solar Panels in the Backyard

Imagine what you might do if you could print your own solar panels. That's kind of the dream behind Shawn Frayne and Alex Hornstein's Solar Pocket Factory -- although they see it more as the "microbrewery" of panel production rather than a tool for everyone's garage. With over $70,000 of backing from a successful Kickstarter campaign, the inventors are now working on refining the prototype. If all goes well, by April they'll have a machine that can spit out a micro solar panel every few seconds. In the meantime, Frayne stopped by Flora Lichtman's backyard with a few pieces of the prototype to explain how the mini-factory will work.

Good news for the green economy

Good news for the green economy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It is time, I think we can all agree, for some good news. So thanks to theNetherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and its report todaysuggesting the global growth in carbon emissions faced a dramatic slowdown last year. Total emissions grew by 1.1 per cent, or 1.4 per cent when you account for the fact it was a leap year, less than half the 2.9 per cent average seen over the past decade. Maybe, just maybe, a peak in global emissions is still within our reach.

But I’m sure that you will learn something by watching this interview, especially if you have an interest in Economics :-)
