Why commercial p2p sharing companies like AirBnB and Uber need to be regulated

The Randian, simplistic free-market thoughtlessness behind the wave of “peer-to-peer” companies, and especially those who are trying to uproot regulations that protect consumers, is far from the wave of the future: it’s hucksterism masquerading as progress, hubris as vision, callous selfishness as community-mindedness, and it’s a disaster waiting to happen.

Richard Platt's curator insight, December 14, 2013 2:44 AM

We really like Galielo, it has Quark on it, and this is purpose built for the DIY crowd, we think this is very smart move on Intel's part, essentially creating an open innovation platform for all to use.  

 

And according to my sources the pet project of the CEO Brian Krzanich apparently with much resistance internally to go do it initially,.  

 

To us at the S+IG this is an easy to place bet, in fact plain smart, who else has one out there?  No one.  which demonstrates vision where others have not, and committment to go against the grain to do the right thing and to explore options and ask the larger community to go do it.  We commend Brian Krzanich for doing this, we see this as an excellent example of setting a new standard in the IoT space..  We are reminded of our days in desktop operations when Intel built the majority of the motherboards out there, and everyone bought from Intel, and I mean everyone.  

 

Who else is setting a new standard that people can get behind with technology that goes all the way to the silicon level and can integrate it into a killer platform?

10 Viral YouTube Videos for Social Change | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Many a video campaign has relied on a celebrity narrating a heartfelt story over footage of a heartbreaking scene. (Think Sally Struthers asking you to sponsor a child in Africa.) But precious few change agents can get that kind of star power behind their cause. And if today's top social change videos are any indication, that may have gone out of style anyway.
