The Sharing Econonomy « Annotary Blog

The Sharing Econonomy « Annotary Blog | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

You know that phenomenon where you hear about something for the first time ever, and then suddenly it’s everywhere? It happened just recently for me with Peers, a grassroots organization that supports the sharing economy through education and promotion of peer-to-peer sharing networks. First a friend sent me a petition, organized by Peers, to stand up for AirBnB’s right to conduct business in New York City. Then I came across a blog post on the website of branding agency BBMG which interviewed Peers founders about the sharing movement. The next day on the subway, I overheard three women talking about the Peers dinner they had just come from where they’d met to discuss the sharing economy movement. Suddenly Peers and the idea of this so-called “sharing economy” was everywhere! I decided to do some research.

The Virality of Evil - Slate Magazine | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The idea that electronic media would bring the world together is not particularly original—remember Marshall McLuhan’s “global village”?—but its proponents have always been hazy on the details. Are we to celebrate the fact that the “Gangnam Style,” a satire of South Korean hipster lifestyle, has garnered roughly 1.8 billion views on YouTube when most viewers probably never got the joke?

Wikinomics – Hothouse innovation redux: The world “upside down”

Wikinomics – Hothouse innovation redux: The world “upside down” | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Recently The Economist released a feature report on how innovation in emerging markets may be eclipsing innovation in North America. The report, The world turned upside down (click “Buy PDF” for a complimentary copy courtesy of BASF) reinforces the fact that globalization and disruptive innovation is no longer something that is “driven by the West and imposed on the rest.” The notion that we in the West are the harbingers of all things new and advanced and that “developing” markets are cheap sources of labor and less mature audiences for low-cost, dumbed-down versions of our products and services is false. In response to the question, “Why are countries that were until recently associated with cheap hands now becoming leaders in innovation?” The Economist answers, “The most obvious reason is that the local companies are dreaming bigger dreams.” Of course, the real answer is far more complex.
