Website offers medical diagnosis using crowdsourcing - Columbus Dispatch | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

What Wikipedia has done for knowledge, a San Francisco company called CrowdMed is betting it can do for medicine. Send your symptoms and a nominal fee to CrowdMed.com, and dozens of medical professionals, students and average Joes will crowdsource — that is, share their knowledge and expertise — to help diagnose what’s wrong with you.

OpenStack Marketplace aims to end confusion around open-source cloud options - GigaOM

Anyone following the OpenStack ecosystem could be forgiven for being a bit dazed and confused – how many distributions are there? (Fifteen, I think.) How many public clouds? How many private? Even higher-ups at the OpenStack Foundation are hard pressed to answer these questions off the top of their heads.

Issue 29.1, February 2014 — Cultural Anthropology

Issue 29.1, February 2014 — Cultural Anthropology | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

With the February 2014 issue, Cultural Anthropologygoes fully open access. This means that the journal is now freely available to anyone anywhere who has access to the Internet (rather than just those who can afford the fees that allow them to get behind the paywall of a commercial press), thereby returning publishing to the commons, where academic life begins. We wish to thank all those who have expended so much time and labor in making the transition possible—former CA editors Kim and Mike Fortun, our talented and indefatigable former and present managing editors Ali Kenner and Tim Elfenbein, web consultant Ryan Schenk, former Society for Cultural Anthropology presidents Danilyn Rutherford and Brad Weiss, Oona Schmid at the American Anthropological Association, members of the OA advisory committee Jessica Cattelino, Chris Kelty, and Jason Jackson, and Paolo Mangiafico and Kevin Smith at the Duke University Libraries.

Tracing the constellation of actors in the peer econom

Tracing the constellation of actors in the peer econom | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Americans’ normative understanding of work is imploding. Throughout most of the twentieth century Americans equated landing a job to a lifetime of smooth sailing. In recent decades, faith in gainful employment has collapsed, and other models are emerging to fill the void. The peer economy is one such model.

What is an 'open platform'?

What is an 'open platform'? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The word ‘platform’ is starting to reach the same status as the word ‘internet’ – part of the bedrock, but many have no idea what it really is. In e-health particularly, ‘platform’ is often mixed up with ‘open source’, ‘APIs’ and ‘standards’ in ways that don’t always make sense. Regardless, public policy in the NHS, US ONC and in other countries is being formulated without necessarily a clear common understanding. I’m going to try to address some of the ambiguities here.

Worker Support Infrastructure in the Emerging Peer Economy - P2P Foundation

Worker Support Infrastructure in the Emerging Peer Economy - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"The peer economy is a framework of online, peer-to-peer marketplaces that enable people to monetize skills and assets they already have (see figure 4). To a provider, the peer economy is immediate relief. It provides an income stream while also freeing providers to choose when to work, what to do, and where to complete the work. Providers sidestep traditional constraints such as geography or rigid work schedules. Those who did not find inclusion in a traditional workplace—stay-at-home carers, the elderly, those varying in physical and mental ableness—suddenly have an empowering way to generate income.

Institute for Dynamic Economic Analysis

Economics is broken. Conventional economics has missed badly in its forecasts, provided an incoherent explanation of economic events and failed to produce effective policy. There is another way. An economics that incorporates debt and money. An economics that is proven by history and practice, statistics and theoretical consistency.
