Collective intelligence vs connected intelligence | Open Thoughts 2014 | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Talking about peer production is talking about connectivity, in the way peers connect to work together for a common purpose. When asked about the main question of this blog, Derrick de Kerckhove refers to the “connected intelligence”, a term he coined with the idea of emphasising the power of the networks ― real or virtual ― in which every member of the connection matters. Check out his reflections in the short video below.

The Externalities of Climate Change

The Externalities of Climate Change | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Externality refers to what lies outside a given perimeter; in modern parlance, it often refers to a disconnected or unconsidered consequence, sometimes positive, sometimes not, of a particular action. For example, a factory is built in a municipality, enthusiastically welcomed by the residents, justified as stimulus for jobs, taxes, and a healthy community, which then, as a by-product of its manufacturing process, releases high quantities of mercury as waste into the nearby swamp or river which then descends through the towns below into the watershed and the ocean. That waste is toxic, and so it generates serious impacts along its downstream course, on the health of citizens below, on the continuum of terrestrial and riverine life, and ultimately on the marine food chain where it is ingested by fish, thereafter harvested and supplied to our table. All of that consequence, none of it monetized or factored into the cost of the factory or the price of its product, is called "externality."

Shirky: ‘We are indeed less willing to agree on what constitutes truth’ | Poynter.

Here’s what the “post-fact” literature has right: the Internet allows us to see what other people actually think. This has turned out to be a huge disappointment. When anyone can say anything they like, we can’t even pretend most of us agree on the truth of most assertions any more.
