Several years ago, my friend and now collaborator Beth Noveck began developing a program that she called Peer-to-Patent, a software platform that allowed outside experts and informed amateurs to contribute to the prior art discovery phase of patent review, both through tracking down earlier inventions that might be relevant, and through explaining those inventions to the overwhelmed examiner in the patent office. (As late as 2009, the blacklog of unreviewed applications in the US Patent Office had reached 1.2 million.) Based on its success in reducing the backlog (now down to 600,000 applications) and expanding the range of discovery, the U.S. patent office last year launched a full-scale version, "Patent Exchange," that allows citizens to participate in every patent under review. Pilots of Peer-to-Patent have also been launched in the U.K., Japan and Australia. Noveck herself went on to oversee the Open Government Initiative in the first years of the Obama Administration.

Multitude Project: Open source hardware meets the p2p economy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We are at this moment in history when we can say with certainty that open source hardware(OSHW) is economically viable. The video below tells the success story of Adafruit Industries. Barely formed, this business model relying on OSHW might already be obsolete. A new model, the open value network, is already threatening to transform the landscape of the open source economy. This article explains why.

In many economies, new knowledge and technology creation and transfer towards local entities and new startups have been recognized as catalysts for industry renewal and tools for safeguarding (or even enhancing) a region’s employment and prosperity. This article presents a case study of iMinds, a network organization in Flanders, Belgium. The organization fosters interdisciplinary research in information and communication technologies (ICT) and strongly engages in transferring these new technologies towards local actors and in creating and supporting new startups. iMinds’ incubation and entrepreneurship programs act as catalysts for open innovation and company startup activities in the Flemish region.

How Television Can Help Manage Diabetes - Techzone360 | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Over the past 50 years the television has changed in height, sound and color, reducing in size from the large bodies to a slim, flat screen that can hang right on your wall. Not only does the television have to compete with the latest developments in HD and design, it also has to vie for attention with any new favorite mobile device – but that’s about to change with a new healthcare discovery that an iPhone can’t compete with.
