The Real Revolution Is Openness, Clay Shirky Tells Tech Leaders - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Denver — Clay Shirky is one of the country’s most prominent Internet thinkers—“a spiritual guide to the wired set,” as The Chronicle Review put it in a 2010 profile of him. In his latest book, Cognitive Surplus, the New York University professor argues that a flowering of creative production will arise as the Internet turns people “from consumers to collaborators.”

From collaboration to mass collaboration…

From collaboration to mass collaboration… | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Collaborating, isn’t that what everybody does on a daily basis, in any organization with all means at their disposal (mail, telephone, meetings, business travel…)? So why would an organization want to launch internal collaboration through social technologies? Isn’t that all too complicated and too risky, too complex and too expensive?

The Long View | Chris Anderson Says the ‘Maker’ Movement is the Next Industrial Revolution | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Basically, the Maker movement is what happens when the Web meets the real world. It’s the combination of the Web’s innovation model with a new generation of computer-controlled desktop manufacturing tools that have a democratising impact, much like the PC and the Internet did a generation ago.

EDITORIAL : THINKING ABOUT ART AT A TIME LIKE THIS : Exit Strata

EDITORIAL : THINKING ABOUT ART AT A TIME LIKE THIS : Exit Strata | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Despite the fact that I cannot think of a single person whose life has remained untouched by art — who has not been comforted, lifted, inspired, or empowered by music, poetry, dance, literature, theatre, or painting — in times of crisis I find myself in conversation with those who make an about face regarding creativity’s place on the life-essentials totem pole.

MADE TO BE WASTED: The unsustainability of the current system of ... | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Let’s talk about shopping. We buy a lot of stuff: food, clothes, shoes, stationery, electronics, furniture, presents, greeting cards, decorations for every different holiday. How much of the things we buy or gift actually get used to their full potential before being thrown away? It’s easy to throw most things away nowadays because it’s easy to replace them. And it’s just as easy to get trapped in this buy-store-dispose cycle in our consumerist society.

Book - Geert Lovink - Networks Without a Cause: A Critique of Social Media | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
With the vast majority of Facebook users caught in a frenzy of ‘friending’, ‘liking’ and ‘commenting’, at what point do we pause to grasp the consequences of our info-saturated lives? What compels us to engage so diligently with social networking systems? Networks Without a Cause examines our collective obsession with identity and self-management coupled with the fragmentation and information overload endemic to contemporary online culture.

Political expression on social networks rarely leads to productive discussion - UW Badger Herald

Political expression on social networks rarely leads to productive discussion - UW Badger Herald | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Presumably, I’m not the only Facebook user whose thread was inundated in political expression two nights ago as election results were pouring in from across the country and political science experts were scrambling to call the race. It was as if the entire social network imploded upon itself in a frenzy of celebration and despair. Logging on the other night wasn’t a complete waste of time — now I know I still vehemently disagree with the political opinions of a guy who sat behind me in high school math class.

Shareable: Occupy Sandy Brings Relief to NYC | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

While many in New York City are back to work and some kind of normalcy after the storm, the devestation wrought by Sandy continues in many parts of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. 21,000 are stuck in NYCHA public housing projects with no power, no water, no heat and no resources. The destruction in Staten Island and the Rockaways has been overwhelming. And people in these neighborhoods are reporting that the Red Cross, the city, and FEMA have been very slow to respond.

In a world that is shaken by a systemic crisis, new value models emerge. In this world, the mainstream currency doesn’t work anymore: it has embedded interest, it’s hyper-controlled, it’s scarce. Day after day, we realize we need a new currency: one that is no more than a language.
