Falling Fruit: Mapping Free Food Around the World

Falling Fruit: Mapping Free Food Around the World | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In 2008, while living in Boulder and working toward a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Colorado, I created the original Falling Fruit. Inspired by Urban Edibles, a foraging map for my hometown of Portland, Oregon, I sought to create a similar one for Boulder. I started by expanding a map created by Marco Lam and his students at Naropa University. More than pointing the way to free lunch, I hoped to remind Boulder's denizens that fruits and vegetables don't grow on grocery store shelves, they grow on plants – including those many neighborhood trees from which they fall, unused, to quietly stain our sidewalks.

RelayRides Challenges the Sharing Economy | OneLap - TechCrunch (blog)

RelayRides Challenges the Sharing Economy | OneLap - TechCrunch (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Sharing economy companies like RelayRides are a lot harder to build than they appear. They’re similar to peer-to-peer product marketplaces, but transactions are based on temporary usage rather than an exchange of physical ownership – which adds significant complexity. Scheduling, insurance, dispute resolution and pricing are some of the elements that need to be considered. For example, what happens if a renter doesn’t bring a car back in time, and the car is supposed to be available for someone else? How do you handle disputes if a car is damaged during a rental?

The Internet Of Someone Else’s Things

The Internet Of Someone Else’s Things | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The Internet Of Things is coming. Rejoice! …Mostly. It will open our collective eyes to petabytes of real-time data, which we will turn into new insights and efficiencies. It will doubtless save lives. Oh, yes: and it will subtly redefine ownership as we know it. You will no longer own many of the most expensive and sophisticated items you possess. You may think you own them. But you’ll be wrong.

The social productivity of anonymity | ephemera

The social productivity of anonymity | ephemera | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Anonymity is deeply tied to the European values of liberty, equality and fraternity. Concealing one’s identity can enable freedom (as in the anonymity of speech), support equality (e.g. in anonymous application procedures), and provide the basis for non-reciprocal relationships as expressed in the value of brotherhood (e.g. asking a stranger for directions). It is capable of traversing cultural differences and is essential for many contemporary forms of sharing, communality and collaboration (e.g. commons based peer production such as Wikipedia entries and open-source software). However, it is also contested and, indeed, under threat: networked databases, biometric identification and surveillance technologies such as CCTV are matched by discourses that condemn anonymity and celebrate transparency and openness. Legal, technological and moral imperatives towards transparency contribute to a process in which anonymity is increasingly under attack. As a consequence, the ‘end of anonymity’ has been declared in public discourses, not only since the revelations of Edward Snowden. However, this claim deserves to be scrutinised a bit further.
