The new stars of social media - Boston Herald | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

New social networks are popping up all the time, each one promising to be the next Facebook or Twitter. And with Facebook reportedly losing ground among teens and tweens, there is certainly room for another “next big thing.”

Open Innovation or Co-creation and Coexistence of Business Models

Open Innovation or Co-creation and Coexistence of Business Models | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Collaborate is not a simple consequence of a statement. It takes courage! To collaborate requires a different attitude that is, go beyond case studies or exchanges of good practices. Business facing the demands of a constant torrent of change, cannot be satisfied in transferring a solution from one company to another, or adapting existing models. To collaborate inside the increasing complexity that companies are facing is a destination that people who embrace inter-disciplinarity and who are not afraid to be wrong, wish (that exemplify the startups).

The Continuing Struggle for Control of Cyberspace—And The Deterioration of Western Influence

The Continuing Struggle for Control of Cyberspace—And The Deterioration of Western Influence | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Who will run cyberspace?   It’s one of the most important questions in the world today.  Yet few outside a narrow group of policy wonks, lawyers, technologists, and international bureaucrats are paying attention to the question—much less the answer.

Open Collaboration - P2P Foundation

Open Collaboration - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"The principles of open collaboration for innovation (and production), once distinctive to open source software, are now found in many other ventures. Some of these ventures are Internet based: for example, Wikipedia and online communities. Others are off-line: they are found in medicine, science, and everyday life. Such ventures have been affecting traditional firms and may represent a new organizational form. Despite the impact of such ventures, their operating principles and performance are not well understood. Here we define open collaboration (OC), the underlying set of principles, and propose that it is a robust engine for innovation and production. First, we review multiple OC ventures and identify four defining principles. In all instances, participants create goods and services of economic value, they exchange and reuse each other’s work, they labor purposefully with just loose coordination, and they permit anyone to contribute and consume. These principles distinguish OC from other organizational forms, such as firms or cooperatives. Next, we turn to performance. To understand the performance of OC, we develop a computational model, combining innovation theory with recent evidence on human cooperation. We identify and investigate three elements that affect performance: the cooperativeness of participants, the diversity of their needs, and the degree to which the goods are rival (subtractable). Through computational experiments, we find that OC performs well even in seemingly harsh environments: when cooperators are a minority, free riders are present, diversity is lacking, or goods are rival. We conclude that OC is viable and likely to expand into new domains. The findings also inform the discussion on new organizational forms, collaborative and communal."

How Art Can Save Your Soul

How Art Can Save Your Soul | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“Art holds out the promise of inner wholeness,”British philosopher Alain de Botton wrote inArt as Therapy (public library), one of the best art books of 2013. He expounds the premise of the book in this fantastic “Sunday sermon” from The School of Life — the lecture series de Botton founded in 2008, premised on the idea that secular thought can learn a lot from the formats of religion, which went on toreimagine the self-help genre. De Botton argues that in the 19th century, culture replaced scripture as our culture’s object of worship, but we are no longer allowed to bring our fears and anxieties to this modern cathedral. “It is simply not acceptable to bring the aches and pains of our souls to the guardians of culture,” he laments. He goes on to explore how we can reclaim this core soul-soothing function of art from the grip of empty elitism and sterile snobbery, focusing on the the seven psychological functions of art.

The practising of an Art form can definitely soothe the Soul. It is an escape, which allows you to disappear into a different world, from which one comes back relaxed and with renewed vigour.

How Big Data Analytics on Twitter Can Help Predict Disease Spread [VIDEO] - Smart Data Collective

How Big Data Analytics on Twitter Can Help Predict Disease Spread [VIDEO] - Smart Data Collective | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Social networks have become so common in our lives that we post everything on Facebook, Google+ or Twitter. As such we also post how we feel and if we feel sick. Researchers at the University of Rochester  have now been able to use Twitter to predict how likely it is for a Twitter user to become sick. In the following video they show how they use Twitter to model how other factors — social status, exposure to pollution, interpersonal interaction and others — influence our health. The looked in total at 70 different factors and whether they had a positive, negative or neutral impact on the users’ health. They make predictions up to 8 days in advance what your health is going to be. With a 90% accuracy they are now able to predict if a Twitter user is going to be ill the next day and this information can help that user make decisions in their lives.

'Digital Money Will Save the World's Poor' and Other Delusions

'Digital Money Will Save the World's Poor' and Other Delusions | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Last November several people spoke at a Senate hearing to defend bitcoin. I alreadygot a little cranky about them, but looking back over their testimony, there’s another small thing that they all believe that is unsupported by real-world experience: Bitcoin will help people who don’t currently use a bank.

The use of 'present-technology' can help some of those in need to lead a better and safe life. For example, credit cards are being used, for this instance. Credit cards help them to keep their hard-earned money, even though they are notthat much, safey, rather than have those money lying around where they can get lost easily.

Show Me the Action, and I Will Show You the Commons - P2P Foundation

Show Me the Action, and I Will Show You the Commons - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"In this article I challenge the definition of commons based on the nature of goods, addressing the topic from the perspective of experience: how commons are created or emerge from a process that intimately associates people and the participatory and mindful ways in which they produce, manage or care for their shared resources or assets. I also outline how the essential principles of a commons logic which is not only found in what activists typically calls 'the comons', could help amplify the action of other sustainability and social change initiatives in a way that can be geared towards growing the commons as a whole.

Toward a Salutary Political-Economy - Freedom from Jobs

Toward a Salutary Political-Economy - Freedom from Jobs | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

While gains have certainly been made toward a more inclusive, egalitarian society over the half-century since Martin Luther King delivered his iconic I Have a Dream Speech (as part of the March for Jobs and Justice in Washington, D.C.), in many respects – particularly in economic matters – there has been little or no progress at all. Indeed, by certain measures equality has significantly diminished in the US. Accompanying a minimum wage that, when adjusted for inflation, is lower than it was in 1968, and wages that – except for the wealthy – haven’t risen in decades, the economy has polarized wealth to a greater degree than ever, reducing the economic classes more and more to two – rich and poor – and squeezing the middle and working classes into little more than a memory in the process. In among other places, this lack of change is observable in the fact that it’s five decades later and people are still talking about jobs – coveting jobs as though jobs were those necessities and luxuries that work is obtained to secure.
