Open Source Hardware and the Law | Public Knowledge

Open Source Hardware and the Law | Public Knowledge | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Hardware is different from software in many ways, but one of those ways is how it is, and isn't, protected by intellectual property.  As a general matter, copyright does not protect functional objects – objects that do things.  Copyright may protect decorative elements, or specific patterns on a circuit board, but by and large most OSHW projects and products (especially as you move away from embedded electronics) are things that do something, and thus not eligible for copyright protection.  As a result, it is all but inevitable that critical elements of an OSHW product are not protected by copyright.

MOOCs and Open Education: Implications for Higher Education « CETIS Publications

This report sets out to help decision makers in higher education institutions gain a better understanding of the phenomenon of Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) and trends towards greater openness in higher education and to think about the implications for their institutions. The phenomena of MOOCs are described, placing them in the wider context of open education, online learning and the changes that are currently taking place in higher education at a time of globalisation of education and constrained budgets. The report is written from a UK higher education perspective, but is largely informed by the developments in MOOCs from the USA and Canada. A literature review was undertaken focussing on the extensive reporting of MOOCs through blogs, press releases as well as openly available reports. This identified current debates about new course provision, the impact of changes in funding and the implications for greater openness in higher education. The theory of disruptive innovation is used to help form the questions of policy and strategy that higher education institutions need to address.

Key Theses on P2P Politics

Key Theses on P2P Politics | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

17. At present, the world of corporate production is benefiting from the positive externalities of widespread social innovation (innovation as an emerging property of the network itself, not as an internal characteristic of any entity), but there is no return mecachism, leading to the problem of precarity. Now that the productivity of the social is beyond doubt, we need solutions that allow the state and for-profit corporation to create return mechanisms, such as forms of income that are no longer directly related to the private production of wealth, but reward the social production of wealth.”

Why Japan needs Abenomics and Bitcoin faces a lost century - New Statesman - New Statesman | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The future's not so rosy for bitcoin. Even if its price stabilises, the long-term policy of deflation is not going to go away. The fact that Japan's "lost decade" lasted fifteen years may seem like a stretch, but bitcoin's could last a lifetime.

Maker scene ramping up toward “hardware innovation” - Wired (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

A new executive at Motorola Mobility, a division of Google, said that Google seeks to “googlify” hardware. By that he meant that devices would be inexpensive, if not free, and that the data created or accessed by them would be open. Motorola wants to build a truly hackable cellphone, one that makers might have ideas about what to do with it.

What do the 1920s have to do with apolitical money supply? As Varoufakis points out just in the next sentence, “the financial sector was boosting the money supply inexorably”, so there was no apolitical money supply in the 20s.

Umair Haque: Towards an ethical economy based on allocative and creative advantage

Umair Haque: Towards an ethical economy based on allocative and creative advantage | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Allocative. Google’s advantage was built on allocating attention to content and ads better than its rivals. Google’s real secret? Relevance, media’s measure of how efficiently attention is allocated. Match.com is building an allocative advantage in, well, matching people with partners. Allocative advantage asks: are we able to match people with what makes them durably, tangibly better off — and can we do it 10x or 100x better than our rivals?
