Video of the Day: Clay Shirky on the New Digitally Social Urbanism

Video of the Day: Clay Shirky on the New Digitally Social Urbanism | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“Clay Shirky on social spaces and the changing urban environment: The old stores gone out of business are not going to be replaced by new ones.Rather, the space occupied by the building structures are going to be claimed by new groups of persons having new uses in mind. Whereas it took New Yorkers a generation to learn what was going on with lofts, the learning curve on these new social spaces will hopefully be less long.”

Facebook bans Gandhi quote as part of revisionist history purge

Facebook bans Gandhi quote as part of revisionist history purge | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

That Facebook would choose to disable our account after we posted a Gandhi quote is incredibly shocking. The historical rise of oppressed Indian people against tyrannical British rule is apparently no longer allowed to be discussed on Facebook. The very IDEA of a free people overcoming tyrannical government rule now "violates community guidelines." The removal of this content is akin to online book burning and the destruction of history.

Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education

Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I have re-framed information overload from being discussed as a cautionary consequence of the technology age to us living in a time of information abundance.  I think we are living in one of the most exciting times in the history of humankind. We are living in a world of information abundance, surplus, and access.  The result is synergy whereby the human mind plus our current technologies far exceed the sum of these individual parts.  By this I mean we have technologies to access any type of information and to create products that match the pictures and voices in our minds; and we can use technology to get the assistance and feedback from folks around the globe.

An assessment of the emerging global sharing movement

An assessment of the emerging global sharing movement | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“As I spoke with sharing advocates and evangelists from Spain, Finland, the UK, France, New York, San Francisco and more, a picture started forming that these groups, while all working toward the same vision of a shareable life, are all very different. Share Tompkins in Ithaca, New York, among other things, connects people with the local resources while Collaborative Consumption travels the world talking to sharing advocates, government officials and venture capitalists; Sharetribe connects people in Finland with shareable goods and services of all kinds while the Post-Growth Institute lays the groundwork for an equitable economic model; Sharers of San Francisco, Collaborative Chats, Shared Squared and others bring people together to learn about and support the sharing economy while the P2P Foundation provides a vast online database of resources, article, graphics, podcasts and more. And the list goes on.

Smart machines and long-term misery

Smart machines and long-term misery | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This decline in labor’s overall share may also reflect accelerating growth in machine brainpower. Machines, after all, are a form of capital, and the higher income they earn based on better machine brains may show up as a return to capital, not labor income.

Innovator's Patent Agreemen

"One of the great things about Twitter is working with so many talented folks who dream up and build incredible products day in and day out. Like many companies, we apply for patents on a bunch of these inventions. However, we also think a lot about how those patents may be used in the future; we sometimes worry that they may be used to impede the innovation of others. For that reason, we are publishing a draft of the Innovator’s Patent Agreement, which we informally call the “IPA”.

Commons as a New Paradigm for Governance, Economics and Policy - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"It is a great honor to be able to share my thoughts about the commons with you this evening. I want to thank the American Academy in Berlin for the gift of time and caring attention that I’ve had these past five weeks – and for recognizing the great value of the commons paradigm in its embryonic form. I’d also like to thank the Bosch Foundation for its generous support of my fellowship. And of course, my deep appreciation to my dear friend Silke Helfrich for her wonderful introduction and for her collegiality in exploring the mysteries of the commons.

This is Your Wakeup Call on Employee Privacy

This is Your Wakeup Call on Employee Privacy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

With social networking and other electronic communications making employees' actions and attitudes more visible than ever to employers, it's clear that a big change in the relationship between work and private life is well underway. Yet little research has been undertaken to understand organizations' use of that information, or how the potential for increased monitoring and surveillance is perceived by workers. My colleagues Dr Brian Cooper from Monash University and Dr Rob Hecker from the University of Tasmania and I have just conducted a survey to understand workers' awareness of employer policies and the current state of what they consider to be fair and reasonable. We polled a random sample of 500 working people in our own country, Australia.

2012 Trends: Tech Year in Review - Tech Cocktail

2012 Trends: Tech Year in Review - Tech Cocktail | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The sharing economy is helping us cut down on clutter, as people choose to share rather than own things. We can get rooms to rent on Airbnb, one of the earliest “collaborative consumption” sites, which booked 5 million nights in the first half of 2012. We can reserve cars on Zipcar, Car2Go, andGetaround, which spent 2012 expanding their reach into new cities. And yerdle launched on Black Friday to encourage us to share things with our friends, rather than buy, buy, buy. In fact, the sharing movement has started to organize, with advocates like OuiShare and The People Who Share declaring November 14, 2012, to be Global Sharing Day.
