Savioke's Botlr is popular in Silicon Valley but is raising union ire elsewhere. However, Botlr is part of an increasing trend towards automation in business travel which alongside emerging cashless culture is putting the tipping industry at risk.

Hey Internet, where's my talking city? | CNN | Talking things | Scoop.it

Unfulfilled promises of super-wired smart cities have sparked a dubious backlash, say experts. Years ago, experts told the world that the Internet would radically change our cities. A lot of us are still waiting. How cool, they said. Cities will be able to use the language of data to virtually talk to us, sharing information so communities can become superefficient, saving untold billions of dollars. Traffic management would untangle our commutes. Carbon emissions would plummet. Life, they said, would get a little easier. Well, some of this stuff is actually happening in places around the world. But in many other cities, businesses and governments have been ... moving ... kind of ... slow. So. What's the hold up? Where's my talking city? ...

Can a $7 USB Stick Provide Billions With Computer Access? | Talking things | Scoop.it

The Keepod USB will allow old, discarded and potentially non-functional PCs to be revived, while allowing each user to have ownership of their own "personal computer" experience - with their chosen desktop layout, programs and data - at a fraction of the cost of providing a unique laptop, tablet or other machine to each person.

Collective Intelligence and practice-based Innovation: An idea evaluation method based on Collective Intelligence

Collective Intelligence and practice-based Innovation: An idea evaluation method based on Collective Intelligence | Talking things | Scoop.it

Users and customers are becoming increasingly important sources of knowledge due to changes ininnovation policies and paradigms. Simultaneously innovation is becoming more of a networking activity. New methods are needed for processing information and ideas coming from multiple sources more effectively.


For example, the whole personnel of an organisation are seen as a great potential for innovation. The recent development of communication technologies such as the Internet has increased interest towards the multidisciplinary field of collective intelligence. To investigate the possibilities of collective intelligence, the nest-site selection process of honey bees was used asmodel for an idea evaluation tool, a prototype of which was then tested in a case organisation.


The results were promising; the prototype was able to evaluate ideas effectively, and it was highly accepted in the organisation.

Learning by doing has always been a pattern to master a craft. This is particularly true for the  new-normal which cannot simply be taught as it is not there yet. 

What i mean is that the higher skill of entrepreneurship must be mastered in the same way: by doing, but with an OS that enables better results
