Why It’s Critical for the Next Gen to Be Tech Creators Not Consumers

Why It’s Critical for the Next Gen to Be Tech Creators Not Consumers | The 21st Century | Scoop.it
According to Ayah Bdeir, technology is the language of our time. The 33-year-old founder and CEO of littleBits likes to compare the engineers of today to the clergy of the Middle Ages, who controlled access to knowledge and power via their monopoly over the use and understanding of the written word. Today’s engineers have a…

How 3-D printing will radically change the world

How 3-D printing will radically change the world | The 21st Century | Scoop.it
The rise of 3-D printing will make life as we know it today barely recognizable in 50 to 75 years. But it's not the Jetsons. Not yet.
more...
Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 30, 2014 3:16 AM

From the article: "3-D printing technology is advancing at a staggering rate. American designers are now working on 3-D printed cars, while in China andHolland, 3-D printers are building entire houses. The first 3-D printed hamburger was recently created in England, heralding the possibility of a man-made food supply."


But...


The hype over 3-D printing, say technology experts, ignores the potential problems it will create. One significant problem is the legality and ethical ramifications of widespread public use. Right now, additive manufacturing (the technical term for 3-D printing) is in its "Wild West" phase, meaning, the laws have not yet caught up with the technology.

 

An example of this is 3-D printed guns. Last year, blueprints for a 3-D-printable gun, The Liberator, were posted online and downloaded some 100,000 times before the State Department ordered them taken down.


So...it's going to be a while before you can use a 3D printer to print you some new followers on social media networks...but watch this space!

The second one is interesting. Does making data beautiful make it valid and reliable? It makes it beautiful. A task force just handed down a report on excellence in teaching in Alberta. There graphs are pretty, but 200 pages does not do legitimacy to such a complex subject.

Mobile Tribes!

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 20, 2014 8:05 AM

"The next big thing is getting smaller and smaller."

 

"The first generation of social media touted "networking", but the next generation, raised in always-on connectivity, will embrace ephemerality and digital tribalism. Those users will abandon the major social networks and migrate to more granular mobile villages with simpler ecosystems."

I think these two statements are pretty much spot-on, and will watch with interest as Facebook (and the 'others') tries to look small while continuing to gobble-up anyone and anything that looks like it might threaten its business model. We don't need one all-consuming platform, but that not how FB shareholders view the world.

 

Interesting times ahead!
