The Internet (and the Nature) of Things | Ubidots Team's Blog | the internet of things, open data and the city | Scoop.it
In the quest for a more optimistic analogy for the Internet of Things, I suggest we take a look at nature. Our living world has been around for millions of years, a good reason to trust its efficiency and sustainability mechanisms.

PARTICIPATORY SENSING 1/4 – the data-citizen driven city

PARTICIPATORY SENSING 1/4 – the data-citizen driven city | the internet of things, open data and the city | Scoop.it

Once there is a critical mass of participants, distributed citizen sensor networks will reveal new emerging patterns that will lead to a new collective intelligence. Citizens will soon become aware of the political power of data and they will begin to get organized in local work groups to develop new strategies to improve their neighbourhoods. The massive adoption of sensors will bring their price down, allowing anyone to participate in the extension of this smart city data layer, regardless of their income.....

Sopa and Pipa: don't let big business break the internet | the internet of things, open data and the city | Scoop.it

Sopa and Pipa would give US authorities the power to block sites accused of copyright infringement at the domain level – in other words to make them disappear from the internet by rendering them unfindable. (This is what happened briefly to WikiLeaks in the furore following Cablegate, and it's exactly what authoritarian regimes everywhere would like to do to sites that go on about democracy, human rights and other annoyances.)

TED Prize 2012: Crowdsourcing “City 2.0”

TED Prize 2012: Crowdsourcing “City 2.0” | the internet of things, open data and the city | Scoop.it

"Today, TED announced the winner of the 2012 TED Prize: the City 2.0. Breaking from their tradition of recognizing an individual global innovator, TED is embracing the concept of crowd-sourcing urbanism (an idea we obviously support at Open Source Cities). The organizers published this call-to-arms in seeking ideas on the City 2.0:

“The City 2.0 is the city of the future … a future in which more than 10 billion people on planet Earth must somehow live sustainably, together. The City 2.0 is not a sterile utopian dream, but a real-world upgrade tapping into humanity’s collective wisdom. The City 2.0 promotes innovation, education, culture and economic opportunity. The City 2.0 reduces the carbon footprint of its occupants and eases the environmental pressure on the world’s rural areas. The City 2.0 is a place of beauty, wonder, excitement, inclusion, diversity, life. The City 2.0 is the city that works.”"
