Creativity in the Smart City Is What Makes a City Really Smart

Creativity in the Smart City Is What Makes a City Really Smart | Time and Motion - Re-defining Working Life | Scoop.it
As we move into a new economy that values creativity and innovation, we need to reinvent our schools and our communities, where our young people spend more that half their time. Indeed, all of us need places that nurture our creative self.

Is it Crazy To Charge People To Send You Email?

Is it Crazy To Charge People To Send You Email? | Time and Motion - Re-defining Working Life | Scoop.it
How many e-mails do you have in your inbox? In general, each one represents a task—something to read, a query to answer, a meeting to schedule, a bill to pay, a request to fulfill or deny.

Luis Suarez's curator insight, May 12, 2013 8:53 AM

"All of these are useful approaches, but none alleviates the recipient’s burden: The system still lets other people add things to my to-do list" < This is essentially one of the many problems that email has got as a collaboration tool, for sure, but from that to say that you are going to charge those who send you emails is a mistake, and a big one.

 

Not a chance that it will happen within the corporate environment, because the individuals would not pay for the emails they send, but their companies will cover the costs, which will result in nothing happening. And I just can't see companies taking off that money from their employees monthly payslip when they are doing "their" work. 

 

Talking about using wrong incentives to provoke a different set of habits and behaviours. $$$ is never a good one in that matter. Never was, never will, imo. It's in the value of the interactions where you would need to invest the heavier, if you would want to make it succeed.

CERN Wants Artists and Architects Working Alongside Its Physicists

CERN Wants Artists and Architects Working Alongside Its Physicists | Time and Motion - Re-defining Working Life | Scoop.it
What do art and high-energy physics have in common? Quite a bit, if you think about it: Space, time, and the structure of the visible and invisible world, for starters. That's why CERN has spent the past four years inviting artists into its headquarters, and why, for the first time, it's now inviting an architect to stay.

Strange Visions of the Hyper-Congested Megacities of the Future | WIRED | Time and Motion - Re-defining Working Life | Scoop.it
Photographer Marcus Lyon’s images of crammed megacities and never ending highways might make you feel like going off the grid—at least for a little while. In his series BRICs, Exodus, and Timeout, he creates images that are large-scale visions of globalization and human activity worldwide. The photos aren’t actual shots of Moscow or Mumbai, but composites of hundreds of images to make you feel overwhelmed by the sheer power and size of it all.
