Nouha Belaid's curator insight, October 15, 4:52 PM
Pierre Levy said : " Mark Zuckerberg states that one of Facebook’s mission is to insure that the electoral process is fair and open in democratic countries. Google Earth and Google Street View are now used by several governments as their primary source for cadaster and other geographic or geospatial services. Twitter plays the role of an official global political, diplomatic and news service. Microsoft sells its digital infrastructure to public schools (...)

The digital revolution will foster new forms of government. We discuss political problems in a global public space taking advantage of the web and social media. The majority of humans live in interconnected cities and metropoles. Each urban node wants to be an accelerator of collective intelligence, a smart city.(...).

In the new public sphere, every netizen has the rights of an author, an editor, an artist, a curator, a critique, a messenger, a contractor and a gamer. The next platform weaves five functions together: curation, creation, communication, transaction and immersion" .
