Yes, we can prosper without growth [VIDEO] | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In our recent book “Degrowth. A vocabulary for a new era” we argue that economic growth is not only becoming more and more difficult in advanced economies, but that it is also socially and ecologically unsustainable. The global climate, the welfare state, or social bonds that have lasted for ages, are all sacrificed in the name of appeasing the god of growth .

The battle for your mind - Personal Liberty Digest | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It is far easier for the establishment to rule as long as they can keep the people thinking that they rule themselves. U.S. elections are a sham, and U.S. politicians are a disgrace. But as long as people can vote, they feel convinced that they can influence government.

Book of the Week: Radio Audiences and Participation in the age of Network Society (1) | P2P Foundation

Book of the Week: Radio Audiences and Participation in the age of Network Society (1) | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
“This book is divided into two macro-sections: Interactive Publics and Productive Publics. These two sections do not represent two different worlds of practices but, conversely, describe two different moments of the same process: audience participation mediated by radio. We conceive of audience participation in radio as a process that is articulated along a continuum, moving from interaction (with a low level of activity) to co-creation (Banks and Deuze 2009) and co-production (with a high level of participation). Here we will show and analyse different innovative practices of interaction and participation.

Wearables at CES 2015 – when will the Internet of Things catch up with science fiction? - The Networked Society Blog | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I made the trek to Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) every January for five years starting in 2009. In 2015, I didn’t go.

A bad Fracking gamble with our health

A bad Fracking gamble with our health | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The war over hydraulic fracturing (fracking), like most environmental issues, is more focused on propaganda than fact. Yet, unlike other fossil fuel debates, fracking is the first in which the health of everyday Amerians must be considered as a direct trade-off. Despite numerous industry assurances about its safety, the first retrospective reports on the health effects of fracking paint a grim picture for the future of Americans living near unconventional gas operations.
