The Dharma, the Interconnected Mind and the Future of the Enterprise

Corporations can no longer hold back. Can not help but speak the same language of the people, get to the same questions and face the same thorny issue: fix the economy through a new relationship with resources and consumption. The price of not doing so? The forced end of the market and human development as we knew it.

Today I am optimistic in thinking that, in the end, our interconnected mind will pull out the problems we have to solve as a society. We may not to lose the Dharma at the end of the day and understand that giving up the change is, quite simply, a non-option.

On the role of Resources in the “Third Industrial Revolution”

Back from Barcelona, from the Panel with Catarina Mota we hosted as Ouishare at the Fablab. Great discussion about materials, supply chain and more in general about why this “Third Industrial Revolution” is about a more conscious and honest use (and relation) with resources

Hacking Society (and Learning how to Fix it)

This post is about hacking our society for the better, it was a mixed inspirations that came from watching a recent lecture from Joe Stiglitz focusing on the shortage of long term sight in human, market driven, society and the urgency of learning.

Also, to inspire this writing, it’s been a sentiment that I feel growing more and more every day: the necessity to take a turn towards a more meaningful experience in life as a human being.

Why we need Open, Hackable Materials now – An Interview with Catarina Mota

Catarina Mota is, no doubt, amongst the most eminent representatives of the Hacking movement. To me, it’s extremely impressive though how one of the leaders of this revolution is coming right from outside the technological world and actually has a communication sciences and film college background. When I asked her to tell me a brief recap of her experience of hacking, she gave a really insightful and detailed story.

Commons Vs Competitive Advantage

The Future Proof Enterprise: how to create Resilient, Enduring and Meaningful Businesses

These days, we can’t pretend not to see how the mechanisms by which we produce and consume our wealth are, finally, showing some growing signs of change.
Society is starting to look for new ways to produce and exchange value, ways that are more open, efficient, less competitive, and inevitably based more on common visions and shared paradigms. This post looks into the risks of trusting competitive advantages in an age of change.

“Towards a Cooperative, Small scale, Local, P2P Production Future” – back from the OuiShare Summit in Paris

The lifestyles we are accustomed to, our own society, the very same trajectories that sociey has made available so far to us as western citizens (education-job search-competition-consumption) are obviously and soundly, falling apart along with the debt bubble that has held this system together for decades, hiding the quite obvious flawns in thinking of society as a collection of individuals competing rather than cooperating.

Interviewing Joe Justice from Team Wikispeed on the Future of Manufacturing (and Consumption)

Joe Justice is the ideator of Team Wikspeed: a team of volunteers distributed around the world who recently created a prototype car that is open source, modular and ultra-efficient in just three months, using processes borrowed from software development, the world from which Joe comes from. In addition to being a visionary, Joe is a fantastic and discussion prone person and this interview contains a very open and fruitful discussions I had with him at the end of April. I recommend you read it because it will be useful to you to understand how manufacturing – and consumption – are fated to change in coming years if, as Joe says, we want to continue living on this planet for a while.

How to make your Company and Products thrive in an Age of Cooperation

As a reader who regularly follows the blog knows, in my latest piece I introduced some new concepts about the theory of niches and, in particular, I focused on showing how communities finally won a productive and inspirative role into the new cooperative product cycle that is gradually establishing. This piece, instead, is mostly about how businesses can thrive by collaborating with communities: means, perspectives, “places” and phases.
