Wikispeed the modular car

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.

How Small is BigData?

How deep the analysis of ourselves and our society should go thanks to the disintegration of technical limits on storage? How small are the pieces of the huge BigData pie?

Welcome to the Hyper Natural World – A talk with Massimo Scognamiglio, artist and visionary

In the Hyper natural world people develop new relationship with the objects and the objects themselves change and evolve, enabling people to communicate, live and exist with/from/to objects: in that sense objects need men and men need objects in a circular relationship between technical evolution and generation of new use cases.

As the Conceptual Age fades the Meaning Age rises

For years, we filled our brains and the mouths of the transaction between the information age – the era of computerization – and the conceptual age in the hope that this could save western economies from the ultimate nightmare of globalization of work and offshoring. We believed that thanks to our supposed greater ability to design great products, experiences and eventually statuses, we may have succeeded to the threat.

The news is that this is not happening.
