P2P - brands- modules (4)

Why also non Digital Brands will eventually become Platforms

To which extent, componentization will lead to the transformation of the very same concept of the brand? Transforming into Platforms is the next calling for brands and market co-evolution will define the winners.

Policies for Shared Innovation and Local Development

For some time now I’ve been making assumptions about what policies and changes the public administration should adopt in order to promote local development and long-term innovation. Despite these reflections are inevitably linked to the Italian scene, I think they might be generally helpful. These practices are also already being tested in some contexts (both nationally and internationally wide) with relevant results.

The Revolution at Hand

The Revolution at hand— The fundamental moment in which design becomes a political tool has arrived. Whatever we choose to call it — P2P culture, peer production movement, open-P2P-design — will we be able to find new meaning cooperatively? Will we be able to participate with conviction in the revolution that is at hand?

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.

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.
