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.

Back from the Ouishare Fest: why Sharing is about Emancipation

A recap with the reflections generated by the Ouishare Fest, the most rewarding work experience in my life. Not for profit, Horizontal and Purpose Driven.

Mastering Collaborative Innovation through Events

Short time, well facilitated, cooperation efforts, often linked to specific live events (during which a community gathers around one ore more challenges, or a topics) can be an extraordinary experience and deliver outstanding results.

The adoption of well-tested methodologies summed up with a natural inclination of people to meet and share plus the huge amount of learning that this kind of events can trigger make so made contexts the ideal tool to generate multiplier effects and produce much more value than the necessary investments would recall.

That’s why in many contexts, ranging from social to corporate innovation, from product design to business modelling short-term cooperative events are gaining an important role.

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

Fueling Long Term G-Local Innovation

On Tuesday the 23rd of October, I had the honor and pleasure to speak on the subject of gLocality and innovation at the Udine’s DITEDI (District of Digital Technologies). During my speech, I first introduced the correlation between the digitization of the economy, democratization, cooperation and resilience (in a context of access to resources that will become increasingly problematic in the future) and then moved on to the topic of company transformation.

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.
