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.

Hacking Society (and Learning how to Fix it)

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.

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.

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?

“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.
