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.

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.

The Era of the Lean Corporation

A more accessible market, coupled with new reasons behind entrepreneurship and a new Hacker ethics in management could seriously succeed in transforming the corporate.

Only a company that embraces the waste not, and kai-zen (change for the better) and knows how to develop shared innovation contexts and participatory processes – rather than being monolithic – could assume a changemaking role.

The fourth era of innovation (or fifth perhaps), will be a matter of methods and contexts, efficiency and cooperation.

The corporate that will be thriving in this era will be different in shape and strategy, from the one of today which is too busy designing new complexities to start thinking about the future.

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.

Where I have been

Since few days I’m not as active as in recent times on this blog and here’s why.
Many have probably noticed that, lately, this blog had mostly focused its attention on economic and social issues, on design in the highest sense of the term.

My renewed attention to these kind of issues pushed me to go more in deep in meannig and, that’s probably the reason why, I dedicated the last couple of months to establish an Italian think tank, based in Rome, involved in open innovation and open culture.

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.
