Sharing you can Believe in. For too long now I’ve been researching and advocating on behalf of systems of shared use.
This year, the ‘sharing economy’ has shown itself to be overwhelmingly an anti-regulatory, precariat-creating way of monetizing social interactions. The term has been so exploited by some of the most vile, greedy technolibertarians around that it is time for me to write off more than a decade’s work. (When I do, I will refer to it as my ‘failed research focus startup’ so that it actually bolsters my credentials.) But because my other primary area of research has recently been revealed to be indubitaly an anti-Semite (I had before now thought that Martin Heidegger was that rare beast, a non-anti-Semitic uber-Nazi), I feel the need to make a last pitch for what I think is and could be the significance of ‘sharing economies.’
Roma, i vigili incitano a denunciare via twitter gli automobilisti fuorilegge, scoppia la guerra contro gli "spioni" A Milano non serve più l’auto privata: Car2Go ed Eni (in arrivo) October 17th, 2013 · 2 Comments È passato un po’ di tempo, ma quella che Rifkin battezzò (nell’ormai lontano 2000) come “Era dell’Accesso” – o Sharing Economy per essere più contemporanei – sembra cominciare a produrre risultati concreti anche a Milano che, ad oggi, è una delle città con più car sharing in Europa.
E ben contenta di esserlo: dal lancio, in agosto, Car2Go ha già raggiunto la quota di oltre 50.000 iscritti. Se probabilmente oggi l’utilizzo è soprattutto da parte di chi già non ha un’auto, oppure ne ha solo una per nucleo, il successo che sta riscontrando Car2Go fa pensare che, in prospettiva, la città -non solo una nicchia- possa essere disponibile a dimenticare l’affezione per auto privata (i cui costi e fastidi aumentano costantemente) e a “convertirsi” all’accesso all’auto (a beneficio di vivibilità e sostenibilità, visto che per ogni auto condivisa 15 auto non servono più).

Most of the executives I meet with, regardless of their industry, now promote UX as key to their product strategy. That’s a big change from only five years ago, when UX wasn’t on anyone’s radar outside the tech world. For a designer like myself, it’s easy to recognize which executives know their products intimately, and which manage from a spreadsheet. Danielaselloni : At @CascinaCuccagna we are...

This is partly a natural evolution, partly provoked by the media, and partly driven by the government's open public services agenda: increase choice for citizens, release data, diversify the range of providers.
