Many ask how the idea for Rentcycle came to be. I’m not from the rental industry. I’ve never started an Internet company before. So, how is it that I got here? Although a combination of factors truly helped the stars align for Rentcycle, there’s one major influence that planted the seed for the idea—my first job out of college at Red Hat , the open source technology company.

For those who don’t know, Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of open source technology , namely the Linux operating system . Working on the Brand Communications team at Red Hat, I was tasked with telling this story of shared access to the masses. After three wonderful years evangelizing Red Hat’s mission and values, I moved cross-country to San Francisco. 1.

Red Hat always preaches, “Your mother was right. Collaborative Consumption (CC) takes a similar stance by promoting access to shared resources. 2. The open source movement is based on a community of contributors. Knowledge is not mine, not yours. Only the arrangement is ours. To be clear, we do think intellectual property is important, and we’re sure that relevant mind creations have to be recognized. But we’re talking about something different here. Think about 90% of the things you do in your day-to-day life. In most of them, you’re creating, contributing, or improving —the know-how gathered through experience. Think about self-directed learning and how you throw yourself into a quest for specific knowledge on the internet. You capture knowledge, add your takes, and form an opinion. One of the questions people ask us is why people would help Ledface if there’s no glory involved? Most of us don’t even notice how much cultural knowledge we have and how it is.

Ledface has a very specific goal: to enable people to tap into collective intelligence to solve their day-to-day problems. Maybe in the beginning, not everyone will be interested in an egoless knowledge environment, but we do believe that there is a of the cake that always wanted something like this. Ledface – Our Vision of Collective Intelligence. In this post we present our vision of collective intelligence. This isn’t the “right” or the “wrong” definition—it’s our point of view and how we’re using it on Ledface. We want you to get involved with our project, so we need you to understand what we’re working with. We prepared a different approach on this post, offering two levels of information. The “Tip of the Iceberg” is for readers who don’t have much time or who just want to quickly get the big picture. If you want more in-depth information, “The Iceberg” is for you.

Infographic: Building Success in a Connected World. Last weekend I was musing about the elements of success in a connected world.

Conferencia: Como vivir de la Web (Video)

(aquí mayor información) Lamentablemente, la calidad del video, debido a lo lejos que estaba la cámara, no ha sido óptima. Tengo entendido que la charla fue grabada también por la misma Asociación Peruano Japonesa, así que trataré de conseguir el video original. El audio, afortunadamente, está bastante bueno, ya que fue conectado a la consola de la charla. La experiencia fue bastante interesante, sobre todo por lo diferente que era el público. La de esta oportunidad, como era abierta para todo público, tenía que tener otro tono diferente: todo tenía que ser simplificado para: a) demostrar que es bastante sencillo, con las herramientas actuales, lanzar un website y b) motivar a las personas a que lo hagan.
