Ouishare Drink Damascus #1

Sharing and cooperating are not something new in a country like Syria, throughout history neighbors here exchange and shareflyer products, foods, times, and many other things between each other. And nearly 60 years ago people within the neighborhood used to crowdfund landshare in order to share the crops and the financial returns of it between each other, but this participation has been stalled as a result of the construction and development of the civilian life inside Syria.

In the modern age, there are different forms of collaborating within small circles of friends and family, and few online groups startups that work on swapping and sell used products has emerged. It’s still early for the Arab countries in general and Syria, in particular, to see a large companies working is a major parts of the collaborative economy like caresharing, we need more extensive studies in this regard to determine the strengths, weakness and what work best for us dependent on the culture(I’m working on study about The Rise of Collcons in Arab countries which will be released soon) also we need to spread these ideas and concepts to attract more people to the movement.

Hashtag And the Third Level of Communication

What’s a Hashtag?

A hashtag is a pound sign (#), but it’s also used to categorize messages, keywords, and topics. A hashtag provides a means of grouping; since one can search for the hashtag and get the set of messages that it connotes.

These hashtags allow you to assign a topic or a trend to your post that others – who are talking about the same problem – can quickly find and respond. You can easily have access to activities and updates from people and organizations that you are interested in. Most social networking sites are in real-time so you can make sure that everything is up-to-date.

The hashtag phenomenon has been critical especially considering how these tags can be used to organize content and debates between larger groups of people. Moreover; it allows people to hold an open conversational session about a particular topic. Hashtags are distinguished for their click-to-go feature in the sense that they redirect you to a new page that displays all the tags related to that specific topic with a click.

Manage Implementation Of Open Innovation Strategy

There has been an active development of ‘open innovation’ practices, conducted independently by large corporations, or using third-party platforms and mediators. There is a kind of hierarchy of increased density of participation going from open innovation under the control of corporate plays, to more active user input processes for which the concepts of Co-Creation and Co-Design have been used in the literature.

Open Innovation refers to business processes where innovation is no longer dominated by internal mechanisms in the firm, but through the cooperation, participation and sourcing of both domestic and external inputs. This concept is used essentially for processes where the firm is still in control and at the center of the value chain. It is associated with related terms such as co-design, co- creation, and sourcing the crowd, i.e. crowdsourcing.

The quadrant developed by Steve Bosserman gives particular insight into the competitive dynamics that result from the drastic reduction in the cost of information reproduction and distribution, and why the maintenance of classic proprietary approaches is problematic in the long run.

Illustration: The relational grammar of internet communication and cooperation, P2P foundation.

Web 3.0 could be defined as a phrase coined by John Markoff of the New York Times in 2006, refers to a supposed third generation of Internet-based services that collectively comprise what might be called ‘the intelligent Web’ — such as those using semantic web, microformats, natural language search, data-mining, machine learning, recommendation agents, and artificial intelligence technologies — which emphasize machine-facilitated understanding of information in order to provide a more productive and intuitive user experience.

The Emergence of The Collaborative Economy. Part One

I. The Technological Revolution.

Let start with this! Around 1400 when the Print Press was invented it changed Europe upside down as it helped people to communicate with many groups of others without being at the same place. After a couple of hundred years, there were two new ways of communication has been invented the first one was the Telegraph the slow text base, and the second was the Telephone the device that transmits and receive a real talk, those two medias was a good in creating one-to-one conversation but not in create groups. Then around the 1850s a new revolution of recorded media – Photos, Recorded Sound, and Videos has been invented but this time those medias failed in creating conversations. Finally about 100 years ago two other media had come the Radio and the Television, which they gave us a one-way channel from one-to-many.
