This is the start of a collaborative model on the question whether the internet of things and the sharing economy will reshape the way we live, whether it will prevail, create or cost jobs, increase or decrease our living standards and whether it will have a positive effect on our environment.

A major factor will be our net happiness. According to KNOW-WHY-Thinking we need to feel integration and development. It is way easier to feel good by buying something new (developement) and than having something (integration) than by doing something actively and joining a community. If the new economy provides small individual gadgets that let us feel development and if the critical mass of us can integrate in communities the major industries have every reason to fear this future.
Innovation and research could come from the commons as well and so those industrial processes with sophisticated materials that today allow for special product features could in the future be replaced by intelligent designs with purer materials.
Feel free to add to the model !

Interessanter Aspekt. Es klingt nach einem eigenen, kleinen Modell. Es gibt meine ich bereits ein Baby-Modell auf KNOW-WHY.NET


Ein Auto darf ich ab 18 mit einem Führerschein im Strassenverkehr benutzen.
Ein Telephon, Mobilphone und somit "das Netz der Dinge" wir heute schon Kindern gegeben welche nicht lesen noch schreiben können. Der Einstieg sind Spiele. Durch das Handy erhalten Eltern Ruhe und können sich dem Altag zuwenden! Die ist die bedenklichste
