The personal computer is dying. Its place in our lives as the primary means of computing will soon end. Mobile computing—the cell phone in your pocket or the tablet in your purse—has been a great bridging technology, connecting the familiar past to a formative future. But mobile is not the destination. In many ways mobile devices belong more to the dying PC model than to the real future of computing.Instead, the future of computing is at a very large scale. I am not referring to the room-size monstrosities from computing’s dawn in the 1960s. I’m talking about a diffuse and invisible network embedded in our surroundings. Chips and sensors are f ...

Using Story to Solve Social Problems
Ssir fall 2013 cover small 170x221
How narrative intelligence can help everyone design solutions and generate useful data. Last week I was in a meeting with a dozen leaders of social agencies and enterprises, exploring options for a joint event in the coming year. Though the group was keen, we didn’t have a facilitator, and the conversation wandered. An hour later, we still hadn’t identified a goal for the event or even clarified why we wanted to do it. So I threw one of my favorite questions out to the table: “What would ‘happily ever after' look like to you if we made this happen?” The query drew several smiles—and brought the discussion into sharp focus.

Future of retail

Inspiration Think Lego for electronics. I recently stumbled upon this gem called littleBits that brings the classic building block to the world of electronics. Geared at all ages (from children to adults), it's an opensource library of electronic modules that snap together with magnets to inspire creativity and help users explore the world of electronics. What's really cool is that you can add the modules to almost anything to make almost anything: an interactive cat, a pizza box phonograph, a nightlight, you name it. How might we use tools li ...

(CNN) -- Urban transport in Bolivia's administrative capital of La Paz has always been about what goes up and down.Situated in a deep canyon more than 10,000 feet above sea level, the Andean metropolis is one of the highest cities in the world. Densely populated barrios (neighborhoods) occupy the hills encompassing the bustling city center, rising a further 1,400 feet towards the satellite town of El Alto.While these lofty locations create a dramatic setting -- particularly at night when the slopes are illuminated by thousands of house and street lights -- servicing them with reliable transit services has long proven difficult.Bus journeys tha ...
