A light bulb that lasts a century - VERSUS -  the consumption economy.

Corporates made everyone believe that a consumption economy would create added value for us all. But, in reality, it destroys value. Cradle-to-cradle and closin

interesting story on open source and games
 
Go! Read! This! now! Cc +Michael Tiemann

"Before we open-sourced, we asked everyone why we might not want to open-source. Advisors were okay with it, but thought game developers might have reasons why we shouldn't. Game developers liked the idea, but were concerned it would scare investors. Investors were excited about it, but wondered what lawyers might think. Lawyers didn't see any problems and just told us to run it by our advisors. You can see the pattern here: there's no real reason to keep it closed, but everyone assumes there is. "

sharing ideas is essential to innovation
 
Research Suggests It's Better to Share Ideas at Work, Not Hoard Them
If you're worried that sharing ideas at the office will result in someone stealing them and taking credit, relax. A new study published in the Academy of Management Journal notes this actually happens less frequently than we think, and we may be shooting ourselves in the foot by hiding knowledge from our coworkers..

UK government moving to open source standard for documents. "There used to be an oligopoly" - governments who like more competition understand they have a tool in open source.
 
UK government set on ODF document standard

The UK government wants the Open Document Format (ODF) to be the standard for its editable electronic documents, Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude announced in a speech on Wednesday. "Technical standards for document formats may not set the pulse racing – it may not sound like the first shot in a revolution. But be in no doubt: the adoption of open standards in government threatens the power of lock-in to propriety vendors yet it will give departments the power to choose what is right for them and the citizens who use their services."
