Atul Gawande: How Do Good Ideas Spread? : The New Yorker
"In our era of electronic communications, we’ve come to expect that important innovations will spread quickly. Plenty do: think of in-vitro fertilization, genomics, and communications technologies themselves. But there’s an equally long list of vital innovations that have failed to catch on. The puzzle is why."

Dear Technoutopianism » Cyborgology
"It’s been a while though, technoutopianism. I’m not a teenager anymore. I’ve changed, but in so many ways you haven’t—and I see you more clearly now. Fred Turner’s right about you, and so are Barbrook and Cameron: you’re selfish. You never really wanted what was best for me, or for any of the rest of us; you wanted deregulation and radical individualism, wanted us out of your way so you could take the whole world—the Whole Earth—for your playground. Hawai’i is for lovers, and your shiny silver future was only for a network of the already privileged and powerful. You got a taste of “the Long Boom”; we got “likes” and LOLcats."

Peer-to-Peer Hucksterism: An Open Letter to Tim Wu | Whimsley
"So, Tim. Back to the begin­ning. The Ran­dian, sim­plis­tic free-market thought­less­ness behind the wave of “peer-to-peer” com­pa­nies, and espe­cially those who are try­ing to uproot reg­u­la­tions that pro­tect con­sumers, is far from the wave of the future: it’s huck­ster­ism mas­querad­ing as progress, hubris as vision, cal­lous self­ish­ness as community-mindedness, and it’s a dis­as­ter wait­ing to hap­pen. I don’t think it’s some­thing you want to asso­ciate your­self with. Will you retract your sup­port for AirBnB and Uber?"

Why Share in Peer-to-Peer Networks : Deep Blue at the University of Michigan
We explore two possible explanations: private provision of public goods and generalized reciprocity. We investigate a particular form of private incentives to share content: redistributing traffic in the network to the advantage of the sharing peer.
