GovLab Editorial Meeting Links, 7/17/13

1. All Eyes On The Sharing Economy
“Collaborative consumption: Technology makes it easier for people to rent items to each other. But as it grows, the ‘sharing economy’ is hitting roadblocks”

2.  Connecting the Dots, Missing the Story
“With Big Data, the government doesn’t need to know the ‘why’ behind anything.”

3. I’ve Seen the Worst Memes of My Generation Destroyed by Madness
“Cultural critic Evgeny Morozov has just written the essay equivalent of The Social Network.“The Meme Hustlers,” published yesterday in The Baffler, is a fictional-but-true account of a well-known Silicon Valley figure, O’Reilly Books publisher Tim O’Reilly. It’s also a story about the future that Silicon Valley pioneers want to build for the world, using corrupt memes that could wreck democracy.”
