ThePrimate® HPW and NNs Ecosystem Based on DDC+ Classification Oriented to Singularities' Peculiarities

Authors: Giuseppe Laquidara, Marika Mazzi Boém
Comments: 9 Pages.

ThePrimate® is an HPW [High Power Web] platform which allows dynamic classification of digital resources from european databases - including those coming from Europeana - the easy retrieval of data, reuse of items and methods based on enhanced tools, a deeper layer of attached information. The platform is strictly connected to Filamento®, an original IoT [Internet of Things] framework, determining a lattice of precisely identifiable talking objects in the real environment, related as digital items in a Network of networks (NNs). The structure of graph is founded on the keys of “affinity” and “proximity”, it is modifiable according to singular needs and reusable to many different issues. The circulation of resources among the users is reinforced by an original economic paradigm based on a virtual currency, determining self- sustaining.

Initial Study for an Urban Agriculture Installation, Modeled on the "Vertical Farm" Typology, Surrounded by Horizontal not Extensive Agricultural Lands

Authors: Giuseppe Laquidara, Marika Mazzi Boém
Comments: 9 Pages.

Tillage is an urban district plantation located inside the city for growing high-quality fruits and vegetables through the use of modern technology (hydroponics, aeroponic, aquaponic, using LED or infrared lamps). Tillage is not a traditional agricultural plantation placed on the outskirts of the city or in the countryside: in TillAge®, the process of cultivation takes place according to the model of the so-called "vertical farm", ie. takes place according to the model of the so-called "vertical farm", ie. using/building structures traditionally used for residential, commercial or business scopes. Depending on the case uses, TillAge® modules (TillA-Module®) can be placed on the roofs of buildings, such as shopping centers or supermarkets. A TillAge® plantation can be realized in ad hoc "buildings" (plant- scrapers), or through the recovery of abandoned buildings TillAge® is the concrete and responsible solution to a dangerously growing trend: the inability, in the short term, to supply of food and water the entire world population.

Aurosphere Number ZerØ, a Theoretical Semi-Serious Approach to a Socio-Political Constitution of a New "Community", Increased with Genetic Principles of Systematic Ethics

Authors: Giuseppe Laquidara, Jovenal J.
Comments: 6 Pages.

[DRAFT #Ø]. The present theoretical discussion for the establishment of a so called "New Community in a New Town” was architectural prototyped on the political writings published between 24~25 May and 13 June 20051. Among the others, bio-ethical principles are used. They transfer the typical elements of biological ecosystems, the exaptation phenomena, and biological-genetic evolutionary mechanisms and strategies, to the scope of new social networks and human organizations. In today’s review, the original expression of "Communism" has been replaced by the new word "Community”. Although the new "Community" concept yet includes the principle of fairness, this theoretical paper sets out only general rules and laws, without identifying practical requirements, to be dealt with in a separate document.

Æurosphere Ecological. How Science of Networks, Information Dynamics and Connectivism Could Help Politics to be More Inclusive, Transparent, Equitable for People, Incorporating Culture and Different Disciplines in the Progressive Stages of Decision Making

Authors: Giuseppe Laquidara, Marika Mazzi Boém, Jovenal J.
Comments: 29 Pages.

A partire dai nostri studi denominati “ThePrimate® - HPW and NNs Ecosystem based on DDC+ classi- fication oriented to singularities” [DOI.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.689881, (2012)], e “An approach to Filamento” [DOI.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.714984, (2012)], e da “Æurosphere number zerØ” [J. Jove- nal, DOI.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.722894, (2005, r.2013)], siamo pervenuti ad un progetto eseguibile per l’adempimento del modello originale della Æurosphere (2005), denominato Æurosphere Ecological, una struttura partecipativa complessa, altamente accessibile, inserita nel tessuto della società civile per raccoglierne le istanze sulla base dei criteri del cd. connectivism, praticabile in tempi rapidi e a costi contenuti, capace di ridurre il distacco tra le organizzazioni governative, politiche ed istituzionali ed i cittadini, ed in grado di aumentare esponenzialmente e in modo variabile/dinamico il reperimento di istanze cd. “marginali” o “invisibili”. Tali istanze [bisogni, necessità, proposte, petizioni, recall, etx.] vengono fatte emergere accrescendone il grado fattoriale di moltiplicazione e adesione da parte di una massa critica di individui e organizzazioni. Il sistema Æurosphere Ecological garantisce un elevato tasso creativo da parte dei membri di una cosiddetta e.democracy, attraverso l’invito alla creazione di modelli- soluzioni originali, immediatamente applicabili alle politiche e alle attività legislative dei governi e dei partiti politici, secondo processi di modeling e analisi quantitativa che rendono le proposte e le leggi che ne scaturiscono altamente leggibili, comprensibili, quantificabili anche in termini comparativi tra distret- ti geografici e geopolitici distanti, e su periodicità long-run.
