Yoyogi park II (Mathias Sager, water mixable oil colour on canvas board, 53x46x0.4 cm (20.8″x18.1″x0.16″))

Beetles visiting nearby balcony
There I’m breathing, seeking harmony

Sing cicades’ and black crows’ voices
Drowned out by the crowds percussions

Dog runs, barbeque, photography
Calm and loud with friends and family

Nature culture, symbiosis to immerse in
Listen paint it, Yoga in the morning

Happy natural simplicity? Understand you
live with it.
Translate.

Believe it.
You must not fear, so dare.
Colorful enriched diversity? Trust you
deal with it.
Transpose.

Act on it.
You won’t stagnate, so share.
Growth enabled genuineness? Choose you
succeed with it.
Transform.

Be it.
You’ll never arrive, so live.
For all and everywhere? Here and now you
melt with it.
Transcend.

We need to claim ownership for our virtual identity data

Summary

Personal values such as care for society and an increased awareness regarding risks of the ongoing digitization and datafication of everyday life will be determining factors for citizen participation in the governance of smart home provision.

A multi-stakeholder cooperative approach could solve adoption-hindering constraints, such as lack of interoperability, in short-term in minimum on a local level.
