Interests: open innovation; impact of IT and IS over firm’s final performance; relational coordination
The progressive application of Internet Systems and Networks can be analyzed in terms of co-creation of value and socioeconomic and collaborative impact. These technologies have been interiorized at firms and by citizens, by redesigning processes, and ways of interacting. This way they constitute key sources for innovation and have become elements that may increase the quality of life and promote the social and economic sustainability in our society.
Due to the increasing interests of firms in applying technological possibilities to promote more innovative business models, this Special Issue intends to collect the current developments and future directions of Future Intelligent Systems and Networks. Hence, we encourage authors to submit original papers related to these fields.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Databases and big data reuse of information
- Innovative organizational models
- The Internet of things
- Open innovation practices
- Social implications of collaborative networks
- Mobile computing innovative models
- Smart cities
- Co-creation of value with Intelligent Systems and Networks
- Environmental and social sustainable applications

Title: Socialism and Blockchain Technology
Authors: Steve Huckle *
Abstract: Blockchain technology, in the form of Bitcoin, is often cited as a Libertarian ideal. However, there are properties of blockchains that make them ideally suited to a Socialist paradigm. Current literature supports the Libertarian viewpoint by focusing on the ability of blockchains to bypass central authority and provide anonymity; rarely, if at all, is there an examination of their capacity for transparency in support of a Socialist model. This paper conducts a literature review of blockchain technology and Libertarianism. It then explores Socialist models of public ownership and looks at the unique cooperative properties of blockchains that make the technology ideal for supporting the Socialist State. In summary, this paper argues that blockchain technologies are ideally suited to enhancing Socialist forms of government.
