Unkind Architecture: Designing Against the Homeless

Unkind Architecture: Designing Against the Homeless | Digital Identity and Access Management | Scoop.it

"Defensive architecture is revealing on a number of levels, because it is not the product of accident or thoughtlessness, but a thought process. It is a sort of unkindness that is considered, designed, approved, funded and made real with the explicit motive to exclude and harass. It reveals how corporate hygiene has overridden human considerations…"

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 4, 3:30 PM

Five historical patterns active in the world today have left their mark on all aspects of the world’s economic and social fabric.


  1. Demographic and social change: the combination of greater life expectancy, declining birthrates in many parts of the world, and unprecedented rates of human migration, accompanied by a gradual increase in the status of women and greater ethnic and social diversity within most countries.
  2. Shifts in global economic power: in particular, the much-noted expansion of prosperity in emerging econo- mies at faster rates than in the industrialized world, leading to momentous changes in consumption patterns and a rebalancing of international relations.
  3. Rapid urbanization: the massive expansion of cit- ies around the world, through a combination of migra- tion and childbirth, with major implications for infra- structure, land use, traffic, employment, quality of life, and culture.
  4. Climate change and resource scarcity: the rapidly increasing demand for energy, food, and water, in a fi- nite world with limited natural resources and even more limited capacity for carbon dioxide and a wide variety of other effluents.
  5. Technological breakthroughs: the transforma- tion of business and everyday life through the develop- ment and use of new kinds of digitally enabled innova- tions in fields such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, fabrication (including 3D printing), cloud computing, and the Internet of Things.

How Design Fiction Imagines Future Technology

How Design Fiction Imagines Future Technology | Digital Identity and Access Management | Scoop.it

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 21, 7:10 AM

There are plenty of other examples of this effort to spur us to new thinking. In 2014, the Near Future Laboratory, a US-European design studio, published the TBD Catalog , an entire compendium of possible future products, from drone dog-walkers to environmentally sound seed-based feedstock for a 3D-printer. Other designers are committed to making actual objects or convincing mock-ups to think with. Either way, it is the detail that diverts. The 3D-printer cartridges, complete with model numbers and prices, look close enough to real adverts for things you’ve already bought to carry conviction. These finely textured depictions of the potential accoutrements of the future stimulate discussion in ways that earlier efforts to imagine technology often fail to do. They might even offer a more effective way to create futures we actually want.

Through case-studies of citizens in different countries, the film explores a range of factors that have led to the present crisis, economic and identity challenges across Europe. High-level experts analyse how and why things are going so wrong.

The film includes fictional scenes, set in a post-EU future, which feature archaeologist Charles Granda, played by Angus Deayton, travelling on a flight through a menacing storm, explaining to a child passenger what the EU was.

Sombre, thought-provoking and witty, the film frames Europe through the eyes of those who have most at stake: the Europeans themselves.

Free Technology for Teachers: A Handful of Ways to Publish Audio Recordings

Free Technology for Teachers: A Handful of Ways to Publish Audio Recordings | Digital Identity and Access Management | Scoop.it
Publishing your podcast through iTunes will probably give it the best opportunity to reach a large audience. People are familiar with the process of subscribing to podcasts through iTunes which will help you help them subscribe to your podcast. The drawback to using iTunes to publish your podcast is that the set-up process is confusing the first time you do it. WordPress can make the process a little easier. But if you're only publishing occasionally or only looking to share your audio recordings with a specific audience (let's say students, their parents, and perhaps another classroom or two) then you might be better served by using a simpler method of publishing your audio recordings.

After reading this article in the New York Times yesterday I started thinking about one of my favorite coloring apps for children.  No matter how old or young you are coloring requires a combination of skills that can be applied in various situations.  Combining coloring with augmented reality is an easy way to introduce this exciting technology to students.  The colAR Mix app (available for iOS and Android devices) is a super fun choice with plenty of free options.

Applying Resilience Thinking

Our planet is deeply marked and influenced by our presence. Scientists argue we have entered the Anthropocene, a geological epoch where there are now so many of us, using so many resources that we are disrupting the whole planet's nutrient and energy flows leaving almost all the planet's ecosystems with marks of our presence. The systems that are shaped by the interactions between people and ecosystems are the essence of what we call a social-ecological system.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 16, 3:49 PM


A resilience thinking approach investigates how these interacting systems of people and nature can best be managed in the face of disturbances, surprises and uncertainty. We define resilience as the capacity of a system, be it an individual, a forest, a city or an economy, to deal with change and continue to develop. But amid the enormous attention it has attracted, confusion exists. What does resilience actually means and how it should be applied?


When it comes to application, here are seven principles to help you along the way.


Read also two previous Scoops on the age of Anthropocene here: 




Matthew Farmer's curator insight, March 17, 3:05 AM

When leading in a globalised era, understanding the interaction of the different elements within a system becomes very important.

 

Socio-ecological systems and human impact upon them are important to understand becuase we have a responsibility to manage them and our actions and decisions as a population/species affect them. 

 

However, studying socio-economic systems as the Resilience Institute does, will also provide insight into how effective systems work and we can apply this learning to understand the other systems that we work within and perform better.

The economy toward which we’re hurtling — in which more and more is generated by fewer and fewer people who reap almost all the rewards, leaving the rest of us without enough purchasing power – can’t function.


Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, March 27, 3:23 AM

"...A future of almost unlimited production by a handful, for consumption by whoever can afford it, is a recipe for economic and social collapse.

Our underlying problem won’t be the number of jobs. It will be – it already is — the allocation of income and wealth.

What to do?

“Redistribution” has become a bad word.

But the economy toward which we’re hurtling — in which more and more is generated by fewer and fewer people who reap almost all the rewards, leaving the rest of us without enough purchasing power – can’t function..."

"This app was created to increase cyberbullying. There's no other reason."

So begins the current top review on iTunes for the controversial Burnbook app. The social networking service has made headlines across the country in recent weeks for bringing anonymous cyberbullying and threats of violence to American high schools.

The same reviewer goes on to say, "The app has become popular at my school and is specifically targeting a small group of people. I wish I could repeat the evil things that were posted so I could get my point across, but I cannot bring myself to spread those gruesome things even further."
