TOP 10 Technical Apps for Architects

TOP 10 Technical Apps for Architects | Hybrids | Scoop.it

Building upon our Top 10 Apps for Architects, this collection brings together some of the best quality and most valued technical apps for designing, sketching, calculating and collaborating. Although the majority of those featured here are designed solely for the iOS platform, every time we collate lists such as these it’s clear that more and more high quality apps for the Android and Windows platforms are being developed. From condensed versions of large scale software packages that architects and designers use every day, to blank canvases to scratch ideas down onto, you might just find an app that could improve the way you work.

Pierre Tran's curator insight, July 10, 1:17 AM

Les transhumanistes sont bien obligés de reconnaître les dangers d'un "totalitarisme cybernétique" que brandit Jaron Lanier.

luiy's curator insight, July 10, 5:30 AM

Here are the most important beliefs of cybernetic totalism:

 

1) That cybernetic patterns of information provide the ultimate and best way to understand reality.


2) That people are no more than cybernetic patterns.


3) That subjective experience either doesn’t exist, or is unimportant because it is some sort of ambient or peripheral effect.


4) That what Darwin described in biology, or something like it, is in fact also the singular, superior description of all creativity and culture.


5) That qualitative as well as quantitative aspects of information systems will be accelerated by Moore’s Law.

 

And finally, the most dramatic:

6) That biology and physics will merge with computer science (becoming biotechnology and nanotechnology), resulting in life and the physical universe becoming mercurial; achieving the supposed nature of computer software. Furthermore, all of this will happen very soon! Since computers are improving so quickly, they will overwhelm all the other cybernetic processes, like people, and will fundamentally change the nature of what’s going on in the familiar neighborhood of Earth at some moment when a new “criticality”is achieved- maybe in about the year 2020. To be a human after that moment will be either impossible or something very different than we now can know.

Via Desarts Sonnants
Bioplug's insight:

"Un casque audio sur les oreilles, on arpente les rues du quartier populaire et déshérité de Tenderloin à San Francisco, ignoré des guides touristiques. Nous y sommes guidés par la voix rocailleuse et chaleureuse de John Perry Barlow, l’un des penseurs et pionniers de la cyberculture. Le poète, essayiste et militant, grand défenseur de la liberté sur Internet, a en effet été invité par le collectif d’artistes Soundwalk, à nous présenter, sous la forme d’un parcours sonore, ses lieux favoris, cafés, galeries, librairies de livres anciens ou underground, sans oublier certaines des figures intellectuelles et militantes du quartier.

Porté par une musique électronique, plutôt ambient, composée par le Soundwalk Collective, ce parcours se veut une flânerie philosophique dans laquelle le sexagénaire s’interroge sur l’histoire et l’imaginaire de la Californie, sa tradition d’innovation, l’influence de la science-fiction, la question des libertés publiques (on y entend en écho la voix d’Edward Snowden) ainsi qu’une réflexion sur la fracture sociale grandissante qui semble diviser l’Amérique connectée et l’univers de ses homeless.

Can beauty help us to become better people? – John Armstrong – Aeon

Can beauty help us to become better people? – John Armstrong – Aeon | Hybrids | Scoop.it
True beauty pleases the eye and the mind – but can it help us to become better people?

-

Schiller thinks of human nature as an arena in which two powerful psychological drives are at work. On the one hand, there is the ‘sense’ drive which lives in the moment and seeks immediate gratification. It craves contact and possession. It can be coarse, as when one yearns to swig great draughts of beer; but it can also be elevated. Schiller associated the sense drive with his friend Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who longed to see things with his own eyes. Goethe was a direct observer, a natural empiricist who immersed himself in practical detail.

The second drive identified by Schiller was the ‘form’ drive: the inner demand for coherence over time, for abstract understanding and rational order. This drive, thought Schiller, seeks to leave behind the peculiarities of one’s own experience and discover universal principles. It is at the heart of justice – which is not about getting what you want for yourself – and is animated by principle. When we think that a person is entitled to a fair trial, we are motivated, Schiller says, by the rational ‘form’ drive. We are loyal to the abstract, general ideal of due process.

What he’s calling the sense drive and the form drive are powerful impulses in us. But they are often in conflict. The demands of the short term are at odds with the hopes of the longer view. Comfort and ease struggle against a sense of duty and responsibility. The allure of freedom clashes with the longing to be steadfast and rooted in existing commitments.
