Hacking Home: Coliving Reinvents the Commune for a Networked Age

Hacking Home: Coliving Reinvents the Commune for a Networked Age | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In 2006, Jessy Kate Schingler and four other young engineers landed jobs at NASA’s Ames Research Center. They suddenly needed a place to live in Silicon Valley, but rather than opt for cheap housing with a long commute, they pooled their resources and rented a palatial 5,000 square foot property in Cupertino. TheRainbow Mansion was born.

Answers to the Anguish of the Ages » The Fellowship of Intentioneers

Communitarian movements attract to themselves many if not most of the new and progressive ideas of the times, often developing them into aspects of culture which then influences change within the dominant culture.  Those ideas may arise in the dominant culture, or may be adapted from indigenous tribal cultures, or from foreign cultures, or from within the intentional community movement itself.  From where ever the ideas come, in community they are developed in the context of small-scale human society, with relevant or appropriate versions of the cultural innovations then disseminated to the dominant culture as they prove to be viable.  In this way intentional communities serve as “crucibles of culture,” or as Corinne McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson wrote in 1986 in their book, Builders of the Dawn: Community Lifestyles in a Changing World, as “research and development” societies, providing along with their criticisms of the dominant culture many constructive solutions to problems of the “outside world.” (McLaughlin and Davidson, p. 40)

ORConsulting's curator insight, October 22, 2014 4:49 AM

This is a fascinating RSA animate youtube clip. It asks some very broad questions about human nature, evolution, religion and psychology, and puts forward an interesting argument for empathy as being one of our core drives.


Empathy can be a difficult concept to grasp (and even more difficult for some to enact).Maybe, if it is indeed part of our core nature, and if collectively we are able to tap into this drive more effectively, it could paint a brighter future for us as a species, and especially for our biological and ecological community on Planet Earth.


We'd really recommend taking time out of your day, perhaps over a coffee, to watch and absorb this clip, and to think about your own experience of empathy for those around you.

Exploit Capitalism! To Build Gifting and Sharing Lifestyles » The Fellowship of Intentioneers

The monetary, debt-based system is an artificial resource, different from natural resources, with which the alternative, time-based economy turns the tables to exploit capitalism itself, in order to create a society with the values of gifting and sharing as opposed to taking and exchanging.
