Lessons of DIY Urbanism in a Syrian Refugee Camp | P2P Foundation

Lessons of DIY Urbanism in a Syrian Refugee Camp | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Governments are so accustomed to dictating their will, through coercion if necessary, that they find it unimaginable that people might willingly – and with creativity and enthusiasm – self-organize themselves to take care of urgent needs.  So pause a moment to behold the remarkable Zaatari Refugee camp in Jordan.  This settlement of 85,000 displaced Syrians is showing how even desperate, resource-poor people can show enormous creativity and self-organization, and turn their “camp” into a “city.”

The Tomato Harvester | Boom: A Journal of California

The Tomato Harvester | Boom: A Journal of California | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

If you’ve driven the highways and back roads of the Central and Sacramento Valleys in the summer, when the tomatoes are at their ripest, you may have seen them. And maybe like me, the first time you saw them you had to stop and watch for a while. It’s difficult not to be mesmerized by the strangeness of a tomato harvesting machine. “Factories in the field” is what some scholars have called them, and it’s easy to see why.

The future is now!

Ellen Van Daele's curator insight, May 26, 2015 6:54 PM

This article discusses predictions for a future fourth industrial revolution. The fourth industrial revolution consist of highly technical machinery that is personalized and communicates with each other. This had huge advantages with consumer needs, but also has disadvantages with the jobs that it would take away. 

 

In the last two centuries the industrialization process has boomed. With more are more industrialization, this fourth industrial revolution could be very possible.

The Common Good and the anti-utilitarian perspectiveBridges... | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

At the core of standard economic theory is the assumption of self- interest, of rational decision making. But this is not reality. People are more complex. From this false premise standard economics has unwittingly poured a foundation from which a cultural cult of “greed is good” has risen, which harms both the individual and society. It hampers bridge building to others, to society, and the common good. Bridge Building is only possible beyond utilitarian calculation.

Meta-Industrial Workers - P2P Foundation

Meta-Industrial Workers - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Most analyses of capitalism have tended to treat workers as waged white men, whereas reproductive labour is deemed to be supplementary – the province of the unwaged – women domestics and carers, peasant farmers, and indigenous hunter-gatherers. However, the latter meta-industrial groupings, nominally outside of the economic system, actually constitute the majority of workers in twenty-first century of global capitalism.

Using Nature to “3D Print” Wood Furniture the Old Fashioned Way

Using Nature to “3D Print” Wood Furniture the Old Fashioned Way | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

When you think 3D printed furniture I’d imagine most people picture plastic tables and chairs in garish colors, or fragile plastic parts glued together. But in actuality, there have been a lot of interesting advancements made in 3D printing home furnishings in the last few years, from large-scale 3D printers capable of producing entire pieces of furniture in a single piece, to filament made from real wood that can be sanded and stained just like the real thing. Wood filament even smells like wood when it is being used.
