World Maker Faire 2012: John Robb,"Building Resilient Communities"

World Maker Faire 2012: John Robb,"Building Resilient Communities"...

 

John Robb, in this excellent talk at the recent Maker Faire puts into focus the proper counterweight to what we're doing here on line. Actually not so much a counterweight as a necessary complement... to get grounded in real life and make sure our personal situation and that of our community is set up to be resilient, to be able to withstand whatever difficulties may come our way as the current system falls apart...

It's a gloomy, rainy day outside and I'm stuck in front of a computer. That makes it the perfect day for thinking about the future of the global system and why resilient living isn't an option, it's a necessity.

EdgeRyders 'P2P' Un/Conference in Strasbourg, June 14th-17th 2012 - P2P Foundation

EdgeRyders 'P2P' Un/Conference in Strasbourg, June 14th-17th 2012 - P2P Foundation | Resilientcommunity | Scoop.it

Vinay Gupta writes:


The Council of Europe to _fund an unconference in Strasbourg_ with a dramatically P2P component. Basically, we're doing a social network analysis of the web site, and then inviting the maximum number of people who want to meet each-other - i.e. it's a fully P2P selection process, not in the simple "competitive voting" sense, but in the sense of "maximizing the number of desired meetings in a set of possible invitees" - it's *really* decentralized in basic attitude.


Vinay is also looking for potential attendees to the conference who are familiar with the p2p perspective, so as to invite them to Strasbourg

"It's about disrupting the market, creating a direct connection between the consumer and the producer," says Koutsolioutsos. "You have a real farmer, a real man, and a real, physical piece of land that you can – indeed you must, we insist on it – go and visit. It's an alternative way of organising food production and distribution."

Farm Hack | Resilientcommunity | Scoop.it

FarmHack is a community for those who embrace the long-standing farm traditions of tinkering, inventing, fabricating, tweaking, and improving things that break. We are farmers of all ages, but the project has special relevance to young and beginning farmers as a place to learn from their peers' and their elders' successes, mistakes and new ideas.

Crowd funding a low cost, do-it-yourself high resolution 3D printer kit

Crowd funding a low cost, do-it-yourself high resolution 3D printer kit | Resilientcommunity | Scoop.it

Having built an inexpensive, high resolution 3-D printer kit, these Singapore-based designers are determined to make their product accessible to everyone. They raised over $50,000 in only two days and are rapidly continuing to raise money!

 

Their technology is a leap over currently available 3D printing tech kits. Compare the two whistles in the picture - the top one is current tech...

 

They have spent some years on this already and predict to have a professional quality printer kit ready 3 months after the close of the funding campaign.

 

3D printing is one of the technologies that are indispensable for independent maker shops to be the distributed manufacturing points in a future p2p society. The essentials are local (organic, sacred) agriculture and local (computerized) manufacturing of just about anything we can buy today from the corporations.
