Hosting Self: Practice Informs the Practice

Hosting Self: Practice Informs the Practice | Spuren der Zukunft | Scoop.it
There are a number of practices I cultivate on a regular basis to draw from on those days I most need to host myself. In the midst of feeling challenged or feeling hooked, hosting myself usually starts with a noticing that I’m feeling “off” or hooked, acknowledging something is “rumbling” in me that I have not yet named and am not yet able to articulate with any clarity.

Good news from Germany: A 'global transformation of values has already begun'

Good news from Germany: A 'global transformation of values has already begun' | Spuren der Zukunft | Scoop.it

Good news from Germany: A ‘global transformation of values has already begun’. It’s proving tough to leverage changing attitudes into sustainable behaviour — but a transition to a more sustainable society ‘would be welcomed by a significant part of world society’.

In a 400-page report called World in Transition: A Social Contract for Sustainability, the German Advisory Council on Climate Change (WGBU), the heavyweight scientific body that advises the German Federal Government on ‘Earth System Megatrends’, reviewed a wide-range of values surveys. A significant majority of the German population, it found, views growth and capitalism with scepticism and ‘does not believe in the resilience of market-driven economic systems’.

This post-materialist thinking is not limited to the well­-off and educated. In South Korea, Mexico, Brazil, India, and China, the report also found, a significant majority supports ambitious climate protection measures, and ‘would welcome a new economic system’ to achieve that.

3D-Print Circuits With Innovative Conductive Plastic | Spuren der Zukunft | Scoop.it

For 3D printing to make its way into the mainstream, science needs to give us materials that can do more than just be hardened plastic. Researchers at the University of Warwick have just taken a huge step in the right direction with the introduction of a 3D-printable electrically conductive plastic. They’re calling it “carbomorph.”

From the roots of the word Economy as the 'Rules of the household' into a whole fluent explanation of how we should look at nature's cero waste economy to design or economic system. She says -We never really had a science of economics-

 

She ends with speaking about a gift currency of how money is issued to make the transaction happens but disappears afterwards. Highest evolution is a gifted currency.

Jules Pourchon's comment, February 13, 2014 12:48 PM
I do like this article because in my opinion this is exactly how I see creativity. The main thing that comes out from the video is the way to integrate creativity in people's everyday life, through the environment in which they are living. I like the idea of the term “disruptive realism” because it is for me the perfect way to catch people attention and to make them think about the message you want to deliver. We are living in a new era with new way to express and to create and what the video shows is the modernity of the creativity. Banksy in my opinion represents the perfect example of creativity thanks to his work that creates a real break between our original way of thinking, of perception and the new world we are living in. I’d like to think that these disruptions will lead us to many other experiences and different perception of our environment.

Céline Ferrenbach's comment, February 13, 2014 5:27 PM
This video found an echo inside me and I wish people would teach you this at school. Indeed, that’s exactly what I am thinking about when talking about creativity. When I see advertising, innovative design in the streets, in malls or wherever which focus on “being different, original and fun” I just tell myself: “they got it!” And that’s what any company would want to be. Thinking out of the box, being the difference that matters, and making people smile. <br>Just as Steve Jobs put it: “Think different”. But think different does not mean being an outcast who doesn’t like to be like the others. It means that you should never take anything for granted, not even what you think you know, most of all not what you think you know! Because to me, a good leader is also someone who has as a mantra Socrate’s quote : “I know one thing: that I know nothing”. This leader is curious, eager to learn everything and he knows learning can come from everywhere, everybody. By always putting yourself and what you know into question, you avoid to get stuck in one way of thinking, as often seen. People are often stuck in a vision of the world somebody, a culture, traditions, taught them. This is a perfect way to remind them that there are always different types of perspective. <br>Staying curious is the first step to be creative. And by experimenting new approaches, “disruptive realism”, innovative design and so on, you are offering people new filters of perception they would have never thought about.

In a 2010 study on the effects of failure and success on organizational learning, a team of researchers found that failure was a crucial ingredient for longer term success. Failure isn't the goal, however, when it happens we can either run from it or celebrate it.

Essay of the Day: Peer Producing Plenty in the Physical World

Essay of the Day: Peer Producing Plenty in the Physical World | Spuren der Zukunft | Scoop.it

“Peer production needs to grow beyond the immaterial into the material world, producing not just information, but also physical goods and services. But is that even possible?

The reproduction of physical things is possible if three conditions are met:

* you need access to the complete design,

* to the required resources and

* to the necessary means of production.

In the following section, Michel Bauwens trys to briefly outline how generalized peer production may become able to fulfill these conditions.”
