Work Is Dead, Long Live Life

Innovation and disruption are words attached most of the time to a product or a process. It is interesting we do not spend much time focussing on the origination point of a new idea: us, the human being. Without passion and engagement, even with the best technological and scientific progress, I am convinced nothing can ever happen. Actually, we would not even be able to invent. This is the core of life-changing creations and innovative companies: the involvement and energy we are ready to put into it. It is hard to stay committed to a project if you do not grow in it, if you do not learn.

Passion is a key ingredient, but not the only one. We have to evolve in what we do. That is where we go beyond the limits and truly create, not only fall into a subway-work-sleep routine. That's where innovation happens. I have never met an entrepreneur or a creator who was not crazy about what he or she was doing, even during moments of doubt and tough times. What could happen in a world where 100 percent of us would love what we did? The question is really that simple, but could revolutionize our world.

That is why what we used to call and define as "work" has to be reinvented, or destroyed.

I was invited to join the conversation at the Work Revolution Summit in New York last week. The Summit started by this fact: 70 percent of workers are not engaged in their work. The Monday blues is an epidemic disorder. The summit wanted to lead a discussion on what could be next. Asking for meaning in your life is not a luxury. It is a legitimate ambition for any human being. It can take different shapes for all of us but we should not be ashamed to ask: Why am I doing this every day? Why do I want to spend so much of my time here? Work is not about work, it's about life and what we do with it while we are on this planet. It may seem like a selfish question, but self awareness defines how you impact your community. Doing what you love is more about the others that it may seem.

It is about you, in all your dimensions. During the summit, we talked about the future of work, but there is one word that I never heard: employee. I heard all about "people" and how we want to be ourselves in our workplace. We do not want to be a number, not a specific task provider, but just who we are, with our skills, talents and uniqueness.

Work is not only about a task to perform. It's about a mission and a purpose you attach to it. Once again, "mission," "purpose," "culture" -- all this vocabulary I heard so much about during these two days seemed more related to life than to work. Meaning is not a generational quest and all of us constantly look for that sparkle that makes the ride on planet Earth worth experiencing. Work cannot be separated from this calling. I know it always seems scary when we talk about work-life merger more than balance, but I do believe it is the best phenomenon that could happen to us. It does not mean we have to become workaholics who spend 20 hours of their days glued to our screens. This merger represents the idea that we should not have to wake up every morning to stop "living" to go make one. We are the same human being when we are in an office or enjoying our favorite hobbies.

I once said that the internet incarnates the "oneness effect" of the generation Y, referring to the feelings astronauts had when seeing the planet for the first time from space. From so far away they could see no borders or countries, just a beautiful whole blue planet breathing all at once. This oneness concept has started infiltrating the future of work as well it has the generation leading the conversation. There is not a professional life as opposed to the rest of your life. We want to be one, aligned with our values and our personality in what we do.

Work is going to be transformed by this new mindset. Maybe we should even kill the following expression. "What do you do?" should be replaced by "what is your drive?" It seems more accurate with what the future should be. A world where we know our drive, what makes our heart and soul expand. Pure utopia for the ones who have time to think about enjoying what they do? I am not sure. Finding your drive will become a necessity for many of us very soon. In a world where many of the repetitive tasks will be replaced by robots, our refuge will be our creativity. Albert Einstein said that "Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere." Leave the data and logic to the computers. Let your drive bring you meaning.

The future of work is no work. It's time to kill it.

Work is dead, long live life.

Google Is Planning to Plan Your City- - The company has more practice than you might expect.

After years of mediating our digital lives, Google is formally venturing into the physical world.

Earlier this month, Google announced it would be starting a new company, Sidewalk Labs, to invent and invest in “urban technologies” that will produce, according to its founder, “extraordinary business opportunities and opportunities for improving quality of life.”  !?!?!?!?!?

The company has dabbled in urban planning for years, but this new investment seems to indicate those projects weren’t just for fun. As more people move to cities worldwide, the business of planning, innovating, and running those cities is poised to grow too—and it’s a model in which the “user” has no choice but to opt in.

Notes on art overproduction, post-photography and the digital | Roncoroni Osio | Artnodes

Notes on art overproduction, post-photography and the digital | Roncoroni Osio | Artnodes | Espaços expandidos | Scoop.it
Abstract

 

This essay discusses the post-photography statement in terms of its most important concepts: the author, poiesis as a prescription of meaning, recycling as artistic strategy, serendipity and art’s social and political struggle. Even sharing the fundamentals of Fontcuberta’s decalogue, it is necessary to underline that problems of overproduction cannot be actually solved. Something more is needed: a structural relationship with postmodern philosophical problems; a suppression of unrecognized modern aesthetic foundations; and a deeper analysis of the properties of digital media and technologies. Moreover, the photographic point of view is too narrow to grasp all the aesthetic consequences of the described artistic postmodern conditions. As a conclusion, some different hypotheses concerning uncommon theoretical and artistic practices are discussed.

Zapped! takes a close look at—and a new approach to—the mass deployment of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). RFID is not yet a household name or a pervasive technology, but Preemptive Media predicts that everyday encounters with this technology (whether known or not) will soon be commonplace. Zapped! is an effort to learn about and respond to the tags that industry is embracing for product tracking, the government for border control, schools for attendance-taking and public libraries for automatic checkout.

Zapped! is always changing because it is custom-tailored to the burgeoning RFID industry. Preemptive Media is not encouraging paranoia with Zapped!, but rather participation and preparation!

Rem Koolhaas pergunta: As cidades inteligentes estão condenadas à estupidez?

Rem Koolhaas pergunta: As cidades inteligentes estão condenadas à estupidez? | Espaços expandidos | Scoop.it

A arquitetura costumava tratar da criação de comunidades, e fazer o máximo de esforço para simbolizar aquelas comunidades. Desde o triunfo do mercado econômico no final da década de 1970, a arquitetura deixou de expressar os valores públicos e, ao invés disso, passou a expressar os valores do setor privado. Isso é de fato um regime - o regime ¥€$ - e ele invadiu todos os domínios, queiramos ou não. Esse regime teve um grande impacto nas cidades e no modo como compreendemos as cidades. Com segurança e proteção como argumentos de venda, a cidade se tornou muito menos aventureira e mais previsível. Para completar a situação, quando o mercado econômico ganhou força no final dos anos 1970, os arquitetos pararam de escrever manifestos....

Da Cidade Interativa à Cidade Participativa | desvirtual

Da Cidade Interativa à Cidade Participativa | desvirtual | Espaços expandidos | Scoop.it
As cidades contemporâneas foram expandidas pelas tecnologias digitais. Elas permitiram a ocupação de fachadas com telas e acesso, via aplicativos, a informações que vão do fluxo do trânsito ao mapeamento de remoções decorrentes de obras públicas. Se, ao longo dos anos 1990, os especialistas discutiam como apropriar-se das redes para tornar a cidade mais interativa, hoje, com a capilarização da tecnologia, a aposta é em como utilizá-las para interferir no cotidiano das cidades.

A discussão sobre “cidades inteligentes” cede, assim, espaço para a de cidadania, reinventando as formas de ocupar as ruas e as próprias noções de política urbana. Não se trata mais de apenas planejar e regrar o espaço coletivo, mas, sim, de como mobilizar para que essas regras sejam fluidas o suficiente para constituir e reconstituir o uso comum, conforme as necessidades do momento.

The Year in Selfies | The Creators Project | Espaços expandidos | Scoop.it

"From Richard Prince’s New Portraits exhibition at the Gagosian to high fashion brands like Moschino and Christian Cowan-Sanluis making mirrored hot pink iPhone cases and The Selfie Hat, respectively, the selfie was a thing of cultural fascination in 2014. This year, TIME Magazine released a map of the most “selfiest" cities in the world, the UK Electoral Commission ran a “Post No Selfies” campaign during their elections, and multiple identity fraud cases surroundedpeople accidentally posting selfies with their paychecks.

It was also the year of the #artselfie, seen through statues taking selfies, classical portraits taking selfies, Beyoncé and Jay Z taking one with the Mona Lisa, a student in Milan breaking a 19th Greco-Roman century statue in attempt to take a selfie, and ultimately, #artselfie a published book on the subject. All in all, the tech-assisted self-portrait had a big year in 2014.
