Warren Karlenzig - Collective Intelligence: Cities as Global Sustainability Platform | #smartcities

"Social media and collaborative technologies--layered with smart systems combining geo-location data with human experience--will make cities the driving sustainability force in a dawning planetary era. Cities will anticipate new risks with rapid urban systems innovation based upon crowdsourcing, virtual and physical communities, and transparent markets sensitive to full carbon and resource costs. Creatively leveraging collective intelligence for clean energy, low carbon mobility and sustainable food and water, the new urban grid will enable high local quality of life, lifelong learning and vibrant green economies."

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, July 24, 2013 4:36 PM

A TedX talk. It's good to be wary of solutionism in regard to solving social problems, but neither is it wise to rely on antiquated bureaucracies (alone) or private enterprise (alone) to tackle some of the real problems (and  unlock some of the real opportunities) of urbanization.

Guillermo Cerceau's comment, August 19, 2013 6:30 PM
I feel that the lecture leaves out all matters related to political power, precisely THE issue of cities and collaboration, I mean, that is what the "polis" of politics means.

Flowing Maps Explore the City's Impact on the Local Environment

Flowing Maps Explore the City's Impact on the Local Environment | The Body and expanded Cities | Scoop.it

Digital artist and illustrator Istvan has created a series of maps which artfully imagine the affect of cities and their human inhabitants on the local environment. His colorful images aren’t scientific in nature, but rather a personal exploration of what it might look like if the energies of the metropolis flowed out of the city itself.

“I wanted to represent the influence of cities on their environment as a kind of invisible fluid that overflows from the city to its surrounding.”

The flow of each city map was digitally rendered using local terrain to simulate the erosion flow Istvan desired, then reworked in Photoshop to create a unique identity for each place. The final images were printed on 70cm square acrylic glass.

U.S. spy agency predicts a very transhuman future by 2030

U.S. spy agency predicts a very transhuman future by 2030 | The Body and expanded Cities | Scoop.it
The National Intelligence Council has just released its much anticipated forecasting report, a 140-page document that outlines major trends and technological developments we should expect in the next 20 years. Among their many predictions, the NIC foresees the end of U.S. global dominance, the rising power of individuals against states, a growing middle class that will increasingly challenge governments, and ongoing shortages in water, food and energy. But they also envision a future in which humans have been significantly modified by their technologies — what will herald the dawn of the transhuman era.

Luciana de Paula's insight:

"After helping to define the digital era of architecture, Los Angeles-based architect and UCLA professor Greg Lynn has shifted his purview somewhat. Lynn can now be found conducting research on moving architecture, using the latest industrial technology to experiment with the possibilities of what it might mean for buildings to move, be moved, or take shape from a process involving movement."

<< Body and Virtuality - Paper: Open Body: media silicon, media Carbon... (portuguese)

Luciana de Paula's insight:

abstract: The body, the dance, the technology and the world are considered here semiotic and evolving open systems. And this comes from the hypothesis that these properties are the ones that could make possible the emergency of a new way from which contemporary dance would express itself: dance interactive technologies. These systems keep a constant exchange, transforming themselves and always tending to complexity. That’s why we appoach this here as Open Body: the carbon body’s media impregnated with silicon.
