The Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is presenting at ARC, its experimental space, CO-WORKERS – Network as Artist: a selection of international artists trained during the 2000s whose innovative practices are largely based on networking.

The Good Sides of Work

The Good Sides of Work | Time and Motion - Re-defining Working Life | Scoop.it
We're used to thinking about the good sides of work purely in terms of money and status, and tend to forget a raft of other benefits that work - however modest it might be - can bring us. We went around the world to interview a diverse range of people at their jobs, in order to tease out some

Creativity in the Smart City Is What Makes a City Really Smart | Time and Motion - Re-defining Working Life | Scoop.it
As we move into a new economy that values creativity and innovation, we need to reinvent our schools and our communities, where our young people spend more that half their time. Indeed, all of us need places that nurture our creative self.

Is it Crazy To Charge People To Send You Email?

Is it Crazy To Charge People To Send You Email? | Time and Motion - Re-defining Working Life | Scoop.it
How many e-mails do you have in your inbox? In general, each one represents a task—something to read, a query to answer, a meeting to schedule, a bill to pay, a request to fulfill or deny.

Luis Suarez's curator insight, May 12, 2013 8:53 AM

"All of these are useful approaches, but none alleviates the recipient’s burden: The system still lets other people add things to my to-do list" < This is essentially one of the many problems that email has got as a collaboration tool, for sure, but from that to say that you are going to charge those who send you emails is a mistake, and a big one.

 

Not a chance that it will happen within the corporate environment, because the individuals would not pay for the emails they send, but their companies will cover the costs, which will result in nothing happening. And I just can't see companies taking off that money from their employees monthly payslip when they are doing "their" work. 

 

Talking about using wrong incentives to provoke a different set of habits and behaviours. $$$ is never a good one in that matter. Never was, never will, imo. It's in the value of the interactions where you would need to invest the heavier, if you would want to make it succeed.

Robots 'will make majority of humans unemployed within 30 years'

Robots 'will make majority of humans unemployed within 30 years' | Time and Motion - Re-defining Working Life | Scoop.it
The pace at which robots and intelligent machines are able to take over the jobs traditionally performed by humans will result in more than half the population being unemployed within 30 years, an expert in computing has predicted.

While some may look forward to a life of leisure, many others face the dismal prospect of long-term unemployment as a result of the rise of smart machines, from self-driving cars and intelligent drones to smart financial-trading machines, said Moshe Vardi, professor of computational engineering at Rice University in Houston, Texas.

Postscript on the Societies of Control - Gilles Deleuze

Postscript on the Societies of Control - Gilles Deleuze | Time and Motion - Re-defining Working Life | Scoop.it
In this short essay Deleuze looks to move beyond Michel Foucault’s historical understanding of ‘disciplinary societies’, where power is exercised within discrete institutions, towards the concept of 'societies of control'. In many ways it parallels the ideas of the Italian radical left around the concept of the ‘social factory’, providing an intersection between post-structuralist philosophy and autonomist Marxism.
