Plymouth Prowler - Wikicars

Plymouth Prowler - Wikicars | Writing mag | Scoop.it
Mick D Kirkov's insight:

June 2, 2015

The day before yesterday a brand new Chrisler Prowler, black one (that means, it was constructed in 1999 or 2000) was driving parallel to me in front of the Bern's railway station. I knew the story that: "Only one High Voltage Electric Blue Prowler with matching trailer was made. Signified the end of production in February 15, 2002."  But that black one was brand new, I swear! Anyway, dieselpunk from time to time, steampunk some times, and in the rest of the time simply punk like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9uubncbRlM or rather Daft Punk like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NF-kLy44Hls

Mick D Kirkov's insight:

It doesn't matter how senseless and ugly the over-constructed vehicles could work on our imagination, the main point is to respect and keep the art laws and if this is a relatively new field like diesel as opposite to steam, create own laws in the art, that's important. Here's how I marked the event on the film horizon https://www.pinterest.com/pin/328270260315920924/ .

Creative Destruction

Creative Destruction | Writing mag | Scoop.it
It's much worse than people realize.

Via Seth Dixon

Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 13, 9:57 AM

The relatively recent decline of music industry, as well as the newspaper industry, are good examples to teach the concept of creative destruction.  As jobs are created through new emerging technologies, older jobs will be rendered obsolete and be 'destroyed.'  While many bemoan the loss of particular jobs as regrettable, it is a part of globalization of economic geography that as jobs are created with new technologies, other jobs disappear.  Indoor plumbing meant the death of the water-carrying guilds (while I might be sad they lost their jobs, I'm keeping my plumbing).  The trick is to make these transitions smooth and to prepare the labor force to have skills that the new economy will demand so that individual families and workers aren't casualties of this 'creative destruction' process.     


Tagseconomic, laborglobalization, unit 6 industry.

LEONARDO WILD's curator insight, March 30, 9:13 AM

Creative destruction may sound like an oxymoron—as sometimes our linguistic creativity is capable of doing, in spite of what certain expressions really mean when looked at closely ("near miss," "wireless fiber")—because it is. Yet in our minds, it makes sense, and that seems to be enough. The problem with "creative" destruction is that the creative side speaks of the "winners" and "destruction" of the losers. So we are up against a "win-lose" situation. The ultimate loss appears when we, while being creative, lose our human traits; the true measure of any technology's positive—or negative–effect on our well being beyond the merely material.

Luis Cesar Nunes's curator insight, March 31, 7:48 AM

We are becoming obsolete as a Charlie Chaplin film, perpetuate the grace of the silent film as the industry is all forward-talkie.
