Flaws of the Smart City

Flaws of the Smart City | Newsgames | Scoop.it

Flaws of the Smart City is a critical kit to explore the dark faces of the so-called Smart Cities. As any hardware or software piece, the connected cities embed flaws. This kit aims to fix these weak spots or to exploit them to set chaos.

This is a workshop-tailored kit. 
It has been created to foster conversations during brainstorming sessions, to envisage concepts and to build scenarios for debates.

Florent de Grissac's insight:

A useful, and maybe a bit depressing, analog kit designed to fuel conversations about the futur of smart cities. Downloadable in English and French.

Ortolandes

Ortolandes | Newsgames | Scoop.it

Find out what the French tradition reserves for ortolan bunting in the Landes.
After being captured during their migration from Northern Europe to Africa, those little birds are fattened in dark rooms (so they don't have anything else to do but eat) and are drowned, yes drowned, in Armagnac, a french alcohol.

All this in the name of tradition, to be eaten roasted by people who don't care to endanger a species to satisfy their greed.

Florent de Grissac's insight:

A newsgame by Casus Ludi about the poaching tradition of ortolan bunting in France.
