GravityLight: i don’t know about its resource-efficiency, but this lamp makes a lot of sense: replacing the battery by using gravity’s potential energy makes this a much more eco-friendly product and presumably increases its life-span due to less ‘high-tech’ parts that need specialized maintenance.

no wonder they already raised three times the amount (as of dec 17) they were looking for - awesome project!

charming introduction to masterpeace, an initiative using the power of art to “inspire world leaders to really deliver on two extremely important goals: creating a world with less armed conflicts and no nuclear arms, creating a world in which opportunities are shared equally.”

UnBox Festival: exactly where i need to be next week. luckily, i already have my plane ticket and visa- extremely excited about this!

The UnBox Festival is a response to the emergence of a new subculture: one that straddles the spirit of innovation, is fostered by an enterprising spirit, and invites the engagement of all senses. UnBox manifests itself as a blend of different events - including a conference, workshops, exhibitions and performances - designed in sync with one another, to stimulate thought, debate and action.

short documentary on the salton sea, i think this fits the occasion of the disappointing outcome in durban. is this how a post-apocalyptic world (i.e. a likely future) will look like?

basically, what confessions of an economic hitman is about. i read this book years ago, and i find it hard to argue that this not close to what is happening in the world. this clip is made by the renegade economist, who are also behind the four horsemen feature film.



























still lots of problems to solve!
