talk : discussion : politics : infrastructure : disaster
May 17, 2012 20:15
Vinay Gupta, designer of the hexayurt emergency shelter (which is open source and used widely at Burning Man) will discuss practical models for making decentralized politics (including Gandhi and anarchosyndicalism) work in a high tech age. We'll talk a bit about rich/poor, urban/rural, agrarian/manufacturing splits, about how to achieve local political control of physical assets like power and water and how a crisis like the one in Greece could push us into a new, more democratic and more connected, political age.   Also there will be diagrams.   After the talk we'll have a discussion/Q&A about these topics. Feel free to bring food and snacks to share (vegetarian, please).   Vinay is fresh from his keynote address at Camp Pixelache 2012 in Helsinki and comes to Tallinn courtesy of Pixelversity/Pixelache.
