Shifting to Network Thinking

By Eli Kuslansky

Inspiration comes from strange places, even dogs.

Twice a day, I walk my daughter’s dog, a small Pomeranian Chihuahua that takes an unusually long time sniffing for spots to do her business. I am not sure if she’s conducting some obscure canine research or just being fussy. But from her perspective, it’s probably about instinct, tagging, tracking and survival.

This got me thinking about how different points of view, even radical ones, can be catalysts for change or rationale for the status quo. (What can I say? It was a busy walk.)

Searching for Wild Energy

By Eli Kuslansky

While watching a documentary about Sholomon Naumovich Rabinovich, better known as Sholem Aleichem, several thoughts struck me about mining new sources of inspiration and evolving ideas over time. Over a twenty-year period, Sholomon wrote Tevye’s story for Fiddler on the Roof, in sync with the evolving narrative of his own life and his relationship with his daughters. Is this life imitating art or art imitating life?  This certainly represents a counterpoint to the instant gratification of today’s media.

Legible Cities conversation with Erhardt Graeff from MIT Media Lab

Eli: How can Legible Cities be manifested? Now it is mostly a concept. I was reading Townsend's book on big data and smart cities, which inspires this question. If city government's are more interested in using smart city models for promoting economic development and front the street development seems to take the form of Foursquare or Arduino projects, what is there out there for the "people's" view? Who would own and manage these new types of projects?

Prodigal Picks, Professions, and Prognostications

With the New Year approaching, we've donned our techno-psychic caps and assembled our predictions, inspirations, and rants for 2014:

1. Voice recognition will become an expected mode of software interface… turning crowded public, retail, and museum spaces into full-fledged seas of chaos.

2. Just as television providers have discovered unique content creation as the golden ticket for reaching audiences, cultural associations will create their own narrow cast channels.
