Vinay Venkatraman: “Technology crafts” for the digitally underserved


Why you should listen to him:

Designer Vinay Venkatraman is committed to creating a digitally inclusive world. A founding partner at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, Vinay aims to design for the populations of the world who don’t have access to the latest tech gadget. He calls his outlook “Frugal Digital.”

Vinay’s background is in industrial design, and he began his career fashioning bicycles and kitchen appliances. He was soon enticed by filmmaking and worked as visual effects designer for a leading post production house, Prime Focus Ltd, on various advertisements and movies. He later shifted his focus to software products, working as a product designer at Microsoft for emerging technologies.

Vinay’s work has been written about in leading design magazines and popular blogs. He has also taught courses at Aarhus University, IUAV University in Venice and the IT University of Copenhagen.

"Vinay Venkatraman, an interaction designer, is one of a rapidly expanding group of scholars and professionals around the world working to define the way our stuff behaves."

One of the best (and funniest) illustrations of science and history - EVER. Thank you to @Oatmeal for making this, and to @blundstone for putting it on my radar.

Let us toast to the great Nikola Tesla, to his unmatched revolutionary contributions to humanity, and hopefully, to justice! May his clear intention to gift humanity with his novel technology that generates free, wireless electricity eventually unfold as part of the future generation’s reality. 

P.S. Good or not, I do pray Thomas Edison’s soul hangs out somewhere near Hitler’s, along with other terrible d-bags and moochers like J.P. Morgan.

There are no words to describe my feelings about this relationship. But I’m going to try.

First of all, their parallels. Both geniuses, top of their field. Both suffered an accident that physically changed them, forever, and not in a wholesome Spider-Man kind of way. Both try to do what they can to help others despite their own issues; Banner heals people, Tony works on developing clean energy. And both struggle, in their own way, with duality; Tony and Iron Man, Bruce and the Hulk. Two identities, one body. Only difference is Iron Man’s bad side is Tony.

I mentioned somewhere that Tony sees a bit of himself in Banner because they both have a monster inside them that they can’t control, a creature that springs fully formed from the id, the base impulses and the nasty stuff at the back of the mind. Bruce’s is a giant green rage monster. Tony’s trashed a party in Iron Man 2. Banner has a control over his that Tony hasn’t quite achieved yet; don’t think I didn’t notice Tony pouring himself a whiskey when confronting Loki. Tony is envious, fascinated, and most of all, impressed by Bruce’s control.

So he doesn’t walk on eggshells around Bruce like the others, because that’s not what Bruce needs. Tony sees Bruce’s restraint, sees the quiet, brilliant man making self-deprecating jokes in the corner of the room, sees the way people look at him like he’s going to snap any second, and thinks “nope”. Tony does what no-one else aboard that Helicarrier does. He trusts him. He makes jokes and jabs him and teases him and above all, treats him exactly how he would treat anyone else— he has a great regard for Bruce’s brilliance, and tells him so, but he doesn’t try to ignore the Hulk in the room. When he says “wow, you’ve really got a handle on this, haven’t you?” he’s not saying “gosh, it’s incredible you haven’t snapped yet and killed everyone on board” he’s saying “I know you have a handle on this, you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t, so I’m gonna poke you with this sharp object to prove it”. And you can see Bruce relax, and smile, and trust him back.

But then Tony goes even further, and invites Bruce to come to his R&D department. I’m pretty sure the two of them drive off together in Tony’s car at the end of the movie to do just that. And, okay, sure, Bruce is smart, but Tony’s tech is his baby. How many people get invitations to come and see his work? He invites Bruce because he recognises his brilliance, yes, but there’s another reason. He’s inviting Bruce to come down and work with him after this is over. He’s giving Bruce something to do next, a purpose, an alternative to disappearing into the ether to be alone with his monster. Tony knows from experience that being alone with your issues doesn’t end well, so for what’s only the third time in his life he extends the hand of friendship to a guy he’s known barely an hour.

And then, he tells Bruce to let the beast loose. Not just because they need him to fight, but because it will help him. If Bruce can take this thing that he sees as a curse and turn it into a gift, well, that’s going to lift him out of a very dark place. I’m not saying Tony knew about Bruce’s attempted suicide, but I think he had a suspicion that Bruce had been, in his words, “low”. So he encourages Bruce to take all that crap and pain and the Other Guy and use him to help people; after all, that’s what he did.

And it pays off. Nobody— nobody— thinks Bruce is going to turn up for that final battle. You can see the look on Natasha and Steve’s faces when Tony asks if Bruce turned up yet. They’ve counted Bruce out. Guy’s a mess, right? He’s too volatile. Doesn’t play well with others. He could never work as part of a team. No-one thinks he’ll come through when it matters. Except Tony. He has faith in him, and that faith is rewarded. It’s no wonder the Hulk is the one to catch Tony. Tony’s the one who helped let him out. He’s just returning the favor.

I’m a tree hugger. I climb mountains. And I love Nikola Tesla. Among Tesla’s great discoveries is the principle of Environmental Energy - the Discovery of a new physical Truth that “there is no energy in matter other than that received from the environment.” 

So… When was the last time you hugged a tree? When was the last time you planted one? When you hug trees, they hug you back with invisible arms that envelop you with lots of good energy. 

Japanese researchers have recently shown that "forest bathing," taking long walks among trees, helps stimulate the immune system and leads to greater health. ”It is regarded as being similar to natural aromatherapy,” say the researchers.

Other than trees, there are plants like hemp which absorb four times more carbon dioxide than trees. Hemp is the miracle plant of our time. Trees take 20 years to mature versus 4 months for Industrial Hemp. Our forests are being cut down 3x faster than they can grow. One acre of hemp produces as much cellulose fiber pulp as 4.1 acres of trees. (Dewey & Merrill. Bulletin #404. U.S. Dept. of Age. 1916

SO WHAT LINKS THE LEGALISATION OF CANNABIS OR INDUSTRIAL HEMP (iHemp), AND REAL CAPITALISM THAT IS IN HARMONY WITH THE ENVIRONMENT? And what does my love for Tesla have to do with inspiring all these thoughts?

Cannabis has not been grown for sale in a number of countries, including Philippines and the United States, for most of the past 100 years (except as a manila hemp substitute during World War II) because of concerns that the non-industrial type would also become available and be processed for drug use. 

DID-YOU-KNOW STUFF:

Henry Ford’s first Model-T  was built to run on hemp gasoline and the CAR ITSELF WAS CONSTRUCTED FROM HEMP. On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, ‘grown from the soil,’ had plastic panels made from a mixture of 70% cellulose fibers from hemp whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel at 2/3rd’s the weight for better economy (Popular Mechanics, 1941) Alcohol prohibition prevented Mr. Ford from powering his fleet with “plant-power”.

Consider a few more facts about hemp:
• Hemp does not require herbicides or pesticides.
• Hemp can be grown in a wide range of latitudes and altitudes.
• Hemp replenishes soil with nutrients and nitrogen, making it  an excellent rotational crop.
• Hemp controls erosion of the topsoil.
• Hemp converts CO2 to oxygen better than trees.
• Hemp produces more oil than any other crop, which can be  used for food, fuel, lubricants, soaps, etc.
• Hemp nut is a very healthy food, being the highest   protein  crop (after soybean) and high in omega oils.
• Hemp can be used for making plastics, including car parts.
• Hemp makes paper more efficiently and ecologically than  wood, requiring no chemical glues.
• Hemp can be used to make fiberboard.
• Hemp can be used to make paint.
• Hemp can produce bio-fuel and ethanol (better than corn).
• Hemp can be grown more than once per year.
• Hemp fibers can make very strong rope and textiles.

Now, with so much use for hemp, why is cannabis illegal in most countries? Simple. Because government and military control production and distribution. :P Government does NOT like competition.

Junkies & Hippies Who Cry for Peace

The moment you smoke a joint, make music and works of art that spread good vibes to end hatred and violence, and then maybe even join rallies and parties for peace, seriously, don’t expect me to applaud you for awesomeness. It’s RIDICULOUS. You get hippie and all that, you say you hate wars waged by governments, and yet - 90% of the time (unless you plant your own without fear of getting raided and arrested) - YOU FUND THOSE WARS.

If you take it as food, as medicine, and if you plant your own cannabis, well, I applaud you. :P Use it, don’t abuse it. In part, it’s the hippies who smoke it as a drug that make it so much harder to get it legalised for industrial and truly medicinal purposes that will benefit both humankind and the environment.

I know I have friends who love to smoke weed, and this entry is not meant to offend you or judge you. I merely ask you to consider the implications of your Mary Jane addiction to the cause of legalising this miracle plant for industrial and medicinal use. I ask you to reflect on how sincerely you stand for world peace. The more sober you are, the more actively you can follow and critically analyse things that happen around you. Ergo, the more impact you can have in making this world truly a better place to live in…for real. AND NOT JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE HIGH. 

Think about it.

Now… My thoughts on government, and corporations cannot be summed up in one blog entry. More than a decade into studying and partaking in politics, business, media and leadership, I still believe in the free market idea proposed by Ayn Rand. I also believe that spiritual solutions are needed to effectively address the economic problems of our time. Now, by spiritual, obviously, I don’t mean empowering the church. (Don’t even get me started with the Vatican Business Conglomerate’s financial holdings in the manufacturing of condoms and weapons of mass destruction.)

By “spiritual solutions to economic problems”, in part, I refer to the our generation’s need to see ourselves as part of the problem. We cannot be self-righteous brats, attacking and protesting how governments put more money in war than education; while smoking weed, getting wasted, partying like animals, polluting our minds with senseless television shows, buying everything advertisers say we N-E-E-D, getting addicted and lost in virtual realities of games that take our minds off what is real.

We cannot call the older generation of leaders hypocrites when we ourselves suffer from our own contradictions. Every fault we see in them touches a denied weakness within ourselves. 

I find it funny how some socialists attack capitalism, and corporations as if they were one and the same. AS IF, real capitalism ever existed. The reason corporations today are so big and powerful is not because of a free market, unlike what many socialists claim. It is because of government.

Government alters the market and gets in bed with the companies they want and it creates monopolies. (Think: Ferdinand Marcos, Ayalas, Lopezes, Aquinos, Cojuangcos, Juan Ponce Enrile, Fidel Valdez Ramos, Lucio Tan, Henry Sy, Manny Villar, etc. ~  What do they have in common here in Philippines? CONTROL IN GOVERNMENT, INFLUENCE IN THE MEDIA & MONOPOLY OF VARIOUS INDUSTRIES.) In a truly free market, monopolist individuals and corporations would lose all the power they have through government, and there would be a level playing field.

There are people who argue for government, yet government is the reason we are not allowed to farm industrial hemp. Industrial hemp is a cheaper, more sustainable way to produce many things that we currently produce by chopping down trees. In a truly free market, deforestation would be slowed down immensely because we would have the freedom to produce and buy alternatives, and evil practices that are killing the planet would not be subsidised as they are now.

Socialism and Oligopoly (Oligarch Monopoly) are basically what we have now. You see, corporations abhor free markets. Corporations, like government, loathe competition. Monopoly cannot co-exist with real capitalism. Real capitalism is not driven by monetary profits alone, but by the holistic concept of VALUE.

Value includes healthy competition, respect for human dignity, sustainable production, and innovations that benefit both humans and the environment.  

Corporations and corporate slaves use “capitalism” to describe what they do, but all they are are philosophically confused socialists disguised in corporate suits, sipping latté, eating sushi, loving tofu, maybe smoking pot, and spending three times more for the products of “fair trade” and “organic” markets - but know NOTHING about how small-scale farmers continue to get exploited by most of these so-called “green industries”.

Fair trade is NOT fair

Fair trade is neither fair nor good for trade. It transpires that a very small number of farmers are getting a subsidised fixed price for their produce under Fairtrade franchises and that this is at the expense of most other farmers in their regions, who are actually worse off as a result.

But even more serious, the Fairtrade operation helps to keep poor countries and undeveloped economies exactly that - poor and undeveloped. (Read More: Forget Fairtrade)

Nikola Tesla, often attempted to introduce, into our society, totally new ways of producing electrical power – steering us away from long term dependency on oil; however his new ideas were not accepted in his own time. In spite of this, Tesla did not allow himself to become a bitter, resentful, nor a negative person! Because of his advanced Inner Perception and spiritual nature, he often remarked that his ideasnot readily acceptedwould be taken up by future generations. He said:

"The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of a planterfor the future. His duty is to lay foundation of those who are to come and point the way.”

With the help of the hemp plant, we, as a society, could eliminate smog from current fuels, create a cleaner energy source that can replace nuclear power, remove radioactive waste from the soil, and significantly eliminate smog from our skies in more industrialised areas.

The hemp plant could assist in eliminating non-biodegradable plastics and cars by reintroducing Henry Ford’s 100 year old dream of building cars made from hemp with a plastic hemp car body that can withstand a blow 10 times as great as steel without denting, weighs 1 thousand pounds less than steel, hence improving gas mileage, can run on a vegetable oil based all natural hemp fuel, and has a completely biodegradable body.

Nationwide hemp production could eliminate deforestation by converting current paper to hemp paper which can be recycled up to 8 times where as our current wood pulp is only recyclable up to 3 times, and we could thrive from eating hemp seeds and feeding it to our animals and livestock.

Remember: there was a great deal of opposition to Tesla’s ideas; his spirit was one of a discoverer and inventornot a materialist interested in huge profits. Against tremendous odds, Nikola Tesla dedicated his life to the task of designing and improving technology for the service and spiritual advancement of all humanity. In a truly free market, Tesla’s inventions, like free wireless electricity, would have long served to uplift humanity from extreme poverty.

In the same manner, in a truly free market, among the hemp plant’s estimated 50,000 uses and benefits, industrial hemp’s biomass can be converted into gasoline, methanol, and methane at a fraction of the current cost of oil, coal, or nuclear energy.

Cannabis Hemp can replace any of the products made from timber. No more forests would be needlessly wasted. This would save precious resources and renew the ecosystems. More importantly, it would mean more beautiful heritage to grow for our children.

Until such time that we can all finally cheer “iHemp iHemp Hurray!”, let us continue doing our part to plant all kinds of illegal trees in our own backyard, and organise/join reforestation projects in our own local communities. 

Love and Light,

Drei ze Geek Goddess.

Slavery Footprint Case Study (by MuhtayzikHoffer)

WAR ON THE POVERTY OF MINDS:
I used to be so proud of having come from a family of educators and intellectuals. However, I am now at a phase in my life wherein I realise the futility, and sometimes, the phoniness of intellectualism. Phony intellectualism can obscure the real poverty of minds and practical confusion.
Imagine how, in the 1800s, a child with humble origins like that of Abraham Lincoln, merely had to learn how to read in order for him to study voraciously on his own. Lincoln did not attend school as a youngster, except for during a brief period from 1820 to 1822. In between working in the fields, doing odd-jobs for neighbours, and taking flatboats of cargo, he continued to read and educate himself. Later, he became the sixteenth president of the United States.
Today, more and more people are pursuing graduate school, and other forms of higher learning; while there are still millions who cannot even read. Of course, I don’t have anything against higher learning if one is pursuing it passionately out of love, and not simply in order to get more academic merits for CV purposes.
I guess what really bothers me is how our generation seems to generally follow - hook, line, and sinker - society’s expectations that we need to go through all that, just to be AWESOME. We don’t have to. 
I remember being 12 years old, and with a team of three other teenagers, my mother threw us a big challenge. We went alone to teach in far-flung towns in various provinces, we conquered jungles to visit and immerse with various tribes residing in Palawan Island, Philippines. And there, I was able to teach other children, AND adults. I was 12. And yet, I already had so much that I could give back to the local community. We didn’t need to be specialists of any sort in education. We just needed to have the happy heart to teach! :) 
My parents made way for my brother and I to attend finer schools, to volunteer for causes we believe in, and to travel the world. However, I still feel that our family has done too little in this war to end the poverty of minds.
The small foundation founded by the grandparents which has provided scholarships to children of farmers (i.e. tenants in the family farm) in Mindanao, Philippines, to me, is, of course, a good initiative. Based on results, however, it has done very little to actually improve the quality of life of all the children and their families whom the foundation has helped in the past few decades. Helping in the family foundation can get pretty messy though, especially with all the egos currently involved in running it. :(
Weapon of Mass Instruction, An Art Car Tank That Gives Out Books is a good example of one man’s innovative spirit to fight the war on mind poverty.
Here in Philippines, there are many areas wherein before distributing books, we must first do our part to help spread literacy. Let’s do our part, no matter how little. More than money, imagine what a wonderful and priceless gift it would be if one were to take in even just one child, or perhaps three, depending on one’s capacity; and tutor them regularly to read and count for an hour or two over the weekend. :)
Who knows? Maybe the child you teach ABCs and 123s to today, will be the best President of the Philippines tomorrow.
