Post-Planetary #3 – Research Topic

Going from macro to micro in the last two posts where I found a place to settle my mind into. Researching even more the subject and giving some thought about how a industrial model in a post-planetary scale would work/be and then I realized who is going to be behind it. Who will be making those complex value/supply chains work? Who will be in charge of creating the new services and tweaking/totally remaking them from scratch? The Designer, as we know. They already do it, they are doing it right now on a planetary level. I mentioned IDIOM on the last post to give an example of what is happening right now. Design with speed and scale at the same time with very limited amount of resources, not only material resources but knowledge as well (since India does not have enough designers to work with such complexity/scale).

In a post planetary scale, how it’s going to be a designer work and function? What kind of tools they will have at their disposal? Maybe creativity virus, like the empathy virus we can see working on CODE 46 where professionals can use certain virus as biological enhancers to increase/or give them very specific abilities. Maybe designers will have enhanced reality tools allowing them to do any kind of research/learn about anything from anywhere they want like the novel Rainbow’s End. Computers with a high capacity of framing/thinking logically to aid the process or even do the entire job and we won’t need designers for certain tasks anymore, like Kubrick’s 2001 – A Space Odissey super computer HAL-9000 capable of simulating many of human aspects.

There are many things we could extract for all those examples, movies, books, games and many more. Creating a viable scenario of pure speculation on what might be the future of a designer and his place into the post planetary society. That’s my final topic for the rest of the semester. Speculating about the roles and problems a designer will have to deal with and how his work methods will be, based on wild (wanna put some emphasis on the wild) technology speculation – What will be around to change the way design is made. That’s the short version of my research topic – Designer’s in a post planetary-scale – their tools, methods, roles and technology.

Lixo da Vez - Ronaldo o FENOMENO?!

Oi, queria agradecer ao espaço cedido pelo amigo e também entusiasta da copa, Bocadoogro.
Vocês sabem que eu sempre fui brasileiro desde que nasci no Brasil. Gosto muito do brasil e vou curtir muito assistir a copa do meu telão de cinema na minha casa lá na europa.

Mas vim aqui para um assunto mais importante. Essa palhaçada toda de protesto a respeito de usar dinheiro da copa para fazer hospital. Amigo, repito e disse, não se faz copa com hospital! Precisamos de estádio. Esse dinheiro que foi pro estádio não iria para hospital. Se não fosse pela copa o estádio nem o hospital existiria.

Vocês reclamam de hospital, não entendo! Sempre que fico gripado ou preciso de médico o Sírio-Libânes tá lá de boa. Não entendo essas reclamações. Neste ponto eu apoio meu amigo Pelé, grande sábio. Vamos esquecer essas bobeiras e focar na copa.

Grande abraço para vocês, do Ronaldinho Fenômeno.
