I don’t own anything. I don’t own a car. I don’t own a house. I don’t own any appliances or any clothes.
Everything you considered a product, has now become a service. We have access to transportation, accommodation, food and all the things we need in our daily lives. One by one all these things became free, so it ended up not making sense for us to own much.
Now I can hardly believe that we accepted congestion and traffic jams, not to mention the air pollution from combustion engines. What were we thinking?
some things seem never seem to lose their excitement: walking, biking, cooking, drawing and growing plants.
In our city we don’t pay any rent, because someone else is using our free space whenever we do not need it.
When products are turned into services, no one has an interest in things with a short life span. Everything is designed for durability, repairability and recyclability.
Shopping? I can’t really remember what that is. For most of us, it has been turned into choosing things to use.
When AI and robots took over so much of our work, we suddenly had time to eat well, sleep well and spend time with other people
Once in awhile I get annoyed about the fact that I have no real privacy. No where I can go and not be registered. I know that, somewhere, everything I do, think and dream of is recorded. I just hope that nobody will use it against me.
2014 tedxhousesofparliament – it’s the people stupid
felt guilty because so many didn’t vote.. felt like maybe we had left them
i asked Henning the plumber what we should do
we had to look at the people out there.. saying.. maybe they had some new ideas..
we analyzed .. who do we think are the important/relevant people to talk to.. regarding climate change
let’s talk (rather listen) to all of them.. no..?
kept asking.. what should we do.. and who else should we talk to.. then invited all into workshop….1\ found big mistake 2\ got a lot of new ideas..
yes.. let’s do this daily.. we can now.. ginormously small ness..
and imagine.. many of things you mention.. would become irrelevant.. back to your welcome to 2030
sounds like city sketch up ness.. as the day
us politicians seem so remote.. all we talk about fiscal balances.. budgets.. 2020 plans..
how to win back the people….. what i could learn from 1\ her.. was to be human.. do this because right thing to do..
not easy balancing public/private life.. no such thing as right thing.. often politicians have just two options..
2\ he’s out of the bubble..
combine the two.. the human.. out of the bubble..
there is no quick fix..
it’s not because we’re stupid or evil sometimes it’s just difficult to do the right thing..
making laws like making sausages.. rather not see how made.. i think he’s wrong.. we have to show people what’s in sausages.. we can show them so they can do it
politics is not about economy (b clinton) .. it’s about the people
