About this ReSearch Topic | Stream 2 | #C3res2

| Starting on November 9th, 2016 the modern corporatocracy stepped into the open making itself arrogantly visible to all Americans.  The hubris is alarming. The lack of respect for people, life and authentic American values such as democracy and equality, simply shocking.

As author and resistance activist Naomi Klein notes in her book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate “Slavery wasn’t a crisis for British and American elites until abolitionism turned it into one. Racial discrimination wasn’t a crisis until the civil rights movement turned it into one. Sex discrimination wasn’t a crisis until feminism turned it into one. Apartheid wasn’t a crisis until the anti-apartheid movement turned it into one.” The newly emergent resistance movement will be making modern corporatocracy a crisis for the power elite.

In her book “The Shock Doctrine” Klein foresaw the future of we face in America today in places like Iraq and Chili stating that “a more accurate term for a system that erases the boundaries between Big Government and Big Business is not liberal, conservative or capitalist but corporatist. Its main characteristics are huge transfers of public wealth to private hands, often accompanied by exploding debt, an ever-widening chasm between the dazzling rich and the disposable poor, and an aggressive nationalism that justifies bottomless spending on security.”

You can connect with the both the American and Global Resistance movement through this ReSearch Stream.

Stream 2 Past ReSearch Topics

  • Exploring and Defining the Essential “Eco-Civic Design” Perspectives + Concepts
    Channel: #C3LDdt | Design + Thinking
    January 7, 2017 (Use this date to locate the last Tweet for this ReSearch in the twitter stream)
    We’re exploring the essential eco-civic design perspectives + concepts. We’ve identified (5) perspectives that are prevalent (listed in alphabetical order): Healthy, Regenerative, Resilient, Restorative and Sustainable.
    What did we learn? We developed short definitions for the each of the (5) perspectives and tweeted them. We looked for a generic, academically appropriate meta-perspective that could hold all five and settled on Ecosocial.
  • High-Performing / Low-cost Bird Safe Glass Frits + Patterns
    Channel: #C3LDpp | People* + Products
    August 29, 2016 (Use this date to locate the last Tweet for this ReSearch in the twitter stream)
    We dived into the specifics of bird safe insulated glass units looking for effective frits + patterns that can provide bird safety.
    What did we learn? The research on bird safety is nascent, but compelling and useful. Horizontal lines may be one of the more effective approaches. Uniform, dispersed patterns may be less effective. Try for a risk rating of 15 or less with 10 or below being preferred.

    June 12, 2016 (Use this date to locate the last Tweet for this ReSearch in the Twitter stream)
    We searched for Thin-film PV products that can be effectively applied to glass surfaces such as building guard rails.
  • Using Stormwater Rate Control Tanks for Rainwater Harvesting
    Channel:  #C3LDpw | Plants + Water

    Clean Water is rapidly becoming a precious resource. How can we leverage Stormwater Rate Control Tanks to Harvest Rain Water?

| We’re exploring the essential eco-civic design perspectives + concepts. We’ve identified (5) perspectives that are prevalent (listed in alphabetical order): Healthy, Regenerative, Resilient, Restorative and Sustainable. Our goal is identify short working definitions for each.  We’re also asking a bigger question – are there more? What are some of the essential concepts that support these perspectives? Our last Stream 2 ReSearch Topic for this stream was “High performing / low-cost frits, patterns and coatings that can effectively meet the needs of bird safe insulated glass was completed on August 29, 2016. More information on past research is available further below.  ReSearch notes for this topic are available here →

  • What is the role of Architecture + Design in a Resilient Society?
    Channel: #C3LDdt | Design + Thinking
    November 26, 2016 (Use this date to locate the ReSearch in the twitter stream)
    Research Brief: We believe architecture + design are changing due to the powerful influence of computers, globalization and environmental degradation on society. The scope and intensity of change are similar to the period that gave rise to the Bauhaus and similar schools of design in 1919.
    What did we learn? Our research was based on being “aware” of the topic and watching for articles that addressed the issue. Very little crossed our path. Either the information available is not part of our “flow” or there is a limited amount being written specific to the issue. Bruce Mau’s “Resilient Design: It’s all in the Blueprint” was the most direct finding. Other findings where good indicators of what design might address, but they were not written specifically in design vernacular. The comparisons between the 1919 Bauhaus and the current state of society are even more relevant after the 2016 U.S. election of authoritarian + strongman Donald Trump.

    We explored the current technologies and potential for converting water to hydrogen + storing it using Wind Power.

The land of 10,000 lakes may be facing a clean water challenge. We’re doing some ReSearch to better understand the challenge.
