Plaited from thin fragile reeds

I walked delicately as a butterfly

And heavily as an elephant…

#cyberpeacefare #Lewis Mumford Quotes

"Nothing is unthinkable, nothing is impossible to the balanced person, provided it comes out of the needs of life and is dedicated to life's further developments." 

"A good technology, firmly related to human needs cannot be one that has maximum productivity as its supreme goal; it must rather, as in an organic system, seek to provide the right quantity of the right quality at the right time and right place for the right purpose."

(Lewis Mumford was a writer for the New Yorker…

The Outreach on the Boko Haram Abduction of the Chibok School Girls

The Gated Communities of Machines: Virtual “Life”?

“In prosperous sections, especially in the ‘young married set,’ there were many women who had nothing to do. Though they had few servants, yet with gas stoves, electric ranges and dish-washers and vacuum cleaners, and tiled kitchen walls, their houses were so convenient that they had little housework, and much of their food came from bakeries and delicatessens. They had but two, one, or no children; and despite the myth that the Great War had made work respectable, their husbands objected…

Where is Northern Ireland Now? with Peter Weir & Máirtín Ó Muilleoir

Peter Weir of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and Máirtín Ó Muilleoir of Sinn Féin give their views on the situation in Northern Ireland, from the still unresolved collapse of the government in 2017 to the uncertainties over Brexit. Both agree that while there has been tremendous progress since the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, there is still much to be done--and according to Ó Muilleoir, many citizens are still not receiving equal treatment.

An Introduction to "Wellbeing in Northern Ireland" with Carnegie UK Trust's Martyn Evans

When Andrew Carnegie set up the Carnegie UK Trust, his mandate was short and to the point: Its mission is improve the wellbeing of the people of the United Kingdom, a task that Carnegie realized would change over time as people's needs changed. "The Trust is required to take risk," says its CEO Martyn Evans, who gives an overview of their work today, including libraries and research on towns, fulfilling work, and digital futures.
