NYC Mesh
Here’s a list of our reasons for building a community-owned mesh network:

Self configuring (simple!)
Emergency community networking (for next hurricane)
Freedom from the telecom oligopoly of Time Warner, Verizon, Comcast
A neutral network that does not block or discriminate content
No personal data collection
Public wifi access points
Decentralized, no single point of failure
Community building with highly localized websites
Close the digital divide
Potentially higher symmetrical bandwidth than provided by the oligopoly
Creating an infrastructure commons. The community owns the network.
Eventual self-sufficient network as alternative to internet

Penn Program in Environmental Humanities Lab #DataRefuge:

"In conversation with many partners, such as you, we can build refuge for federal climate and environmental data vulnerable under an administration that denies the fact of ongoing climate change. We are committed to fact-based arguments, and #DataRefuge works to preserve the facts we all need."

"DataRefuge acknowledges--and in fact draws attention to--the fact that there are no guarantees of perfectly safe information. But there are ways that we can create safe and trustworthy copies. DataRefuge is thus also a project to develop the best methods, practices, and protocols to do so."

Can This Marriage Be Saved? - The New York Times
"('Sitting here for six hours you just know what it’s like to be married to him,' Coché muttered to me once, out of earshot of the offending spouse)"
"Gradually, with industrialization and the movement of jobs outside the home, love replaced communal economic imperatives as the glue between husbands and wives, striking two blows to the institution. First, romantic love isn’t known for its long-lasting adhesive properties; and second, no one is as deeply invested in a marriage as the two people in it.

"The group is something of an answer to the latter problem, Coché says — the modern equivalent perhaps of the village that Michael Vincent Miller ... depicts ...: What would it be like, he writes, 'if as in the Puritan villages of old, representatives from the larger community were to step in, calm the two down, stress the larger social importance of their well-being and offer support and help by redirecting the couple’s energies away from mutilating each other toward something more cooperative.'"
"'Causing the right amount of trouble is an art form.'”

On Marrying the Wrong Person | The Book of Life
One: We don't understand ourselves
Two: We don't understand other people
Three: We aren't used to being happy
Four: Being single is so awful
Five: Instinct has too much prestige
Six: We don't go to Schools of Love
Seven: We want to freeze happiness
Eight: We believe we are special
Nine: We want to stop thinking about Love

From Two: "We don’t see this as a picture of someone who has no nostrils, eight strands of hair and no eyelashes. Without even noticing that we are doing it, we fill in the missing parts. Our brains are primed to take tiny visual hints and construct entire figures from them – and we do the same when it comes to the character of our prospective spouse. We are – much more than we give ourselves credit for, and to our great cost – inveterate artists of elaboration. The level of knowledge we need for a marriage to work is higher than our society is prepared to countenance, recognise and accommodate for – and therefore our social practices around getting married are deeply wrong."
From Nine: "there is as much doubt, hope, fear, rejection and betrayal in a marriage as there is in single life. It’s only from the outside that a marriage looks peaceful, uneventful and nicely boring."  tip  list  life  relationship  marriage  commitment  emotion  neurosis  partner  couple  mismatch  pessimism  self-esteem  self-help  psychology  romanticism  romance  medieval  illusion  intimacy  avoidance  character  writing  perfectionism  projection  personality  happiness  community  kibbutz  sex  loneliness  2010s  15th_century  20th_century  21st_century  rational  business  instinct  impressionism  art  impermanence  trauma  youtube  the_school_of_life  the_book_of_life  video

Why I Love Marilynne Robinson : The New Yorker
"'On some impulse, plain exuberance, I suppose, the fellow jumped up and caught hold of a branch, and a storm of luminous water came pouring down on the two of them, and they laughed and took off running, the girl sweeping water off her hair and her dress as if she were a little bit disgusted, but she wasn’t. It was a beautiful thing to see, like something from a myth. I don’t know why I thought of that now, except perhaps because it is easy to believe in such moments that water was made primarily for blessing, and only secondarily for growing vegetables or doing the wash.'
"Robinson discusses her conviction that the capacity to make imaginative connections with other people, familiar and foreign, is the basis of community"

What does a General Assembly do? « Disaster Notes
"'There’s no ideal form of action. What’s essential is that action assume a certain form, that it give rise to a form instead of having one imposed on it... As for deciding on actions, the principle could be as follows: each person should do their own reconnaissance, the information would then be put together, and the decision will occur to us rather than being made by us. The circulation of knowledge cancels hierarchy; it equalizes by raising up.'"
