((( how I crashed jvea / Alan invites )))
but yesterday I started reading 🔗hacking-housing to Alan, after first sentence
        "we don't know the building codes/laws so we can't hack them"
he says:
        "so go and read them!"
not good enough!
        lack of platforms
        lack of systems
and generally
        lack of adequate/appropriate technology ground-up technology for ground-up politics

how would one find "SQEK"?
        g: "squatting research" ??
        should we be forced to pay SEO keywords?
        discoverability!

-----------------------------------------------------------

BUT ANYWAY,

so alan already sketched 2 vectors

    1) "right to city" / defending / conservative?

    2) vs "exodus" / "back to the land"
        b.fuller, technology, "world systems", hippies, etc

i'm the ghost rider for #2

-------------------------------

I WILL ARGUE
WE NEED MORE SYSTEMATICS, "OFF THE SHELF" NON-MAINSTREAM LIFESTYLE SOLUTIONS

Conditions for #1 are not there
but also conditions for #2 are not there (RIP hippies 1972)

OF COURSE AT THE END, QUESTION IS ALWAYS,
WHAT IS THE POINT?

#1 is TOO VOLATILE
I seriously pose the question whether these spaces
        aren't just about PURE SURVIVAL?
        and not even that 
because with
        a clear trend of NEOLIBERAL successes (healthcare systems dissasembly, etc)
        ANTHROPOCENE / ecocide
        with AUTONOMISED WEAPONISED AGENTS
i believe enabling some unconsequential "creativity" (as per the colleagues before) just doesn't cut it

loosing energy
        "negotiation" and "right to the city"

eh
        you get a space
        they even pay for the floor
        but then you can't smoke inside anymore
                 you get co-opted

If you'll say these spaces are "adequate", then it's possibly either
        * not appearant or not showing itself
        * not replicable

at best
        delimited "islands of freedom" via participation in reproduction of our current society
or again
        (looking at political trends), not even that
        

looking fwd to read the book
ofc,
        as i understand it's an anthology
        we are kind of documenting these pieces
        and we need a systemic approach, "A NEW DEFAULT"
        buillt on top of this, maybe "DESIGN PATTERNS"
because
        you find yourself in society
        "right to city" does not scale

-----------------------------------------------------

READING TOTALISM / HACKING HOUSING FOR 60 sec:
    🔗hacking-housing

-----------------------------------------------------

END ON POSITIVE NOTE #1

"I'd like to end on a positive note"
        MADRID + BARCELONA HAVE NEW COOL MAYORS
        so maybe "right to city" has a chance?
On the other hand
        in the major league
        the recent outcome of SYRIZA and Greece as a "protectorate"
        "the right to a country"

i think we need new strategies.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

OK RETRY POSITIVE NOTE

"manifesto is nothing without a mechanism"

CAN THERE BE A NEW LOGIC OF CITIES?
        formation mechanism not only "criticaly"
        of non-replicable "take a chance on a situation"
but
        constructively of a possibility for NEW URBANISM
        beyond "oh nice new space

alter lifetsyles should be like pot smoking
"legal compatible" but also "doesn't need to be"

THE TOTALISM DESIGN IS TO OFFER AN ENTRY TICKET TO THE UTOPIA FOR 1000€:
    we might be wrong but for how much?
    can you engineer a new type of city?
    and what follows when this has a proof (as being)?

we are HACKERS and WE ARE HERE TO FUCK WITH YOUR ROBOTS
