What could come out of this:
    * associate individuals (Profs/researchers) with institutions/departments
    * collect syllabae ("reading lists") and cross-associate ("who reads what", "what is canonical", "what is understudied?", etc)
    * serve to connect and make people working/interested in similar directions become aware of each other, and meet
    * [...]

Different approaches to develop this:
    * "who teaches this?":
        Norbert Wiener, Ted Nelson, Alexander Bogdanov, ...
    * where to study:
        complex systems, tektology, systems theory, ...
    * traverse cool conf/events academics and investigate where they come from:
        CCC hacker events, HKW Campus, [...]
    * just google a bunch of what is already found together ("query expansion"):
        * "Who's who in Media Research":
        * [...]

* i think the problem is that there is not a bridge and link between people that are doing valuable research within institutes and academia and the massive public. I believe that there is no need to do MEDIA RESEARCH or PRESS research, but
there is a need  to think and reflect HOW to bridge the gap between people who watch television and people who are not obedient in terms of following the mass public opinion. I think this is the real challenge.
Why I am saying this? In AMsterdam I have done internship at the best globally leading research institute - TNI - but they didn't have the proper link in networking the wider public opinion within EU. I think if they could accomplish this, a lot would be done.


Sort this! <---- #TODO

<--------------------------------- (new)

If unsure where in above's soft categories, add new stuff here: 
    * "New Babylon" (Constant Nieuwenhuys):
    * "Project Sigma" (Alexander Trocchi):
    * mitX "micromasters":
    * international network for urban research and action 
    * Research Center for Proxy Politics
    * AURA: Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene
    * KIT Karlsruhe:
        specifically , via friend: "No single "critical engineer" can cover all consequences of technological progress - such as: political, economical, social and  other implications. My favorite science-fiction novels cover social and/or political topics as well. Indeed in Germany there is an institute covering these topics and reserching: Institut fuer Technikfolgenabschaetzung. Which means there is an Institude for an estimation of possible results concerning the society, when we apply or develop new technologies."
    * north Italy thing Paul mentioned .... +cumbia knows?
    * German uni where you can graduate / phd from "hacking" ?
    * "Scott Page is the Leonid Hurwicz Collegiate Professor of Complex Systems, Political Science, and Economics at the University of Michigan and an external faculty member at the Santa Fe Institute"
    * @Brussels/BE
    * Collected research by Brian Holmes on crisis theory and social change
    * [para-academic]. madrid
    * Philadelphia Institute for Advanced Studies ?
    * ???
    * HumLab (Umea)
    * The Public School (Berlin)
    • The Slow University (Warzaw)
    * ? Stuttgart Computational Design
    * The New Centre for Research & Practice:
        example event see
        "The New Centre for Research & Practice is conceived upon the idea that the space of knowledge is a laboratory for navigating the links between thought and action. Our pedagogical approach bootstraps the conventional role of the Arts and Sciences to construct new forms of research and practice alongside, within, and between the existing disciplines and technologies. The New Centre’s aim is a constructivist one, to assemble an environment, both virtual and actual, that inspires our members to invent alternate understandings that can be put into collective practice."
    * "The event will take place at Pratt Institute (Manhattan Campus), The New School for Social Research, and e-flux."
    * Madrid cooperative of sociology researchers (work) <david.serrano
    * Interface cultures, @Linz/AT  
    * "CIF" @ Madrid +edu +cumbia:
        cooking <-> education ("formation") + theory + making + "pluriversity" + ...
        starts in early 2017 (?)
        metrics driven (?) has info
