From Flaneur to Panneur

What defines the 21st century individual? In the 19th century, flaneurs leisurely walked the arcades of their cities and saw what they could see. In the 20th century, from high-rise buildings voyuers utilized cameras or binoculars to peer into the lives of others from afar. In "From Flaneur to Panneur" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 110, architect and thinker Antoine Vaxelaire proposes that we, citizens of the new millenium, are panneurs or those who pan the surface of the earth (or in our case, the internet), never going too deep, for information. We stuff our heads like Christmas turkeys with perhaps needless information, always moving forward, never looking back, and remaining always in the now. One has to wonder, is this good, bad, or just

The Information of Space

Miles describes some projects that have been done to create AI systems which mimic animal behaviour.

Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information

"It's a little bit like Google Street View, it's the same idea ...with radiation." From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Pieter Franken Presents Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information. In our technologically saturated age, it is hypothetically easy to share data instantaneously with others. After the Tohoku Earthquake, Pieter and what would eventually become the Team realized that information about the radiation levels couldn’t be spread as it didin’t exist. After connecting to minds, companies, and volunteers – both in Japan and abroad– an open-source system was developed that could quickly collect, record, and share radiation level information.
