Broken Umbrella (photo by Lauren Manning and Veronica Acosta)To assemble the "Masterpieces of Everyday New York" which currently fill the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons The New School for Design, curators Margot Bouman and Radhika Subramaniam asked their colleagues to select objects that brought their city to life.

Each faculty member contributed a text on their choice, some personal, some academic. In the spare, concrete-floored gall ... Read More →

The sharing economy: a whole new way of living
Taskrabbit 010
TaskRabbit is a peer-to-peer marketplace for neighbourhood errands, such as shopping for groceries.In 2006, serial entrepreneur and investor Martín Varsavsky – inspired by a conviction that he could cloak the world in free Wi-Fi by encouraging people to share their home connections – founded Fon in Madrid.

Hyperloop
When the California “high speed” rail was approved, I was quite disappointed, as I know many others were too. How could it be that the home of Silicon Valley and JPL – doing incredible things like indexing all the world’s knowledge and putting rovers on Mars – would build a bullet train that is both one of the most expensive per mile and one of the slowest in the world? Note, I am hedging my statement slightly by saying “one of”. The head of the California high speed rail project called me to complain that it wasn’t the very slowest bullet train nor the very most expensive per mile.
