Esto es inconcebible... Una realidad absurda a los ojos de todos y con la complicidad de todos los gobiernos. Es muy triste ese informe y pensar en la pobreza de las mujeres de los países tercermundistas, que la mayoría de las veces son madres solteras y que ellas solas deben hacerse cargo de sus hijos... Qué futuro nos espera?

Right wing party is gouverning again in Argentina and I've been thinking a lot these days about Memefest 2012. Debt is again in the center of the scene, after 12 years. Luckily we have more tools to understand what's going on and to fight against neoliberalism.

I am sorry to hear about your Country Ivan, I have been following the election. I would be interested to work more on campaigns with you and Mariano. Especially using food as a medium- I think it has really a lot of potential. We should do something together again. Hugs, Oliver

Here is a great session on institutional critique. It is focused on art, but this stuff can be very well used for non art institutions as well. Its really important stuff for a imaginative process of redirecting communication/design and art.

"A few years ago, I was being shown around a large, very technologically advanced university in Asia by its proud president. As befitted so eminent a personage, he was flanked by two burly young minders in black suits and shades, who for all I knew were carrying Kalashnikovs under their jackets. Having waxed lyrical about his gleaming new business school and state-of-the-art institute for management studies, the president paused to permit me a few words of fulsome praise. I remarked instead that there seemed to be no critical studies of any kind on his campus. He looked at me bemusedly, as though I had asked him how many Ph.D.’s in pole dancing they awarded each year, and replied rather stiffly "Your comment will be noted." He then took a small piece of cutting-edge technology out of his pocket, flicked it open and spoke a few curt words of Korean into it, probably "Kill him.""

Economist Paul Mason's blockbuster manifesto Postcapitalism suggests that markets just can't organize products whose major input isn't labor or material, but information, and that means that, for the first time in history, it's conceivable that we can have a society based on abundance.

Books I like

Stephen is thankful he bought the book "Indebted To Intervene critical lessons in debt, communication, art & theoretical practice by Oliver Vodeb and Nikola Janovic Kolenc". Stephen thinks Indebted To Intervene is a unique and refreshing book that helps to add more elements of thinking and consideration on important topics. And holds memories of Stephen as a University student during the memefest debt theme.

Brisbane Zines are becoming more interesting to Stephen as he explores more options and possibilities for sustainable growth and community networks.
