Joseph Pine: What consumers want
So basically this talk is another step in the ongoing endeavor to conquer the customer's heart, as if we're being thrown 20-30-40 years into the past and the notions of Environment, Ecology, Sustainability never came into being. Forget it. Let's just figure out more ways to sell, and better illustrate it as if this a natural, inevitable continutation of the past. Hoeever, for people who desire a realty check, see Naomi Klein's talk on http://www.ted.com/talks/naomi_klein_addicted_to_risk.html and other connected-to-the-real-world talks.

Stewart Brand: What squatter cities can teach us
Naomi Klein: The Shock Doctrine - The Rise of the Disaster Capitalism is the book that explains very clearly everything that happened in the last 4-5 decades, from south america to Iraq and more, shedding new light on how is possible for people like Brand to see beauty in the miserable life of those who were driven off their forefathers land and traditional occupations into the un-human cities by the big players of globalization, with the generous aid of US government.

Stewart Brand: The Long Now
how low can one get? having done with the environment and out of praise to the growing urban population (see other talks by this man), or simply because of sheer boredom, he seeks to rob another nature asset and spend tons of $$$ on a stupid, useless, megalomanic idea that no one will be interesed in. what a useless man.

Stewart Brand: What squatter cities can teach us
dangerous and scary. a white rich man speaking in a patronizing way to an audience of white rich people of the "they actually have aesthetics!" poor, deprived, forced to improvise their living from day to day masses of the world who were driven off their land and into the cities by the globalized and the rich of his kind. and he even has the nerve to suggest this all is a good thing both fot the planet and its humans.
