Thanks(for)giving - A Seasonal Dining Experiment

As many of you know, in the past few months I have been studying the ins and outs of professional cookery at the Institute of Culinary Education. As we round the midway point, I have been thinking hard about what I'd like my design practice to evolve into post-graduation. To inspire possible answers, I am embarking on a series of experiments to explore the effects of food on social interaction. Event Format These dinners will be a little different from your typical sit-and-eat dining experience. While I can't promise predictability, what I can promise is a memorable evening of interacting in new and interesting ways with friends from the Orbital community. And of course, an abundance of tasty food made by yours truly. 7:00pm - Welcome and Freeform Mingling! 7:30pm - Sit-Down Dinner and Interactive Experiment begins (don't be late!) BYOB—This will allow me to focus on delivering the best possible food experience. (At least, until I take the wine course.) Theme The theme of this upcoming dinner will be... Thanksgiving! With a twist. If you have a personal favorite seasonal side dish, please tell me what it is. Your answers will inform certain aspects of the meal, which I won't reveal until dinner is served. Hope to see you there! FAQ May I bring a friend? Yes! Please have them purchase a ticket as well, so I can keep track of attendees as well as the amount of food to make. What does the ticket price cover? The ticket price covers the cost of ingredients and transportation, with a bit of padding for costing errors/price fluctuation. I source the majority of my ingredients from local producers committed to sustainabile growing methods and humane animal husbandry practices. The goal isn't to turn a profit, however if there is money left over, it will be donated to the unofficial Orbital Drinks Fund for the all-important purpose of fueling future merriment. I have a food allergy/dietary limitations. Inform me via the registration form and I will ensure that everyone leaves the dinner in healthy good cheer. :)

Adhocracy is a flexible, adaptable and informal form of organization that is defined by a lack of formal structure. It operates in an opposite fashion to a bureaucracy. The term was coined by Warren Bennis in his 1968 book The Temporary Society, later popularized in 1970 by Alvin Toffler in Future Shock, and has since become often used in the theory of management of organizations (particularly online organizations). The concept has been further developed by academics such as Henry Mintzberg. Adhocracy is characterized by an adaptive, creative and flexible integrative behavior based on non-permanence and spontaneity. It is believed that these characteristics allow adhocracy to respond faster than traditional bureaucratic organizations while being more open to new ideas.

except maybe “this process is expense….needs a strong community”

brain or soul…soul or brain
itsmisscs 03:21:11
so tough
itsmisscs 03:21:20
dzn 03:33:19
either soul or cognition
dzn 03:34:02
not a big fan of brain being a special body part
itsmisscs 03:34:30
yeah i hear you on that
itsmisscs 03:34:35
cognition is nice but lots of typing
itsmisscs 03:34:41
soul is simple
dzn 03:34:47
itsmisscs 03:34:57
also denotes a rawer space
dzn 03:35:05
also, I like the ring of it too
dzn 03:35:22
I vote for soul!
itsmisscs 03:35:56
cool. then we continue forward as it is named.

the ease of the api may be what tips me over to use one as my own personal evernote
itsmisscs 03:37:43
shall see. i really like it for our stuff. it lends itself quite well. it is nice to have text, but the chia hua post of your screen shots worked really well to
itsmisscs 03:38:03
makes the nicest shared space
itsmisscs 03:38:26
it doesn’t allow pdf uploads. i need to check if it is a setting or by design.
dzn 03:38:34
the screenshots work surprisingly well
dzn 03:38:49
That’s odd that it doesn’t allow pdf update
itsmisscs 03:39:37
yeah. images work well. these are from my notes

2017-09-11 Alex Pentland WCIT Talk

We got to hear Sandy Pentland talk. He opened WCIT festival. He spoke about his social bridges metrics. The core of it states that as diversity drops, so does economics of an area”. I think about New York, housing, our work, the stories from our experimental summer. “This will be great for our project.” [IMG_3842][IMG_3840][IMG_3843][IMG_3841]

What we do - Participation

The meme that paralysed the administration [image] In March 2014, students in the Sunflower movement occupied the Parliament for 22 days. The result has introduced a giant leap in civic participation in Taiwan. Hundreds of g0v (gov-zero) hacktivists built real-time ICT systems for coordinating supplies, live-streaming, transcription, and translation — broadcasting the demonstration to half a million people on the street and millions more online. They represented the first generation to spe...

>Uber and Airbnb are hot topics, but other public issues — such as judicial reform, land-use planning, and cultural policy — don’t get much coverage. The long-form explanations won’t fit into mainstream TV and newspapers, and there are no angle for sensational commentaries.

>So by late 2015, ex-occupiers created new media channels, with the same non-profit, open-source, crowd-based techniques from the Sunflower movement.

take this idea of crowdsourcing concerns for districts
itsmisscs 04:02:28
the democracy as a game section of that post is +++ 💛
dzn 04:36:24
briefly went over. I like!! Was thinking of another way that this could be a game
dzn 04:36:33
chat later..
dzn 04:37:13
for now.. I am going over the g0v and PDIS parts
itsmisscs 04:39:02
okay. i’m in vtaiwan/lu chai hua and watchout
itsmisscs 05:00:15
@darshana what do you think about using ugly cat story to underscore the time we spent there a bit further up…something along the lines “had such a rousing conversation that Ugly, the office cat who likes to be a master of his space, came contribute his story about the two cats sharing his space…
dzn 05:00:45
lol. That might work
dzn 05:01:09
put in what you feel like, then we can switch spots and see what it sounds like
itsmisscs 05:01:26
then it can end on a project which is a nice tie to the opening of the following paragraph
itsmisscs 05:02:09
i still vote to cut ugly cat 😜
but i think you are right that we don’t know what angle we will take to tell the story. infusing ugly here fits the spirit of travel/story
itsmisscs 05:02:48
but i’ll see if this reads better than current placement at the end
dzn 05:06:47
it adds a some color to that section
dzn 05:07:02
we don’t have much personal stuff there the way it stood before
dzn 05:07:14
we don’t have to mention the master of this space part if that sounds weird
itsmisscs 05:07:39
ah. maybe that’s what tripping it up. didn’t think about that until you mentioned it
dzn 05:07:44
we can just leave it at, we visited the team and Ugly cat at…
itsmisscs 05:07:57
i always saw that as the descriptor
dzn 05:08:09
dzn 05:08:14
q to you ---
dzn 05:08:28
does the g0v hackathon enforce open source??
dzn 05:08:42
as in, do all projects HAVE to be opensource
itsmisscs 05:09:22
they clear that up in the video. i believe that is the one thing they ask but you don’t have to
itsmisscs 05:09:31
i don’t remember clearly, sorry
dzn 05:09:47
they say that about projects that are funded through OCF
dzn 05:09:54
that they have to be open source
dzn 05:10:02
I didn’t think they mentioned hackathon projects
itsmisscs 05:10:02
mmm also about g0v projects
itsmisscs 05:10:07
let me check through notes
dzn 05:10:12
I’ll look at the video
dzn 05:10:22
have to do it any case for Kirby’s quote
itsmisscs 05:12:23
kirby’s is the last one of the second video
itsmisscs 05:13:26
i think we shoud keep for the next couple months, especially if we decide to do patreon and release videos. if we invite ourselves to the team we can @mention each other and more effectively communicate over videos, i feel.
itsmisscs 05:13:39
at least until we get though reviewing and making clips of all the taiwan footage
itsmisscs 05:14:42
ipa says

> “the key reason behind the growth of the community is that we encourage everyone uses the open source license”
itsmisscs 05:15:47
encourage but don’t mandate 🙂
itsmisscs 05:16:26
part 2 video. sometimes for my notes, you need to go forward a bit.
dzn 05:22:37
I like that!! fits really well with what we are trying to say
dzn 05:22:44
(the ipa quote)
dzn 05:23:11
would be good to keep but maybe we can downgrade
itsmisscs 05:30:46
we have already run out of space
itsmisscs 05:31:18
we need to cut down the clips. i think it would be helpful for that first stage..reviewing…marking the spots. then we can make the clips and put them somewhere else for now
itsmisscs 05:31:42
we can get way more hosted space and just mount it like a dropbox folder
itsmisscs 06:14:52


Appreciating <|@ProPublica>'s choice to embrace "crowd-powered" as a phrase for journalism that relies upon collaboration with audience.

I like!! I’m going to retweet on talkto. hehe

I think compressing the 4K videos is another option. The Jacklyn Tsai videos alone are 30GB!!
itsmisscs 06:18:56
yeah they are huge
itsmisscs 06:19:01
that’s totally right
dzn 06:19:15
it’s really 2 sets that are occupying all the space
itsmisscs 06:19:31
the 4k video sets hehe
dzn 06:19:35
yeah 🙂
itsmisscs 06:19:45
but it is so much better footage
itsmisscs 06:19:53
compressing is a great idea
itsmisscs 06:20:46
for the g0v article, i think reviewing the mglee and ttcat videos will be useful
dzn 06:21:30
for sure!! for the next set of articles we should review all of the videos
itsmisscs 06:24:08
JT video, too….yeah, you are right, all of them
