I used to blog but now simply keep this public clipboard with stuff I save to review, analyze, remix and write about later. Mostly interested in culture, cities, urbanism, the future and our role as global citizens. I'm also the founder of tribal.mx, a technology consulting firm working at the intersection of remix culture, interactive experiences, open hardware and modern cloud-based architectures, currently building FabSpaces.cc.
We’ve been talking about DIY Urbanism a lot over the last few weeks. This conversation has been mostly fuelled by our recently acquired fabrication skills. Here is one concrete project that we believe will be of interest to those sharing our passion for making cities better. We call this project Bikes in Motion. A very simple and cheap gadget that would allow people to gather data about the routes they follow and contribute them to an open repository that would encourage better policy making. Do you know of any such projects in your city?
