This is an annotated list of links, with the potential for growth.
|Title||Why bother?||Category||Type of material/Author/Year|
|Dancing with systems||In my understanding, counterculture is about change. Systems Thinking provides a framework how to think about change. This article isn’t just a useful (and simple) introduction to Systems Thinking, it also carries an image which would be worth exploring further.||Systems Thinking||Article by Donella Meadows|
|Flyin' Cut Sleeves||New York City, gang culture, the 1970s. And in it Benjy (Benjamin Melendez), gang leader of the Ghetto Brothers, coming up with the idea that ‘Maybe we can channel all this negative energy into something very positive’. You hear things in here that may stay with you.||NYC||Documentary, Henry Chalfant and Rita Fecher, 1993/2009, 60 mins|
|Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York||This blog records how what’s special about New York vanishes, one article at a time. It can be read in many ways. One could potentially drown in nostalgia and sadness. Turning the thing on its head, one can see it as a source of inspiration how to make a city, a neighbourhood, a shop, a setting special.||NYC||Blog by Jeremiah Moss, started approx. in 2007|
My aim with this list is to
- link to materials/sites that have a high inspiration potential and are simple enough to make sense of without taking up classes in cultural anthropology
- include a brief description to help the reader gauge if that link is of interest to them.
