Comparing the Uncomparable
After reading the two articles required to write this blog promt i came to the conclusion that i found really no relationships between the two articles. The fab lab article was very interesting to me so i will give my feelings on it. I think that the way the class shaped itsself contrary to how it was preplanned is quite funny. i know personally that i would take a class like that and the fact that they basically taught themselves and eachother was inovative. I know from experiance that sometimes learning from a peer is more effictive. What i also found interesting was that the inner city kids were also tackeling all the equiptment. Is this the new way of the future? students teaching themselves then teaching peers. Its alsmot like survival of the fittest in a way. People are learning what they need to know and passing it down so others can "survive" as well and keep passing information down. They also talked about machines making machines. I think that his is a dangerous concept personally. When machines can reproduce and pass knoledge on to one another can completly become a technopoly. but what i did like about the machines making machines is that its an efficient way to produce something. This can hurt the economy by eliminating jobs. Things will become so easy to "print" or produce that people will become the new typwriter, obsoleet.
