 Google Earth - Virtual Earth - World Wind or 2D vs. 3D or depth of blind spots
picture picture 23 Feb 2007 @ 17:36
2-D or 3-D is the central question not just for Google, but for our ways to communicate, maybe call it "flat" or "deep". At the bookfair UNESCO introduced with Google new developments for education. What that means and where the downsides are remains to be seen... This contribution explores also a cognitive deep-space or panorama.  More >

 Where, how large, and flat is Africa? - or is there space for Peace/Coexistence?
picture picture picture 22 Feb 2007 @ 15:23
There is mauch confusion in modern society about maps and models, truth and fidelity, plans and reality. With the opening question "How large and where is Africa" some central questions about comparability and coherence need to be answered, as we confuse scales, proportions consequences. This is dangerous in real life, but worth when we have to act on larger scales. This piece is about the Millennium Development Goals, and global Education and Economic Programmes, but also about numbers and scales. Recommended are theses sites: Earth Ignorance and Earth Cultural Imperialism.
The central question is not only if Africa is on the map, but are the Oceans and the Poles or other regions like Europe fairly represented on the map.
Why? Because if there is not truth and equal-area relation be can get wrong pictures, wrong ideas, and maybe even wrong impressions about climate-change modelling or desertification - and how such living conditions are central to war and peace.  More >

 The Predicament of Mankind - The Problematique & Hasan Ozbekhan
picture 16 Feb 2007 @ 19:52
This is not only an eulogy for Hasan Ozbekhan, but a revisit of the early days of the Club of Rome, the "Methodenstreit", and what was lost when scientists just go for one "solution", like just for prospective, and not just for partivciĆ¼pative and normative futures. It is also about Information Management and stakeholder participation, dialog- and decision cultures....  More >

 Matters of Consequences & Orienting Generalisations & Playing for Life
picture picture 2 Feb 2007 @ 05:26
What does realy matter? how can we see not jsut fragement but things as a whole and in perspective? how can we get orienting generalisations play-like, not as serious but making sense and fun?
The articel introduces the work of Cop MacDonald and should start with his Wisdom Series, but all is hard to fit into a frame, even very large frame as this blog entry.  More >

 Earth Negligence - a way beyond 2006 ?
picture picture 31 Dec 2006 @ 19:06
Whole Earth Negligence ? Whole System Negligence ? - or just Ignorance and Apathy ??
It took me some time to realise the terms I use, like Ignorance and Apathy are too shallow. More to come ...
Do we avoid the frame, the big picture and instead focus on the smallest detail and close our eyes? - calling everything beyond our direct "touch" non-existent ? or not "relevant"??  More >

This is Heiner Benking's News Log, a private-public diary presenting events, symposia and happenings in Berlin and elsewhere - my farings, foci, issues and concerns.

PLEASE CONSIDER THIS PERSONAL BLOG an ARTISTIC and PERFORMATIVE MEDIA INTERVENTION !

The Log links to my work and interests and presents issues and special concern of maybe a very small group of "concerned, engaged generalist" - a Global Interest Group (GIG). This needs to be seen in contrast to the ubiquitous Specialized Interest Groups (SIGs), the "scientific" approach to organize subject areas and specialization and standardization and harmonization! of means, nomenclatures, and modes of thinking. My favorite stories in the WHOLENESS SEMINAR include:
BELA BANATHY: "GENESIS
OF GENERAL SYSTEMS THEORY"
and "IVAN HAVEL: Longing for Unified Knowledge" where a "specialist" runs into the founding session of the early foundations General Systems, mumbling "this is not my field" or where Ivan M. Havel expresses his search for other kinds of knowledge.
As a starter I also recommend to check my MINDPRINT site, where we add the need for HANDPRINTS and MINDPRINTS, as FOOTPRINTS are good to visualize and communicate numbers, densities or consumption per area, but are not sufficient to negotiate and "harmonize" across domains and communicate gains in different cultures, technologies, times,... in short: incompatible but relevant information and our work on dialog, peace, policy-making, and multi-modal, faceted issues and consequences.
What am I? This is a "well-packed" question for which I have not the or a single answer. Some called me an in-betweener, go-getter, facilitator, hub, marvel-hero, trim-tab, bricoleur, bricoleers??? - career designeer, .... Some even "hank" which I disliked or Story which I liked very much !!
I have no single answer as I feel we need to walk the talk and sing and dance Life ! in spectra and fields in multiple embodied spaces.
To nebulous an answer? I am sorry but I do not go for overclaims and oversimplifications, under-complex and over-simplistic approaches with clan-think mindsets about real issues in clear contexts!
