Sustainable urban mobility with "Kultur-Token" - Digitales Wien. Ein digitales Pilot- und Forschungsprojekt zur spielerischen Belohnung von klimafreundlichem Verhalten.

Sustainable urban mobility with "Kultur-Token" - Digitales Wien

Die Eindämmung des Corona-Virus schränkt sowohl das Mobilitätsverhalten, als auch das Kulturangebot ein. Daher wird die Testphase des Kultur-Token ausgesetzt und die App „Kultur-Token“ außer Betrieb genommen. Die Stadt Wien arbeitet am weltweit ersten Kultur-Token, dabei handelt es sich um: ein Pilotprojekt mit wissenschaftlicher Begleitung und Evaluierung.ein digitales Bonussystem, das mittels einer App umweltbewusstes Verhalten mit freiem Zugang zu Kulturveranstaltungen honoriert.eine digitale Gutschrift, die in Kultureinrichtungen eingelöst werden kann.

Future of packaging

A New Superpower in the Making: Awareness-Based Collective Action. Read the article in Spanish — in Traditional Chinese — in German — in Italian Three weeks ago, I posted some reflections on what we are learning from corona and climate action. Given that post’s wide circulation (150K+ views), I wanted to share a quick update. The concluding idea of the post — to launch an impromptu, global infrastructure for leaning into our current moment of disruption and letting this moment move us toward civilizational renewal — has quickly taken shape.

GAIA — Global Activation of Intention and Action — was implemented only twelve days after a small core team first came up with the idea. Within twelve days, 10,000+ had signed up for this free, four-month, online journey, and a global team of 100+ volunteers had begun co-creating, in five different languages, a suite of deep learning events for participants around the world. All of this happened without much planning and on a dime — even without any real budget. . · I don’t know how… This is our current moment. 1. 2.

TikTok users are trying to troll Trump's campaign by reserving tickets for Tulsa rally they'll never use

Mary Jo Laupp, a 51-year-old grandmother living in Fort Dodge, Iowa, appears to have helped led the charge on TikTok late last week when she posted a video encouraging people to go to Trump's website, register to attend the event -- and then not show up. "All of those of us that want to see this 19,000 seat auditorium barely filled or completely empty go reserve tickets now and leave him standing alone there on the stage," Laupp told her then-1,000 or so followers on TikTok, normally thought of a platform for dancing teenagers and not, necessarily, political action.

Laupp, who said she worked on Pete Buttigieg's campaign in Iowa last fall, told CNN she made the initial appeal upset that the rally was originally set to take place on Juneteenth, the holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. Laupp, who works at a high school and signed up to TikTok earlier this year, told CNN the video blew up overnight.

We could soon be able to store data inside artificially engineered DNA

New research shows it’s possible to store image files in solutions of common biological small molecules. The work is a toward molecular storage systems that could hold vast amounts of data in tiny spaces. DNA molecules are well known as carriers of huge amounts of biological information, and there is growing interest in using DNA in engineered data storage devices that can hold vastly more data than our current hard drives. But DNA isn’t the only game in town. The new study shows that it’s possible to store and retrieve data stored in artificial metabolomes—arrays of liquid mixtures containing sugars, amino acids, and other types of small molecules. The approach maps the ones the zeros of digital data to the presence or absence of particular molecules in solutions.
