字幕表 動画を再生する 英語字幕をプリント Great to be back to this side of the world I'm gonna explain a little bit of myself where I came from I was born in Hong Kong, and grew up in Macau and then my family decided I need to get some western education then we went to the States and I got undergraduate degrees, I studied biology I thought I was gonna be a doctor like a lot of Asians, you knows, kids Umm, that didn't happen, I failed miserably and my parents, my mom just really disappointed, so then I shift, I decided I'm gonna study design and architecture, and while I was there, I did my thesis part of my thesis was, I was looking at industrial revolution and aftermath of industrila revolution and I've noticed that we've all know by now what happened before and afterwards you know, producing, mass production, machine lines we were producing things over and over and over again cookie cutter effect, and that affected our office and environment and our way of working and also affected our schools, and the way we teach our children we were repeating the same things over and over and over again so I started asking myself well, the change is imminent, we have to do something about it but how? where do we start? so after I graduated, I started to looking into ways of incorporating these changes to the way we work the way we study, the way you live and then I came up with these four shifts, four changes and the first one was, in the pre-industrial revolution age mass production, what do we shift? and think about mass customization give them the tools, the methods and each one of you will produce something different instead of having this cookie cutting method of producing the same thing over and over again why don't we start changing our mentality instead of so focus into the result into the end product; why don't we think about the process how we think about the journey making things what do we shift? let's just stop thinking about this top-down approach this top-down hierarchy where we have a boss, where we have workers, and we have the lower rank, why if we all are equal? professors, students, employees, boss why if we are all equal? that would be ideal and why don't we shift from being so formal all the time and just having a really informal environment where we could all work together, we can all study together, where we can have a surprise discovery where serendipity can occur and so I really want to apply this philosophy somewhere in 2010 I had the opportunity to start up MOB-Maker Of Barcelona I'll explain to you the making of it so this is my definition of what MOB is and MOB is a thousand square meter of pure goodness plus a commmunity of creative geeks the innovative hipsters and the business savvy so I'm trying to mix things up, you know, all three groups together in the same space so when I'm talking about the creative geeks, I'm talking about designers, artists, innovative hipsters, hackers, inventors, business savys, entrepreneurs so what is a maker? for me a maker is self-sufficient, someone that is passionately driven fully capable and highly motivated so I'm not just talking about people making things, making products, no, anyone here is a maker shift of mentality, everyone is capable so for us, maker is someone who can make things happen for themselves so that is basically everybody, right? so this is my prototype of a maker, that's teeth, it's fiesty we have a facility, we have a thousand square meters and then inside we have co-working, class rooms and we have invent spaces so this is some of the pictures of our makers hard at work these are our students, sometimes they are not so hard at work, but they are in the same space with the professionals this is our caged meeting room, very informal here is the lounge and he's working very hard we also want to provide tools, and these tools could be literal tools, places where people can make stuffs we're actually in the middle of makers' space where we have digital fabrications sewing machines, vinyl cutters, where people can actually produce we want to provide contents so we have a lot of workshops exhibitions, hackerthons, performances, theatres, so this is our event walls we list all our activities we do during the month some of the examples of exhibition we have done, we do start up launch party, hackerthons where people get together and hack things our supermarkets where we sell Barcelona desin products showcasing our maker design concerts, and this is a project that is in the making where we are collaborating with another organiation what we are trying to do is we are trying to match up improbable occurences so we are trying to match up hackers and designers and see what can be produced within these two marriages we'll see how that goes we also collaborate a lot with external organizations, Firefox, with Etsy, to run their events and finally the most important part is the creative community we are very proud to have over 120 members within this first year of operation we have about 50 percent local people and 50 percent of international we push very hard to create an environment where professional and students are in the same space so this is our crowds and top of this 120 sort of in house members we also have over 3000 virtual ones so we are trying to build up this community where people can come to work together a meet up space, they can do project together and they can collaborate so, how do we grow a creative community I'm gonna give you some instruction, some of the experiences I've learned so far in this year and an half the person who runs this creative community is the one you're gonna be the heart and soul of this community, the aura, it's gonna be felt you gonna be heard everywhere, so you better be passionate about what you do you have to actively recruit all those members, those movers and shakers in this community all those people that are interested to participate include them in this part of community you're going to reach out, there are tons and tons of people doing amazing things in this city I'm sure not just in Taipei, I'm sure across the ocean, across the other countries find these people, bring them in connect, connect corporation, you would think that they would never listen to individual, small communities but grow your community and they would want to hear your voice give incentive, to your members to start their own initiatives it's very important, because they will provide the contents for your community grow your community through external and internal events what we talk about earlier so whether it's concert for your internal members or big events like hackerthons where you invite corporations these are your contents, sort of like your food for your community and it's very important family matters, your members are gonna be your families and they will be your voices, and if you treat them right, they are goonna be loving you they are gonna be telling everyone about it and your community will grow you gotta work it, this isn't a free ride you are gonna work it, your workers are your families, remember? and you are gonna promote it, talk it up, tell other people about your members oh, have you heard so and so, he's amazing and do you know so and so, he's just so fantastic and finally, I think there's another point you need to communicate, if you are doing great things and you are not talkinng about it then it's kind of a loss case tell other people, do a Facebook campagin do a wonderful website, tell the entire world the content of your members and community and you gotta be the pimp, I don't know if this is translating right you have to connect people, put people together within the community and outside the community this is 99.9 percent of my job at MOB becuase without this kind of interaction, you community isn't gonna grow collaboration is the key so, how do we apply this in a larger scale? like I said earlier, there're tons of creative, talented people, all over the city but they are all kind of fragment over the place and they don't really talk to each other what if we start appling this community, what if we just start growing this community all over the place start making connections between them and if you apply this in the city level, neighborhood level, in the global level you can actually connect to the whole world and that's pretty amazing, and if you guys build one, and we start communicating with you guys you gonna have a linke between Barcelona and Taipei and that's pretty cool so, if we go back to the shift philosophy we talked about earlier that was just our sort of way of working are we really want to apply this methology not only at MOB not only at the facility what if we can apply this in another project so we got very lucky this year, we were working with the city government of Barcelona and it's a very initial, we just started about couple weeks ago but we wanted to regenerate the city, the neighborhood at MOB and we said, well, how do we approach this, we are not urban designers; I study architecture 146 00:11:59,627 --> 00:12:01,492 I don't know anything about urban planning so, we said, why don't we tab into the resource why don't we talk to our MOB members, we have 120 of them to so what we can do so we got everyone together, and we sort of have a brainstorming session and we came up with this idea; we brought mathematicists, we brought our physicists in, we have hackers, designers we all started talking about how to approach this project and we decided that we wanted an algorithm; we wanted to provide a tool, not the final product, but sort of a formula... on how to approach the design of the city we said we were goonna design the city through an organic, a fluid, a human-centered way when you see this very short video, we are trying to incorporate the parameter, the open data that we get from the city so everytime, say, for example, someone opens a shop, that map will alter instantly and that's a live organism that's being changed depending on what information is being applied on and so we want to use this tool, not just for Barcelona, not just for a particular place and time we want to be able to see the changes in a very dynamic way so the urban planners, designers, archetectects and anyone else who want to use this tools to rethink about what the future of this city is like can use it it's very excited for us to start this project within the city and it's very interesting for us to see the city has intrest and initiatives like this so, to go back to the question we know about changes are about to happen the question is "what's next?"
