OpenDoTT (Open Design of Trusted Things) "is a PhD programme* to explore how to build a more open, secure, and trustworthy Internet of Things". I have moved in 2019 to Dundee to work at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and relocated later to Berlin to work at the Mozilla Foundation. The whole project has migrated from the University of Dundee to Northumbria University in June 2020(\).
My research topic in the project is (waste prevention in) "smart cities". I am documenting in this blog what I am reading, learning and discovering as I go deeper into my research. I will also maintain a list of links with the opendott tag in my infinite bookmark collection.
Industrial production unaccounted for its externalities is akin to populism, in the worst meaning. Immediate results in detriment of future conditions.
What happens to things after they are made, sold and used? Should we talk of an afterlife of things? Or are they eternal (while they are 'things')?
