INFRA: Second Van | LANZA + PC
Found a candidate:
A white ~1985 Syncro (4x4) Dokka T3. ("Platform Chassis").
Is it worth betting 1000€ (500€ buy + 500€ fix + 2 months work) on the second van?
What would it be?:

No more alliances based on simulacra.
”Too many college radicals are two-timing punks. The only reason you should be in college is to destroy it.”
― Abbie Hoffman, Steal This Book
🔗alike page is good, but lacking.
* It needs to merge with 🔗intersub and even 🔗postmarket.
* Develop "Call-out culture" for anyone involved with, based on distinct re-processed set of values.
Who are really our closest organisations? Are we comrades, or are we "friends"?
OP: Position to win grants. | PC
* a semi-associated form / fiscal sponsor
* new push for 🔗grants
* roles development, capacity building
THEORY: Post-Postmodernist Art | PC + LIVE
Beyond classic-mimetic, modernist, and postmodernist.
Contemporary art is most often whimsical, out-of-context, inconsequential, and not truly engaging the "topics of our time".
Considering the present - environmental, political, ... - situation, this is aesthetically grotesque.
Assemble manifesto and practices:
* Establish measure of Urgency, and a consequent ethics-politics-aesthetics.
* Call-out all the bullshitt.
* New curatorial strategies - what is Totalist curation?
EVENT: Define program for Trucko van as a mobile hacklab | PC + LANZA
The van: 🔗trucko
* Contact local (Canarian) organisations:
See 🔗canarias for list.
* Make independent events and workshops happen:
See 🔗teaching, ... !
* Get locations to finance travel, at least "gas money" to move from the previous site
LAND: Birds and Cats | PC + LANZA
Birds are amazing, but often highly troubled.
"Feral cats kill an estimated 480 million birds in the US each year"
There are existing organisations working with that in Lanzarote:
* Punctum photographers
* Island Ecology and Evolution Research Group (IPNA, CSIC)
* Archipelago Chinijo
Domestic and semi-wild cats are a direct threat to birds.
* What is the population, and other factors that can be (or are) traced?
* What is the numeric scale of the problem?
* What can be done to counter this?
* Are there laws in place, are they respected?
* What is the state of protected areas?
* The cost of pets and pet food:
* https://edition.cnn.com/2019/02/22/africa/botswana-elephants-hunting-intl-scli/index.html (bushmeat as pet food)

INFRA | Ordering new stuff | PC+LIVE
Defining, researching, seleeting, financing, buying, shipping/delivering ... new equipment.
Addresses at 🔗shipping.
Specifically, for more on Van parts see 🔗trucko-new.
THEORY | Food Systems & Breadbasket failures
"""According to the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization (Statistics Division 2016), a relatively small area of the world, 23 percent of total cropland, accounts for a large proportion of total global cereal production, with most of the area devoted to three major cereal crops: maize (70.3 percent), wheat (69.3 percent), and rice (84.5 percent)."""
* What would a MBBF (Multi Breadbasket Failure) look like?
* What would be the dramaturgy of such a collapse?:
How long into the Sowing-to-Harvest timeline would we realize this?
How would panic buying play out?
