Nintendo’s E3 presentation unveiled a lot of hot games. Fortnite is here and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will follow

Nintendo’s main focus was Super Smash Bros going into E3 2018. Nintendo’s E3 conference was probably the most anticipated of all. Everybody was surprised at how much of Nintendo’s stream — more then half of it — was dedicated to Smash. Of course, Nintendo announced a couple of new games to keep all Switch owners happy. Last year, Nintendo was well prepared for E3, offering exclusivity after exclusivity, lifting the stand. They didn’t talk about Nintendo 3DS , so it appears that Nintendo’s attention is set on its futuristic new platform.

Automatization – human labor danger or in potential progress?

In the latest years there has been a lot of studies and articles in regards to the rapid automation -or should I call it robotization?- trend the world is facing. Most of us are getting worried with all the mass unemployment predictions, declining wages and increased inequality, and I’m not saying we shouldn’t be.
In a study conducted by students at Oxford University it is being estimated that no less then 52% of jobs in Europe and 47% of the jobs in the US can be usurped by machines in the following 20 years. The statement of a New York University professor is supporting the study mentioned before. He affirmed that “The only real difference between enthusiasts and skeptics is a time frame.”

It’s true that we have been worrying about the rising tide of automation for over two centuries, and for two centuries we have been reassured that new jobs will naturally come into place to replace the ones “taken away” by machines. And if you look at the fact that even though from the 1800s to the 2000s there was a huge decline in the number of people working in agriculture, the percentage of workers in this field going down from 72% to 3%, but we haven’t faced a massive unemployment we can say they were right.

On the other hand, most of the ones worried of losing their jobs in the detriment of robots mostly worry about the financial loses. I say this because of the numerous workers that affirm they have what anthropologist David Graeber calls “bullshit jobs”. In a 2015 study of 12000 professionals, half of them referred to their job as being meaningless and with no significance, while another survey among 230000 respondents from 142 countries reveals that only 13% of employees like their jobs.
Considering the history of changes in the work field that took place in the last centuries and the level of work insatisfaction revealed in the latest studies, we might want to take into account the possibility of rethinking the definition of work. We should not worry about the ability of capitalism to reinvent new bullshit jobs but focus on creating ourselves the ones that we like creating ourselves the ones that we like would fit in the technological era.

I strongly believe we should start redefining the meaning of “work” and give a different form to our economy structure. I believe in a future where the size of your paycheck does not define the value of your work. Our work should be quantified only by looking at the amount of happiness we spread around and the amount of meaning we give. Starting with education, we should stop preparing the younger generations for yet another useless job and give them guidance to a life well lived.
I am looking forward to see the building up process of a future where “jobs are for robots and life is for humans”. And not because I imagine us humans walking around and doing nothing, but because I want us to do what we like and makes sense to us.

How to build your own shipping container home

You might have heard about this latest trend in architecture of building houses out of shipping containers. As it happens with any new thing that appears on the market, of course there are a lot of pros and cons regarding this revolutionary method but me personally I taught it is a really cool idea so I started digging into it.

Because of being a “Planet friend” as I like to call myself, the first advantage that caught my attention was the recycling part where you get to use those shipping containers that are out-of-service and give them a new meaning. I know most of the ones that are used in this scope are unfortunately almost brand new ones but if this aspect is important to you, as it is for me, you can find companies that use “oldies but goldies”. Now, yet another con to this idea was that the old ones are not in good shape anymore and can be even dangerous to build your house with them but the truth is that the material can be treated and reconditioned.

This is how I took every advantage of the new home architectural method, the cons against each and tried to find a balance between facts and what I would want my future home to be like. In the end, I have decide that it’d fit my desires and also my financial needs. The next phase was to investigate which are the steps that one should follow in order to get the desired results in the construction of “The Dream House”. After searching around I have also talked with some people that activate in the field to have a clear picture of the steps that we’ll have to take.
Even though designing the house on your own might sound interesting at first, I would really recommend having some professionals looking over your shoulder at any step in the project. We might have good ideas, but let’s face it, we cannot see the things in such details as an architect/designer/engineer would. They will actually take your ideas and give them shape and form and the end result, you.’ll love it!

Besides, from a safety point of view you’d also want somebody that really has the knowledge to help you out. Choosing the material for a safe and strong foundation and roof, choosing the containers themselves and how to attach them are steps that in my opinion really need guidance from experts.
For now, until the designer come with a sketch of what will soon be my home I will watch the video below and dream of how it’s going to be. If you think this is interesting, hit play and imagine how your shipping containers house could be.
