innovation happens, be it scientific, technological, or cultural, it has the potential to create a new market, and a new value system. By doing so, it has the potential to threaten and displace current markets, and value systems. These innovations are typically called disruptive innovations.
The Disruption Files
will be a series of one hour documentaries about such disruptive
innovations. Each episode will explore the subject, interview the people
behind it, and discuss their motivations and aspirations concerning
their actions. We will also examine the obstacles and objections out
there to these disruptive innovations. Finally, we will dicuss the
future of this innovation, and what the world might look like fifty
years from now with this disruption as the basis of an accepted market
and value system.
The first episode, the pilot, will look at the
Technocopia Project enginnering collective, which is working on
post-scarcity manufacturing. We will travel to Worcester, MA, and spend a
week filming them, interviewing them, and getting to the bottom of what
they are doing. We will also be interviewing experts in economics,
manufacturing, 3D printing, and the concept of scarcity.
The fundraising for this series is going to be done through Mobcaster. We are currently stess-testing the crowdfunding campaign pitch page, so please visit and tell us how we can improve it. The 30 day crowdfunding campaign will go live on April 15th.
