Repair cafe: community based skills lending

Just heard about this, definitely hoping to check the next one out. Toronto Repair Cafe is a monthly event where various people come together, some of them know how to fix things, others have things that need to be fixed, and so it goes. Oh yeah, and sometimes there are 3D printers so replacement parts can literally be created on the spot!

To read more about the event, check out <a href="http://metronews viagra a vendre suisse.ca/news/toronto/1122796/talking-trash-with-toronto-repair-cafe-organizer-paul-magder/” target=”_blank”>this article. Here’s an excerpt:

What kind of things can people have fixed?

The volunteers are called fixers. They have skills in different areas. We have people that can fix electronics, computers, iPads, tablets and phones. We have people that can fix appliances, small appliances like lamps and toasters, and sometimes even umbrellas, things around the house.

And then we have sewers and jewelry people who repair jewelry. In the summer we have a bike repair person and we also have a bookbinder.

It’s different people with different skills.

What’s the purpose of the café?

There are many. The first one is the obvious one, to prevent things from going into the garbage. We want people to change their attitude from a throw-away society to a fix-it society.

The next big thing is to show people that they can actually repair things themselves. Most of the people are volunteers who fix things. They don’t fix things for a living. This is something that they just enjoy doing and they like to demonstrate to other people that they can do it as well.

The community spirit that it creates is really exhilarating. People just love it. It’s a café, so we also have coffee and pastries and so on. People just come and hang out and watch what’s going on and meet other people. It’s a great community activity and really promotes cohesion.

Sounds good to me! Maybe if you go to the next one, I’ll see you there.

Creative system for letting your neighbours know what they can borrow

From an article titled “These Mailbox Stickers Tell Your Neighbors What They Can Borrow”:

A Switzerland-based project called Pumpipumpe is encouraging neighborhoods to build a greater sense of community by placing stickers on their mailbox to indicate what goods they have to loan to their neighbors.

As community-oriented as I am, I don’t know most of my neighbors. It’s not a matter of intimidation or thinking they’re not friendly, but it’s simply because I’ve never really needed to know all of my neighbors. We’re all quiet. We stay out of each others’ hair.

This idea targets that notion that neighborhoods can be closer and work together. This project first started as a way for cyclists to know which houses have a bike pump just in case they got a flat, but it’s become more than that. Now people who want to take part can illustrate that they’re willing to loan out lawn mowers, toys, costumers, and even wifi.

I think it raises a good question about how we treat stuff too. Why does every home in every neighborhood need to have a lawn mower? Or a power drill? I guess in a way it doesn’t make sense. What are your thoughts on this?

I think it’s a clever idea and can definitely help neighbours meet and help each other. Thus I am boosting the signal for anyone else who’d like to get on board with this.


Painting the stairs rainbow

Most weeks I seem to be able to find examples of things to file under the “Leading by Example” category on this blog, and that’s great. Here is the latest one. I found it on facebook, but the link in the post to the original article is giving me an error so I’m not sure if the server is overloaded or if the page is actually dead. So I’ll just post the picture from the post and quote the text.

rainbow stairsA 64 year-old man in Istanbul decided to brighten the neighborhood by painting rainbow colors on some wide, gray, crumbling stairs. When municipal officials sent workers after nightfall to hurriedly repaint the steps gray, a quiet revolution started on Twitter. Not only did volunteers come out to repaint those stairs that Huseyin Cetinel had spent hundreds of dollars on, they painted other stairs and walkways in cities around Turkey, posting photos on social media. A Pandora’s Box of color had unwittingly been opened.

Pretty awesome story, I even just googled “painted stairs in Istanbul” to try to make sure this is real, and I see plenty of evidence that it is.

Here is a news article about it: http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/istanbuls-rainbow-stairs-painted-grey.aspx?PageID=238&NID=53528&NewsCatID=341

Also worth checking out is India’s Holi Festival of Colour.

Toronto area science, philosophy, art and curiosity related groups and events

Despite being a Toronto resident, I am trying to avoid focusing too much on local things for this site. However, since this site is meant to be a curated source – a singular location people can come to find lots of useful information, links and resources – that it wouldn’t hurt to throw up a post about local events for local readers.

Recently I’ve been turned onto several groups that run events in the city that I have attended and very much enjoyed.

The Center for Inquiry (Toronto Chapter) is one. They run a monthly event called “Cafe Skeptique” (I reviewed it last month after attending for the first time), which is a discussion about a particular topic or idea.

They also do a monthly pub crawl, where anyone can come and talk about anything. I’ve attended two of these, the first one I ended up in a discussion about libertarian ideals and “true freedom”. The more recent one we talked about religion and education.

Additionally, they run a Science and Philosophy Book Club, which I just discovered and am hoping to attend the next occurrence.

The other group I’ve recently started attending events of, is CASA (The Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence Students Association), a University of Toronto based group.

Like Cafe Skeptique, CASA hosts a monthly event called “Cognitive Séance”. If you got to www.cogsci.ca, you can join the group’s mailing list and get regular updates about upcoming events, and also student projects. According to their event page, they also have a book club, and several other events. You can also sync their calendar to your google account, which I find very helpful.

Some other groups or venues I have found related to these topics and ideas:

DIY Bio group on meetup.com. Their bio:

Do-it-yourself biological innovation! We’re inspired by the California group “biocurious”, like them, we believe in the power of open source, open access, and learning in community. We believe this philosophy should be applied to biology! Wouldn’t it be great to have a biology-based maker space here in Toronto? Join us and help make that a reality!

They organized the DNA sequencing talk that I went to earlier this week. I also attended another event organized by them the week before that. The event was called “Art Sci Salon”, which – like Action Potential Labs, mixes art and science together. The last Art Sci Salon was about something called the “OncoMap”.

Action Potential Labs:

Action Potential Lab is Toronto’s first laboratory dedicated to merging science and art. It is here where the teachings of both fields interact and exchange by way of classes, workshops, birthday parties, lecture series and various community outreach programs.

Also, Site 3 Laboratory (I have not been yet). Self described: “We are an awesome, eclectic and diverse group of artists, makers, engineers, creators, techies; people who collaborate to make cool things.”

Nerd Nite Toronto: Monthly mini-TED Talk-esque presentations by smart and humble folk, plus a casual social component, and trivia!

And lastly, on a slightly more casual, fun, geeky note, there is “Geekalicious”, a social group for geeks to hang out, talk, play board of video games, do karaoke and other fun activities. The organizer, Mike, is a very friendly, nice guy and is all about running fun events for geeky folks.

Added Feb 11, 2014University of Toronto’s monthly Public Astronomy Tour.

On the first Thursday of most months, free tours are offered by the graduate students in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Toronto.

And of course, there is always the Ontario Science Center, where I personally made a visit to last year, but I would say that they are largely aimed at educating children about science and so if you are an adult without children, you might not find you get as much out of a visit there.

If you know of any more groups or spaces that fit in with this bunch, please do send them in to me (adam@curiositycrossroads.com), I’d be happy to include them!

Holi Festival of Colour

I first learned of this on tumblr a while ago, I saw a bunch of pictures of people being doused in bright powder and grinning from ear to ear (I only learned of what it was when I googled “festival of colour”). It really caught my attention and interest. It’s hard not to get caught up in something like this, so much genuine enthusiasm and positive spirit.

It is something I would like an opportunity to participate in someday, whether in New Delhi, or perhaps something similar here at home.
