In Cybernetic Revolutionaries, Eden Medina tells the background of 2 intersecting utopian visions, one political and one technological. the 1st was once Chile's test with peaceable socialist switch lower than Salvador Allende; the second one was once the simultaneous try to construct a working laptop or computer approach that may deal with Chile's economic climate. Neither imaginative and prescient was once absolutely realized--Allende's govt ended with a violent army coup; the procedure, referred to as undertaking Cybersyn, used to be by no means thoroughly implemented--but they carry classes for this present day in regards to the dating among expertise and politics.
Drawing on wide archival fabric and interviews, Medina examines the cybernetic procedure expected via the Chilean government--which used to be to add holistic process layout, decentralized administration, human-computer interplay, a countrywide telex community, close to real-time keep an eye on of the becoming commercial zone, and modeling the habit of dynamic platforms. She additionally describes, and files with pictures, the network's superstar Trek-like operations room, which featured swivel chairs with armrest keep an eye on panels, a wall of monitors showing info, and flashing crimson lighting to point monetary emergencies.
Studying venture Cybersyn this present day is helping us comprehend not just the technological pursuits of a central authority in the course of political switch but in addition the constraints of the Chilean revolution. This historical past extra indicates how human makes an attempt to mix the political and the technological with the target of making a extra simply society can open new technological, highbrow, and political percentages. applied sciences, Medina writes, are old texts; after we learn them we're examining background.

Metalldrücken ist eine Technik der spanlosen Umformung von Blechen, die in Gefahr geraten ist, vergessen zu werden, obwohl sie auch heute noch anerkannter Lehrberuf des Metallhandwerks ist. Es erscheint deshalb als dankbare Aufgabe, die Möglichkeiten der Umformung durch Metalldrücken und ihre Vorzüge anderen Verfahren gegenüber aufzuzeigen und abzugrenzen und sie weiteren Kreisen be kanntzugeben, insbesondere, weil die Einführung der Mechanisierung eine neue Betrachtung und Beurteilung erfordert. Wenn das Werkstattbuch dazu beiträgt, Vergessenes aufzufrischen, Bestehendes festzuhalten und das Wissen zu erweitern, erfüllt es seinen Zweck. Den Maschinenfabriken, die bereitwillig wertvolle Unterlagen zur Verfügung gestellt haben, besonders der Firma Leifeld & Co., wird für ihre weitgehende Unter stützung aufrichtig gedankt. J. Spanlose Umformung von Blechen durch Drücken. A. Der Begriff "Metalldrücken". Metalldrücken ist ein Verfahren, durch das eine ebene Metallseheibe spanlos in ein tiefes Gefäß umgeformt werden kann. Der Ursprung des Verfahrens ist nicht bekannt, aber zweifellos geht das Metalldrücken auf das älteste Verfahren der Blechumformung, das "Treiben", zurück. B. Die Entstehung des Metalldrückens aus dem "Treiben". 1. Treiben. Beim Treiben wird durch Schläge mit Hämmern, die verschieden ge formte Pinnen haben, Blech durch Druck punktförmig verdrängt, wobei es durch all mähliche Verlegung der Angriffsstellen und durch Veränderung der Schlagkraft gezwun gen wird, sich in die gewünschte :Form um zuformen. Die Umformung durch Treiben wird auch heute noch geübt, wenn sich auch die Gefäß ausbildung durch Treiben weitgehend auf das Abb.1. Mechanischer Treibhammer beim Treiben auf Amboß mit Gummieinlage.
