The financial/social cataclysm starting in 2007 ended notions of a “great moderation” and the view that capitalism had triumph over its systemic developments to situation. the next failure of latest social formations to deal with the motives of the predicament supplies renewed impetus to raised research in reduction of the hunt for a greater destiny. This publication contributes to this seek by way of reviving a huge dialogue of what we people may want a post-capitalist destiny to be like. It argues for a comparative anthropological critique of capital notions of worth, thereby beginning the quest for a brand new set of values, in addition to picking out a couple of chosen computing practices that would evoke new values. It articulates a suggestive set of associations that can help those new values, and formulates a bunch of dimension practices usable for comparing the proposed associations. The publication is grounded in modern social technology, political concept, and significant thought. It goals to leverage the opportunity of substitute futures implied by means of a few computing practices whereas fending off hype and technological determinism, and makes use of those computing practices to explicate one real way to contemplate the future.
