Brain-dropping about the prison system

05/07/2016

I know a thing or two about technology. Many colleagues in my direct environment do so even more.
Why not apply this knowledge on the prison system, combined with some straight forward social thinking.

What are, from a progressive perspective, the 3 main reasons to lock up criminal offenders?
1) To force them to come to insight of their wrong-doing
2) To protect society from the criminal offender as long as possible
3) To protect them from the temptations of society (eg. drugs, sexual stimuli, …)

The Problem
There is no inherent reason to keep them “locked up” behind high walls to meet those goals.
One might even argue that our contemporary solution is non-efficient, extremely costly and even counter-productive towards the latter (access to drugs, peer influence, …)

The Solution
Protected prison farms with smart monitoring technology. A futuristic goal, agreed.
By replacing walls with efficient monitoring and defence, maintaining a closed community system, and motivate the activation in agricultural produce, profound results might germinate.
Just to go all out-of-the-box, let these farms be the source of state-controlled cannabis production.

Hello Cloudoki

05/30/2015

Bram decided to team up with Rui and yours truly from Donderlab to start kicking some awesome butts in App Land.
Cloudoki bundles all the knowledge we gathered over the past many years, from oneDot only, over Tick.ee up to Cloudwalkers. An impressive set of feats and experiences – I personally really believe in this next chapter.

www.cloudoki.com

We build cloud-based API’s, hybrid or native mobile apps, web applications, and do deep-level social media integration.

We speak Node.js, PHP, Python, C++ and Swift fluently to build for native, web, iOS and Android. We use Ionic, Cordova, Backbone.js, Angular.js, Pyramid and Laravel to make it beautifully usable.

For now, most of my code articles wil be hosted on the Cloudoki blog – blog.cloudoki.com, until time is less of a luxury to spend.
*Shouldn’t take that long…*
