Marching Back to the Tribe

Hendrik-Jan Grievink
July 30th 2010

Hurray, the Next Nature tribe is growing! Today, we’ve welcomed our 2,000th friend on Facebook. And what better way is there to honour this person with a celebrational parade organised by our comrades from the Next Nature Twitter Tribe? IS Parade is a nice webtoy, but also a good illustration of how social media can be understood as a form of contemporary tribalness, including the symbolism that comes with it. March on, back to the tribe – forward to a next nature!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
