, the Jesuit social historian Michel de Certeau suggested that resistance to the “celestial eye” of power from above must be met by the force of “ordinary practitioners of the city” who live “down below.”
When we assume that data is more important than the people who created it, we reduce the scope and potential of what diverse human bodies can bring to the “smart city” of the present and future. But the real “smart” city consists not only of commodity flows and information networks generating revenue streams for the likes of Cisco or Amazon. The smartness comes from the diverse human bodies of different genders, cultures, and classes whose rich, complex, and even fragile identities ultimately make the city what it is.

Please feel free to share this information, this is the real deal and it’s happening now.
Joseph Hart is here on our islands to establish a seed farm to supply growers on the mainland and provide material for oil, animal feedstock, waste treatment and bioremediation here in Hawaii.
This plant has always been legal – exempted from the 1930 narcotics act because US government and military needed it. Today there are huge industrial clients for this product in the oil industry and it is used very successfully for cleaning up chemical and oil spills. For commercial production of seed for oil, this plant gets 7000 pounds per acre whereas cannabis yields only 3000 pounds per acre.
The Hardy Plant gross 30 feet in six months and goes through its full cycle at this 22° latitude.
This is why Joseph is here looking for land on Kauai to establish a seed farm. The previous location of the seed farm was in New Mexico but the drug cartels of made it impossible to continue to operate there. Joseph attended Mississippi State University and earned his degrees in agriculture and ‘Lien systems’ and has built the production lines which milled the material and his company has a diverse product line and a huge inventory of products for all uses of hemp.
Please let anyone know that they can contact me and I will help them get any questions answered they may have about this cultivar and the role it may play in Hawaii’s agricultural future.
