This paper explores the contribution of design to the ‘domestication’ of traditional crafts: the cheap osrs gold reframing and support of such practices as amateur activities. Informed by twelve examples, six design strategies for the domestication of traditional crafts are identified and discussed.This issue emerges from a research project investigating the role of design in developing and revitalising culturally significant designs, products and associated practices.Within this paper, we focus on strategies that seek to revitalise traditional crafts by supporting domestic activity. This topic is introduced through a discussion of commercialisation, a more common approach to revitalisation.Two contemporary social trends support domestication: the strong interest particularly in post industrial countries in provenance, local distinctiveness and authenticity; and the growth of maker culture and its ethos of amateur creativity.We gather twelve examples of various formats such as books, kits, online communities, videos, workshops and holidays which support amateur activity. The examples are analysed via a matrix, which considers their characteristics in terms of two variables: the way in which knowledge is exchanged, and the degree of experimentation facilitated by the activity. By categorising the examples, we identify six domestication strategies, each of which involves a different combination of design activities. Finally, we discuss domestication in terms of skill and innovation, arguing that amateur practice has much to offer in both respects.
I grabbed 2 old dells an optiplex 755 and 780. I’m gonna throw windows 7 on one and xubuntu on the other. Should I just use the integrated graphics on the 780 and use the 5450 i already have to boost the performance of the 755? I think I’m gonna go with xubuntu on the 755 because I grabbed a refurbed hdd for it and it won’t be as big of a pain in the ass to run windows update again in case the thing craps the bed. Also could the gma 4500 handle dual monitors? I know the 5450 can.
My current 9 year old MacBook has reached the end of the upgrade lifecycle, and I’m in the market for a replacement. My needs: light, sturdy, can run Photoshop, good sized screen, magsafe power cord. I have been disappointed with MacBook Pros for some time. I used a Surface for several years at my previous position and was pretty happy with it, but I am open to other Windows machines.

If he has any doubt, he should admit honestly that he could have been mistaken. That poor mother will never be the same and I have extreme empathy for her.
