The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger
image

By Marc Levinson, Princeton University Press, pp. 544, £19.95, 2016.

In an age when many of the world’s most entrepreneurial companies don’t own all their assets — think Airbnb, WeWork, Uber — the shipping container may seem quite a boring, quotidian object. But this symbol of globalization teaches us useful lessons about the changing nature of capitalism; it shows how new technology alone cannot move markets. Challengers taking on incumbents need a heady mixture of determination, political capital and good fortune to succeed.

The story of the container begins with tycoon Malcolm MacLean, who in the 1960s bought cut-price ex-Second World War vessels from the US government with the intention of disrupting shipping. His revolutionary idea was to adapt vessels so they could carry standardized metal boxes; a path-breaking conception in an industry that relied on piecemeal breakbulk shipping.

Like most industrial innovation, development in the shipping industry was underwritten by government subsidies and pushed forward by international conflict. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s consecutive US administrations provided subsidies for certain cargo routes and international organizations such as the International Standards Organisation sought to set universal standards for container sizes — a feat requiring a degree of unity from shipping monoliths fighting tooth-and-nail to remain profitable. The Vietnam War was crucial for MacLean and his associates, as for the first time the US government turned to the private sector to get military resources in the right place at the right time. The security brought about by an early incarnation of the container showed governments what could be achieved through the standardization of transportation and enabled the business to set up new shipping routes to Southeast Asia.

Soon it became as cost effective to manufacturer a dress for sale in a Manhattan department store in Manila as it was to have it stitched in New York. Later, in the 1970s and 1980s countries including Singapore would build some the largest port in the world at Pasir Pajang. This was capable of serving ships that carried bigger and bigger quantities of container freight. These decades would also for the first time see major private sector investment in maritime infrastructure that until then had been the sole province of the state. This story is more than a history of a steel metal oblong because it illustrates the intimate forces at play throughout any type of global innovation. Intermodal transport changed the shape of the world and brought economies together. The process of change was spurred by MacLean but relied on permissive government policy, international coordination and spike in demand for a cheaper way to move consumer goods.

Fusion is a robot that can be worn like a backpack, giving the wearer use of two additional, remotely operated arms.⁠
The arms are maneuvered by a distant second user wearing an Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset and operating the platform’s handheld Touch controllers.⁠
The robot’s “head”, which peers over the shoulder of the user wearing it, has two cameras for eyes, capturing a live feed that is streamed to the operator.⁠
The operator of the robotic arms and hands can pick things up or move around the arms and hands of the human wearing the backpack. The mechanical hands can be removed and replaced with straps that go around the backpack-wearer’s wrists if you want to truly remote control their arms. ⁠

Vote for Planned Parenthood at SXSW!
image

Planned Parenthood is proud to be a leader in using technology and innovation to expand people’s access to information and health care. As politicians continue to restrict or block people’s access to health care across the country, Planned Parenthood is committed to breaking down barriers and reaching people wherever they are — no matter what. We hope to bring our expertise to SXSW — an annual convening of discovery, learning, and networking with creatives across the interactive, film, and music industries.

Looking for a quick and easy way to support Planned Parenthood? Help get us on stage at SXSW 2020 by voting for our panels!  And please encourage your friends to vote by this Friday, 8/23!

How to vote:

You’ll have to create a profile in order to vote — but those five minutes will go a long way in order to help ensure that Planned Parenthood can participate in SXSW 2020. 

Once you’re registered, vote for our panels (detailed below). To do this, please click the “Vote Up” icon on the left side of the page to vote for each of our 6 submissions.

Here are our proposed panels:

1. IT’S NOT WHAT YOU STAND FOR, IT’S WHAT YOU STAND UP FOR

Brands are standing up for what they believe in now more than ever. Consumers are also demanding more from the brands with which they engage. This discussion will focus on what it looks like when a brand chooses to stand up in support of a social issue, and what it looks like when a brand misses the mark.

Shortly after the signing of the most aggressive anti-abortion law in recent American history, several progressive organizations convened a group of over 200 corporate executives from globally recognized brands to sign a powerful “Don’t Ban Equality” statement in the New York Times.

This panel will bring together the nation’s leading provider of sexual and reproductive health care and a top brand (that took a stand), moderated by a high-profile marketing and digital entrepreneur.

2. DRIVING CULTURE AS AN ACT OF RESISTANCE

Music has the power to change hearts and to change minds. It has the power to change our culture, to breakdown our history, and change future behaviors. Music has always held a role in the resistance and today is no different. This panel will convene culture makers to discuss the role creators play in shifting culture.

A senior staff member from Planned Parenthood Federation of America and top entertainment manager will discuss the music industry’s role in shaping our future and how artists approach their role (and responsibility) in the resistance.

3. COMBATING BIAS THROUGH INCLUSIVE DIGITAL PRODUCTS

It wasn’t until 2011 that female crash course dummies were used to test car safety design. Bias baked into AI has led to darker skin not being recognized as quickly. When our unconscious biases aren’t actively addressed in product design and development, the impact can be devastating. At the same time, there’s a financial cost for companies that alienate certain groups from participating.

But some brands are stepping up to proactively combat bias, creating experiences that are more inclusive and embrace diversity. Hear from the companies leading the charge: Airbnb, Planned Parenthood, Adobe, and Work & Co will discuss strategies and tactics to inform more inclusive product development, and ensure your products can serve as many people as possible.

4. DESIGNING PRODUCT FOR BLACK AND LATINX COMMUNITIES

To provide the best possible online health care experience, digital professionals have to understand and embrace the implications of changes in access to care, from a technical and societal lens. By ensuring we build products with our Black and Latinx users in mind, we used technology and innovation to create a suite of digital tools that are useful and educational, as well as inclusive and nonjudgmental. 

In this panel, digital product managers and sex educators talk through ways in which we utilize educationally sound, medically accurate, and equity-centered best practices to build understandable, affirming, and relevant products in order to help our users access the sexual and reproductive health care they need and deserve, regardless of race, gender, income, age, or ability status.

5. ROO - THE INCLUSIVE SEX ED CHATBOT FOR TEENS

Planned Parenthood’s sex ed chatbot, Roo, lets teens anonymously ask questions about sex, relationships, puberty and more. Roo’s success (770K conversations in 5 months) stems from a judgment-free product and marketing strategy. Students participate in ongoing user testing, and help define the product since day 1. In this talk, dive in to DEI guidelines to design the bot —tone, UX, ethical AI— and go behind the scenes on a companion sex ed YouTube series with a diverse & inclusive cast.

Voting ends Friday 8/23. See you at SXSW!
