Coming Thursday at 11:00 AM I'll be talking with Loth Moths
and Nadja Lipsyc in the panel "Making Games on a Damaged Earth" at @ImpaktFestival
Zero Footprint. It will have a footprint, so I'll try to make it count. Skillfully moderated by Sebastian Quack.

We write to share news about a faculty search at the Rhode Island School of Design in the field of Art and Technology. 

As part of its Race in Art & Design cluster hire initiative, RISD seeks to hire 10 new faculty in multiple disciplines to begin in Fall of 2021. One of these positions is for a new faculty member with an artistic career at the intersection of technology, race, and decolonial practices, who will join the faculty in the Digital + Media graduate program and the undergraduate interdisciplinary concentration in Computation, Technology, and Culture.

We would greatly appreciate it if you would help us spread the word of this opportunity.

The link to apply with additional information is:

And there is an article at RISD’s website on the initiative at:

Candidates who submit their materials by November 20, 2020 are assured full consideration.

Thank you in advance for sharing this news.

@jboy I'm not sure it's richer, but it's definitively been a pet peeve of mine for a while :) I'm a mess at keeping track of things I write/do but my PhD thesis is basically the synthesis of all the writing I've done on the topic so far.

There's a potential publisher waiting for a book proposal for year now... I'm procrastinating super hard on this one :(

@jboy Totally, but it's quite tricky to avoid as well. Next to fashion/hype cycles I think that the various pressures from publish-perish/relevance/FOMO/etc does not help. Sometimes the pattern in some academic writing to come up with a new original term for things that have been already discussed quite thoroughly elsewhere, is clearly part of some landmarking, territorial, jargon competition. But sometimes it's also the flood/noise and compartmentalisation of publishing practices in each discipline/field that obfuscates useful terms and frameworks. Nothing new for sure, but at times it feels this is getting really worse.

@air_pump 90s tactical media practices has quickly became for some a cheap media art production formula in the last 15 years to just make a temp big splash in mainstream media that serves nothing but the advancement of one's own career in a part of the field of art and culture production that confuses activation/activism/engagement/politics with opportunistic appropriation of societal issues.

Hello, I’m the reel2bits project main developper (a #FOSS self-hostable #soundcloud like with #ActivityPub federation).

It’s written in python/flask/vuejs and I need help because of health issues I’m unable to work a lot on it anymore, if you are interested to help me on some of the issues and more specially the ActivityPub part, you can contact me through:

the project matrix channel

boosts appreciated, thanks.

@jboy Fromm's book was a great inspiration for me when I was trying to make sense of a framework/model to describe participation and systems of belief within FLOSS communities, also in relation to forking, migration, exile, etc. I think the core idea(s) behind the book are still very relevant today, even if it would obviously need some re-contextualisation in relation to social media overload, software mediation of everything, etc. (I have a vague memory that the last part did not age super well though, I recall some cliché stuff about art and creativity).

@hkz wow, this is really nice, great to learn this device can be turned into a low-cost quality alternative to the OSSC/Framemeister/etc. Thanks!
BTW: maybe relevant/interesting, we're a small group of noobs interested in related topics trying to bootstrap a small online community feel free to drop by :)

@praxeology @entreprecariat @rra no idea if/how does that. But I think/recall that was planning to drop elasticsearch?

Oh! Can I ask you what kind of firmware and hardware mods you did? I almost got one few years ago but was a bit hesitant then...

@entreprecariat @rra It's a real shame though, but requirements are simply not reasonable for most instances.

I'm not familiar enough with this software, but it seems that it's essentially designed for very very very large amounts of data and fast/instant real-time search. Small instances running on modest servers do not fit in this picture sadly, feels like it's a rather painful blind spot of the project.

At a quick glance, the only relevant issue I found was this

further into the rabbit hole, started to document findings about SoundStudio. Sadly a lot of stuff has just completely disappeared. Search engines are useless, and the wayback machine can only help with a very very few sites (also assuming that you have a URL to start with). Right now the leftover knowledge seems to be scattered across the archives of past discussions on a few web forums.

ssh vpn network question, boosts appreciated 

@sifr Ah, that would be a problem then. You need to have the inside machine being able to establish an outgoing connection. As long as this is possible you can use VPNs, or even just reverse SSH tunnels (autossh can help), otherwise it's a bit hopeless... But there could be some limited workaround, your network may just block some known ports, but have a whole bunch of high number ports unrestricted, so you could configure your outside VPN machine to listen on such high number(s) port(s). If the machine is really isolated but can reach another inside machine on a less isolated/restricted subnet, you could use the less restricted machine as an intermediary hop before going out, but then it starts to be quite a project. I guess it depends on what you need...

ssh vpn network question, boosts appreciated 

Yes, as long as the inside VPN machine can establish a VPN connection to an outside VPN machine, then this outside VPN machine will permit any other outside VPN machines to get into the inside VPN machine (granted you use their VPN IPs to SSH into, and that the inside VPN machine has SSH listening on the VPN IP). You may also want to look into tinc (specially the dev version which is very stable) for something easier/faster to configure.

This radio broadcast is the result of conversations and working relationships that navigate the concept of what an archipelagic construction could mean, in terms of organization, belonging, and self. It was constructed between an archipelago of friends such as but not limited to Angeliki, Clara, Chung, and Reinaart.

This radio broadcast departs from conversations about the essay Sketches of Archipelagic Poetics of Postcolonial Belonging by maryamdeluz and Marco Cuevas-Hewitt. The essay is an island of a mutual aid anarchozine package compiled by EtnikoBandido. (...)
