A portable emergency communications station built out of an old PC case (from 2004)
Includes 440-MHz HAM, 2-meter MHz, CB(Citizens band), and FRS (which stands for Family Radio Service)
This web-audio interface addresses ways of listening to certain female-sounding voices that are perceived as inappropriate - because of the quality of their sound, their gender, the medium's distortions but also stereotypes and collective memories that they often awake. These are verbal expressions that have been associated with forms of 'monstrosity' since ancient times. You are welcome to contribute with your voices; to record yourselves, expressing your thoughts and choose a type of distortion to participate in forming new imaginaries around a technologically-mediated collective voice, which through its monstrosity can reveal other forms of speech.
The interface will be part of my performance 'Radio-active Monstrosities' under NL_CL #2: Flesh: https://instrumentinventors.org/event/nl_cl-2-flesh/.
It's implemented as a bit of hack modifying the core template pad.html at present, but it should be possible to port it to a standalone Etherpad plugin - I was just fighting with npm and node and require() and things I don't understand at all so took an easier way out.
Firefox's "strict" content blocking mode breaks it. Not sure why.

#covid #TracingApp #TechnologicalSolutionnism
Un consortium de technologistes, juristes, ingénieurs et épidémiologistes a proposé à la discussion un logiciel libre de traçage de contacts pour smartphone - https://github.com/DP-3T/documents - et a publié une bande dessinée dans plusieurs langues (entre autres diffusée en français sur https://framablog.org/.../une-appli-de-tracage-du-covid.../). Il s'agit sans doute de la principale solution qui s'ouvre ainsi au débat public et il faut le souligner. Mais cet appel a provoqué la publication par un groupe de chercheuses d'un "bug report", d'un texte qui pointe le biais important de solutionnisme technologique de cette proposition. Voir https://github.com/DP-3T/documents/issues/118
"Nous soulevons les questions qui suivent par souci de la manière dont les "applications de traçage de contacts" (ou « applications de traçage de proximité ») sont proposées sans tenir compte de la complexité du social. Les discussions actuelles ne présentent que deux options de vie: l'une de surveillance et l'autre de confinement. Nous demandons la possibilité d'imaginer autre chose pour la cohabitation future."

Dear losers of the radio genre poll,
I understand what its like to be the eternal runner up but let's unite tonight in our love for the unknown.
Tapes bought over the years during events. Records that were found in the back of thrift stores, markets and dusty attics.
Tune in tonight and you might find a track to be on the tip of ones tongue.
For this show, I will write an occasional message about a song in our chat/xmpp hangout
