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. (...)

✨➡️📦➡️🔮 Idiotic Kernels

I gave a talk at XPUB this morning (Experimental Publishing MA @ Piet Zwart Institute).

We discussed almanac.computer and in particular the use of Jupyter Notebooks to develop the project. I argued that they might be used to open up the potential for **idiotic** computing.

Thanks @320x200 & @manetta for having me!

This is the super-vanilla version, but I decided to polish it as a graduation project. Let's go

1-bit graphics "compression" 

Built something kind of goofy this morning: A compressed format for storing 1-bit graphics, inspired by the way the commodore 64 stores video in memory. I call it "Tinytile".

In this approach, an 8x8 tile is divided up into 16 2x2 blocks, where each block can only be one of 2 bitmap combinations.

A tinytile can be represented in 3 bytes. The first byte is divided up in to 2 4-bit nibbles. Lower nibble is pattern 0, upper nibble is pattern 1. The remaining two bits act as an indexed bitarray of the tile.

The following image are a 16x16 tileset of randomly generated tinytiles. Normally, this 128x128 image would take 2048 bytes of data, by tinytile can do it 768 bytes, or 1024 bytes of base64.

Looking for a reading list for the current state of affairs in feminist musicology and also LGBTQ musicology or anything about sexuality and gender and musicology.

Interesting article on Netflix's "The Social Dilemma"

I especially found this point valuable:

Propaganda, bullying, and misinformation are actually far bigger and more complicated. The film briefly mentions, for instance, that Facebook-owned WhatsApp has spread misinformation that inspired grotesque lynchings in India. The film doesn’t mention, however, that WhatsApp works almost nothing like Facebook. It’s a highly private, encrypted messaging service with no algorithmic interference, and it’s still fertile ground for false narratives. As Alexis Madrigal notes, condemning the platforms together comes “uncomfortably close to admitting that mobile communications pose fundamental challenges to societies across the world.” There’s a fair case for that, he argues — but a case with much more alarming implications.

Radicalization doesn’t just happen on Facebook and YouTube either. Many of the deadliest far-right killers were apparently incubated on small forums: Christchurch mosque killer Brenton Tarrant on 8chan; Oregon mass shooter Chris Harper-Mercer on 4chan; Tree of Life Synagogue killer Robert Bowers on Gab; and Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik on white supremacist sites including Stormfront, a 23-year-old hate site credited with inspiring scores of murders.

These sites aren’t primarily driven by algorithms or profit motives. Instead, they twist and exploit the open internet’s positive ability to connect like-minded people. When harmful content surfaces on them, it raises complex moderation questions for domain hosts and web infrastructure providers — a separate set of powerful companies that have completely different business models from Facebook.

If, like me, you have been unable to follow in real-time the hearings currently taking place, then visit Craig Murray's blog to catch up and read his thorough and detailed daily summaries. These are not short pieces, but fairly long and complete reports about what is being discussed, presented, and challenged during the sessions, going in details of the anomalies and tactics used by the prosecution.

Currently no mainstream media, even those who present themselves as independent, are covering the hearings in any serious fashion, if at all.

Regardless of what you think of Assange and it is important that what is being discussed there can circulate as much as possible. Many things are being debunked, and overall, the outcome of the hearings for potential US extradition will have dramatic chilling effects on future efforts to publish such documents.

Today, me and @ccl will be giving a talk about Varia and the building of collective infrastructures as part of the event "De-platform-ization, Ethics and Alternative Social Media":

The event starts at 18:00 CET.

Furthermore, @liaizon will also be giving an introduction to the fediverse!

Hier je découvrais le concept de "redirection écologique" forgé par le laboratoire Origens Media Lab basé à Clermont-Ferrand. Une proposition très intéressante pour dépasser les faiblesses des modèles #RSE dans le cadre d'organisations basées sur l'extractivisme. https://www.ladn.eu/entreprises-innovantes/redirection-ecologique-business-model-anthropocene-origens-medialab/ #écologie #anthropocene

Current roadmap

For a workshop, a based is looking for someone from Belgium/the Netherlands/France to give a workshop in , especially focussed on the editing part. Some animation is welcome too.
This person should give the workshop in Dutch or English. The framework is F/Loss in education, in the edit studio context.

This is a (modestly - education!) paid job, in January 2021, for one afternoon.
Please & thanks!

Send me a DM if you are interested
