"The British home secretary has formally approved the extradition of WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange to the United States, in the latest development in a dangerous and misguided criminal prosecution that has the potential to criminalize national security journalism in the United States.

Previously, a major coalition of civil liberties organizations, including Freedom of the Press Foundation, implored U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to drop the case against Assange in the name of protecting the rights of journalists everywhere. So, too, have the editors of major news outlets such as The New York Times and Washington Post.

By continuing to extradite Assange, the Biden DOJ is ignoring the dire warnings of virtually every major civil liberties and human rights organization in the country that the case will do irreparable damage to basic press freedom rights of U.S. reporters."

Hi folks,

A colleague of mine is running a survey on Sustainability in Software Practices.

If you are a "software practitioner", it would be great if you could complete it.

Thanks, and boosts welcome!

Every Thursday at the office, I go to the market. fresh fish, cheap and good fruit and vegetables. Sometimes I buy fries.

Should I put Full Snack Developer on my resume?

This weekend we celebrate the work of 10 graduating students with an exhibition, presentation, workshops and (of course) a party! Join us for WALKIE TALKIE in Worm, Rotterdam on Friday (18:00-2:00) and Saturday (12:00-17:00).

More information about WALKIE TALKIE can be found on the website of Worm: worm.org/production/xpub-pzi-g

Is it heresy to ask on mastodon whether there is overlap between #permacomputing people and fidonet? The protocols need to be de-ASCIIed but there's a lot of experience there with offline-first networking and maximizing utility from constrained resources.

MIT press is relaunching the Software Studies book series and I am very excited to work together with other fabolous co-editors Wendy Chun, Jichen Zhu and @nwf.
Check out the press release: mitpress.mit.edu/blog/mit-pres and our thoughts on the new series: computationalculture.net/softw.
Feel free to starting sending proposals our way.

Check out the new manifesto here too: gitlab.com/siusoon/refresh/

We're happy to announce that we just started to work on three new interdependent online resources: the Damaged Earth Catalog, the Permacomputing wiki, and the permacomputing workshop series!

///

Damaged Earth Catalog

A growing online catalog of the different terms in circulation, used by communities of practice, in relation to computing and network infrastructure informed by ecological ethics, degrowth, resilience, repair, and minimalism. Currently developed by @l03s as part of her PhD research.

damaged.bleu255.com

///

Permacomputing wiki

A new wiki about permacomputing that aims to expose its principles, present and discuss the concepts and jargon required to engage with permacomputing, and maintain a repository of related projects. Currently facilitated by @viznut and @320x200 open for contributors!

permacomputing.net

///

Permacomputing in the Arts

A workshop series that will be developed throughout end-2022 and 2023 as an onboarding course for permacomputing practices in art an design. The workshops will be made available as an Open Educational Resource. Developed by @320x200 as part of a postdoc research on the topic.

Academic books about activism and struggles 

Hi, all! I'm interested in getting recommendations about recent books focusing on activist struggles. Particularly books that theorize what "struggle" means. I am most interested in struggles for justice, so the books are about Black, indigenous, LGBTQI2S, and anti-capitalist struggles, specifically, all the better!

What's good in this realm? Boosts appreciated.

<Experimental Publishing Graduation show 2022 | WALKIE TALKIE>
"XPUB Calling, Do you Copy? Over (...)"
"(...) Go Ahead XPUB. Over"
"On it.(...)"

Graduating students of the Experimental Publishing Master (XPUB), Piet Zwart Institute, invite you to tune into the frequencies of their collective knowledge during an evening and afternoon in Worm (Rotterdam).

What are we transmitting?
Hegemonies of standardised languages, publishing act introspection, ultraterritorality and telecommunications, conversations on food, economies and alternative communities of the Web, participatory narratives, diffractive methodologies, hybrid reality gaming ... These seem all different sorts of waves but in fact they are very much connected. We invite you to eavesdrop on our signal exchanges.

• Date: Friday 24th - Saturday 25th June
••18:00 - 00:00 on the 24.06
••12:00 - 17:00 on the 25.06
•Location: UBIK & Slash Gallery

We are Kendal Beynon, Martin Foucaut, Camilo García A., Clara Gradel, Nami Kim, Euna Lee, Jacopo Lega, Federico Poni, Louisa Teichmann, and Floor van Meeuwen.

Hi! I'm Soyun, an interdisciplinary artist from Korea, based in The Hague, The Netherlands.

Hi, I’m gwil. I’m a programmer, illustrator, and father of two.

I used to work at a war crimes tribunal, a few e-commerce places, and am now using my practice to build alternative distributed systems.

Right now I’m working full-time on Earthstar, a FLOSS tool for offline-first, small, undiscoverable networks. earthstar-project.org

I also used to have the time to make a lot of odd-format, narrated webcomics like this one: gwil.co/peaches/leader.

Thank you for letting me in here!

I just launched the latest update to Finger Plays, my net.art piece about the finger protocol, networks, relationships...

fingerplays.emenel.ca
... or finger @fingerplays.emenel.ca

This version adds a few new elements, and many tweaks to the text and audio.

This project reimagines a type of poetic embodied network presence, below the surface of the graphical interfaces and corporate web platforms where we spend most of our computer time. It asks viewers to engage with the command line finger protocol, and turns the log of requests into an audio-visual poem.
