@neauoire I just read 'History and Future of FLOSS' by @audrey and the non-discriminatory nature of FLOSS is most certainly part of it:
@320x200 and I also have a forthcoming text that goes into this, specifically in relation to fedi
Article intéressant sur la lutte des étudiant.e.s de l'Ensci
Partagé quant à sa conclusion. Je pense que l'état a une vision très claire du design comme devant être au service des besoins de l'industrie, devant être rentable, d'où la nomination de profils gestionnaires à la tête des écoles.
De fait, dans la situation actuelle, le design ne peut se faire que contre l'état. Mais pour ça il faut renouer avec une approche conflictuelle.
The Hidden Life of an Amazon User, by Joana Moll
"The Hidden Life of an #Amazon User reveals the hidden economic and environmental costs offloaded to, and unwittingly paid for, by the end-user. The Hidden Life of an Amazon User confronts us with the environmental footprint instigated by purchasing a book on Amazon.com: 87.33Mb of data is activated to navigate through 12 different interfaces—1307 different requests totaling 8724 pages of printed code—all used for continuously tracking customer behavior to amplify the monetization of the end-user and increase business revenues. To put it bluntly, the user is not just exploited by means of their free labor but is also forced to assume the energy costs of such exploitation.
The project includes three commissioned texts by Jussi Parikka, Jara Rocha and Christian Ulrik Andersen & Søren Bro Pold, available on the website of the project."
From this 1953 campaign paid for by the disposable packaging industry to today, I will give an overview of several flavours of greenwashing with a special focus on ICT, and of course a ton of counterstrategies!

students protest in France, suicide note, #LaPrecariteTue
In the past days there has been increasing student protests following the attempt of a student to set himself on fire (at time of writing state is 90% burnt, intensive care). The event is hardly visible in foreign media, so here is a rough translation of the letter/post he left.
(this is a rewrite from an earlier post, now behind a CW, as kindly suggested by someone)
"The House Intelligence Committee held its first open hearing of the #impeachment inquiry against President #Trump. Lawmakers heard testimony from William Taylor, Acting U.S. Ambassador to #Ukraine and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent."
Week at @ConstantVzw.org
will finish with public open Brunch.
