I've put in some work, started my own instance(s), followed, unfollowed, moderated, failed and kept going.

no space or person or project is perfect, but I'm grateful to each and everyone who left kind words of appreciation, who made an effort to respond, helped, criticised with civility, sent hugs, to me or anyone in the world!

all we need is love (and intelligence. and revolution, and some fun).

peace, and happy birthday, fediverse.

I am conscious that the conversation about alternative or open source technology can be missed by a broader audience, including many artists and arts organisations that I know. So I wrote an article about the ethical, social and environmental reasons to use these technologies. It has been published in the national newspaper VAN ("Visual Artists News sheet") run by Visual Artists Ireland

Influenced by #AMRO @servus and @michal among others.

Online version coming soon

In the Feminist Hack Meeting #1 @mara introduced us to mailing lists migration with Mailman. The migration of feminist lists hosted by the systerserver project was realised successfully and we went through the 'pain' all together! Here are some photos/screenshots from that day.

Thanks to all the participants who joined!

Received my first printed copy of 'A Nourishing Network' today, and had a chance to read it this evening.

This is a wonderful object and a brilliant project. I'm still trying to decide who to send my spare copy to.

Kris De Decker (of Low Tech Magazine) presents the possibilities of low-energy, low-tech wireless networks. He always writes well and this one is particularly good.

They all demonstrate that art can play an important role in imagining and producing a real quite different from what is currently hegemonic …”

"A feminist perspective on data science: The Feminist Search Tool (text by @anglk)

This essay is a reflection on the development of a feminist search tool and my involvement in its technical and conceptual aspects. It refers to the notion of feminist critical computing in public infrastructures and specifically digital libraries. It brings to light the frictions between the technical aspects of a digital infrastructure and the societal issues it comes to address. This essay studies one1 of the prototypes of the Feminist Search Tool (FST), a collective artistic project that explores ways of engaging with items of digital library catalogues and systems of categorization2. The specific FST I worked on is a digital visualization tool that engages with the collection of the International Homo/Lesbian Information center and Archive (IHLIA) using terms from their Homosaurus, a standalone international LGBTQ linked data vocabulary that is used to describe their collection3. This essay highlights the tensions between technical restrictions and research questions within the working group of the FST."
