About ethics on funding, would you be open to get funds and become a fellow at Bill&Melinda Gates, Chan Zuckerberg or any similar foundation?
How could you justify getting support from groups associated to tons of unethical practices?
(No, I didn't get any found from them, pure curiosity mainly when see open source and open science projects announcing the grants/supports...)

I'm a "tech guy" on a lot of teams. My major skill is confidence. If I don't know how to do something, I'll type whatever keywords I can think of into DuckDuckGo and keep trying things until they work. I usually have no idea what I'm doing before starting on a new task. I like doing things I haven't done before.

If you can search the web and can be comfortable with some ambiguity, you could do this too.

A lot of women have been told this approach is insufficient. That was a lie to oppress you.

Can anyone point me towards research on 'ritual' and 'online spaces'? How can 'ritual', usually tied with spectacle, performance, and physical presence in a group, be facilitated through online space/s, where bodies are not physically in the same space?

Any ideas, thoughts, pointers to essays or books greatly appreciated!

(plz boost)

After all this talking, we have a nightline with remote performances and machinic sounds. Additionally, we decided to transform the festival exhibition into an online journey through artistic projects lost in a garden of clouds with social spaces and platforms to exchange ideas and comments.

The #NetworkMusicFestival #OpenCall ends tomorrow! If you're doing something with networks and music, you can submit a performance, a workshop or an "other" idea.
For workshops, we're interested not only in how to use tools, but how to build community and do organisations around networks/the internet/ etc and would love to hear from community music groups and the like. Please submit!

why fund art?

because many people often feel/say things like:

"I would be lost without music."

If you were asking for voluntary information to track diversity at an international event and you wanted to see if people from countries that would normally be excluded by fortress #europe were responding? How would you phrase that question?
