🚧 almanac.computer PSA: 100% Planned Maintenance 🚧
The Quandl API that provided stock market data for Cosmic Commodity Charts has shut down its free tier. (I did scrape everything before leaving so I can re-program the charts 👈😏)
There are a number of improvements that I have been meaning to make to the almanac.computer (e.g. bots, jupyter notebooks, new widgets) so now seems like a good time to pause it after nearly 3 years and do some maintenance and development.

promo: new design journal/newsletter
At the Center for Other Worlds we're finally launching Other Worlds, COW's shapeshifting journal for design research, criticism and transformation. Other Worlds (OW) aims at making the social, political, cultural and technical complexities surrounding design practices legible and, thus, mutable.
What other worlds, exactly? Those that have been traditionally ignored, neglected or silenced in the past, as well as those that are overlooked today: non-Western communities negotiating their own set of values through practice; alternative rationalities emerged in the West but overshadowed by the instrumental reason; technosocial environments blossoming at the periphery of platform empires, semi-visible modes of organization that oppose or sustain official institutions.
OW hosts articles, interviews, short essays and all the cultural production that doesn’t fit neither the fast-paced, volatile design media promotional machine nor the necessarily slow and lengthy process of scholarly publishing. In this way, we hope to address urgent issues, without sacrificing rigor and depth.
OW's initial form is that of a newsletter. Follow this link to find more information and to subscribe: https://buttondown.email/otherworlds
Do you feel like you have OW same energy? Then, don't hesitate to get in touch!

"We need to get involved in the casino layer of the web, but to turn it into a social, political, and economic liability, not to fix it and make it work for us. We all have to do things we don’t like or don’t want to in capitalist society: this is very different to actively promoting and shilling for capitalism."
Welcome to post.lurk.org, an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
