Palantir moving in on UK & EU healthcare data is some straight up Shock Doctrine bullshit.
We are delighted to receive $10K in funding from @mozilla this week. We pitched CryptPad to the MOSS Open Source Seed Award back in February at #FOSDEM. We will use these funds to improve loading times.
COVID-19 long quote
📄 Writing Theory During a Pandemic
by João Florêncio
Over two decades after Paula Treichler wrote the landmark book How to Have Theory In an Epidemic - a critical reflection on the intertwined clinical and cultural dimensions of the AIDS crisis - some academic colleagues, even some in the Humanities, appear to still insist that no theory can be produced about an epidemic during an epidemic and that all we should do is wait for our turn. In so doing, they unwittingly endorse the right-wing narrative that, over the last few years, has been painting the Arts and Humanities as useless disciplines led by “radical lefties” intended on using public funds in order to simply be a nuisance to the status quo. According to that narrative and its technocratic neoliberal ideology, the only useful knowledge is the knowledge of “Science.” Yet, as the responses to COVID-19 are already showing - as the responses to AIDS had already shown - and as any medical humanities scholar will confirm, no epidemic is a purely medical event capable of being solely understood by means of graphs and data sets.
