alrighty, i'm starting "Bots as Digital Infrapunctures", a module by @ccl and @manetta


it's only beginning but it's already quite a curiosity to me.

"Informed by the work of scholar Bethany Nowviskie, Verhoeven asks for a rethinking of digital infrastructures in terms of capacity and care, by 'developing an appreciation for where it hurts, where the sense of pain is in the worlds that we inhabit and study' and creating small scale interventions which can enkindle transformation on a larger scale."

When I think of my discomfort with bots, I think of where it hurts, and with this frame, I wonder where this course will take me by the end of it.

I'll continue to share thoughts in this thread as I go through.

Some of you know I've started a blog called FOSS Academic ( I'm exploring life as an academic who tries to use as much free and open source software as possible. You know, being a lonely humanities Linux user at a university.

I'm writing to solicit questions people might have about being a FOSS Academic. Or maybe to solicit comments on the FOSS Academic Lifestyle Dream. Not that I know all the things, but I'm curious what questions people have about this area, if any.

We recently cleaned up our translations. We removed some un-used text and moved the FAQ page to the documentation. Translating CryptPad is now easier for contributors, a good time to have a look at the few languages that were started but never finished:
