@frainz fictional also good for starting a discussion around it!

@h oh wow thank you, going through them now!

Looking for some nice examples of people tinkering with simple electronic devices (household objects/toys etc) to share and discuss with students, the more feminist/non-Eurocentric spaces/artists the better!

We're happy to announce that we just started to work on three new interdependent online resources: the Damaged Earth Catalog, the Permacomputing wiki, and the permacomputing workshop series!


Damaged Earth Catalog

A growing online catalog of the different terms in circulation, used by communities of practice, in relation to computing and network infrastructure informed by ecological ethics, degrowth, resilience, repair, and minimalism. Currently developed by @l03s as part of her PhD research.



Permacomputing wiki

A new wiki about permacomputing that aims to expose its principles, present and discuss the concepts and jargon required to engage with permacomputing, and maintain a repository of related projects. Currently facilitated by @viznut and @320x200 open for contributors!



Permacomputing in the Arts

A workshop series that will be developed throughout end-2022 and 2023 as an onboarding course for permacomputing practices in art an design. The workshops will be made available as an Open Educational Resource. Developed by @320x200 as part of a postdoc research on the topic.

Hunting Mosquitos explores urban sound technologies and the social and political implications of their use. Specifically, it examines the 'Mosquito alarm'', a technology used in public places in Rotterdam that emits high-frequency sounds, audible only to young people and experienced as unpleasant, to deter them from loitering in hangouts after complaints by of noise 'disturbing' residents...
