Open Call for contributions
Eclectic Tech Carnival 2019
8 - 13 October in Athens, Greece
Halt and Catch Fire
/ETC is a gathering of feminists, who critically use/study/share/improve everyday information technologies in the context of the free software and open hardware movements.
We strongly believe that an empowering event is one in which everyone actively contributes to its realization. For this reason, we would love to receive plenty of suggestions for activities, presentations, workshops etcetera.
We invite you, women and FNTI persons (females, non-binaries, trans, intersexuals) to kindly submit your proposal by Monday, 2 September 2019, at whatever time zone is comfortable for you.
Please send an email to this address:
Looking forward to seeing you in Athens!

Upsetting Settings presents graduation projects initiated by Alexander Roidl, Alice Strete, Angeliki Diakrousi, Joca van der Horst, Natasha Berting, and Zalán Szakács. The concept of this exhibition arises from the idea of the default setting, a situation in which a specific mode of interaction is selected automatically, pre-configured to work out of the box without the need to tinker with its underlying apparatus. Every system comes with default settings predefined by its creators, and most of the time, these settings remain unchanged by us, the users of such systems. These defaults do not represent our needs but are possibly the materialisation of biases from the system's makers, from corporate or political interests, from a society at large. The projects engage with the concept of default modes and propose interventions in their core structure/source/root so as to start thinking collectively about better places from which to begin. You are invited to become root users, active listeners, smart speakers, intentional eaters, counter trolls, sensorial spectators!
Due to my current high-stress period of time and lack of appetite, I find myself surprisingly engaging deeper with my research in that I’ve slowly become an easy target for precisely the products I’m advocating against. #mindblown
