in solidarity with against all corruption in Lebabon . Today in Dam Square starting at noon

there were some things i ddn't knew about raspberry pis:

"Linux runs on that ARM CPU, we know that, but we might be surprised to learn that Linux on this device is only a second class citizen. The GPU cores run a real time operating system called ThreadX. This operating system is closed source and rules the system without the open source Linux Kernel being aware of it."

and guess who bought the ThreadX operating system last april?

Although I have many reservations concerning the BBC - how programming literacy is used as a marketing strategy, the project partnership with tech giants, the suitability of microcontrollers as a programming environment for beginners, ... - i found myself challenged while started working with it, hence decide to put my notes and and exercises online:

UPSETTING SETTINGS - XPUB 2019 🥳🤖
12-13.07.2019 + + !
UBIK, S/ASH GA\\ERY in

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!

A year ago I tried learning ActivityPub, and more or less failed. I was confounded by a spec that was so abstract I couldn't make heads or tails of it. Turns out I was missing some key things.

I have written a guide to learning about ActivityPub that I wish existed a year ago when I first set out to learn how to write social media servers that conform to the spec:

"We, the professors, tutors and lecturers of Dutch art academies declare to stand for academic freedom and independence, now that our essential core values are under attack with the appeal to report ‘indoctrination in education’ by the Renaissance Institute of the Forum voor Democratie (FVD), which was launched last March 12.

March 15, more than 40,000 teachers, including some of our colleagues of Dutch art academies, were protesting at the Malieveld in The Hague for better and more investment in education and against the increasing work pressure. The pressure has elevated dramatically now that autonomy in the classroom is at stake. History demonstrates that threats, intimidation, and documentation of people for who or what they are and believe in can have terrible consequences. We therefore reject the public persecution of teachers and academics as a measure to ‘structurally change and improve education’.
