I have been streaming every Friday night on https://echo.lurk.org and will probably keep doing this for as long as I have records and the time to pick and play them.
Its a comfy little stream with a few listeners, knowing who listens and what they enjoy makes picking songs more direct.
Since I have never ran a successful poll on here, I will try again.
Next Friday the Theme of the stream should be:
do folks have any recommendations for resources on the nitty gritty of structuring a collective or cooperative?
we are already incorporated, so this is less about articles and more about:
* defining what it means to be a collective/coop member
* what is the role of a board in a collective/coop
* what's the difference b/t collective/coop
* example operating, decisionmaking policies
* relationship between collective/coop members and people who contribute that are not members

What You Should Know About Online Tools During the COVID-19 Crisis—EFF Deeplinks
Housebound advice from a long-term housebound person, boosts ok
I'm going to post a long thread on how to cope better if you're stuck indoors at the moment. I've been housebound by disability for a long while now, and sporadically housebound due to depression and agoraphobia before that. These are things that have improved how I deal with that. This is not gonna make houseboundness painless for you but it might help you cope. Disabled comrades are welcome to share their own advice to this thread.

i've put together a list of hundreds (!) of open source, experimental, and tiny tools for interactive, web, and game development
this rose out of my weird tools games class, where we have been talking about walled gardens, the politics and aesthetics that tools carry with them, the edges of “tool” and where it intersects with “game” or “playful media” and how much a tool can say about its maker
(but i also thought this resource might be particularly useful now ~)
Due to the current situation and public health concerns the event "Radio On the #Radio" will not be public in the physical space of Varia but will be STREAMED online through: https://stream.vvvvvvaria.org/ We'll start broadcasting at 20:30. Don't forget to tune in!

selves-organised event spamming (on datasets and interfaces)
Coming Wednesday, March 11, will mark the release of our digital publication Plotting Data: Acts of Collection & Omission. In this light, we organise an evening of discussions at #FramerFramed in #Amsterdam.
The event will host three rounds of conversations that will introduce various #datasets and ways of interfacing them.
Plotting Data was a series of workshops held by Cristina Cochior & Ruben van de Ven in 2019, which explored the biases and tensions within datasets that underlie systems for automated decision making. Discussions, presentations and performances fed into the creation of digital interfaces starting from the particularities of the datasets.
Two tables will be hosted by invited artists Julie Boschat Thorez & Sami Hammana, who will speak on their recent work with image collections in relation to the Mnemosyne Atlas and Nicolas Malevé, who will speak on his practical research into ImageNet, while the third table will give an overview of the publication.
The evening starts at 19.30, is free and in English, more information and registration on the Framer Framed website:
