Call for

(policyreview.info/node/1541) for the of systems (policyreview.info/glossary) - a project aimed at building a shared vocabulary on the social, technical,
economic, political aspects of decentralised, distributed or sovereign technologies.
We invite contributions on the emancipatory, counter-hegemonic, subversive potential of digital technologies at the intersection of
computer science, law philosophy, social sciences. The Glossary is a long-term collaborative project which will keep evolving over time,
enriched periodically with more terms and open to new contributors. Its scope is to build a foundational vocabulary for academic and
non-academic discourse on technologies, sociotechnical systems and practices of decentralisation.
We invite proposals for new terms in the form of short abstracts (max. 200 words) to be later developed into a short glossary entry. The
compiled entries will be collected in a special section of the Internet Policy Review. (policyreview.info/)

For expression of interest email to: v.ferrari@uva.nl - by the 21st of March

@ccl @then reminds me of these gifs i made when visiting a family friend's beach house.

i think when i tried to watch into it, it had a recording of the blues brothers done on top of it, so i couldnt watch the whole movie

a bit of a flash warning in case

Once you spend enough time with servers, sysadmin and making sense of it, eventually you try to find a consistent naming scheme for hostnames and such.

Lurkfriends, what's your system for coming up with server names?

I put out a podcast called Artists and Hackers. Episode 3 is out now: Can a Programming Language be a Radical Community? It's on the javascript library p5.js and how they support and nurture their community of contributors


"a community is multiple entities effectively resonating within and experiencing a shared register of world-making"

discomfort… and other ways to resist totalitarian zoomification."

So this morning I attended a lovely workshop led by Elodie and my dear fellow lurker @wendy! The workshop was "Speculating on networked interdependencies and relationality"

In discussion about federated spaces (ref mastodon: lurk, merveilles, etc.) and speculative fiction (ref octavia butler), we discussed the speculative potentials of fediverse by trying to think through what creating our own instances on it.

it was truly a joy to participate in conversations with people from all different countries, as well as different points on our familiarity on these topics (such as, what even is a domain or a server, and what would it mean to block either). For me, its been like a month and a half I learn, one member in my small group had years of experience, another had none! We helped each other fill in gaps, think critically, and had a fun time dreaming of something new.

join us for the next session! "Minimal Viable Learning" led by VARIA autonomousdesign.hotglue.me/re

In this live session Dennis and Danny will take you through the steps to recreate a simple as designed by Tetsuo Kogawa. We will cover the actual construction of the transmitter, what to transmit and how to receive the signal.

19:00-21:00 CET
Inspired by the current theme Wireless Imagination, this selection brings together some of the topics that have inspired Agustina over the last few years of activity - The architecture of air, and alternative means of .

indoor gardening advice wanted 

I'm planning my on a small south-facing glassed balcony, essentially a greenhouse. It will likely get a dry and arid climate during summer so I'm looking at low maintenance irrigation techniques. Anyone have experience with buried clay pots or ollas?

If anyone has suggestions for /#smalltech web zines that would be! Much appreciated! I saw a neocities webring for low-tech sites but I feel like I don't find anything that quite fits otherwise unless it's spontaneously on fedi
--> specifically a website built or framed around using as low-tech as one could manage

Today I announced a new mentoring programme for Black artists in the West Midlands (UK) who want to explore the creative potential of live coding. Details are here: algo-afro-futures.lurk.org/

In short four participants will get mentoring in all things live coding from me and @yaxu over four sessions and will be given a fee of £100 per session attended.

I know my reach on the fediverse is small so if you know anyone who could benefit from this please pass it on to them
