I wrote up the 'Draw pictures with code(and make them move)' workshop from a couple of weeks ago, now in the Solarpunk Magic Computer Club zine collection!

You can write a sweet little animated sunset scene from scratch, no experience required :) https://solarpunk.cool/zines/draw-with-code #SVG

On externalized knowledge/know how: "When he was CEO, Eric Schmidt called multiple search results a 'bug'. Google 'should be able to give you the right answer just once. We should know what you meant.' When a Youtube video ends and autoplay selects another, that's Google attempt at a 'right' answer." Joanne McNeil, Lurking, p. 36

New text and video for my project about #networks now up online.

This is the third and final concept piece from the project, exploring digital networks and monocultures. From here I will dive deeper into the connected networks: forest, community, technology.

(thanks to @entreprecariat for your timely publication this week, which finished off a section for me!)

Now that online education is becoming semi-permanent, I'd like to advance a general principle we should articulate and defend: COMMUNICATIVE SELF-DETERMINATION. Some ideas:

"People used to talk about the internet as a place. The information superhighway. A frontier. The internet was something to get on. Even the desktop metaphor was in turn clarifying, then confusing: it helped people understand how a personal computer organizes information, while it invited a user to think of the experience as three-dimensional and spatial. Now people talk about the internet as something to talk to; it is someone." Joanne McNeil, Lurking, 17

"The role of consumer or worker has a modern edge, but userships is even less defined—what is traded, and the cost of it, is hard to see" Joanne McNeil, Lurking, 8
