Time for a 'lil #introduction. My name is Silvio, I'm Italian but I live in the Netherlands. In the past I researched artistic "post-digital" publishing, I wrote about the entrepreneurial ideology in relation to precarity, and did a lot of other stuff such as graphic design, web development, installations, net art, zines, weird tools, videoclips… I'm starting to suspect that consistency is not among my core skills
Right now I'm mostly busy documenting and understanding a sense of disillusionment that seems to permeate the design field.
Currently, I'm an assistant professor in design theory and criticism at the Center for Other Worlds in Lisbon (https://otherworlds.pt/) and I'm part of varia.zone, a lovely space dedicated to everyday technology.
While writing about the past and the present of computer usership, I amassed a mastodontic year-long thread. That was fun :) https://post.lurk.org/web/statuses/105695998969010498

@flowen @joak ahah, I guess it's a common issue. Research: if you mean the design & disillusion one here's a series of essays on the subject: https://networkcultures.org/entreprecariat/on-design-and-disillusion/ and in the blog you find other writings :)
Welcome to post.lurk.org, an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
