"Generalmente uno divaga un poco passando da una occupazione all'altra. Cominciando il nuovo lavoro, raramente è molto attento e impegnato; la sua mente, come si usa dire, non si applica, e per qualche tempo si balocca anziché applicarsi allo scopo."
Adamo Smith sul #multitasking
Publication launch event in Rotterdam
"In our activity as artists, designers and researchers working with and around free/libre open source technology based projects, we often encounter situations where collective authorship gives rise to complicated interrelationships of ownership. Specifically, these involve the practical aspects of care, maintenance, documentation and overall commitment. "
At the same time there will be a launch of the #fediverse themed edition of the Pervasive Labour Union Zine with contributions from @lidia_p @decentral1se @eliotberriot @Gargron @entreprecariat @guimachiavelli and more

Great news for those who missed out on Floppy Totaal: Magnetic Flux. We just added a +/- 2250 word report of the day to our website. Check it out over here: http://www.floppytotaal.org/report.html
This Saturday at Varia (#rotterdam #nl) we present the outcomes of a big choral project: the second issue of #Networks of One's Own — a periodic para-nodal publication that is collectively written within a network.
API critique, death of the API, #digitalmethods
"Recently Facebook officially ended its Pages API and has 'replaced' it with the Social Science One project which curates data sets for researchers. Studying engagement on Russian disinformation pages, or on those of the Alt Right, have become improbable because post engagement measures are no longer available. Instagram shut down its API years ago, so projects such as Selfie City no longer can be undertaken, unless one scrapes data. Twitter has disabled certain data fields such as tweet time zone, thereby making it unlikely to continue to map the Australian Twittersphere, to take just one example. There is an API graveyard, and those discontinued services were once the starting point of both social research as well as social media critique. There is a great deal of missing data as well, because the aforementioned Russian disinformation pages and many others have been removed. "
