New interactive fiction and experimental publishing project released on #itchio! Hone your bluffing skills and gather poker chips in the hope of winning a luxury prize that might help pay your rent this month, in a secret, one-person mission to infiltrate the 1%. I hope you enjoy reading/playing :)
I’ve extended the deadline for the quarantine food zine until the 26th of April, so if you have something to share, share away! https://zine.alicestrete.me/
Dear losers of the radio genre poll,
I understand what its like to be the eternal runner up but let's unite tonight in our love for the unknown.
Tapes bought over the years during events. Records that were found in the back of thrift stores, markets and dusty attics.
Tune in tonight and you might find a track to be on the tip of ones tongue.
For this show, I will write an occasional message about a song in our chat/xmpp hangout

..::We hope this email finds you well - a radio drama series ::..
Writing an email is not dissimilar to writing a script. Wrapping a message in paratextual elements means to imagine how the reader on the receiving end will interpret it. Whether it shows enough enthusiasm!!! If a bit of softening is needed ;-) Or an apology to excuse the lack of immediacy, sorry about that. These elements determine the tone with which the email will be read in the person's mind (...)

open call for food zine
In the midst of our collective quarantine, I’m fighting against my lack of motivation by putting out an open call for a zine. My relationship with food/eating/cooking has changed dramatically in these weeks of physical distancing, and I want to document my experience alongside that of others. Looking for text, images, lists, recipes, for a digital zine which will be shared freely. Please share this fwd. More info here: https://zine.alicestrete.me/
What Remains is at #ZKM for 3 months
They really went full-on with the lets-make-it-look-like-some-cosy-living-room-to-play-some-NES-game-and-chill option. Pretty cool
(and some of @l03s essays that we used to develop the story got printed for the occasion)
Next weekend Varia will host a meeting on feminist servers as part of a series called Feminist Hack Meetings.
Let's talk about feminist servers! In this meeting, we invite you to discuss questions like:
What does it mean for a server to be feminist, and how could it look like? What and who does it serve? What does it take to create and maintain it?
We would like to map and draw collectively our ideas and consider the possibility of setting up a feminist server at Varia, as a base for our practice.
We will bring material (like RPis and computers) to start experimenting and trying things out.
It is time for a new special issue of the Pervasive Labour Union zine! This issue, prepared by the collective Precademics 85.42.1, brings experiences of precarity in Greek academia to the fore.
"This is an attention-seeking act of Greek academic unions to make public and visible the precarious conditions they find themselves in. Far from being an academic aporia by our Greek colleagues, this is the past and future of academia itself." Leandros Kyriakopoulos
New essay: Seven theses on the Fediverse and the becoming of FLOSS
Recently, @rra and I have been working on an essay highlighting questions about the #Fediverse and how these are getting entangled with #FLOSS practices. From software production to structure and governance within alternative social media, online communities and politics.
The text follows a multi theses model, to map the different things we've been looking at and publish the current state of our research.
It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (https://networkcultures.org/blog/publication/the-eternal-network)
Feedback welcome. We're planning to publish an online version with more references!
Welcome to post.lurk.org, an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
