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!
On the 8th of Feb, Hackers and Designers together with Read-in, me and @anglk will host a workshop on feminist strategies for searching in library catalogs @ the h&d studio in Amsterdam. More info here —-> https://hackersanddesigners.nl/s/Events/p/Workshop:_Repository_of_Feminist_Search_Strategies
When speaking about feminist search tools ...
... why feminist? what makes them feminist strategies?
... why a tool? what do we expect from a tool? a tool as utilitarian device?
What are different understandings of feminisms and tools in this room?
just adding the link to the #transmediale page here for completeness.
“Artist-researchers Roel Roscam Abbing (@rra) and Aymeric Mansoux (@320x200) likewise critique universal openness in their analysis of an emerging internet infrastructure created by and for users: the #Fediverse.”
starting at 11:30am today #Transmediale
Doing 2 #fediverse workshops today at #Transmediale with @rra, @320x200 and @lidia_p
We all have ideas for what is important to show off on the fediverse. And we will all share what makes it a special place to us.
I would really love to get more "crumbles" from you all to show or think about.
Do you have a special post you want random people to help answer?
Do you have art in a #PeerTube instance you want a bunch of strangers to comment on?
