Lurk instance is well represented, @rra is there, in paper session #3, with a discussion on degrowth and ICT, focusing on Low Tech Magazine's design choices and most importantly, why it sometimes goes offline:
14 - 15 June, from 16.00 - 20.30 CEST
Excited to walkthrough my virtual studio with the audiences. This time I will talk about diagramming practice & coded images. #screenwalk is hosted by The Photographers’ Gallery, UK and Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland. Come and join us 🙂

Welcome to post.lurk.org, an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
