I hate this reality. If you thought it couldn't get worse than @UEFA@twitter.com here's the EU's goon squad whose literal job is making sure people drown in the Mediterranean.

Trying to transition my biggest project to Poetry (and ) but it's not going as smoothly as I hoped.

Racket drama 

"people have been confiding in me—an internet stranger—because they are plainly terri­fied of Felleisen and the conse­quences he will orches­trate if they speak out against him. Most of them are in acad­emia or PL research. A number of them are already in a more vulner­able posi­tion because of their nation­ality, gender or sexual iden­tity, etc."

That sucks.

Where do you see / share calls for interesting research/practice conferences/workshop events around computational culture etc? I fear I'm missing out on some interesting events/discussions (and mailing lists)..

Tomorrow and Tuesday, the Computing within LIMITS workshop takes place.

I'm presenting a paper based on a discussion on Mastodon, started by @calcifer about terms related to sustainability and computing. I'm starting with a discussion of 3 historical terms from the 70s, rooted in anarchism, anti-technocratic critique and human-scale technologies, after which I dive into LIMITS related and grass roots terms, ideas and their associated practices.

Link to paper: computingwithinlimits.org/2021

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:

Really appreciated this post on being aware (and critical) of your default settings in software generally and GIS software specifically. It makes me think of all the issues introduced by Excel and such.
