Digital Solidarity Networks started as a shared listing of tools, practices and readings for digital solidarity, conviviality and togetherness. In May and June 2021 we are organising 3 public moments for collective relearning.

For the first event, happening on Thursday 20 May, 15:00 -18:00 CEST, we will be joined by Dušan Barok, who will speak about Artist-Run Digital Networks and Community Work.

Together, we will be asking:

* How can we reconfigure digital networks across timelines and communities?

I'm still trying to get people to sign the petition https://www.change.org/p/president-hillman-the-mills-college-music-department-and-center-for-contemporary-music-must-be-protected

The Alumni Association asked me to write the letter, but I asked Charles Amirkhanian of Other Minds to write it instead. He got a lot of help from composer Maggi Payne (who you can hear on radio 3 tonight at 10) and then sent it to me.

I gave it to my spouse, who is a professional writer and editor, who did some work on it. Then an experienced campaigner had a go at it, then a member of music faculty, then the coalition had to vote on whether it would come from them. This may be the most complicated project I've managed. Anyway, please sign it.

I'm in free to attend talk/panel tonight about

5-7pm UK time

"Online Panel: Experimental publishing and alternative networked cultures

Convened by Ruth Blacksell and Lozana Rossenova with contributions from Karen Di Franco, Aymeric Mansoux, Marcell Mars, Tomislav Medak.

The emergence of experimental post-digital publishing over the past decade has opened up new modes and methods of design practice that have allowed for extended relationships between social and media environments. This panel discussion draws on historical as well as contemporary references to examine such approaches through a range of perspectives, spanning the fields of art, graphic design, digital media and software development. The projects and practices discussed in the presentations and subsequent Q&A will consider the shift away from fixed to more fluid forms of publication and acts of publishing that are contingent upon networked, interactive and hybrid (digital/analog) contexts."

Arnaud, Chun, Dustin, @l03s and myself got interviewed about our game/project What Remains in the VGS forum, as part of scrobins' A Homebrew Draws Near! blog series. Was super fun to write this together :D

Two days ago I was also invited by David Young of Royal Holloway University London to talk about the project. It was a very good chat (thanks to the input from Olga Goriunova, Alfie Bown, David and his students of course) on the relationship between video and .

For those interested in NES and archiving (I know, exotic combo), there is this interview/quiz me and @320x200 wrote a few years back, that we have received a question about: in which category do people who took the quiz usually fall?

We don't know (it's not a datamining operation), but we are curious :breadthink: If you did take the quiz and still remember, we'd love to hear! If you are an archivist and NES aficionado and can't wait to take the quiz, we'd also love to know your score 😍

(from #PoliticoEurope)

In awe reading Murray Bookchin in Post Scarcity Anarchism, 1965, about ecological and social diversity, renewable energy, liberatory technology and the climate crisis:

"It can be argued on very sound theoretical grounds that this growing blanket of carbon dioxide, by intercepting heat radiated from the earth, will lead to more destructive storm patterns and eventually to melting of the polar ice caps, rising sea levels, and the inundation of vast land areas."
