A lovely initiative and very comprehensive index of Cyberfeminist works from the early 90s to today:

"Cyberfeminism Index is an in-progress online collection of resources for techno-critical works from 1990–2020, gathered and facilitated by Mindy Seu."

I’m giving an introduction to the fediverse today as a part of:

De-platform-ization, Ethics and Alternative Social Media


The (livestreamed) event starts at 18:00CET and I go on at 19:35

(if your reading this here you probably don’t need a fediverse introduction but maybe it will make you laugh when I get something mixed up)

Oh and @lidia_p and @ccl are also giving a talk about Varia (the group behind https://post.lurk.org) before me at 18:40

@despens I didn't know about this metaphor but it seems appropriate because uncleaned datasets do not give the results desired by those wishing to use it, and are therefore in conflict with their expectations and in need of reconciliation (a (not so) self-fulfilling prophecy in the making) :www_server:

Nice summary of the small web by @soapdog: https://twitter.com/soapdog/status/1306187476969705473

One implication: in the vein of being the change you want to see in the world, all us 'enlightened' folks need to play with a lot more bespoke browsers and user agents and protocols. It's the only way to carve out an oasis in the desert of monopolies and winner-takes-all.

I recently replaced the link to my email everywhere on my website with one to this 'contact' page: http://akkartik.name/contact

This Friday at 17:00 CEST I'll join AAA Software Collective and Jonas Frankki to talk about video game utopias and playable political satire. You can watch and chat with us here ->
