EA will release a new "Eco Lifestyle" for The Sims, and it's pretty funny for a game so focused on consumerism. Very illustrative of how "green" is seen by some as just another niche market.

When Nestlé is selling organic products, they're not doing anything different. "Eco" as an expansion pack to an unchallenged underlying model.

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 and how these are getting entangled with 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 (networkcultures.org/blog/publi)
