DEADLINE EXTENSION // CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

After three years of (semi) regular existence, it is now high-time that the Pervasive Labour Union zine takes a very close look at the universe of the alternatives to corporate social networks.

What do these alternatives look like? What are the requirements of a 'true' alternative?
The Pervasive Labour Union zine already broached some of these topics on its Special Issue with the Homebrew Server Club on . To follow the HBSC’s strategy, a premium should be put on alternative approaches, not on any specific alternative apps.
We need social networking solutions based on open standards that are able to communicate among themselves, regardless of the platform being used.

Which protocols can and are being developed to achieve interoperability between the different alternatives? How do scale and trust influence the field? What are the forces at play within this realm and how to engage with them?
With this issue, we propose not only to collect a field guide of sorts, but also to open up the discussion on the alternatives and how to tackle the challenges posed by network effects, scalability and financial viability.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: March 15th

It's a new year! Dennis (de Bel) is back, the window is broken and l'intolerant #18 is out. Enough reasons to come together and have a drink.

This Friday, the 11th of January, from 19:30, Varia opens its doors for some special new year's drinks and some fitting music.

Woodstone Kugelblitz will also be presenting the latest issue of L'Intolerant #18: A Really Useful Cookbook.

Almost everyone is welcome and the entrance is free. However, a voluntary donation of 5 euros will help us replace our window and is greatly appreciated!

See you there!

What did time look like before the uniformity brought by networked devices? Is the circadian rhythm obsolete? How is software shaping and in turn being shaped by different understandings of temporality? What if wasting time on videogames is actually a productive and edifying habit?

With a remote contribution by Italian designer Michele Galluzzo, and together with Dutch designer Rik Laging, “neurophysical designer” Luis Rodil-Fernández, a delegation of the Techno-Galactic Guide to Software Observation (Hans Lammerant, Mia Melvaer and Martino Morandi) and XPUB (the Experimental Publishing program of the Piet Zwart Institute), we will tackle these and more questions during an evening dedicated both to the malleability and rigidity of time.

Tomorrow evening, wednesday 31 October 19:00-21:00, Life Hacks: Space at #Varia in #Rotterdam, first public event as part of a collaboration between #HNI @entreprecariat and #XPUB. Show more

This Sunday, the 4th of November, me and Lucia Dossin will be presenting our workshop "Beerpong or Voltaire?" as part of Culturele Zondag - Utrecht Digitaal.

"Beerpong or Voltaire?" seeks to explain, without the use of computers and to a general audience, how LDA (a topic modeling algorithm used for clustering) can be implemented to infer a user's psychological traits on the basis of her/his Facebook likes.
We will finish the workshop with a discussion around the political, social and economical consequences of these processes and how they might directly impact our daily lives.

Join us either at 13h30, for the 1st session, or at 15h30, for the 2nd session - Hope to see you there!
