If you're in Rotterdam this July (22nd-25th), keep reading!

Together with Santiago Pinyol and Luke Murphy we're organizing this year's edition of Relearn in and around the city.
Relearn is an intensive IRL three day collective learning experiment with as many teachers as participants from all backgrounds and disciplines to learn from-and-teach each other, beyond the traditional paradigms of education from an interest in free culture and practices of care.

This year's edition will take place in and focus on Rotterdam. We aim to explore the importance of self-organisation and the use of experimental tools to build alternative systems and economies within the urban fabric of Rotterdam.
Apply by the 30th of June! Find the full text of the open call here ->

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 3rd event, happening on Thursday 10 June, 15:00-18:00 CEST, we will be joined by The Institute for Technology in the Public Interest (Miriyam Aouragh, Seda GΓΌrses, Femke Snelting, Helen Pritchard) who will speak about infrables.

β€œInfrables make negative use-cases and un-fixing bug reports as a solidary praxis. They are articulations of what extractive digital infrastructures are, and what they are doing. What infrables can we tell to take-down Big Tech narratives and undo their violences? (...) Our contribution to the Digital Solidarity Network conversations will be a series of infrables to be reworked and retold.”

Dear readers,

the Nourishing Network goes to sleep now!

Over the last four months we published 12 articles that crossed paths of multiple RSS readers and Fediverse feeds. 389 envelopes have been send out using the postal network of Europe! We hope you enjoyed the readings and the feed-forwarding of the extra copies of the articles to friends, colleagues, neighbors or other peers.

A snippet from today's Minimal Viable Learning ...

---Stretching activity (a)synchronous maintenance---

1. Gather on a pad with as many people as possible.

2. Pick one line, share the linenumber with everyone.

3. Select a unique letter. Write it below to make sure that everyone has selected another letter.

4. Start to write a the letter on the line, press the key for 10 seconds.

5. Everyone starts at 3, someone is counting.... 1.... 2.... 3!

Goal: Obfuscate the operational transformation/conflict resolution and achieve identity morphing!

Join new special issue launch "I Don’t Know Where We’re Going, But β€” A Local Network City Quest"!

FREE ticket + HOWTO

(in partnership with + guidance of @lidia_p)

Tomorrow from 11:00-17:00 @ccl and I will be hosting a session around one of the research trajectories in Varia: Minimal Viable Learning

The session is part of the Reclaiming Digital Infrastructures series initiated by Constant and KASK Gent. Join us for discussions and stretching acts around etherpads, plain text, minimal computing, learning environments, padtiquettes, user-spaces, a minifesto and magic words.

How do minimal viable softwares enable a multitude of practices, while considering how technical learning environments can be viable for different contexts?

@manetta and I have been working on a small online module about as digital for @cc_utrecht, where the latter is a term that draws attention to stress points in infrastructures and stimulates thinking about how to intervene. We welcome feedback and thoughts on it, it is a work that will continue in different ways.

Reputation-based federation

Instances you're closer to (interact with more) have higher reputation. Instances with users that your users thumb down/block a lot have lower reputation. Instances that are blocked by your high-rep instances have v low reputation.

Once a low threshold is hit, admin is asked if they want to mute/defed from the low rep instance.

Reputation isn't global, you can't measure the 'overall' rep of an instance, it's all relative to the instance you're looking from.
