The revolution of behavioral patterns is often sold in terms of convenience, namely less work. Less work means less decisions to make. Those decisions are not magically disappearing, but are simply delegated to an external entity that takes them automatically. In fact, we can define convenience as automated know-how or automated decision-making. We shouldn't consider this delegation of choice as something intrinsically bad, otherwise we would end up condemning the computer for its main feature: programmability. Instead, we should discern between two types of convenience: autonomous convenience and heteronomous convenience. In the former, the knowledge necessary to take the decision is accessible and modifiable. In the latter, such knowledge is opaque.

Let's consider two ways of producing a curated feed. The first one involves RSS, a standardized, computer-readable format to gather various content sources. The user manually collects the feeds they want to follow in a list that remains accessible and transformable. The display criteria is generally chronological. Thus, an RSS feed incorporates the user's knowledge of the sources and automatizes the know-how of going through the blogs individually. Indeed, less work. In this case, it is fair to speak of autonomous convenience.

Manila 8:00–9:45 GMT+8

tune in:
varia.zone/en/wbgs-archipelagi

This radio broadcast is the result of conversations and working relationships that navigate the concept of what an archipelagic construction could mean, in terms of organization, belonging, and self. It was constructed between an archipelago of friends such as but not limited to Angeliki, Clara, Chung, and Reinaart.

This radio broadcast departs from conversations about the essay Sketches of Archipelagic Poetics of Postcolonial Belonging by maryamdeluz and Marco Cuevas-Hewitt. The essay is an island of a mutual aid anarchozine package compiled by EtnikoBandido. (...)

Implicancies #12.4

What energy is there after damage is done? How do we de-normalize and destabilize damage, rather than trying to fix it? A response to the workshop "Queering Damage" by our guest @hp

The third public of Implicancies will be on air today, THU: 28/5 at 16:00h CEST/UTC+2!

The third broadcast is a mystery, a myth, a speculation, an insecurity, a poem perhaps.

This web-audio interface addresses ways of listening to certain female-sounding voices that are perceived as inappropriate - because of the quality of their sound, their gender, the medium's distortions but also stereotypes and collective memories that they often awake. These are verbal expressions that have been associated with forms of 'monstrosity' since ancient times. You are welcome to contribute with your voices; to record yourselves, expressing your thoughts and choose a type of distortion to participate in forming new imaginaries around a technologically-mediated collective voice, which through its monstrosity can reveal other forms of speech.

The interface will be part of my performance 'Radio-active Monstrosities' under NL_CL #2: Flesh: instrumentinventors.org/event/.

open call for food zine 

In the midst of our collective quarantine, I’m fighting against my lack of motivation by putting out an open call for a zine. My relationship with food/eating/cooking has changed dramatically in these weeks of physical distancing, and I want to document my experience alongside that of others. Looking for text, images, lists, recipes, for a digital zine which will be shared freely. Please share this fwd. More info here: https://zine.alicestrete.me/

I have been streaming every Friday night on echo.lurk.org and will probably keep doing this for as long as I have records and the time to pick and play them.

Its a comfy little stream with a few listeners, knowing who listens and what they enjoy makes picking songs more direct.

Since I have never ran a successful poll on here, I will try again.
Next Friday the Theme of the stream should be:
