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!

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 constantvzw.org/site/RDI-3-Min.

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.

Thoughts?
