"A Feminist Internet
How does a feminist server nurture shared realities for creatives and/or activists?
A feminist internet is a marginalized framework within the digital rights movement. What is the common ground, what are the differences? How can a technofeminist critique feed into the digital rights movement?
What are the tools for organizing our workflow in and around technofeminist infrastructures and what are the terms of participation/exclusivity?
How to sustain feminist servers in terms of resources?
Imagine a policy or an event that could empower your mission and collaboration with like-mind projects?"

The term "ethical licenses" has been used by Coraline Ada Ehmke and others to refer to licenses that expand the conditions of who can use software and for what purpose it is being used (see https://firstdonoharm.dev/ and https://ethicalsource.dev/licenses/).
Another one that is used is "3 freedom licenses", as a way to refer to the same idea basically, and it's 3 and not 4 because these licenses take out freedom 0 ("anyone can use the software for any purpose").
But this does not specifically hook into the fact of course that they have not been tested in court yet.
Call for participation for OFFDEM—the OFFLINE Developer European Meeting in Brussels.
Next to that we also will celebrate the launch of 👀Learning How to Walk While Catwalking 👀 , an API and toolkit made by the first year students of Experimental Publishing (XPUB) in the context of their trimester based Special Issues.
This launch takes place between 13:00 and 17:00 CET, both in person ✌️ (at Varia: Gouwstraat 3, Rotterdam) or online 🌐 (at https://issue.xpub.nl/16/)
More information can be found at:
Next week we will celebrate the (online) launch of 📗 🖥️ Vernaculars come to matter 🖥️📗, a publication around forms of vernacular languaging, software culture, and textual archives.
We are super proud to publish the work of 5 co-conspirators in which the vernacular appears at 💥 eye level in the reverse diasporic circulation of Dutch-Turkish street typography (Cengiz Mengüç); 💥 in the attitude of photo editing software such as ImageMagick, manifested as software culture (@automatist); 💥 as a way of doing, living, and working in the Philippines, appearing as the non-standard-English voice (Clara Balaguer); 💥 as a way to navigate the Leftove.rs archive of MayDay Rooms, where historial ephemera require a very particular attention (Rosemary Grennan); 💥 or as a continuous struggle with bureaucratic rigidity while transitioning gender or name (Ren Loren Britton).
Join the celebration on Friday 17 December between 19:00 and 20:30 (CET) at https://stream.vvvvvvaria.org, the contributors will be present to introduce their work!
I’m happy to announce the Drowning in Æther - Signal hunting bike rides.
The during the month of December I invite you to join me on a trip through the radio spectrum. We are going to hunt for as well as make audible signals of ghost satellites and satellite radio pirates hijacking abandoned military satellites. For the last couple of weeks, I have been assembling a mobile listening station, a cargo bike with a sound system, my antennas, and all the necessary equipment to hunt for satellite signals. During these collaborative bike rides, we try to sync up with the circadian rhythms of the satellites and explore the urban environment of Rotterdam to find the perfect spot to capture their radio signals.
Due to the current Covid situation, I’m planning multiple rides with small groups. The bikes will not only bring us to our listening spots but also help us to keep a healthy distance. So far, I scheduled the 4. & 5. of December as well as the 11. & 12. of December, but other spontaneous group rides during the month could be planned by contacting me.
If you are interested and want to receive updates, please sign up to the Drowning in Æther mailing list via this link:

I'm learning how to use Natural Language Processing nltk tool kit to make experimental poetry and writings. I hear it's really out-of-date though.
I also know the work of Allison Parrish which is brilliant! Anyone knows what I'm talking about or doing the same? Or could share your strategies to deal with massive frustration of learning it? lol

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 -> http://relearn.be/2021/
