One of the most important roles for artists and creators of software today is to imagine and promote forms of cultural practice outside of corporate enclosure.

Really happy to share this "live" in the browser rather than via a video stream with terrible compression.

@exquisitecorp awkward to shill my own shit, but cabal is like irc but easier to get into https://cabal.chat

since it's p2p you can get the backlog / chat that happened while you were offline, when you sync up with someone else. you can also write messages & read history even w/o internet (incl. shitty internet ofc)

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?

Register by writing a short mail to: peter@constantvzw.org

Today I announced a new mentoring programme for Black artists in the West Midlands (UK) who want to explore the creative potential of live coding. Details are here: algo-afro-futures.lurk.org/

In short four participants will get mentoring in all things live coding from me and @yaxu over four sessions and will be given a fee of £100 per session attended.

I know my reach on the fediverse is small so if you know anyone who could benefit from this please pass it on to them
