Open call for ideas: Open source agriculture workshop
The P2P Lab is happy to announce the launch of “Open source agriculture: Co-create with Tzoumakers” , celebrating the gathering of designers, makers and farmers who are adapting to the digitised world. The workshop will be hosted at the rural makerspace “Tzoumakers”, which is located in NW Greece.
"In this paper we presented Cwtch, a protocol for building metadata resistant applications based on Ricochet. The protocol solves a number of open problems with contemporary metadata resistant designs, providing asynchronous, anonymous multi-party communication through the use of untrusted,
We have released an open source prototype of Cwtch which can be found at https://cwtch.im/ ."
"Hedge funds and asset managers scraping the web for investment purposes represented 5% of all Internet traffic in 2018, and is expected to increase rapidly. As investors look for new ways to beat the market, total spending on web scraping for investment purposes is expected to exceed $1.8 billion by 2020."

DEADLINE EXTENSION // CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
After three years of (semi) regular existence, it is now high-time that the Pervasive Labour Union zine takes a very close look at the universe of the alternatives to corporate social networks.
What do these alternatives look like? What are the requirements of a 'true' alternative?
The Pervasive Labour Union zine already broached some of these topics on its Special Issue with the Homebrew Server Club on #XMPP. To follow the HBSC’s strategy, a premium should be put on alternative approaches, not on any specific alternative apps.
We need #federated social networking solutions based on open standards that are able to communicate among themselves, regardless of the platform being used.
Which protocols can and are being developed to achieve interoperability between the different alternatives? How do scale and trust influence the field? What are the forces at play within this realm and how to engage with them?
With this issue, we propose not only to collect a field guide of sorts, but also to open up the discussion on the alternatives and how to tackle the challenges posed by network effects, scalability and financial viability.
EXTENDED DEADLINE: March 15th

Call for Feminist Tech Fellows Show more
The #feminist #tech fellows are #artists, #writers, #activists, #technologists, #creatives – who set out to explore alternative digital futures. Futures in which safe, equitable participation in the connected world is the norm. Futures in which people of all genders and cultural backgrounds are supported to influence and create tools and concepts for digital interactions.
With the fellowships we strive to explore new narratives that counter dominant big tech visions. We want to speculate what feminist technologies look like and come up with tools that help us to challenge existing patterns and to embrace diversity. We want to shine a light on people who develop those projects and get insights into their approaches.
The fellows will be working on artworks, stories, concepts, tools that help us to imagine and work towards new inclusive futures.
The fellows will be supported with:
- Mentorship by experts from the Superrr network
- A stipend of $3000 per project
- Outreach and campaigning
The fellowship runs from Feb-April 2019. Throughout this time the fellows will advance and launch their projects and write about feminist tech on our blog.
Brought to you by Superrr with support from Mozilla.

Oh yeah, maybe you're like "WTF is this Spritely thing, I haven't heard of this before now...???"
Well I have talked about it a bit, but not enough... it's been in the planning stages for a while, and as of this week, starting to ramp up into the execution space. Read more here: https://dustycloud.org/blog/spritely/
