Today I'm taking part in the 'Public Spaces' conference, organized by a coalition of public institutions in the Netherlands that wants to shift to a more publicly owned and minded internet infrastructure ecosystem.
I'm primarily there to listen. I'm quite curious what questions and needs public institutions might have regarding their IT and what moves they are willing to make.
This coalition is ambitious and there are pitfalls here and there, but all in all, I think it is a really important opportunity to for example shift procurement priorities etc.
Both events are in Dutch, but I believe other parts of the conference are English.
Welcome to post.lurk.org, an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
