"Hack the Earth 2019 > #Futurotopias - Communities to change everything
19/22 April in #Calafou, Vallbona d'Anoia
This HTE is an invitation to face a world that seems to go from bad to worse, where the options, imaginaries and futures that they propose to us oscillate more and more between cynicism and dystopia. We propose to build our collective desires and needs from the futurotopias we need. Futurotopias that allow the circulation of ideas, fabulations and dreams.
Speculative practices and imaginaries, #degrowth and #feminist practices, joyful actions and radical tenderness.
It's not just about projecting ourselves into the futures we want, but about rescuing what already happened in the past and putting the magnifying glass on everything that is developing in our present, it's about stopping the future of shit that suffocates us and putting in the center the communities that are already changing everything, spinning futures here and now. This HTE proposes to rediscover and re-invent our margins for manoeuvre, highlighting projects, networks and communities that are already changing everything around them.
Because the sum of our degrees of happiness is an indicator of our revolutionary potential. See you in Hack the Earth 2019 "

"Networks do not tell all stories equally. #Networks, like all entities with stories, tell most readily those stories in whose reflection they see themselves." Eleanor Saitta, 2012
Would be great to get some people from the #fediverse joining!
We will dive into what the fediverse is, how it works, who is on there, who made it, what it means to host communities and how and where on can contribute.

“The Techno-Galactic Guide to Software Observation is the obsessive fantasy of optimization turned on its head and stuck to the ceiling of a self-reflecting elevator. It is the ultimate book, with almost 300 pages of dos and don’ts, of forgotten #histories and un-inevitable #futures, of mindful agile actions and improvisational service architectures, of any and all things that you can and cannot imagine needing in a techno-galaxy.”

the great gathering of the #commons
Koppelting is an annual #grassroots festival about #peerproduction and #floss alternatives for society. It is filled with projects, lectures, debates and workshops, and is co-created by the attendees. Anyone can contribute, whether by giving a lecture, a #workshop or demonstration, or by simply participating, helping out and engaging in good discussion.
By the way the image they use suggests that it is a gathering of old white men, hope that that is not the case ;)
"One week building #appropriate machines and #technologies. We propose 4 different projects and depending on the registration of the participants we will carry out two or three projects in parallel during the week. We will work about 6 hours max each day and the rest of the time we will hang out, dream, conspire, sleep and dance among others.
We imagine a self-financed event, in which all the participants contribute with resources in order to gather and #learn #together how to develop these projects. When we say self-financed, we mean that all the productive and reproductive work is supported by the contributions and volunteer work of the people that coordinate and participate to this event. We do not count on any grant or financial aid to organize the event. This also means that if you register for the event, it will be important that you send us the money for your subscription before the event takes place so that we can buy everything we need (from the materials for the machines to the food).

I do projects on/with/about computers, networks, infrastructures.
