Read & Repair feat. @jules

During this session we will dive into a recent paper by Abeba Birhane entitled Algorithmic injustice: a relational ethics approach. Abeba has recently completed a PhD in cognitive sciences and her research sits at the intersection of complex adaptive systems, machine learning, and critical race studies. The paper investigates ways to address algorithmic injustice that go way beyond efforts to build more inclusive/representative, and β€œdebiased” datasets.

It's been out for a few weeks now, but this report by EDRi deserves your attention if you are thinking about "Fair AI":

I don't know. Maybe it's time to make this public.

If you are trying to learn audio programming and DSP from scratch (like, *really* from scratch), these notes might be the place to start:

They were lecture notes for a student-led 1-credit audio programming course that I taught in the spring this year, but it's now a course for everyone. Some sections are still in revision, but the main contents are mostly complete.

It's probably more low level and UNIX-centric than most of the audio programming tutorials you can find, so don't expect to learn how to make an audio plugin using JUCE or how to make fancy GUIs etc. But maybe this can be a good thing.

1. you need to know basic C and UNIX shell utilities
2. it contains math, but at most calculus level

A conversation hosted by Possible Bodies (Jara Rocha, Femke Snelting) in conversation with Martino Morandi

hello world! we are exploring computation at a human scale, in pedagogical, performative and/or speculative ways :)

very glad to be here!

currently we are starting to develop the technique, a proposal for movement practice based on the computational transformation of sequences within a constrained vocabulary. this as part of a micro-residency in the fall phase of the conference.

recently we completed the tutorial that some of you might be aware of.

you can find about this and more in the web and in gemini:

#GoToSocial still has a bit of money saved up from liberapay donations to pay someone to make a small website at (currently nothing there). Just something static that explains what the project is and links to the docs and the code repo. At a stretch we could also have something that lets us post blog-style updates there (here's what we've been working on this month etc), but that part isn't a big priority right now. Theming should be consistent with the GtS style. If you're interested, dm me or reply here :)

DARC/Aarhus and CSNI/LSBU are organising a research workshop - Rendering Research - to collapse the traditional workflows of academic publishing and draw more closely together work-in-progress and feedback, writing and print production - in collab w/ transmediale & ERG, School of Graphic Research, to be held in Brussels in January 2022. Deadline for submissions: 14 Nov, see

@mara Yeah so what happens when you federate with a server, is that their videos show up on your instance. Reversly, if you are followed, your videos show up on another server. So it is good to have a sense who that server federates with because your video might show up next to another. Then another thing you can do is to mirror particular videos or channels to help keep them online. So far the server I am involved with ( does not federate with other peertube servers, but that is for other reasons.

@mara congrats on setting it up! In terms of content curation my advice after working a bit longer with peertube is to be extremely selective with federation!

Despite the fact that @Gargron, the Mastodon project and the wider ecosystem can not do much to prevent particular actors from joining the fediverse, a statement by the official project regarding Trump's use of the software would be a welcome and important gesture. Something similar happened when Gab forked mastodon in 2019:
