We're happy to announce that we just started to work on three new interdependent online resources: the Damaged Earth Catalog, the Permacomputing wiki, and the permacomputing workshop series!


Damaged Earth Catalog

A growing online catalog of the different terms in circulation, used by communities of practice, in relation to computing and network infrastructure informed by ecological ethics, degrowth, resilience, repair, and minimalism. Currently developed by @l03s as part of her PhD research.


Permacomputing wiki

A new wiki about permacomputing that aims to expose its principles, present and discuss the concepts and jargon required to engage with permacomputing, and maintain a repository of related projects. Currently facilitated by @viznut and @320x200 open for contributors!


Permacomputing in the Arts

A workshop series that will be developed throughout end-2022 and 2023 as an onboarding course for permacomputing practices in art an design. The workshops will be made available as an Open Educational Resource. Developed by @320x200 as part of a postdoc research on the topic.

For this broadcast, we will be joined by two practitioners who have been working on and around and activist : Spideralex and Danae Tapia.

Spideralex will share about her personal story/travel/trip towards feminist infrastructure, how she started becoming interested in building her own infrastructure, joining lorea/n-1 (federated social networks) and then (a material infrastructure, social lodging cooperative and rehabilitating an old industrial colony) and the gaps and the need to create feminist servers, as well as the main changes over the last 10 years regarding critical digital feminist infrastructure and feminist in general.

Yesterday, during a bike ride to the picturesque Microsoft hyperscale datacenter in Middenmeer (NL), I learned that Microsoft and Google store over 2 million liters of Diesel there, of which half is burned during monthly and yearly tests of their emergency generator. I suppose this is commonly known, their way to reach 99,999 percent availability, I just never pictured datacenters having *that* many chimneys... Biking past them also lets the hyper-ness of their scale sink in 😱

Se tenir debout avec les infirmières est un projet féministe

"Les syndicats d’ de vingt-huit pays s’attaquent aux gouvernements et à Big Pharma avec une demande simple : renoncer aux sur les contre la -19 et mettre fin à la pandémie dès maintenant. Dans son texte, Silvia Federici appelle les à se rallier aux luttes des travailleuses de la santé."

"Quelle est l’image marquante de la pandémie de la Covid-19 ? À mon avis, c’est celle de l’infirmière au chevet du malade, en première ligne de cette urgence mondiale, surmontant sa propre peur de la maladie pour soigner les patientes et patients et leur apporter du réconfort face à une mort probable. Pour des millions d’infirmières vivant dans des pays où les vaccins contre la Covid-19 demeurent rares, c’est une image de la vie quotidienne. Même dans les pays où le pire de la maladie s’est dissipé, on commence seulement à comprendre le poids de ce travail — jour après jour — sur les épaules des infirmières."

Dear , , in an institution..

A letter from to everyone facing .
Let’s learn together how to do technology differently!

"Together we witnessed how the recent move to ‘distant learning’ has meant that educational institutions have almost without exception turned to online commercial platforms. What we called ‘an elephant in the room’ only a few months ago, has finally trampled all residual ‘room’ in education. It might feel like the change is sudden, but it has been long in the making..."
