@manetta and I have been working on a small online module about as digital for @cc_utrecht, where the latter is a term that draws attention to stress points in infrastructures and stimulates thinking about how to intervene. We welcome feedback and thoughts on it, it is a work that will continue in different ways.

Digital circuit simulator recommendation? 

I'm a big fan of Logisim, but it's getting a bit long in the tooth, and it's slow if you want to do larger-scale stuff. I've tried using a couple others, but they tend to be targeted at electrical engineers and have a lot more features, in particular support for analog circuits, so they have a much steeper learning curve.

Does anyone know of a simulator that can simulate relatively large digital circuits and that one can get started fairly quickly on?

Come read with us online, this thursday evening, 23/07, 16:00 - 18:00 CEST. 📚

Varia is hosting two collective reading and conversation sessions. One will be online and one will be in our physical space, as a series of events to discuss matters of abolitionist technology & community-driven systems of accountability, while generating anonymous, consensual debris for stone throw, a temporary online work to share our resources and reflections. We sought texts that are talking about what we want to learn with and about, now.

For our first session we will read from Ruha Benjamin's Race After Technology, choosing chapter 5 Retooling Solidarity, Reimagining Justice to read together. In this chapter, Benjamin examines how practitioners, scholars, activists, artists, and students are working to resist and challenge the New Jim Code (a term Benjamin uses to connect discriminatory technology with past segregationist laws in the Southern states). This chapter also offers suggestions on how to contribute to an approach to technology that moves beyond accessing new products, to advocating for justice-oriented design practices.

These workshops are made with @jules @ccl. 👌

In 2016, Deb Verhoeven described the term digital infrapuncture, where infrapuncture is a portmanteau of "infrastructure" and "acupuncture". Tomorrow she will be speaking about it again. @manetta and I will be thinking through addressing stress points in a digital infrastructure with bot logic during a workshop that follows right after!
