What does it mean by buying/owning/minting one millilitre of the ocean from the South China Sea? 

Our on-going experimental project titled Forkonomy() is guided by such a speculative question that takes the figurative and pirated material— the South China Sea (Mandarin: 南海, Nan Hai)— as our object of study.

Good to see that #UCL is keeping the policy we wrote in Laws in 2020 and pushed up to the centre, preventing departments from playing recordings in absence of lecturers when industrial action begins across all UK universities next week. ht @israblack #UCUStrike #lectureCapture #lecturecast

Today the negotiations around the new fully harmonised #eID system of the EU reach a critical moment in Council and Parliament. We analysed the most recent compromise text of the #eIDAS reform so that the public knows where we stand before it’s too late. https://en.epicenter.works/content/analysis-of-5th-eidas-compromise-from-czech-council-presidency

1/7 The recent #RIPTwitter trend showed how colonial dynamics are reflected in the power of #BigTech. Here's a short thread on why we think a decolonising process is vital & possible. 🧵

I just want to take this moment to appreciate EDRi. The organization has come a long way from conventional digital rights work that claimed to be "for everyone" while benefiting majorities (as defined by sharp, subversive (!) and mostly cis white men) to understanding difference & historical forms of oppression that are alive and kicking in step with digital tech.
EDRi shows bridging social & tech justice is possible & has the courage to explore how to do it. Go @edri

"Careful Slugs are metaphors that speculatively care for diverse practices within and alongside Computer Science...We invite you to sink with us into soft gooey worldings of slug-imaginings not to overburden the slug but to speculate how metaphors, might contribute to trans*feminist technoscience, accessibility, and CS (Computer Science) concerns."

Lots going on in this article. Amazon uses the advantage of its lead in the transformation of retail into a closed digital environment, where it can better track conversion of a click to a purchase, to bite into ad markets. With inflation etc. sellers spend more on ads. Is infrastructural dominance changing the ad game? I don’t study the ad ecosystem so happy to hear from folks who do. https://www.vox.com/recode/2022/11/10/23450349/amazon-advertising-everywhere-prime-sponsored-products

Imagine you could install any software on any device. The devices you own that don't receive updates anymore, or where you found out that the software is full of ads/tracking. You could replace it, maybe with a Linux distro like postmarketOS running mainline. These devices wouldn't need to be electronic waste. We signed @fsfe's #openletter to the EU to make this happen.

You can sign it, too!

French authorities declare the use of Microsoft Office and Google Docs illegal in schools and education markets, as they don’t follow GDPR and might disturb later competition by making students used to these proprietary solutions.

Hey à ce jour, @Framasoft n'a récolté que 10 % des 200 000 € qu'il lui faut pour boucler son budget et réaliser ses plans pour 2023 😱

Alors on se bouge et on donne pour que Framasoft puisse continuer à nous en mettre plein la vue avec ses super projets 😍
