We call on people in positions of power in their FOSS communities to stop using GitHub and stop recommending it. GitHub, as a proprietary, trade-secret platform cannot be the singular development community for FOSS projects.
Willy*Fred is a co-living house project in the center of Linz and a member of the HabiTAT syndicate based on the model of the Mietshäuser-Syndikat in Germany. The self-understanding of the project is based on four pillars: Inclusion, self-management, solidarity and the idea of user-ownership & capital neutralization.
We are interested in contact with other co-living projects, self-organised collectives and communities of solidarity for exchange and mutual encouragement.
So, @edri is looking for creative writers:
We all need good, positive narratives. If you write, apply!

Hunting Mosquitos explores urban sound technologies and the social and political implications of their use. Specifically, it examines the 'Mosquito alarm'', a technology used in public places in Rotterdam that emits high-frequency sounds, audible only to young people and experienced as unpleasant, to deter them from loitering in hangouts after complaints by of noise 'disturbing' residents...
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.
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.
#Atom (IDE) is shutting down. There could be a lot to say about it. But that was the #IDE I was using across home computer and work computer. It allowed me to easily share settings and addons. And I did not have to relearn shortcuts when changing machine.
But now that it is being sunsetted, I’m looking for an open source multi-platform alternative. Any suggestions?
FYI, I’m not interested in VSCode.
Since a few days, the ÉSAD Pyrénees is switching its standardized formatting template for master thesis from #indesign to #web2print (md → php → html → #paged_js). Responsive web & print design, side notes, images notes, appendices, interviews, bibliography... The goal is to speed up the formatting phase to leave more time for writing, and to promote the sharing of the produced documents. #OpenAccess #OpenSource
Hey everybody, I'm in the process of starting the data collection part of my thesis on Why people are Joining Mastodon. I'm looking for people who would be interested in participating in an interview to share their experiences about their time on the platform. If you want to
participate or have any advice (which I really appreciate) please dm me. Thank you all very much!
This session will engage with awkward and speculative techno-affective practices, which attempt at translating the imperceivable while countering techno-scientific presumptions of objectified renderings regimes. For this edition of Weak Signaaal, Christina Stadlbauer and Wendy Van Wynsberghe will bring you to the #swamp next to art centre Wiels and playfully help you prick up your ears.
During this late afternoon #walk, we propose possibilities to open yourself to the immediate environment of the swampiness - both by employing technology and by sharpening your senses - maybe even training your sixth sense!
17:00 meet at La vieille Chéchette, n°2-6 rue Monténégrostraat, 1060 #Brussels
walk/bodily move to Swamp
20:00 Dinner at La vieille Chéchette (free)
There is a tri++lingual childminder available for activities at the swamp.
KiezPilz, our mycology collective in berlin, has been forced to leave our community lab where we've been cultivating fungi for the past two years after a new landlord purchased the building and is asking for three times the rent.
If you know any spaces in berlin that might have space for our project or want to collaborate, feel free to share this post or send a message 🌱
