Today, the Bonfire team is excited to announce our beta release 🔥🎉

We’re aware that Bonfire still needs a lot of work - like ensuring it federates as expected and improving configurability, accessibility and user experience - but that’s the point: we decided to launch at this stage with the intention of building the 1.0 release as a community.

🥳 lumbung.space is online 🥳

We've been working with ruangrupa & friends for a while now and we're super proud to see the project launched!

Here's an excerpt from the public post:

The aim of lumbung.space is to create a digital infrastructure that is maintained by the lumbung network without being dependent upon exploitative digital infrastructures. The pandemic and the ensuing digitization of many aspects of creative practice, offered an extra reason to focus on networked media practices. lumbung.space, therefore, is an urgent experiment that tries out what an artist-run digital space could be like.

lumbung.space was conceptualized and developed together with @rra an artist and doctoral candidate in Interaction Design at Malmö University and with @autonomic. Their work for lumbung.space is part of the @coopcloud initiative, which allows other collectives to set up similar infrastructures.

🎺 the new `abra` stable (v0.4.x series) is finally out 🎺 this is the final alpha series before beta 🤯 you can run `abra upgrade` to get the latest copy of `abra`. There are migration docs for this release, some stuff has changed: docs.coopcloud.tech/abra/upgra. "stable" doesn't guarantee a bug free experience 🙃, we're still in alpha, but we think the interface churn is coming to and end now! If you run into any issues, please report git.coopcloud.tech/coop-cloud/ 😎 Thanks for your testing efforts! Enjoy 💓

thanks again @Neuromantic (and London Learning Coop) for organising today's event about democracy in technology spaces 💪

@zabbeer as members of meet.coop we will be dropping some hints 😃 I think the event hosts are very keen on using alternatives! the dissapointment to organising energy converter is running overtime on these zoom-based digital democracy events 🏃‍♀️ letsss goooooooo

Delighted to announce that we have finally published our federation proposal! 🎉

This is a document which aims to formalise the organisation of the project, focusing on a democratic process.

It's open for comments, feedback, critique & amendments 🤓 We'd love to hear what you think 👂

If you're around & about on the 18th this month @ 19:30 CEST, we're having an 'ol ramble with some fine people at this panel + Q&A session 💗

(Re)Taking Control of Virtual Spaces: eventbrite.co.uk/e/towards-a-r

Its the first event in a series of events from the wonderful londonlearningcoop.com

The Learning Cooperative presents the first in a new series of events exploring themes of democracy and its increasing absence in online, and offline, spaces.

While the creation of the virtual world started as an emancipatory utopian project, ‘cyberspace’ soon started to fall-under, replicate, and accelerate the same oppressive norms and structures that dominate physical spaces.

Join us for a panel and Q+A discussion exploring the problems of data centralisation, how data infrastructure has been (mis)used, and what we can do to destabilise anti-democratic platforms and practises.
