the solution to the government coming after you is not 'self hosting'. self hosting means the government will kick your ass instead of pressuring a business to do it for them

"We want to create a globally oriented, cooperative, interdisciplinary art and culture platform that will remain effective beyond the 100 days of documenta fifteen. Our curatorial approach aims at a different kind of collaborative model of resource use—economically, but also in terms of ideas, knowledge, programs, and innovation."

This online conversation focuses on the lumbung value of Sufficiency. Human ambition has led to discoveries in all fields, and has even brought mankind to other planets. The value of sufficiency, on the other hand, seems incredibly outdated today, as thrift and frugality are considered conditions of deprivation. The Pillars of Hercules have been passed long ago, despite the warning “Ne plus ultra” (“nothing further beyond”), which urged sailors and navigators to go no further.

The sixth edition of lumbung calling explores the limits of sufficiency: When do we say enough is enough? How can these limits be pushed? Who or what defines them?

With the guests Paula Fleisner and Christopher Cozier, hosted by Jumana Emil Abboud and Mirwan Andan.

The comrades at @ruangrupa_ruru are live shortly, tune in to a nice programme and also help load test their self-managed infrastructure 👌

We're running this infrastructure on @coopcloud configurations which are available for all to reuse which aligns with the lumbung model.

Autonomic is proud to be supporting this much needed intervention into reclaiming digital infrastructure.

Join us on 8th Sept at 17.00 (UK time) for Syed Mustafa Ali's keynote "Decolonising Computing (?)" centreforthestudyof.net/?p=556 - all welcome!

What term best describes when software corps pull features from their free version and force you to pay for them? Especially the case where they take community contributions and put them behind a paywall? "Treehousing" evokes the idea of building a treehouse together but when youre down below, they pull up the ladder on you. "Gangplanking" is perhaps more self-describing ;) other ideas welcome! inspired by @dumpsterqueer and @handle

I'm still looking for a #coop in Europe to join as a software developer.
Can anyone recommend one, or know of a co-op directory of sorts? Or maybe you're setting up a co-op and like an extra pair of hands to make it happen?

Boosts welcome!

Ah, “open” source… open as in “open for business.”

As part of my research into the diverse views on sustainability and ICT, I wrote a paper about edge computing and greenwashing.

'Refusing the Burden of Computation: Edge Computing and Sustainable ICT' is published in the open access, online APRJA journal's issue on research refusal.

I've been playing on and off with Godot, an open source 2d/3d game engine. I increasingly think that game engines offer the most exciting examples of new or more supportive/powerful desktop paradigms, particularly for personal software.

I wrote an article about the need for low-carbon and #sustainable #computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

In short, we need to dramatically limit the growth in emissions from computing, or by 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C.

And it is possible to do this.
