Lichtblick in Sachen #Assange - aber nicht in Sachen #Pressefreiheit

Die Auslieferung unterbleibt nicht, weil Assange als #Journalist handelte - sondern weil er inzwischen psychisch so angeschlagen ist, dass ein Suizid droht.

#Rechtsstaat geht anders, sagt auch die #UNO an die Adresse der #USA #GB und #Schweden

¡Nice! In my workshops I promote as a brilliant app for beginners and experts that you can use to contribute to @openstreetmap while enjoying a geocaching-like adventure at the same time. And that my only feature request would be some gamification e.g. with "awards" or "achievements" to motivate even more people to contribute.

Now I realise this has been implemented since version 19 \°/

Thank you Tobias Zwick!

Der Pianist Igor Levit gibt am Pfingstsamstag, 14 Uhr, eine 20-stündige Liveübertragung von Saties 'Vexations', um auf die Notlage von Künstlern weltweit inmitten der Covid-19-Pandemie aufmerksam zu machen.

Der Live-Stream findet sich auf Igor Levits Twitterprofil.

Levit kommentiert: " Die schiere Dauer von über 20 Stunden 'Vexations' kommt mir nicht wie ein "Ärgernis" oder eine "Folter" vor, wie der Titel vermuten lässt, sondern eher wie ein Rückzug in Schweigen und Demut. Es spiegelt ein Gefühl des Widerstands wider.

Deshalb fühlt es sich richtig an, die "Vexations" gerade jetzt zu spielen. Meine Welt und die meiner Kolleginnen und Kollegen ist seit vielen Wochen eine andere gewesen und wird es wahrscheinlich noch lange bleiben. Vexations' stellt für mich einen stummen Schrei dar".

Satie komponierte das Stück um 1893.

Erik Satie - und speziell dieses Stück - stand Pate für die Richtung und den Namen des Kunstprojekts von Rena Tangens und mir: Art d'Ameublement.

Morgen, 13 Uhr @topio:

Wir laden herzlich ein zu einem Open-Source-Mittagstisch...
Dazu diskutieren wir über Commons in den Künsten, Open-Source-Saatgut und -Software, Marktmonopolen und Eigentumsrechten.

Mit Daniela Brugger, Susanne Hofmann-Souki, Jennifer Lyn Morone & Michael Wirths

New essay: Seven theses on the Fediverse and the becoming of FLOSS

Recently, @rra and I have been working on an essay highlighting questions about the #Fediverse and how these are getting entangled with #FLOSS practices. From software production to structure and governance within alternative social media, online communities and politics.

The text follows a multi theses model, to map the different things we've been looking at and publish the current state of our research.

It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (networkcultures.org/blog/publi)

PDF of the text: monoskop.org/images/c/cc/Manso

Feedback welcome. We're planning to publish an online version with more references!

After 'winning' the Big Brother awards of Bits of Freedom, SyRI (System for Risk Indication) is now ruled unlawful. Article 8 (on privacy) of the European Convention of Human Rights has overruled the lawful basis for SyRI.

Judgement: "The fair balance criterion of the ECHR is not met."

And: The lawful basis for using SyRI is not transparent enough, and does not allow for adequate monitoring.
