Ghent: a city of people

Ghent’s foresight team are organising a conference for their 400 civil servants “to teach, facilitate and encourage long-term thinking (especially on technology)”

I’m presenting the opening keynote there this week and will be warning them to stay away from partnerships with surveillance-based Silicon Valley companies and to embrace decentralised, free/open, and interoperable democratic technology.

Bouteille à la mer :

Auriez-vous connaissance d'un bon site qui regrouperait des articles de sciences sociales (et notamment d'histoire de l'art) en allemand ?

Would you know of a good website granting access to social sciences (art history included) articles in German ?

Wisst ihr, ob es eine gute deutsche Website gibt, die Artikel über Humanwissenschaften (besonders über Kunstgeschichte) ansammelt ?
