Couldn’t make it to PAF but I will be there for OFFDEM.
I’m expressing interest for these topics and if there are enough people interested can prepare texts and other resources to conduct a debate/talk/workshop:
A) the radical critique of technology as seen through the motivations of 19th century luddites all the way to the destructive actions of the CLODO in the 70s. This goes through a mix of Marx, anti-capitalism and practical resistance.
B) helping to push further the raising awareness from inside the hacker/system administrators communities of the ecological impact of tech, from smartphones to datacenters
C) poking at the underlying models supported by the likes of repository-based social-media-influenced systems like Docker, Github (and, yes, also Gitlab), NPM, Kubernetes, etc. This hopes for a more abstract approach, looking to feed on information and techn/ology/ique philosophy; while still aiming at a very political conslusion :))))))
Will also make a separate thread, I should have a few visuals to propose shortly to go along proposition C.
