not a review of FOSDEM/Brussels 2017: An open tech conference on open tech

No registration necessary. https://fosdem.org/2017/ An open tech conference on open tech. Can you imagine? And with years of momentum. This is where I was when the Nurtane story broke and I'm thankful for the perspective, except the immediate distraction means I wont be able to process my notes any time soon. Except just one for… Continue reading not a review of FOSDEM/Brussels 2017: An open tech conference on open tech

Take Care When You Cross Time-Zones: “If done chronically, it can lead to a suppressed immune system, chronic fatigue and memory issues.”

This post is late, I didn't document the jokes around Nicosia as they came up, none was perfect, and the two-time zones New Years Eve party in the  Nicosia Green Line [Ledras] solidified them. I missed it because family suddenly became fun. Note the thing about memory issues (Brody, 2014). Brody, B. (2014).

[This is to further position a collective, speculative, chaotically earnest intention to develop good local questions around the opening of government data, and to connect them with wider debates. I fronted a demo for this during NeMe’s… Continue reading on open government data / the opening of private sector information / the dark side of transparency discourse: on the casting of the state as a corrupt data-hoarder

quick notes on “Here’s to my sweet Satan” (Eramian, Volks 2016) [edited]

I enjoyed this. The exhibition was so ambient that I could feel it lift or maybe introduce a curse,  or neutralise my writer's instinct to see the text first. I walked through a landscape of concrete and displaced stone, focusing on my senses, amidst and in reflection of my relationship with the Nicosia art-scene, and… Continue reading quick notes on “Here’s to my sweet Satan” (Eramian, Volks 2016) [edited]
