Dear all,

last week I've met with several of you, and with the others I've been working on similar topics for a long time!

I'd like to introduce you to each other, in order to spark creativity :)

  • please approach each other if you feel the "match";


  • please share more of the links to your work that are relevant!!

Next big events where we could all meet (virtually) : 22.-26.11.2021. RIPE83 27.-30.12.2021. CCC / rC3 5-6.02.2022. FOSDEM'22

& a wild idea: hackathon-on-a-train this December!!! (topics: sustainability & low-tech Internet & remote working & mobility)

& a "forum" to inter-connect & meet more people from cross-communities: UnCivilisation mailing list!!

Big Love, Vesna

OWNERSHIP of the Internet

June 2018

the extensions the internet has spawned now greatly outweigh the original network: billions of smartphones and other devices, and cloud-computing factories the size of football fields, containing unimaginable quantities of data.

The political consequences of the internet’s growing centralisation are even more troublesome, if less obvious.
