Currently reading: Producing Futures: A Book on Post-Cyber-Feminisms by a collective of cyber-feminist artists. It’s actually the catalogue of an exhibit at Migros Museum für Gegrnwartskunst (in Zurich, Switzerland), that took place earlier this year.

Reinventing social contact to integrate cyberspace, not empirically but consciously

Finally reading this again and here’s a pretty bleak look back at the failed dreams of the hackers of the 1990s, or rather what we got from the internet instead of liberation and freedom

There’s little to no ethical creation under capitalism I’m afraid

The landscape of reflections about tech and the internet has changed since the 90s basically because a) we saw it wouldn’t live up to expectations and b) we all got irony poisoning.

I mean obviously I think that’s important as someone who was born from two mothers via artificial means

I really like the way this text is written, using “we” as a pronoun and very often going “which is kind of like when ...”

Also I saw a talk by Maggic back at 34c3 and I’m curious to re-watch it after reading that book to see if my understanding has progressed

Another author (Paul B. Preciado) on the similarities in the requests of migrants and trans people to the state

That’s Very interesting to me for some reason... relationships that are based entirely online often feel less real than relationships that occur offline and I’m interested in how that happens and how we should consider these relationships

Well, I just finished the book (the “art pieces” part was really good but harder to put in pictures) and it was really interesting...
Guess I’m giving that to @amphetamine tomorrow

Also do go and watch the CCC talk by Maggic here media.ccc.de/v/34c3-9036-open_!

@wxcafe I feel lonely when SO turns off (aka when they fall asleep) too, or when they are feeling down and don't want to interact or be leaved alone, so that's a bit the same than with online relationships in my opinion :|

@wxcafe I tried to explain to my mother that online relationship are not less than offline, her arguments were that offline you can see people, you can do more activities together, and you can't avoid the other when you want to so you see more of them and their personality.
My opinion is that you can see people through videos, you can do a lot of activities online, and oblige someone to engage with you when they do not want to is not quality time and just shows how people react when they do something they don't like/when they are tired, which is not mandatory to tell that yoa know someone well.

@amphetamine afaik they’ve been doing tours for 2 years (2016-2017) with this so uh I guess?
