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.

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

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 tomorrow

Also do go and watch the CCC talk by Maggic here!
