“Branch is an online magazine written by and for people who dream of a sustainable and just #internet.

We believe that the internet must serve our collective liberation and ecological #sustainability. We want the internet to dismantle the power structures that delay #climate action and for the internet itself to become a sustainable and positive force for climate justice.”

First issue of #Branch is out:


The 'Decentralization Off The Shelf' project by SimplySecure is hosting a free workshop for #developers and #designers of #decentralized applications about useful design and interaction patterns for the specific UI & UX problems of #decentralized and #federated software. Perhaps interesting for #activitypub #xmpp #ssb devs?

"HitchHiker is a chrome extension for doing live performances inside other people’s web browsers (...) Whenever the performer goes to a new website on their computer, all of the audience members are taken to that website. The performer can then modify the content of the website, speak through text-to-speech voice, play sounds or layer images on top of the screen, all of which is conveyed onto every audience members’ browser"

I am thrilled to have my ongoing project evasive.tech exhibited online in such a good company.


Thanks to @imal for its support.

"Everyone can launch the software, and they receive in real time through the Internet, the data controlling the instrument. (...) The rendering will not be fixed since the generativity of the code causes slight differences in the behavior of the algorithms.

(...) anyone connected to the Internet can attend. It develops and universalized the concept of shared time, basic concept of any performance work.""

It would be an interesting time to rethink remote live performances. Right now the obvious answer seems to be (for good reasons!) video streaming. But it's not the only one.

See for example chdh's egregore

The software they've used for their live performances in 2011-2014 was released to the public in 2015, and in May that year, they had a distributed performance where they controlled the egregore software remotely. Streaming (pure) data instead of video!

While we are all stuck at home we've prepared some mind-tingeling online content for you. First up are three video's by Sabrina Ratté. Discover her works here: imal.org/en/quarant-imal

Stay safe and inside, we'll post more content soon.

Jeremy Bailey's Master/Slave Invigilator System was a humorous technosolutionist answer to the inability to be everywhere, but I guess now it just works for the inability to be anywhere.
