theory

“Free software” means software that respects users' freedom and community. Roughly, it means that the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. Thus, “free software” is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech,” not as in “free beer”. We sometimes call it “libre software,” borrowing the French or Spanish word for “free” as in freedom, to show we do not mean the software is gratis.

In order to foster a free and fair society I affirm that I will practice my profession with responsibility and with dignity.

Reading Interfaces - http://reader.lgru.net/collections/reading-interfaces/ - The division and the implicit hierarchy between the user who accesses the interface and the developer who has insight into the underlying code sparks many questions. How does an interface expose and translate the underlying digital objects? To what extent does it frame and script the user behaviour? Are coding skills necessary for computer literacy? And is it possible to actively/deeply engage with software, if one confines oneself to the provided interface?

Artists Re:thinking the Blockchain

Artworks have become an ‘asset class’, increasingly bought to be hidden away in warehouses in the peculiar nonzones known as freeports.


The REAL reason we use Linux

We tell people we use Linux because it’s secure. Or because it’s free, because it’s customizable, because it’s free (the other meaning), because it has excellent community support… But all of that is just marketing bullshit. We tell that to non-Linuxers because they wouldn’t understand the real reason. And when we say those false reasons enough, we might even start to believe them ourselves.
