notes from chat w/ marloes
multiple small exercises
on the server but also outside of it, what does it mean to have a feminist server?
thinking about consent and the small interaction with the server, thinking about consent within feminism, how can we change the language with the server in order to think about consent and your interaction with the server. How a shared space as a server can be safe, how they can be private, how we can trust each other. What is private and what is in between, how language can highlight this conversation

the server is not the central point
it is the space for sharing
we are going to be working on a soft structure, a way to imagine what can be documented and in what form. it gives a framework. it gives styling. using the octomode we go from pads to pdf to print. Michael used the term soft structure to talk about the sponge.
we have some more ideas, on Saturday we want to do 3 short workshops in a rotation manner.

marloes will steal people away for interview

finger protocol
challenging ideas of availability - requires a lot of energy and labour
if a feminist server goes into a pocket to travel then this connects
oooo does maps of the labour
