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
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
questions about rosa
How is Rosa a feminist server?
How does Rosa operate?
what does operate mean?
Does operate mean work?
Does work mean labour?
Is this labour paid?
Is this work around Rosa elitist or niche? Is it available for all?
Is niche the same as elitist?
Does getting to know Rosa involve commitment?
What barriers are there in making that commitment?
What makes us feel like we can trust each other?
Can we think of Rosa in plural?
How is Rosa different if it runs on the same software as other servers (who don't say their feminist)?
What is the difference between a feminist server and a server maintained with feminist principles?
What is the difference between a community server and a feminist server?
will rosa have time to go to rest/sleep?
What does it mean to personify Rosa?
Why is Rosa given the label of feminist?
How is Rosa intersectional?
How is personifying Rosa with a female name affecting our relationship with it?
Is Rosa only a female name?
Does Rosa have pronouns?
Could Rosa choose their own pronouns?
Can Rosa have characteristics without personification?
Can complex systems do stuff without personification?
What's the problem with personification?
What is the urgency to make Rosa?
How could one argue that Rosa is not a feminist server?
Is Rosa only software or hardware?
Is this division (software / hardware) binary?
What happens if you think otherwise?
How does Rosa relate to their environment?
Are there more extension cables?
Can I unplug something?
How can we relate/connect to a technical device as a server in different ways, with different knowledges?
How to make space for technical and other ways of shaping a server?
How to get away from that hierarchy?
How to intertwine different knowledges?
How to make sure there is still space for conversation about Rosa without splitting up?
How to respect and appreciate different skills?
How to do break away from the fear of technical work, while not overloading yourself in the meantime?
Is it a question of time?
How to not dismiss things as simply technical?
How to formulate this into a question?
Can publishing play a role that?
Can dinners play a role in that?
What do you want for lunch?
Where are we having dinner this week?
Can I have breakfast now?
How to acknowledge the extractivist processes that have allowed Rosa to come to be?
- We wonder about these things.
How can we make feminist server practices public?
How can we share our practices, through publishing?
How do we learn?
How can we develop feminist methods?
How can we make feminist technologies?
What is publishing?
What are feminist technologies?
Is feminism intrinsically about sharing?
