@bourgwick My own story with Fred Frith was about three years ago, when he was asking about a tape from a live gig by his Skeleton Crew band. I happened to have a decent flac copy of that (thank you, taper culture, thank you, etree and dime), so I sent it to him.

To my surprrise, it eventually came out on a double-CD compilation of live dates spanning Skeleton Crew's career:

A company named following the early-noughties convention of squishing the final syllable (think "Grindr", "Flattr", and othrs) doesn't inspire a lot of confidence.

'Songtradr is a music marketing company that says it will "continue to operate Bandcamp as a marketplace and music community with an artist-first revenue share"'

Petit Bardo is a project by Mikel R. Nieto.

It presents a series of sound works and recordings in which sound artists work with the listening act in existential finitude situations.

The artists were asked to create a sound work that can be heard by a person in existential finitude (in a relatively short period of time) or a sound work to be heard while someone dies or a sound work that the artists themselves would like to listen to while they die.

Petit Bardo also maintains a loose "anarchive" of references and other works akin to its field of research:

"Right to repair has no cannier, more dedicated adversary than Apple, a company whose most innovative work is dreaming up new ways to sneakily sabotage electronics repair while claiming to be a caring environmental steward, a lie that covers up the mountains of e-waste that Apple dooms our descendants to wade through."

I really feel the #Fediverse has made a better person out of me.

For one, I now talk to bots.

It's Saturday night in my corner of the planet, so it's time for me to come up with another crazy-ass business idea. This week, it's the Drunk Book Club.

We meet once weekly in your nearest 100 Montaditos. This week, we're drinking and reading (not necessarily in this order) Salomé Voegelin's The Political Possibility of Sound.

Glad the boosters are approved & rolling out soon. Tho for myself really hoping for Novavax approval soon. I had such an awful reaction to my last mRNA vax that I hope to not have to tolerate another.

(no need to @ me about the science, I am following it closely, thx)

@inquiline At least they're openly acknowledging there's an emergency. That's much better than whatever TF they were doing until yesterday.

I hope at some point in this conf we can also discuss the question - how to incentivise devs to share their code publicly always and by default (regardless if it's "perfect" or spaghetti - it's a spectrum anyway, right?). Basically if a project gets public funding and uses funding to write code, even if just in pilot / Proof-of-Concept stage, code should be online from day 1. But as most tricky questions, I guess the problem is social not technical, right?

acousticmirror,
@acousticmirror@post.lurk.org avatar

@lozross This is a great idea, but the implementation would be complex. It would require a code forge (Github Premium? Github Academia?) that only provides short descriptions of the code base and doesn't allow cloning for less than $50-$80. And only provides FLOSS licensed code if the developer pays over $500 in "Open Access Fees".

Oh, and if some clever developer cracks the system and provides free and open access to the code, the forge has to go after them and harass them legally until driving them to suicide, the way academics did with Aaron Schwarz.

I.e., it would need to be something that puts open source code distribution on equal standing to academic publishing.

And something tells me that maybe information technology workers might not see this as a good deal.

Notes on strategy for any ops on Mastodon who want to undermine nascent political organizing:

Don't do anything. Just let federation & community moderation do their things
