We soft-announced the next #ournetworks a couple weeks ago and I thought I should share the call here!

Our Networks 2047: Redistributing the Future
November 14 – 27, 2022
Online, Distributed
ournetworks.ca/

After a year of hibernation, we're excited to invite you to join us for an experimental online event - something between an alternate reality conference, and wiki as collaborative science fiction. Drawing inspiration from our favourite sci-fi authors we’re headed to a future for Our Networks 2̶0̶2̶2̶ 2047.

We are seeking session leaders to spend at max a couple hours writing abstracts and pitches for the hypothetical conference programming and spending some time checking in on a wiki over the two weeks of the event.
To declare your interest, please submit a character’s name and bio, area of interest or talk by October 15, 2022. More details here: ournetworks.ca/

@TQ Thank you! Yes that I mistakenly did -- I've deleted the one with the broken link and tooted a new one.

@SC0ID Thank you! I've deleted the one with the broken link and tooted a new one.

The link on our last toot was broken so re-tooting now. :)

This is SO beautiful, we just love @compost 💜 :

"A gentle choose-your-own adventure about mushroom foraging, coming to terms with Indigenous displacement and sustaining online community. What happens when the internet brings you closer to nature?" 👇 ✨

are you digging Issue 02?

Then maybe you'll want to check out the playlist we curated to go along with it, with song additions from our Issue 02 contributors.

open.spotify.com/playlist/56Wz

(We know that Spotify is deeply problematic for artists, as they pay out almost nothing for each play they get per song. We'd like to explore other platforms in the future -- if you have suggestions for alternatives, we'd love to hear them!)

Heartbeats, dripping faucets, and the patterns of the stars… What are the life rhythms we take for granted in a world so tethered to networked, universally coordinated clocks?

An interactive visual piece by Benny Lichtner two.compost.digital/clock-bask

The story of a low-tech, slow motion art project to pass a blue marble through the hands of everyone on Earth, as told by Andi Wong and Margaret Warren, through a nonlinear personal exploration of the waters that have shaped their lives. two.compost.digital/a-confluen

@Mayana thank you for this lovely note, and for doing what you do to make the internet a nicer place. <3

@teawithfir thank you for sharing this story! We love to hear how readers think of our pieces. I've forwarded your note on to the author :)

"Laying out a series of semi-living artifacts on the open eye of a mid-millennium scanning apparatus feels ritualistic. Protecting a memory of the moment I acknowledge their inherent importance. This animation of black raspberries only has three frames because the other frames were too juicy not to eat." ~wakest
