there is no digital sovereignty w/o sovereignty (and it boils down to hardware and supply chains)
she actually makes the parallel between shitty gafam internet and building/housing (the building is about to collapse and the users have to wear clunky PPE while the landlords are not footing the bill)
the community aspect: inclusion in broader terms (different forms of knowledge included) the governance aspect on common assets was completely neglected: example of how they put all face pictures on creative commons, and they were subsequently used for AI training for unrelated purposes. the technology aspect
federated forms of knowledge: collaboration with opensyllabus!
possible digital future: - open - local/federated - sustainable - feminist - generative
“socially-desirable systems design”
computing artifacts must comply with the formal essence of computing, but are also situated. the point is to give those equal weights in the design process.
diffraction: rethink differences beyond essentializing binaries
example: UN Women Campaign Google Autocomplete
an important part is “participation”: who has a say, who benefits, and how?
participating: - in IT design - in the worlds through IT - involuntary
bias happens through: - data - algorithms and models - use - application domain
design approaches: - norms & values - participation - what are the vulnerable groups of a given project (i.e. cosyl)
algorithmic systems are made of: - people -> mapping all shareholders - place -> reproduction of structural inequalities? - power -> how emancipating is the system? - participation -> when is participation happening/not happening?
making different agential cuts, beyond representation and towards performativity
is health a value-free notion? is it purely descriptive? is it just statistical normality?
ref: sorting things out, bowker and starr
defining things like health, education, security, is a dialogical approach between what something is, and what something should be. and a conception allows us to offer justifying reasons over a value-judgment, in order to retain epistemic agency
paroles, paroles, parolesA
govern inclusively: - community-building and community-bridging - mutual relaiance & care - other forms of commoning
scale small: - horizontal support structures - multi-stakeholder ecologies - cooperation instead of competition
finance creatively: - resilience instead of sustainability - diversifying income streeams - common infrastructures
Funding: - long-term and robust funding and subsidies as part of strategy - funding structures by the community - extending funding to margins (small journals, etc)
coaching: - peer-to-peer consulting - streamlining workflows to increase efficiency (not getting bbogged down by software/administration) - analyzing business models and benchmarking
networking: - representing the interests of scholar-led publishers - creating awareness for the labor of editors - regular networking events
what is open hardware? it is good documentation:
digitalize knowledge, not documents!
it’s interesting how they focus on machine- and human-interpretation of content, with a crowd-based approach
