Donna Haraway coined the term 'situated knowledges' in a 1988 essay entitled Situated Knowledges: The Science Question in Feminism and the Privilege of Partial Perspective. The term was born of a specific situation: "in scientific and technological, late-industrial, militarized, racist, and male-dominant societies… in the belly of the monster, in the United States in the late 1980s" (Haraway, 1988, p. 581) but continues to have far-reaching theoretical consequences that render it a useful and vibrant notion for thinking-with in many recent feminist debates. https://newmaterialism.eu/almanac/s/situated-knowledges.html

R A T S in Rotterdam: Our goal is to continue to self organize, fight for our autonomy and connect between us but also with the neighborhood in order to form more direct social relationships that are not authoritarian or manipulative but strive for trust and the later forming of a network in our city that is based on self-organization, autonomy, and freedom: https://rotterdamserats.blackblogs.org/

I think we shouldn’t eulogize friction for friction’s sake, because friction, in itself, is just user’s frustration. We have to be able to recognize elegance and generate autonomous convenience for ourselves. We shouldn’t deny a computer the possibility to take decisions for us, we just have to be aware of how such decision-making takes place. Programmability is still at the core of computers, and that is where we can find full read-write computer literacy. - https://theusercondition.computer

illich: mastery of skill does not yet imply a monopoly of understanding. One can understand fully what a goldsmith does without being one oneself. Men do not have to be cooks to know how to prepare food. This combination of widely shared information and competence for using it is characteristic of a society in whichconvivial tools prevail

41

convivial tools: A basic element which enters into Illich’s very definition of convivial tools (note: technology) is that they increase the user’s autonomy. We can thus consider the capacity to promote autonomy to be in itself a fundamental characteristic of convivial tools.

uri gordon: "technologies are not merely aids to human activity, but also powerful forces acting to reshape that activity and its meaning" // "the construction of a technical system that involves human beings as operating parts brings a reconstruction of social roles and relationships" // "the new system’s own operating requirements: it simply will not work unless human behavior changes to suit its form and process"

on building a thing: (writing a new recipe, writing a new computer program - examples of technology) and using that thing (cooking from the recipe, running the computer program) is a wonderful loop in which, you are affected by the thing and also determining the thing you are making. In other words, the choices you take in building affect how you behave and how you are affected when using the thing which in turn, feeds back into the making of the thing. In this loop you are revisting old thoughts/skills/feelings from the first idea when you built the thing but also experiening each change in the thing as you change it - which gives a feeling of building up skill and domain specific knowledge. It's mostly fun.

documenta 15 - documenta fifteen in relation to lumbung: The collaborative work towards the exhibition is like working together in a kitchen. The lumbung members map and recognize different skills, interests and knowledge, treating them as ingredients to be combined with others. They join working groups to shape all aspects that make up documenta fifteen, like education, publications, public program, and many more, thus creating different recipes. Following this analogy, the 100 days of documenta fifteen in Kassel will be the moment when this kitchen presents its different dishes in form of a big feast, open to the public to enjoy.

Posthuman glossary - rosi braidotti - The material conditions of the everyday even the most routine human activities, such as purchasing plastics, impact human and non-human lives across vast geographic and temporal scales, extending even to the bottom of the sea (Alaimo 2016). The bizarre enormity of the effects of the most minute everyday actions underscores the urgent need for rethinking ethics and politics in the Anthropocene, an epoch in which human activities have profoundly altered the planet.

Biobulkbende - Biobulkbende is een vereniging die volledig door zijn leden wordt bestuurd en gerund. Als vereniging kopen we collectief biologisch voedsel in van lokale producenten en distributeurs. Ons huidige systeem van voedselproductie zit vol gebreken en kwetsbaarheden. Daarom vinden wij het belangrijk om meer controle te krijgen over het voedsel dat we kopen en consumeren. Voedsel gaat niet alleen over geld, toegang tot voedsel hoort niet afhankelijk te zijn van ondoordringbare en ondoorgrondelijke logistiek, en overdadige verpakkingen zijn niet vanzelfsprekend. Toegang tot hoogwaardig, biologisch en betaalbaar voedsel is belangrijk voor ons en we vinden dat iedereen er recht op heeft. - https://biobulkbende.org

Jeroen Bakt Brood - Jeroen van Wisse bakt langgerezen desembrood. Ergens in 2014 begon dat thuis, maar sinds 20 juni 2015 is er ook een winkel. Het brood van Jeroen krijgt alle tijd om smaak te ontwikkelen; de rijstijd is standaard zo'n 12 - 48 uur. Daarna wordt het op hoge temperatuur gebakken, waardoor het een zeer harde en knapperige korst krijgt. Het brood heeft een volle, 'ouderwetse' smaak en een ongelijkmatig kruim, met her en der grote luchtbellen. - http://www.jeroenbaktbrood.nl

Stichting Vredestuin - Bij de inrichting van de tuinen wordt gebruik gemaakt van permacultuur-principes, zoals het sluiten van kringlopen, het gebruik van nuttige ecologische relaties tussen planten en andere organismen in de tuin, het ontwikkelen van een hoge mate van biodiversiteit, het gebruik van hernieuwbare grondstoffen en diensten en de zonering van en interactie tussen verschillende plantenlagen. De zorg voor de aarde en voor de medemens staat centraal bij de inrichting van de tuin. - https://vredestuin.org/about/

Tech Learning Collective is an apprenticeship-based technology school for radical organizers founded in New York City that provides a security-first IT infrastructure curriculum to otherwise underserved communities and organizations advancing social justice causes. We train politically self-motivated individuals in the arts of hypermedia, Information Technology, and radical political practice. Founded and operated exclusively by radical queer and femme technologists, we offer unparalleled free, by-donation, and low-cost computer classes on topics ranging from fundamental computer literacy to the same offensive computer hacking techniques used by national intelligence agencies and military powers (cyber armies). Our students are primarily people of marginalized groups and other individuals who are politically engaged. Unlike coding bootcamps that focus on moving the highest number of students through rote memorization exercises for the goal of job placement, Tech Learning Collective teachers facilitate foundational skill building through Socratic discussion and kinetic, experience-based training.

Cooperative technology - By "cooperative technology", we mean technology that is constructed by and for the people whose lives are affected by its use. While this builds on the Free and Open Source Software movement, we aim to apply the same principles to hardware as well, although the criteria by which we evaluate hardware and software will of course not be identical. It is not sufficient to narrowly focus on the people who directly interact with computers. Cooperative software which is run on a server should not be controlled solely by the administrator of the server, but also by the people who interact with the server over a network. - https://cooperativetechnology.codeberg.page

Declaration of Digital Autonomy (draft 0.1): We demand a world in which technology is created to protect and empower the people who use it. Our technology must respect the rights and freedoms of those users. We need to take control for the purpose of collectively building a better world in which technology works in service to the good of human kind, protecting our rights and digital autonomy as individuals - https://techautonomy.org

https://degrowth.nl - The restless expansion of our economies is causing unprecedented crises and threatening our very existence. How do we confront the contradictions between endless economic growth and the ecologi-cal boundaries of our planet? What kind of society would ensure a good life for all, without wealth and power being hoarded by the few? How can we enable a just transition that halts over-ex-traction, over-production and over-consumption? https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5fe0bb74fbf4ee0481e60605/t/5ffd79745e7b3b04e40a4599/1610450192286/Degrowth-Call-English

Crisis. A word that we have heard over an over. But that now has completely different weight. What does it implies right now in the wake of a planetary zoonotic pandemic?. In the same way we want to relearn what “crisis” implies right now, we also want to relearn what "everyday technology” might mean in the same way.
