Since the whole #HackerNarratives blogpost would be unseemly long, I decided to publish the first chapter - on popculture:

alxd.org/how-elon-musk-takes-w

"For years, we've been accepting the capitalistic and individualistic narratives on technology, painting an invention as a work of a single, exceptional individual - not years of work of the whole scientific community or a group of engineers."

I don't know if I posted about my latest blogpost:

Hackers in popular culture - the curse of being an eternal rebel

alxd.org/hackers-in-popular-cu

> Using "computeromancy" as an aesthetic makes true hacking much more tame and hackers' criticism of our capitalist culture - toothless. They're dangerous because they're skilled criminals / geniuses, not because they see more than us or raise valid points against how we use technology.

Breaking: The text of #Article13 and the #EU #Copyright Directive has just been finalised

juliareda.eu/2019/02/eu-copyri

Please reshare widely and **take action**. This has the potential to endanger the #internet as we know it, making it more and more composed of only large platforms.

This has the possibility of killing #alternative #socialmedia projects and small #startups trying to compete with the big #corporations.

"Russia is considering whether to disconnect from the global internet briefly, as part of a test of its cyber-defences."

This series of articles makes me look like a cavewoman. Is this how others live? Sure, I've been glued to a computer since I was twelve, but I keep my contacts on a card. I don't find taking a photo of an image to transfer data from to iPhone impressive. I don't build my identity around the tech I'm using. Not using technology, as long as I was still able to have money to live and meet up with people/go to events would be such a holiday. And so on.
