I am not sure how ISBN works for a software-release and where it would need to go, but maybe a nice challenge to think about: ISBN/EAN:978-94-92893-14-7
In the mean time, Leslie is wondering how to go about announcing the launch ... should she get on with that, and if so can you inform her, or are you on this already? Let her know?

This one fresh ready for press and yet used…...
originally made for thesis 7, meaning all metadata needs to be updated.
fine days ahead.
When do you think I’ll be able to start advertising the event? Are students taking care of the HNI front this year or should I do it?

On Monday 4June I want to meet individually with **all of you** to work
through the production details of your gradshow work at UBIK.
Bring all materials and prototypes that you are thinking to include in
the show, they will come in hand in discussing how to best setup your work.
Add yourself in 30 minutes to the calendar
This is the corrected and final version to put on the cover of your thesis’s. ‘XPUB’ is in capital letters.
Max could you please update the logo on git? (thanks)
The other logos (PZI+WDKA) don’t have to go on the cover but on the last page in the book just before the endcover.
When a Congressional Hearing of Facebook leaves a lot of people unmoved,
but a sudden change in a user interface is received with many runouts,
like in the case of Snapchat, there is something at stake.
We invite you to discuss the impact of interface design in the context
of federated, free software, social media and chat projects with us and
Daniel Gultsch, developer of the instant messaging project Conversations
Keep on reading for more information and links :)
Have a good night,
/Welcome to the � Federation/
On the *1st *and *2nd of June* varia <https://varia.zone> will host
'*The Ecosystem Is Moving*', a lecture by and worksession with Daniel
Gultsch about federated instant messaging, open source software and the
sustainability of open systems. This is the first one in a series of
encounters under the name /Welcome to the � Federation, /where we invite
makers of federated, free software, social media & messaging projects to
Varia in Rotterdam, to come and talk about their project.
*June 1st, 19.00 - 22.00*
introduction to XMPP and lecture by Daniel Gultsch
*June 2nd, 10.00 - 18.00*
hands on worksession on design and federated chat systems.
Please register for the worksession via info(a)varia.zone
Daniel Gultsch is the developer behind Conversations, an open source
instant messaging application for Android. In 2014, he decided to work
full time on Conversations and try to make a living from it. Rather than
starting from scratch with Conversations, he built it as a client for
the existing federated messaging protocol XMPP.
Since an XMPP messenger can, in a way, only be as good as the entire
ecosystem, Daniels work on Conversations also meant work on expanding
and improving that larger XMPP ecosystem. This work includes helping to
draft and implement protocol standards, such as OMEMO, a modern and
user-friendly end-to-end encryption based on Signal's protocol. He also
contributed code to other XMPP servers and clients in the ecosystem to
bring them up to speed with modern uses. Additionally, through his
critical essays he is a vocal defender of XMPP and open standards in
Conversations is notable because, through its continuous focus on user
experience, design and security it has garnered a lot of interest for
both itself and the XMPP ecosystem as a whole. This makes it an
interesting example to talk about what the design field could
potentially contribute to critical software practices.
*Welcome to the � Federation* is grounded in a renewed interest in
'alternative' on-line services such as social media and chat. Through
meetings and worksessions the project hosts various events around
software projects that are working towards these ecosystems. A
particular focus will lie on those projects whose activities have
reinvigorated interest for their underlying protocols, in part by their
focusing on design, language and user experience (UX).
The Wtt�F question is to explore how arts and design communities can
play a supportive role in these processes by contributing skills,
knowledge, time and exposure.

Just so you know (not sure if you heard when this was discussed
yesterday), André is the contact for anything related to UBIK. Per
production request on WORM side, they only need one contact, and that
will also make things less noisy on both side.
So if you have a question in relation to UBIK (ie, when I can try the
tape, can we test a hook for the camera, etc) please go through André
here is the recipe:
@Alex: can you finish the "testing the cluster" section? Just put the
SQL commands we tried, so we have some basic instructions to try things.
Note: in the documentation I used the latest version of golang as an
instruction to compile rqlite, but the one I compiled and that we used
this afternoon was based on golang 1.8, I don't this is going to be an
issue (it uses the latest version of rqlite anyway). But just in case
you have problem with golang 1.10, you know what you can try.
With all that said, you can also stick with the binaries we already have
made, if it's not broke, don't fix it :)
Here are the plans for next week:
On Monday we'll travel first to Amsterdam and then to Utrecht to meet two different library/librarian initiatives.
The first is at the Rietveld Akademie, where librarian Anita Burato has convinced her colleagues and management to replace the proprietary library catalog software with Free, libre and open source software. With Martino Morandi, they are in the process of developing the new catalog software themselves. In the mean time, they organise activities in the library around e-pubs, piratical reading and library activism. We'll meet them both plus some Rietveld students that are involved in the process to discuss why and what they are doing. They are super interested in hearing from you about XPPL.
The second meeting is with Read-in, a collective based in Utrecht that experiments with the political, material, and physical implications of collective reading and the situatedness of any kind of reading activity. They for example developed a prototype for a feminist search-engine http://www.feministsearchtool.nl/ and initiated many other projects to do bibliographic activism. We'll meet members from the collective who will present their work and we'll have a chance to discuss reading interfaces, situations and catalogs with them.
Tuesday we'll stay at PZI to work in the studio on XPPL. If you think it is useful, we can organise individual tutorials or collective work but we can decide en route.
To make it to Amsterdam and Utrecht in one day, we need to catch the 09:27 intercity direction Lelystad Centrum (Spoor 9) at Rotterdam station. I'll bring something to read!

P.S.: I am assuming you have OV-passes and can travel for free. If not and the tickets pose a problem, write me off-list and we see how to solve it
