Just a short reminder message to say that we will be gathering tomorrow
at 16:30h for a moment of discussion/reflection on the first weeks of
this Special Issue. Florian, Lidia, André and (perhaps) Aymeric will be
joining us as well.
Please bring all material you would like to share and make sure that we
can have a look at it! This will be our starting point to discuss our
understandings of federated publishing and to collect the research
questions that we/you're working on.
We will use the morning and early afternoon to continue the work on
See you tomorrow!
Roel & Manetta
I'm going to be super late :/
No intercity direct today it seems, so I don't think I'll be at XPUB
I'll send another email shortly with a couple suggestions for setting up
I'll arrive a bit before 11:00. That should be enough time to setup
things, from experience, people don't show up before 12:00 or so.
Did you manage to borrow Iris again?
We’re getting a bad gateway on the xpub pad again - not sure what triggered it this time...

Looking forward to meeting you again next week!
Next Wednesday we will be focusing on how social networking platforms
might shape and design social interaction, something we should take into
account when discussing the federated alternatives beyond their
In order to help us navigate this vast and muddy sea, we will be reading
and discussing the three
texts which you can find on the dedicated wiki page under Week 6. It
would be great if you could read them before our session, so that we can
all join in on the discussion.
Later it could be nice to relate all of this to some of the ideas you've
been exploring with Steve in the context of the reader and, of course,
with the practical work you've been doing with Roel and Manetta.
All the best,
can the list admin also add her to the list?
As some of you are busy with Python these days, I saw this today:
(one contributor may be familiar to some of you... :)
It's probably more abstracted than what you did so far, as it relies on
DrawBot, but I think it's worth checking it out, for getting another
perspective on Python and help you familiarise over and over again, with
basic control structures, variables, scopes, lists, etc, which are
concepts that you will be confronted with regardless of the kind of
Python code you're busy with. If you are still struggling a bit with
some of these for instance, the fact that this is applied to a visual
outcome could be really helpful I think. A bit like what DBN was about
many years ago (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_By_Numbers)
