[Fwd: [node-l] antisocial notworking]

Das folgende fand meine Aufmerksamkeit und meine Freude. Es gibt ja zur
Zeit keine Internetseite, die nicht was von Community daherschwafelt.

Beachtenswert auch das Projekt "logo_wiki", das versucht subtile
Änderungen an Wikipedia Einträgen auf ihre Urheber bei Militär,
Regierung und Bluechips hin zu verfolgen.


'antisocial notworking' is a repository of projects that explore the
pseudo-agency of online social platforms. The concern is how the
Internet is increasingly charactised as a 'platform' (or collective
machine) for 'social' uses, but to question what is meant by the terms
in such descriptions. Although social networking platforms rely on
user-generated content, what is the nature of this participation? What
alternatives (or antitheses) can be identified?

We are looking to add examples of existing and new projects to our
'antisocial notworking' repository that address these themes in
uncompromising ways. To submit a project, go to:

The project is launched with a selection of existing projects,
including: Wayne Clements's 'logo_wiki' (2007); Linda Hilfling's
'Participation 0.0 - Part I' (2007); Ubermorgen.com, Alessandro
Ludovico, Paolo Cirio's 'Google Will Eat Itself' (2005) & 'Amazon
Noir' (2006).

Also featured is Rui Guerra's 'www_hack' (2008), a script installed on
the host site allowing all visitors to a single page to observe each
others mouse movements and to reflect on the server-client relationship:

'antisocial notworking' was launched on 1st May at Futuresonic 2008:
Urban Festival of Art, Music & Ideas, Manchester, UK.

Some notes on the project are here:

The projects and other online resources are available as part of the
subdomain 'project.arnolfini' - an online experimental production and
management system:
