counter cloud strategies
I was inspired by christina cochior's talk on counter cloud strategies and the related work a traversal network of feminist servers
The web today is becoming highly centralized, and most of us are completely removed from the digital infrastrucure we depend upon. The web of the cloud is not a community, it is a corporate-controlled ad-ridden monoculture. I believe in building spaces that are independent of this world, spaces of creativity, play, community and understanding. I view the current world of cloud infrastructure as antithetical to this.
