I and Adam Pultz Melbye
will held a WS at @NIME for "discussing performance ecologies".

In the WS we'll use ARCAA (in the image), a framework I developed as part of my PhD for studying performance ecologies. The framework aims at formalizing the study of a given performance by connecting all the actors (top) to the artifacts (bottom), though 3 layers.

In the WS we will use this model to reflect about our and participants music performance practice with digital tech adampultz.com/discussingperfor

Vi propongo l'intervista che ho fatto a #FabioMorreale professore all'Università di #Auckland in ZN che insieme a una sua collega ha fatto uno studio su #Spotify e su come l'ultimo importante aggiornamento ha modificato radicalmente l'accesso alla musica x i propri utenti e su come la nuova interfaccia induca le scelte degli utenti. Una dimostrazione di come i Software Proprietari limitino la #libertà degli utenti a vantaggio di chi controlla il #mercato .

Internet must reinforce our core democratic principles and our fundamental freedoms.

The EU, the US and several partners proposed a Declaration for the Future of Internet to make it safe and trusted for everyone, and to ensure that it serves our individual freedom.

#DigitalEU

@fsfe prepared an open letter to ask the EU to introduce legislation that will help extend the life of hardware and recycle devices through the unlocking of bootloaders, publishing specs, and guaranteeing the right to repair. The letter is signed by 38 organisations

Next week we are presenting a paper about the need to reinforce value driven ethical discourse in academic venues at the CHI conference (Human Computer Interaction conference)

It would be nice to know how other communities deal with ethic and values.

Here a short introduction to that paper.
