Prototyping

--Michael Murtaugh (talk) 12:58, 13 March 2020 (CET)

Thinking about technical exercises around: *Making something queryable*.... Might involve technology/tools such as SQLalchemy, whoosh, or .... others.

Media archaeology as a way to resist/revisit the "techno-fix"...

Databases about: Separate things in order to bring them together again.

Embodiment is often stalled, because in the drive to get things to work, issues of embodiment and complexity are put to the side.

Tension between making things, and making things differently .. thinking about...

Approach: make things quickly, give space to look critically.

Outcome as a workshop / scan station at leeszaal as example -- a situation that allows people to experience something and then discuss.

Technology/systems as experiences... that can be reflective

Systems that encourage co-exploration of shared concepts (rather than hide away "underlying" details) ... Interesting to explore the (linguistic / conceptual) affinities between systems --- such as in visualizing

  • SQL (Alchemy) results with HTML tables (rows ... columns). or exploring
  • NLTK and page layout via respective concepts of "words" and "word spacing".

other things coming to my mind (post telephone call of Michael Murtaugh (talk) 15:34, 24 March 2020 (CET))

IF 
Technological infrastructures are implicated in knowledge systems
AND
in how knowledge about the world operates
AND
It is important to think the world differently
THEN
What do we do?


Special Issue #12 is both very abstract and really concrete.

It Technological and knowledge infrastructures are playing together. Protocols, Infrastructures are not just about getting things done, ... Coming to terms with colonial conditionings of computation and contemporary techno-cultures; ways technology structures knowledge and orients what world(s) can be thought, studied, imagined, critiqued. Working through possible ways we could develop and acknowledge other technological practices and other politics for knowledge: experimenting with anti-colonial, non-binary, queer, feminist, civil disobedience ... approaches. possibility of certain propositions

through disposession, externalisation, optimisation. How identity politics is aligned with tech-industry. Inclusions and exclusions; decolonizing techno-cultural production. Anti-colonial computing, non-binarism, queer technologies. Techno-solutionism, abstraction. Standards, protocols. Technocapitalism, governance + law. from library catalog to Machine Learning

Unbound libraries

The hypothesis of an implication, propositional calculus


Non-binary analytics: How to imagine knowledge infrastructures beyond binary separation? Intersectional categories: What could non-exclusionary categories do? Other orderings exist: What are different ways of calculating, validating, ordering collections of digital material?




The need to think differently, but how do we do that.

Syed Mustafa Ali: 'It is not so much that computing has a colonial impulse, but rather —as decolonial thinkers might argue— it is colonial through and through.'

Donna Haraway: 'I'm very pro-technology, but I belong to a crowd that is quite skeptical of the projects of what we might call the “techno-fix,” in part because of their profound immersion in technocapitalism and their disengagement from communities of practice.'

Anais Nony: 'Too often, technologies of scientific knowledge such as machine learning and informational networks are used as alibi for the implementation of neo-colonial values that dictate the epistemological trajectory of societies.'
