Between the 12th and the 15th of May, I am in Orillia, Ontario (Canada) to take part in the Media Activism Research Conference, organized by the Media Activism Research Group at Lakehead University. I was invited to do a skill-share workshop entitled 'Practicing hacker ethics', in which we will assess our engagement with technology (for daily use, media activism, and for research on media activism) in light of the values of hackers ethics. The video is now on YouTube. I will also present my research on social media and counter-hegemony. The conference, organized by the team coordinated by Sandra Jeppesen, includes morning yoga sessions, strategizing sessions and.. it is just awesome!
