We soft-announced the next #ournetworks a couple weeks ago and I thought I should share the call here!
Our Networks 2047: Redistributing the Future
November 14 – 27, 2022
After a year of hibernation, we're excited to invite you to join us for an experimental online event - something between an alternate reality conference, and wiki as collaborative science fiction. Drawing inspiration from our favourite sci-fi authors we’re headed to a future for Our Networks 2̶0̶2̶2̶ 2047.
We are seeking session leaders to spend at max a couple hours writing abstracts and pitches for the hypothetical conference programming and spending some time checking in on a wiki over the two weeks of the event.
To declare your interest, please submit a character’s name and bio, area of interest or talk by October 15, 2022. More details here: https://ournetworks.ca/
When folks unsubscribe to my newsletter, I remind myself that no one needs more email and most people need less and so I try not to take it personally.
But - each unsub always leaves me with some worry that I have offended someone after I've made some bold (but benign) statement (like "Who watches TV news? It's so information-poor").
I love funny and bold writing. But it takes both confidence and a readership that lets you try it.
