Conference Paper

Communities form in order to manage and defend a commons and Community Memories are distributed information systems that help them do so. This paper discusses the use of tagging within Community Memories. We argue that the role of tag- ging goes beyond being an aid in navigation. It is a means by which communities come to grips with the tensions an...

The crisis we face, due to the impacts of climate change, the collapse of biodiversity and ecosystems, pandemics or wars, renders even more urgent a transition to agroecological food systems which are more resilient and less dependent on external inputs. The organic movement believes that, more than ever, the Green Deal and the Farm to Fork strateg...

Declining crop productivity is a great challenge facing smallholder farmers in Tanzania. Agro-ecological practices can improve crop productivity in a sustainable way and produce healthy food among smallholder farmers. Initiation of “Farmer-Led Research of Agro-Ecological Practices” (FLRAG) may enhance farmers’ capacities for innovation and co-devel...

Si la investigación es una indagación metódica capaz de descubrirnos nuevas formas de hacer y de pensar, de profundizar y de ensanchar nuestra relación con el mundo, podríamos afirmar que se trata de una tarea vital y que, por ello, debería estar al alcance de cualquier persona, sin importar su condición. Sin embargo, en nuestros entornos sociales...

El hilo que conecta a Turing con Descartes nos revela la profunda influencia que la técnica, considerada como un sistema de realidad plenamente consumado, tiene sobre la cultura contemporánea, tanto la occidental como la occidentalizada. En la realidad técnica, lo que cuenta como real es sólo aquello que se puede racionalizar, es decir, lo que se p...

When the IAASTD Report was written, digitalization of the agro-food sector was not yet on the 'transformation' agenda. The fast and far reaching technological advances in the IT and telecom sector allowed the convergence of various business fields which rely on complex algorithms, data collection and storage, pervasive network access and constantly...
Article
'The gate' is a game-essay about the Anthropocene. As many other games, it has characters, a plot, a set of tasks to be solved, a set of deadly dangers, and is situated in a particular spatiotemporal setting: in this case, a dying forest somewhere on planet Earth, in a not-too-distant future. Conceptually, 'The gate' reflects upon the notions of co...

Torres and Tisseli ask, isn't it ironic how, as we build machines that mimic thought and language in ever more persuasive ways, the very energy that fuels those machines is making us ever more stupid? Further, by resisting the proprietary technologies commonly present in 3rd generation e-literature, the co-authors advance the notion that being peri...

En este artículo, examinaré las relaciones que emergen entre la práctica artística socialmente implicada y sus entornos, tanto inmediatos como remotos, y la forma en que estas relaciones se entretejen, a su vez, en la red del Antropoceno. Para entender estas nuevas relaciones, propondré la noción de comunidad extendida, que puede entenderse como la...

The lasting value of Plato's allegory of the cave is astonishing. Time and again, it becomes a powerful metaphor of how societies are kept (or choose to be kept) inside dark compartments, safely separated from the threats, perils and uncertainties of nature. But what lies outside that comfortable yet oppressive cavern? How can we break free from it...

Computers and networks are now accessible to millions across the globe. But many more millions have no ac- cess at all for a multitude of reasons. A lot has to do with economics and uneven distribution of wealth. But it is also due to the interfaces and applications that are the main target of the computer industry and which are mostly geared towar...
