here's a link to the ind.ie manifesto, whose credo is:
'Your tools shouldn't spy on you.'
Aral Balkan, one of the founding members, also promotes the idea of affording legal 'protection' for the digital self in somewhat the same way that our corporeal self is 'protected' by laws. (at what cost? like a copyright that supports existing, priviledged power structures?)
i'm wondering how this can be brought into alignment with the thinking of Donna Haraway in A Cyborg Manifesto, where diffuse boundaries, human-machine-animal 'morphologies' and the refusal to establish a fixed identity become a tactic of building social bodies, alliances, sites that might be called communities.
how can anonymity, fused/multiple identities and non-identity function as a tactic against technological control?
ideas welcome. i love talking to strangers.
