The inimitable Sarah Jenny and I — wearing our femmetech hats as the Hart Collective — are going to the US Social Forum in Detroit this June! Our workshop, DIY New Media: Creating and Maintaining an Activist Presence using Websites, Blogs, Audio/Podcasts and SMS was accepted this week. We’ll be steamrolling our way through demystifying URLs, servers, FTPs, Blogs vs. (?) HTML sites, free coding software, privacy, adding media, and all kinds of ways you can get yourself online for low/no money.
We’ve given this workshop several times starting in 2007: at Women, Action and the Media at MIT/Boston, The Anarchist Bookfair in NYC, The Desiree Alliance Conference in SF and Chicago, and at the Hart Collective in Brooklyn.
To fun(d)raise to get ourselves to the USSF, we’re giving a series of BDSM 201 workshops: one on Bondage May 30, and one on Edge Play June 10. Now that’s intersectionality!!
