Cyberfeminism : Revolution
Tactical use of terms
PAR CORNELIA SOLLFRANK - 2002-12-16 12:22:44
Speaking about the political ‚left' and being ‚leftist' nowadays may sound a bit clumsy but still can be relevant if the issue is clearly defined. But speaking about ‚revolution', and being ‚revolutionary' in fact seems to completely lack any realism. ¶¶¶
How to become a cyberfeminist ?
PAR CORNELIA SOLLFRANK - 2002-12-09 11:58:10
[logo]As initiator of the Old Boys Network (www.obn.org) - the first cyberfeminist alliance - and author of a few well-known documents and artworks about cyberfeminism, I often get requests from enthusiastic cyberfem newbies asking (in effect) "how can I learn to be a cyberfeminist ?". Oddly enough there don't seem to be any other FAQs or web documents that address this vital question, so here's mine. ¶¶¶

TCPA stands for the Trusted Computing Platform Alliance, an initiative led by Intel.

Can you trust your computer ?  
PAR RICHARD M. STALLMAN - 2002-10-25 10:50:32
The technical idea underlying treacherous computing is that the computer includes a digital encryption and signature device, and the keys are kept secret from you. (Microsoft's version of this is called "palladium.") Proprietary programs will use this device to control which other programs you can run, which documents or data you can access, and what programs you can pass them to. These programs will continually download new authorization rules through the Internet, and impose those rules automatically on your work. ¶¶¶
"The war on freedom and democracy"
an analysis of the effects on civil liberties and democratic culture in the EU
PAR TONY BUNYAN - 2002-09-27 09:15:25
The "war on terrorism" has turned into an ongoing "war on freedom and democracy" which is now setting new norms - where accountability, scrutiny and human rights protections are luxuries to be curtailed or discarded in defence of "democracy". ¶¶¶
