Le /tmp/lab a été invité le mercredi 21 septembre à l’émission “les nouvelles vagues” sur France Culture, dans le cadre de leur semaine sur l’action. Nous y sommes allé avec un petit camarade du Jack (Hackerspace à Montreuil).
Décerner des bullshit bingo du fond de la grotte c’est bien, mais le hackerwashing, la recuperation, ca suffit, il fallait reprendre le bâton de pèlerin et prendre la parole.
Au final, plus que d’évoquer par l’exemple des actions de chacun, nous avons pu évoquer une vision différente du hacking, loin des sempiternels clichés.
Mais ca n’a pas raté, le premier mail que l’on a recu après l’émission était signé de Cap Digital, ceux la même que l’on denoncait, mais qui ne se sont visiblement pas reconnus et qui nous propose candidement de participer a la grand messe du bullshit : Futur en S.

#México : privatización histórica de la educación, la salud y el cultibisnes
la cultura es un blanco del ultraliberalismo económico y el autoritarismo policial reinantes
Contra todos los analfabetismos, en el arte y la cultura hemos sido bien chingones, y sigue habiendo quién y con qué. Lo difícil es cómo.
los recursos para las artes materializados en becas, premios, estímulos, sueldos, compensaciones, publicaciones estériles y numeritos de lujo dirigidos por el fantasma de Porfirio Díaz.

Los del San Patricio : Desertores con causa
«Éramos cuarenta y ocho hombres sin patria y sin uniforme; esperábamos encontrar ambas cosas más allá de las líneas mexicanas.»
Los de San Patricio cuenta la historia del sargento Riley, y de cientos de irlandeses, polacos, alemanes, judíos y esclavos negros huidos del norte que cruzaron a lo largo de tres años de contienda las líneas enemigas para pelear contra un ejército en el que hordas de colonos masacraban a la población mexicana que encontraban a su paso y violaban a mujeres –y niñas, tal como relata Cacucci– con el consentimiento de la oficialidad yanki.
Lucharon como Batallón de San Patricio, en una especie de primeras brigadas internacionales de la historia, en las batallas de Monterrey, la Angostura, del Cerro Gordo y de Churubusco, esta última ya a las puertas de Ciudad de México.
- Pino Cacucci recupera en 'Los del San Patricio' la historia de los soldados que abandonaron las filas del ejército yanki para unirse al mexicano en la guerra entre Estados Unidos y el país latino de mediados del XIX.
España: en Andalucía se inicia la trata de esclavos desde el siglo XV
"(...)fue primero la demanda en Andalucía, y después en el resto de España. Sevilla se convirtió en un gran puerto esclavista, y después también Barcelona o Cádiz."
- En Sevilla en el siglo XVI y XVII podía haber entre un 10 y 15% de población negra y mestiza
Andalucía [fue] uno de los primeros sitios a donde fueron llevadas muchos escalvos. El documental 'Gurumbé, canciones de tu memoria negra', dirigido por el antropólogo y cineasta jerezano Miguel Ángel Rosales y producida por Intermedia, documenta el paso de la población esclava negra por Andalucía y su influencia en la cultura.
There is an entire ecosystem of mixtape distribution and access. There are easily tens of thousands of known mixtapes that have existed. This is a huge, already-extant environment out there, that was established, culturally critical, and born-digital.

Top Torrent Sites See Traffic Surge After ‘Shutdowns’
September 02, 2016
An Austrian court issued an interesting judgment this week. A leftist film collective, Filmpiraten, took a court case against the far-right Freedom Party of Austia (FPÖ) for copyright-infringing reuse of material published on youtube under a creative commons license. The video at issue documented antifascist protests against the Viennese Akademikerball, an annual event held by the FPÖ which has been the target of demonstrators for many years.
Filmpiraten publish their work on the website and on youtube under a BY-NC-SA license. this means that others are free to use the material without permission providing the use is non-commercial, the work is attributed to them, and that whatever work is created downstream using it is distributed under the same licensing conditions.
The FPÖ operate their own youtube channel which includes a program called FPÖ-TV, published as work in which copyright is claimed. The court case thus concerned a violation of Creative Commons licensing terms under which the Filmpiraten had made their work available. Where a would-be user of material available under a CC license does not accept the licensing conditions, they must make a licensing agreement with the copyright holder in the usual way. Unless they are using it on the basis of one of the statutory exceptions (criticism, commentary etc).
In any case the Filmpiraten were successful in the Viennese court, so this is a significant decision for anyone interest in the treatment of CC licenses in the courts. The FPÖ will appeal. The newspaper report from Der Standard is available here (German).

Hard to believe that only four or five years ago the Pirate Party (PP) were enjoying a German honeymoon, winning large numbers of votes and entering four regional parliaments. In the Berlin election in 2011 their results were so strong that they did not have enough candidates to fill all the seats won; candidates who ran with with little hope of getting into district assemblies were instead elected to the major-league Senate – the citywide parliament. But this unexpected triumph was to be their zenith, thereafter the party formed a circular firing squad.
During the five years of the Berlin Senate the PP parliamentary group had five chairs and co-chairs, of these four are no longer members of the party (although all continue to sit as part of the Pirate group) – Alexander Spies is the last of this band carrying a party card. Two of these former chairs were among 35 former Berlin Pirates who published an open letter in January announcing their defection to Die Linke (the Left party) while another flirts with joining the SPD. Three other PP members elected to the Senate have also departed. This means that having started the Parliamentary session with 15 representatives, they now have 8.
A further twist to the current Berlin election is that former national chairperson of the Pirates, Bernd Schlömer, is running as a leading candidate for the FDP (Liberals) having joined them last October. This is less surprising that it may seem as both FDP and Die Linke (as well as the Greens and the Pirates) once participated in the Freiheit Statt Angst! (Freedom Not Fear!) demonstrations, an annual field day of the forces opposed to mass surveillance/social control which used to take place in Berlin each September.
Berlin Election 2016
Polling currently puts the PP on 3%, well below the 5% threshold required to be allocated any seats in the Parliament. As in 2011 they are running an eye-catching campaign focused on issues where they have campaigned effectively: housing, the investigation into the billion euro airport scandal, against racism. But the nature of their public meltdown both at national and local level after 2012 has wrecked their credibility. (If one wants to vote for a neo-Dadaist anti-party Berlin already has one, die Partei, who also have a European MEP!)
The departure of former members for other parties also undermines their position as self-appointed interpreters of the magic powers of technology. This should not be underestimated: until 2012 they were effectively identified as the ‘party of the internet’, the people who wanted to usher in a streamlined tomorrow, the epitome of progress and forward thinking. But this stranglehold on the tech-dream is over.
The Berlin PP was regarded as representing the party’s left-wing and some of its votes will now return to Die Linke or move to the Greens. Meanwhile, populist discontent has shifted decisively right after the controversy over refugee policy met the gunpowder of the sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve. electorally this means pay dirt for the Alternative fur Deutschland (AFD), a toxic brew of xenophobes, alienated conservatives, economic liberals and populists, who will almost certainly enter the city Parliament this month.

The tech giants thought they would beat old businesses but the health and finance industries are using data troves to become more, not less, resilient
The chances that, in a few years’ time, people will be able to receive basic healthcare without interacting with a technology company became considerably smaller after recent announcements of two intriguing but not entirely unpredictable partnerships.
One is between Alphabet, Google’s parent company, and pharmaceuticals giant GlaxoSmithKline. The two have agreed to form a $715m company to focus on the new field of bioelectronics, which involves developing miniature electrical implants capable of treating a number of chronic diseases.
It was a mistake to think it would disrupt other industriesas it had music sales, advertising and news
Far from ushering in a new, flexible era, it may make the very kind of capitalism that it claims to despiseContinue reading...
