Cyborg sentiments | Red Pepper
In a political moment when women’s rights are increasingly mobilised by racist, xenophobic and Islamophobic rhetorics, Goh reasons, any uneasy resonances or genealogical points of contact between a feminist text and the delirium or ‘dark enlightenment’ of the far right cannot go uninterrogated. Alternative projects such as Glitch Feminism and Black Quantum Futurism, among others, appear best equipped to lead the way in providing clues as to how to clarify – or create – the non-negotiable anti-fascist valences of the feminist project of xeno-hospitality (the practice of welcoming difference).

Should a Colorado library publish local news? - Columbia Journalism Review
A late-night debate in a sparsely attended city council chamber in Colorado on Tuesday opened a new front in the national conversation about how to sustain local news.

Voters in Longmont—who previously approved a publicly owned fiber-optic broadband network, and now have some of the fastest internet speeds in the nation—could be asked to consider new taxes to fund a “library district,” a special governmental subdivision that would operate a community library. Roughly a dozen residents are pushing to explore the library district to include some form of community news component.

“A thing like a modern library can fund news,” says W. Vito Montone, who moved to Longmont from California two years ago and is helping organize the project. “It’s just a function that belongs in modern information.”

Laboria Cuboniks | Xenofeminism
Is xenofeminism a programme? Not if this means anything so crude as a recipe, or a single-purpose tool by which a determinate problem is solved. We prefer to think like the schemer or lisper, who seeks to construct a new language in which the problem at hand is immersed, so that solutions for it, and for any number of related problems, might unfurl with ease. Xenofeminism is a platform, an incipient ambition to construct a new language for sexual politics–a language that seizes its own methods as materials to be reworked, and incrementally bootstraps itself into existence. We understand that the problems we face are systemic and interlocking, and that any chance of global success depends on infecting myriad skills and contexts with the logic of XF. Ours is a transformation of seeping, directed subsumption rather than rapid overthrow; it is a transformation of deliberate construction, seeking to submerge the white-supremacist capitalist patriarchy in a sea of procedures that soften its shell and dismantle its defenses, so as to build a new world from the scraps. see 48 http://generalintellectunit.net/e/028-xenofeminism-part-2/

C Magazine / Feminisms of the Future, Now: Rethinking Technofeminism and the Manifesto Form
There were six of us at the beginning: Diann Bauer, Katrina Burch, Helen Hester, Amy Ireland, Patricia Reed and myself. Since then, and even indirectly during the writing of the manifesto, others became involved . . . Laboria Cuboniks is meant to be an abstract platform, for which we don’t feel we ought to be the gatekeepers. It’s a pseudonym for anyone who’s interested in using it. Of course, it’s a bit of a gamble that the results will be consistent or useful, but it seems like an interesting gamble.

Carnegie Library - Apple Store - Apple
Inspired by the rich history of Carnegie Library, we are reimagining Apple Carnegie Library as a brand-new space to learn. Where everyone is welcome to come and discover all kinds of creativity, connect with new ideas, and share their stories... Why spend two years and probably more than $30 million renovating the 116-year-old Carnegie Library into an Apple Store?

“Probably one of the least-done things in an Apple Store is to buy something,” Cook said recently by phone. Instead, he said, people come to explore new products, of course, but also get training and services for iPhones or iPads they already own.

“We should probably come up with a name other than ‘store,’ ” he said, “because it’s more of a place for the community to use in a much broader way.”

can humanism scale?
In her 2017 book "Emergent Strategy," adrienne maree brown meets Meadows halfway by positing an individual and collective strategy "for building complex patterns and systems of change through relatively small interactions." Although avowedly math-phobic and data-phobic, brown finds power in understanding the phenomena that emerge as systems scale up. She explicitly addresses the question of scale by linking "massive" phenomena like climate change with "small" phenomena like personal relationships and asserting that small personal actions of intentional connection can scale up in ways we can't predict.

Article | Unethical numbers? A meta-analysis of library impact studies (pre-print) | ID: qn59q8754 | ScholarsArchive@OSU
Following trends in higher education that emphasize quantitative analytical approaches to learn about educational outcomes, academic libraries are increasingly attempting to quantify their impacts on student learning and demonstrate their value to the university’s educational mission. By applying learning analytics techniques to library use and instructional data, libraries have especially focused on attempting to measure the impact of the library on student GPA, retention and attainment measures. Because learning analytics studies typically require large datasets of personally identifiable information (PII), they present inherent risks to the privacy, confidentiality, and autonomy of research subjects, who often are unaware and uniformed of the data collected. To support this critique, this paper presents the results of a meta-analysis of learning analytics studies in libraries that examine the effects of library use on measures of student success. Based on the aggregate results, we argue that outcomes of these studies have not produced findings that justify the loss of privacy and risk borne by students. Moreover, we argue that basing high- impact decisions on studies with no, or low, effect sizes, and weak correlation or regression values, has the potential to harm students, particularly those in already vulnerable populations. Finally, we believe that these studies also have the potential to harm institutions that rely on these particular analytical approaches to make crucial business and educational decisions.
