Sooo the character I created as part of scifi/creative/play workshop today was named Valentine Sensy...they communicate through their emotion sensors, aspiring to spread love and joy through the multiverse. Toot for 'tomato'...or Boost for 'orange' :)

Highlights today at - Informative session about predictive policing as racialized surveillance; discussing a tech utopia vs dystopia; and creating a sci-fi character and community in a separate, bilingual workshop. Sharpening rudimentary Spanish to boot. It was enlightening to observe in such a space, special attributes we envisioned for ourselves within a multiverse revolved around joy, empathy, equality..and reimagined communication that was both individualized and expansive.

dear diary and @judeswae , today continued the tradition of community and festivities at . So many incredibly intelligent, caring and committed people Learned about vpn, Feminist Principles of the Internet , and citizen journalism occurring under authoritarian regimes. Seeing activists and technologists come together to identify issues and solutions on-the-spot was inspiring. Some beach time in between...meeting TW alums...just all around amazing time! :yayblob:

officially started. The sense of community here is strong, which is very different from a lot of tech confs in general. A convening of caring journalists, activists, organizers, technologists, and even met artists, learning and teaching one another. Can't wait for the glitter party!!! coming soon, hopefully:blobcheer:

dear diary, today @dschufel and i survived taking public transit without internet access to maps like it was the 90s. Gracias Valencia! :blobcatheart:

Ok, I think I've got a pipeline in to make sense of the export video. There is room for improvement, but it's getting there.
