Klingt spannend, deshalb quasi der Tipp des Tages …

Invitation to join the network (a series of events, a reader, workshops, online debates, campaigns etc.)
Concept: Geert Lovink (Institute of Network Cultures/HvA, Amsterdam)
and Korinna Patelis (Cyprus University of Technology, Lemasol)
Thanks to Marc Stumpel, Sabine Niederer, Vito Campanelli, Ned Rossiter, Michael Dieter, Oliver Leistert, Taina Bucher, Gabriella Coleman, Ulises Mejias, Anne Helmond, Lonneke van der Velden, Morgan Currie and Eric Kluitenberg for their input.
The aim of this proposal is to establish a research network of
artists, designers, scholars, activists and programmers who work on
‘alternatives in social media’. Through workshops, conferences, online dialogues and publications, Unlike Us intends to both analyze the economic and cultural aspects of dominant social media platforms and to propagate the further development and proliferation of alternative, decentralized social media software.
If you want to join the Unlike Us network, start your own initiatives in this field or hook up what you have already been doing for ages,
subcribe to the email list. Traffic will be modest. Soon there will be a special page/blog for the initative on the INC website. Also an independent social network will be installed shortly, using alternative software. More on that later!
