Par strawdog, le 2015-06-24 08:04



This Saturday June 27th at 18h join us at Foulab in retro life with a view of BBS The Documentary. The series in eight episodes explores the world of the BBS all the way to it's replacement by the internet. As an example of technological autonomy BBSs were crafted, operated, and moderated by the community for the community. They faced repression from the state and capital and prevailed in the pursuit of fun and profit. The practice of BBBs is in stark contrast with today's commercial social media monopolies who sell users' data on the market and provide it on request to the state.

The Canadian Civil Liberties Associationis gearing up to launch a new online space for the public to learn about their civil liberties. As part of the launch, the CCLA is visiting community organizations, advocacy groups, and other stakeholders to build a blueprint for the project's development post-launch.

The CCLA will be visiting Foulab on Thursday May 14th from 5:30 — 7:30pm for an informal get together — bring a friend, and your ideas about civil liberties in Canada!

What content about civil liberties, rights and freedoms do you feel is currently missing or hard to access? What issues should the CCLA be focusing on in the coming year? Come have a beer and talk about it with Lex Gill and Dr. Brenda McPhail from the CCLA, this Thursday!

(This main event will be in English, but the Q&A and discussion afterwards will be bilingual.)

A NOTER: L'heure a été modifié
Foulab prépare sa deuxième Journée « Expulsion des Machins Inutiles », cette fois en synchro avec notre nettoyage du printemps!

Voici comment cela fonctionne: apporter toutes les bébelles indésirables dont vous voulez vous débarrasser. Ou n’apportez rien. Ensuite, regardez à travers la pile de ces trucs et prenez n’importe quel bidule qui frappe votre imaginaire! À la fin de la journée, tous les machins non réclamés SERONT RÉCYCLES. Donc ne laisser derrière que vous pensez vouloir garder! "

Que ce soit pour bouger, s’allumer, envoyer une image ou changer de couleur, l’ensemble des appareils d’éclairage et bien d’autres bidules reçoivent leurs ordres grâce au protocole ANSI E1.11 - 2008, USITT DMX512-A.

Je vous invite à vous bâtir une interface « DMX» à l’aide du contrôleur Arduino, à découvrir des programmes de contrôle d’éclairage et à discuter de tous les mythes et questions autour du DMX.

L’invitation s’adresse à tous les curieux, utilisateurs potentiels, artistes, créateurs, techniciens de scène, concepteur et autre bidouilleur!

Que vous ayez un possible projet ou l’installation du plus contrat d’éclairage de votre vie, venez vivre et échanger sur standard de communication qu’est le DMX, l’esprit de camaraderie et d’apprentissage sont à la base de cette rencontre.

Zines, Comics & Crypto: Zine Release Party & Double Workshop (1-FEB-2015 13h-16h)

Zines, Comics & Crypto: Zine Release Party & Double Workshop
Sunday, Feb. 1st, 1-4pm @ Foulab, 999 du Collège, Suite 33B (2nd floor), metro Place St-Henri.
Facebook event here.

After traveling from Berlin and spending a month in Montréal with the Fight Boredom Zine Residency, zinester and activist Comet Crowbar is ready to release issue #15 of her zine, Infecticitis. This 3-hour hangout session is in two parts:

1-2pm Drawing & Comics workshop (Lynda Barry style)
During this hour we’ll play some drawing games, make comics, loosen up and get silly, and try to erase the idea of “but I can’t draw!” from our minds. Everyone can draw, and that’s what we’re gonna do. Bring your favorite pens and crayons (some paper and pens will be provided).

2:30-3:30 Introduction to PGP Email Encryption
First we will discuss why surveillance is harmful and affects everyone, and try to dismantle the apathetic idea of “but I have nothing to hide” as an excuse. Then we’ll explain the difference between symmetrical vs. asymmetrical cryptography, what a “keypair” is, how to verify your key, and what programs are needed to get it running on your computer. This workshop is coming from the understanding that it can be quite intimidating to learn all this “computer stuff” if you’re not that tech-savvy. We will smash that idea by making this a safer-space to ask questions, share knowledge, and use accessible language that everyone can understand. I am not an expert but I am happy to share what I know. Crypto is your friend! (P.S. One week later, FemHack will be delving into some more email encryption stuff! http://foufem.wiki.orangeseeds.org/FemCrypt_-_A_workshop_on_How_to_Encrypt_your_Emails/)

You will also find: Snacks, tea, nooks for reading/chatting and lots of zines! Come pick up a hot-off-the-press copy of Infecticitis #15 and Comet’s recent book, Tumble the Boulder – The Surveillance State and the American Empire. There will be a table of zines by queers, feminists, and anarchists from Fight Boredom Distro and a selection of zines on digital security from Comet’s Raumschiff Distro.

About the facilitator: Comet Crowbar is a white cis queer lady and is a co-founder and organizer of the Zine Fest Berlin. She’s passionate about self-publishing, cryptography, plants and weaving. Come say hi.

This event is a safer-space. A “safer space” means that we don’t tolerate any form of oppression or harassment, such as sexism, racism, transphobia, homophobia and other such BS! Please be respectful to each other and ask consent before you touch someone. Children are welcome, but as Foulab contains power tools and other hazards, they must be closely supervised by an adult for safety reasons.

Unfortunately the space is not wheelchair accessible.
