It is happening again! https://eclectictechcarnival.org/enthusiasm-is-contagious/
We are a collective body of feminists who critically explore and develop everyday skills and information technologies in the context of free speech, free software and open hardware. We chew on the roots of control and domination, disrupt patriarchal societies and imagine better alternatives.
Eclectic Tech Carnival (/etc) is a gathering that happens whenever and wherever someone feels a need to organize it and finds the resources and collaborators to do so.
