Zineing with (F)eminist (H)ack (M)eetings @SPREAD Zinefest (at Sign Gallery at Groningen), with lots of scanning, printing, binding, patching, folding, annotating, re-reading, messing.

It was amazing to see such a rich zine collection made by the hosts of SPREAD from feminist, artist zine makers from far away.

Thanks all the zine contributors who send their feminist zines and participants of the workshop.

Check out the FemLib with links from the publications of the contributors in the wiki :)

With @estragon and Julia

European night train network! Didn’t know until now that there is such an elaborated proposal by the German Greens. Imagine direct connections Vienna–Bordeaux, Helsinki–Berlin, Munich–Palermo, Stockholm–Prague, Glasgow–Frankfurt …

Another little generator project. This is a tool made for the art event Lesbiennale (, aimed at the organisation team so that they can create pictures for their social network accounts by playing with the automated layout of the tool. Then PNG files are generated and can be downloaded.

About the wildfires here in Greece. It is frustrating and sad to read accounts of survivors pointing out that no firefighters were there to help. The state sent evacuation messages too early, in fear of being accused of inflicting deaths. They also didn't allow fire trucks to enter forest paths for the same reason. We had fires that lasted more than a week.

I wrote a single file NNTP server library in python with no dependencies that allows you to build NNTP servers/bridges for your communities with ease! I've added two example servers, one static one and one that mirrors the top posts from hacker news

For a while now I’m playing with ImageMagick 7 and Bash scripting and sine functions to generate (text) collages. I created a public repository to wrap up the project for now.

Some of the results will be part of a book coming in spring/summer 2022 🎉
