Supremacy, in all it’s forms, is ultimately a narrative that we tell ourselves. It is these stories which determine who is valuable, who is authority, who can live and who must die. It was a story of supremacy that allowed Captain Cook(ed) to report to his superiors that the continent now known as ‘Australia’ was Terra Nullius aka uninhabited. He asserted that the people he did encounter were incapable of conceptualizing land ownership or governance. So continues one of the worlds most powerful stories-colonisation: ownership-slavery-murder-child abduction. This talk looks to explore the power and possibility of INTENT. What is possible and what limitations have we already created before coding even begins. What narratives are we imagining through P2P technology and what worlds are we creating? Is tech inherently a colonial space? How do we create tech that is not only decolonial but anti-colonial? While situated in one of the world's longest standing nightmare's how do we create tech that breeds Indigenous survival, resistance and renewal.
What will You learn?
- Start a conversation about importance of learning how the past effects our present
- Start a conversation around decolonisation in P2P
- Give some insight into needs of some Indigenous folks of the dweb
