12 noon Sunday 28th November at HTTP/ Furtherfield
In the wake of the FBI seizure of Indymedia Uk's commercial servers, Irational.Org, Furtherfield and Ivan Pope are hosting a workshop to look at models for 'collective servers'.
We wish to ask a series of questions regarding security, legal responsibility, autonomy, collectivism and the 'terms of engagement' between users and administrators of these data 'homes'.
With a reinvigorated notion of the 'Commons' through online information systems we propose to discuss pragmatic policy and constitution in relation to servers and their communities and arrive at some workable models that satisfy the geeks and the non-techies, the artists and the activists.
