The newest of the arguments that make the case we should be using independent and autonomous social networks like the one on memefest.org!

I remember Memefest 2014, here in Melbourne.
Our theme was Dialogue, more precisely "Radical Intimacies: Dialogue in our Times". Giving my lecture at the symposium I was explaining how much effort we were putting into programming and designing an autonomous online social network on memefest.org and how funny and sad it is that so many artists, activists etc. actually use pretty much exclusively Facebook to network and self promote. What we could observe back than was a strong indicator or what is happening now. Facebook is not a place for non profits, activists, artists groups, because our outreach is dictated by how much we are willing to pay. Not paying for our posts on FB simply means our reach will be super small, like 3 % of our following on a FB page. It is very important to understand this. Memefest is a free for all social network, no surveillance, no data mining, no advertising, no payment, and a community that is actually reading the posts, not just scanning and linking them. So lets keep on being active here and nurture this space, and make use of it!

Read about the ZAD, the largest squat on Europe, in the Guardian article bellow. After years of successfully defending the ZAD from the French authorities a new wave of threatening eviction is under way.

"The story of “la ZAD” in western France began more than half a century ago, when the French government earmarked the site for a new airport as part of a plan to create a transatlantic “Great West” gateway to France and Europe.

Years of consultations, arguments and indecision supposedly ended in 2008, when the €580 million project was given official approval. The squatters began arriving the same year, claiming they were responding to an appeal from farmers fighting compulsory purchase orders. No airport-related construction has since taken place on the 1,650-hectare site."

Here a link to the Food Democracy book Webinar I did this morning with Francesca Zampollo and food designers from around the world- it is now online.

Note, it was 5 am for me here in Melbourne and I am not a coffee drinker! :) I presented our wonderful Food Democracy book more in detail and after that we had a good discussion on several issues presented in the book.

Here another link to the book with links where you can get your own copy

Here an interview tactical media guru and director of the Institute of Network culture in Amsterdam Geert Lovink made with me on the addictive power of Memes. It is their crucial nature in my opinion and never it became as explicit as now. It is crucial to understand these characteristics of memes in order to develop responses to the current media environment. There is also a crucial shift in the way visual memes operate and in the very logic of communication design.

Great interview Oliver about addictive power of memes today, I really enjoyed reading it. Do you know, or anyone else, have an example of a large company that has used memes in a campaign to create financial profit & can you share a link to it? I'm just curious if the company meme results look too manufactured due to a big company budget & maybe producing a space for it to thrive so it potentially becomes less effective as compared to naturally organic occurring memes made from a social action for example. At the moment I'm basically looking for a comparison on the high design memes to low design memes if that makes sense.
