We believe that (non-verbal/non-human/the fediverse/queer) possibilities will be discovered through efforts to drift apart from the centrality of (verbal/human/the Internet/gender binary). The 'Dot Dot Dot User Group' is a group that plans, shares, and carries out personal/community-wise efforts that gradually relocate the foundation of our lives and existence onto decentralized/self-sustaining connections.
Dot Dot Dot User Group
'Dot Dot Dot' can mean a variety of things: dot to dots, constellations, forest, the fediverse, electronic circuits, soundscapes and ellipsis. An ellipsis is a 'blank' that someone has to fill in, a 'silence' that is a time when people stay calm and listen, and an 'indescribable' meaning that it cannot be described in words.
A new zine documenting the process of Read the Feminist Manual, a research introduction to gender discrimination in FOSS communities, and the lack of support in accommodating marginalized voices. The outcome of the project is a Firefox addon that replaces pronouns "she" and "he" with the neutral "they", intended for use in plain html pages of documentation.

Maybe a good chance, during #atnofs and many eyes watching, to share the videos made by our first peertube art residents.
