Notes from the conversation
how easy it is to fall into the techno-solutionist trap
one idea was AnrachoBot that would temp destroy info, shuffle, disrupt, info-anarchic-de.organisation
JoanaBot: bot no memery .. hmmm ... some chatters might (or notà have memory, Social Muscles(fromBrussels?) how to massage vocabularies ...
different relation between information, to bring new hierarchies;
super ambivalentL you get quickly dragged into a cybernetic thinking: responding to a situation by turning it into a presumed computability
tools that can be empowering,
automation — >
but do not lead to efficiency
programatic situation, but some situations are not computable
it's a trap!
non-involvement of some user in decision making, it's easy to get metrics, but it doesn't add always to the discussion; statistical approach is misguided
its very easy to capture statistics and metrics; but its not a questions of quantifying.
there are other apporaches of capturing note taking, or bots as publishing tools
classic tools of documentation ..
things that do not try to add intelligence ....
HelenBot: a bot to diffract and cluster a group
fragment and diffract
automated injustice grouping
why would a person be less injust
groups can separate on feeling
it opens up another logic that can be at play at once: parallel logics
possibility space that is openned when you do it in such a way (via bot logic?) not in another way
Ninabot: thinking about Fluxus
art language, conceptual art, ... what works in real life flashmobbot?
ah ok, a flashmob of bots ?
A bot as a policing authority ...
or a guide ?
asking questions to get someone self-realise ? people mchoosing their own group their is injustice involved
along job, sexuality, gender lines ..... injust structures can be self-choosen
outsourcing of dictatorship
the society of bots
coc for chatbots
invisible disabilities; — > if you are a code of conduct you cannot individually react to a situation; in real life this is more fluid but when you program it you fall into more strict rules;
calmbot: bot to slow down keystrokes when someone is typing it
gendered statement usually: "you should calm down"
slowing down is different to calming down
'quantification parade' — > a bot can count multiple actions; and make it playful or disrupt the logic of what 'matters' to be counted.
