Constant Padology

The article Constant Padology focuses on an essential component of Constant’s tool-ecology, a simple piece of software that has permeated most activities and practices, from internal organization, to collective writing situations and publishing efforts: Etherpad.

Constant’s Etherpad-lite installation has been a technical companion for nearly ten years now, and is a fundamental tool in our daily practices. This essay annotates the aspects of the software that make it versatile and the different roles it fulfills, that altogether describe the type of chosen technological horizon that we try to foster in our practices.

This article is written by Martino Morandi and is the last one of a series of six that MARCH, journal of art & strategy, invited Constant to publish in the context of the journal’s first long term inquiry "Publishing As Protocol".
