Activities

Every month, we organize a meetup in Chiang Mai that focuses on a specific technology-related topic, bringing together experts in the field and creating a community space for dialogue and collaborative learning.

Some of our past events have focussed on themes such as mis/disinformation in digital spaces; Blockchain for identity, and commons; and Generative AI and satellite imagery.

Community

Based in Chiang Mai, a recognised hub for digital nomads, education, and civil society, our network draws on both local and global communities that have a presence in the region.

Our community includes academics, digital rights activists, researchers, digital nomads, journalists, Web3 builders, educators, entrepreneurs, artists, policy makers, among others.

Towards a Digital Pluriverse

The document “Towards a Digital Pluriverse” explores the impact of technology on society and advocates for a different approach to digital spaces that promotes collective autonomy, shared ownership, and meaningful choice. It critiques the current trends of centralization, enclosure, and control in the digital realm and emphasizes the importance of building technological futures that prioritize plurality, regenerative scale, and polycentrism.

Cosmo-local Identities

In the context of technology and humanity, the article discusses the need for a scalable and networked form of social cohesion as national identity diminishes. It highlights the importance of finding and reinforcing networks of consensus to replace crude forms of identity. The author explores the concept of cosmo-local identities based on the commons as a potential solution to hold humanity together during times of chaotic transition.
