Openhere conference-festival 28th june-01 July

Open-here is kicking off a series of workshops and discussions around the themes of digital commons and open-source production/exchange this Thursday at the science gallery.

You can see the programme here: http://openhere.data.ie/

Some Provo Uni people are just back from a conference on the knowledge commons in Leicester which addressed a lot of these issues, so we’re looking forward to this. One of the highlights looks to be the discussion on ‘the communism of capital’ on Sunday at 3pm, which will (presumably) address the ambiguity of the commons with regard to capitalist valorization in the context of immaterial/cognitive capitalism, on the one hand, and forms of production/exchange which are excessive to capital, on the other.
