Pinned toot

If you behave like a techbro (see toot above), you will be rewarded with sarcasm, then dismissal.

Last but not least, just know that I enjoy (and therefore post / retoot) things that can end up being quite stressful and dry for a lot of people, such as Anthropocene related articles, videos, figures, etc.

I try my best to label such posts with hashtags that you can hide like etc

/warning

Thanks and welcome!

Also, if you are not willing to put yourself into question, put tech and design's myths into question, step back from our current culture of over-consumption and extractivism, if you can't make a difference between cordial conversation online and demanding debate and time from someone (especially a woman) only on your terms, I'm afraid we will not get along that well.

Hi to new followers! (thanks @vincib :D)

Welcome to my feed. Some toots might feel rough, it's by design.

Make sure you have carefully read my bio and that you agree with the following statements. Else, I'm afraid my feed will not be a place of joy for you:

- Elon Musk and similar billionaires will not save us
- Billionaires should not exist
- Uber, Google, Amazon, Facebook & co MUST be regulated/dismantled
- Trans women are women
- Punch nazis
- Degrowth & low-tech are the only way to go

Call for ideas for an online design sprint we are currently running!

Do you have in mind a product or service that was socially unacceptable or taboo that became vastly accepted later on?

[FR] Une intervention qui tombe à point ! Alexandre Monnin twitter.com/aamonnz nous parle de notre "monde organisé" (terme justement pointé par Emmanuel Bonnet) et de l'omnipotence (illusoire ?) des organisations.

L'occasion de sortir cette citation d'Henry Mintzberg qui illustre le propos d'Alexandre.
