Post-Media Lab has followed the inspiring invitation by Ubalab to come to the initial event in Ubatuba (just south of Sao Paolo) to spark a new model for progressive regional development drawing in all of the greater regional and to some extent international scene of post-medial acteurs and projects. all this has been made possible first and foremost by different llong traditions of media-activism and -intervention, not least represented by the metareciclagem-network that exists for around 20 years now. flowing out of this and broader networked traditions is the Ubalab, that has also established some willingness by the new local PT government to probe larger and more systematical involvements of post-media culture into progressive initiatives within a local political context.

a report from the state of affairs in the »grey politics« of social subsumption, i.e. data and citizen surveillance.
it was delivered by someone who knows the field quite inside-out, Jacob Applebaum (a programmer of the anonymity-software TOR). this video is from the keynote at the 29th CCC-congress, recently held in Hamburg.

ISEA going wildly post-medial:
» Re-envisioning Art, Technology and Nature
Our species will survive neither by totally rejecting nor unconditionally embracing technology – but by humanizing it.
labSurLab event Quito 2012, June 15th-23rd (- incl. PML-presentation @ June 16th)
the post-media lab is participating and presenting itself in the labSurlab network meeting in Quito - thereby taking part in the 'turn to the south'.
here it seems we can only parttake in the spirit of 'la minga', listening and learning form a network of different labs and projects, invested in communal and shared post-media activity, vested with a well articulated tradition »of confluence, dialogue, creation and production of knowledge among initiatives and projects that are brewing around free culture, art, science, technology, free software and communities«.

originally founded by George Collins, Marc Crépon, Catherine Perret, Bernard Stiegler and Caroline Stiegler, there is a project of critique not unlike the Post-Media Lab.
with a little more tonality of an idealism of »the life of the mind«, and a little less focus on alternative socialities, it attacks the situation, which the PML pretty similarly tries to adress in it´s »The Subsumption of Sociality« sub-theme. ars industrialis fears that we have reached a conjecture where [ more ] about ars industrialis
