The Original Proposal for the Documentation Project is here.
4 (iv) Context, Recombinable Matter
It would be good to add a short description here. Mute have already asked for an article about the project.
As we enter the twentieth century, a paradigm shift in production is resulting in an informationalisation of the sphere of social life. This is taking place simulataneously across the globe as capitalism shapes new technologies to its will in order to utilise the growth in the productive capacity that these changes herald. This is leading to new inequalities, new systems of power and knowledges and new forms of state oppression.
This wiki is intended to debate, contest and create new concepts to contribute to critical thinking and creative action around these issues. To discuss movements in Informational Capitalism and seize potentialities, contradictions and alternative spaces.

Upcoming Events Opportunities to meet face to face
The Euraction Hub would like your news items on their open publishing page: http://hubproject.net
We agreed to try the infoanarchy wiki and see if integration is possible. We need some way to disentangle KF changes from other recent changes
- Best way is probably to prefix KF- to all new pages so they are visually obviously different on the recent changes list… (DMB)
