Ocell is back and it makes me happy: https://twitter.com/flancian/status/1411357189097328648 . She came back worse for wear (shaved in four spots, with the right eye a bit twitchy/as if irritated by something that happened during the night). But after spending several hours cleaning herself and relaxing she already looked happier. Then she decided to call it a night early and go to her favourite deep night spot at like 5pm, ha. I think she'll wake up refreshed and rejuvenated in the morning!
The agorae and assemblies of Ancient Greece could similarly be understood as facilitating forms of many-to-many communication, and doing so in ways that, albeit imperfectly, embody some of the democratic processes common to anarchist and radical politics
Reading Chapter 2 of Anarchist Cybernetics I am stoked. It (briefly) mentions slime mould and bird flocks as examples of self-organisation in nature. I studied this kind of thing in Evolutionary and adaptive systems. And it mentions the potential for decentralised Political organisation afforded by the many-to-many communication of e.g. social media. Like Free, Fair and Alive this book is tying together a lot of my interests in one place.
