Scott Jung seems to be telling a story about making a place online for oppositional work (by bureaucrats) that needs to stay out of view.
Rose and Benedict want to tell a story that prompts an imagination for decolonized computing… They see this as work toward “regenerative narratives” that helps us imagine decolonized futures (referencing Octavia Butler, et al and Horkheimer & Adorno, 1944)... that work toward “right relations” that are/include reciprocal relations, companion planting, et al.
Dijia Chen has a story about the emergence, decline and remembrance of a stimulating, creative space online (ABBS), within other spaces -- broader media spaces in China, the space of academic architecture. The forum as a democratizing force that welcomes pluralism.
Ben’s story is about building spaces within spaces -- oppositional spaces within hegemonic ones -- spaces where “the hack” can happen. This reminds of the work of scenographers -- who build performance spaces -- turning spaces into resonant places (as in Ethnography By Design: Scenographic Experiments in Fieldwork).
