LELA'S CODE::: THE DAY I HAD AN AFFAIR WITH TECHNOLOGIES

[12/04/2007, Labfactory, Viena

:::konTEXTlab14::: DECIPHERING LELA'S CODE:::

Where does it come from?

donestech.net

Activist Research on women and technologies iniciated by 3 womyn which are social researchers and very keen on technologies.

Instead of repeating the question of why womyn do not participate or use technologies as much as men, we would like to know why and how womyn that alredy use and integrate tecnologies in their lifes actually do it.

If there are womyn that use technologies there must exist some kind of “code” that makes it possible. So by trying to know our ways to acces and use technologies we will try to decipher this code, named LELA.

 


The workshop in labfactory: Viena

 

This workshop would be another experiment that we believe would help in this desicphering task. To present it a bit more atracctive we would like to relate it, as we relate the whole project, to our loved sex.


TECHNOLOGIES, LIKE SEX, SEEM NOT TO BE SEEN AS SOMETHING ENJOYABLE FOR US WOMYN...
BUT
EVEN IF...

....we are educated and pressed to have children, be enroled in family tasks which it means to be an object for reproduction instead of being a subject of evolution and to have less free time to enjoy sex or tecnologies...

so...we are not usually encouraged to have sex or get involved with technologies...cause we have to be an angel mother and wife and dedicate our time to our family tasks...

see some of the historical changes: funny example

...we usually don't have womyn as models of reference in enjoying or creating technologies cause most of the known ones are men, most of the models we get are men...

...we usually feel discrimination in the language, cause if we enjoy practicing sex you are a bitch and if we enjoy with technologies we are rare or seems so unbeliaveble that we are there that our opinions do not arrive at the same stages...

like kathy sierra's case::: that evoqued to writings on man who hate women in the web>>>

...we usually do not see our views or ways to aproach sex or technologies in sex or tecnologies development...

...and so on....just to say some...would you like to add or delete any???

 

WE ARE LOADS THAT ENJOY HAVING SEXUAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL AFFAIRS!!!

::::::from those that at some stage have had, or are having, an affair with technologies:::: would be grate to talk all together:::

  1. My first time...
  2. Mmmm. I'm really feeling good and enjoying technologies...i dont want to stop...i want more...
  3. Why not using other tools to get what i want to get? Linux migrations

 

ah! bring your toy! any technological tool you've build or you use very often, and share your experience!!!

 

FOR THE REST OF THE PEOPLE THERE: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT WHAT YOU'VE HEARD??? WAS THERE ANYTHING NEW THERE??? ANY CHANGE???
