Offline Networks Unite! Field Notes

After the great turnout TM, a few of us talked and thought it would be
interesting to capture some further reflections from the off.networks
I would like to curate a collection ‘field notes’ from our discussion
(this was inspired by the Critical Media Lab booklet that was floating
around at TM). Different from manifest/o, it would showcase individual
voices here, and thought it might be a good way to display both
commonalities and differences between each of the projects here. Loose
thoughts, ideas encouraged.
I would like to ask each of you the following three questions:
1. What are Off Networks? Conceptually, the on-off dichotomy doesn’t seem
to work in all cases as previously mentioned - is a beside- para-, sub-,
alter- or hybrid thereof?
2. Why are Off Networks necessary today?
3. What are the current blindspots, words of caution? (ease of use,
precarity, instability? Any specific accounts of what can go/went wrong)
You can reply to this thread or here in the shared document (towards the
bottom, just cut and paste the questions with your responses):
