*Nettime could give lessons on unlikely acts of survival.

<3 nettimers, for those in Berlin next week 🕳️ Figure it Out: Ghost Workers 🕳️ Practicing resilience in remote work systems and on platforms with talks Talks by Aleksandra Lakić and Max Haiven and Bonfire storytelling with Mara Ferreri, Valeria Graziano, Marcell Mars, Tomislav Medak & !Mediengruppe Bitnik \ Tuesday, 30. Jan 2024, 19:00 CET @, Berlin Figure it Out is a collective exploration of stories of ingenuity that people with little or no power devise when systems fail them. The evening at is focused on the inginuity of workers in the global gig factory. Particularly on tactics the workers on platforms such as Microwork, Amazon Turk or Upwork based in the Eastern Europe and the Global South contrive to fake their location or presence to cirumvent scant pay, surveillance and control that is frequently not expected from the gig workers in the Western Europe and the Global North. The upcoming event Ghost Workers focuses on practices of resilience in remote work systems and on platforms. Aleksandra Lakić [1] will be introducing her and Saša Savanović's research on the socio-economic situation and labor conditions in platform economy in South Eastern Europe. Researcher Max Haiven [2] will present his recent collaboration with rank-and-file Amazon workers to write and publish short, speculative fiction stories about 'the world after Amazon.' The subsequent bonfire storytelling is an invitation to participate in a collective reading of stories of such practices we have gathered and to contribute your own first-hand or second-hand stories and thoughts. We intend the reading to be convivial, spilling over into a shared meal.
