The Human Side of Software

PRESENTED ON MAR 21, 2019
IN AARHUS @ VOL 39

Kristofer Carta has a winding past, moving from politics to sociology to software development. Kristofer feels that people do not understand software well enough - Who it comes from, and what that means.

If software is just theories written down in code, then what happens when the core of writers is almost uniformly from the same demographic? "Software is people", Kristofer says, as he urges us to focus on getting all children and especially women interested in this field.

Life Needs Internet

BY JEROEN VAN LOON
@ VOL 10 ON APR 22, 2014

Life Needs Internet aims to document how we currently feel about the Internet. This differs per culture, generation, country or even city; there is no global digital culture. While in 2013 39% of the world’s population had access to the Internet, writing a letter is still a technology that is roughly available to anyone. It’s a simple, low-cost and low-tech way to document thoughts and feelings. The global influence of the Internet is preserved through a traditional medium; each handwritten letter is a unique cultural artefact. Together these letters create an archaeological insight into digital culture.

What Europe could learn from nerds

BY VALENTIN CALOMME

The European Union is facing a crisis. A large part of the population either does not understand it, finds it intrusive, or even thinks that it is simply not needed, sometimes all of the above.
