Blurb

The H&D Bulletin is an occasional publication that culminates practical and reflective articles, conversations, scripts and manuals, experimental, poetic, visual, or otherwise speculative contributions from H&D coop members, critical friends, guests, and participants of our activities. It is published on the H&D website, and the H&D mailing list, and distributed via our social media channels. Printed versions are distributed through the H&D network whenever there is an opportunity. This edition of the H&D bulletin was assembled, edited and designed using Octomode, an Etherpad-to-pdf publishing tool developed by our friends at Varia.

Colophon

This bulletin has been designed with Octomode, a collective editing space for PDF making, using Etherpad, Paged.js, and Flask developed by our friends at Varia. Varia is a Rotterdam-based collective and space for developing collective approaches to everyday technology. [1](https://varia.zone/en/)

“Inspired by the non-centralized, tentacular cognition capabilities of the octopus, we imagined a space in which the artificial boundaries of writing and designing can be crossed; where writing, editing, and designing can be done in one environment simultaneously, allowing the format to influence the matter and vice-versa.”
