Protocols are the infrastructure of the internet, any data that moves in an open manner needs a protocol. I'll make a quick overview and talk a bit about the current state of alternative social media protocols. Protocols are usually made by developers for developers, but I'm hoping we can together come up with alternative ways to design and think about protocols. Perhaps in groups of 2, or similar. Hopefully we'll get into things that are hard to digitize.

Schedule & practical information:

What to bring? Nothing really. You could think of a problem, a rule, a convention, a social/pressing/funny situation: Something non-digital that involves more than one person. Big or small, (although small and specific is easier and more fun). Then we try and make protocol out of that.
