My talk "Solarpunk, Cyberpunk, Popculture: technological narratives tl;dr" will premiere on HOPE2020 this Monday 27th of July 15:00 CEST / 11 EST!
Have you heard about The Story Engine by Peter Chiykowski? http://www.storyenginedeck.com/
Together we made a free app to generate your own story prompts deck: https://cardcreator.storyenginedeck.com/
You can read more about it at my blog: https://alxd.org/the-story-engine-card-creator.html#the-story-engine-card-creator
My pick would be Legacy: Life Among The Ruins ( https://ufopress.co.uk/our-games/legacy-life-among-ruins/ ) - a post-post apocalypse where you rebuild the society, controlling both a single character and their faction. About few years pass between each session and you're encouraged to play generations of characters, seeing as previous choices influenced today.
I will give my talk "Technological Narratives: Solarpunk, Cyberpunk, Popculture" at this year's #36C3 ! Day 3 (29.12), 13:30, Art&Play Stage!

It's not Creative Commons, but as he writes:
"You're welcome to use it, but note there are various other people using it as well (and it has also been used for the cover of a book www.unlockingsustainablecities.org ) - I hope it inspires as many people as possible"
Keep in mind that he organizes a Solarpunk Art competition I mentioned in my previous toot!
I was looking for #CreativeCommons #solarpunk #art and I found this awesome CC-BY-SA-NC piece by David Revoy: http://www.davidrevoy.com/article201/fantasy-landscape
(thanks to <CalimeroTeknik> for showing me that!)
Coming back home from #35C3 I wanted to introduce an awesome Creative Commons artist to you: Lisa "Mullana" Schmidt to you!

European colonialism left Africa with a lot of standards unadjusted to local needs.
Dress codes of schools all around Sub-Saharan Africa require young girls to have straight hair. The problem is that Africans have naturally curly hair, requiring lengthy and expensive straightening, putting a burden on poor families and enforcing white beauty standards.
Mugethi Gitau gave a great talk about it: https://re-publica.com/en/session/politics-natural-hair
I just found out that most of the youtube radio animation loops I kept seeing in the last months are a work of one brilliant artist: Juan Pablo Machado - http://jpmachado.art/en/about/
Coincidentally, they would be absolutely perfect for #GliderInk

As probably the most socially experienced member of the 'space she loves communities and working together. Sadly, some of the hackers refuse to respect non-programmers, and she's "only" a competent sound engineer.
Amanda fights for #feminism and wants to show people the regenerative anarchism.
She's emotionally mature, sex-positive and open to talk about it. She wants to be a protective "big sis" for Suz and introduce her to adult life.
#Monopoly for millenials
"Forget real estate: you can't afford it anyway."
It's a real thing. #capitalism pretending it's aware of itself.
They are working on open hardware gynaecological tools and emergency kits, trying to decolonize a medical field which wasn't created _for_ women.

While I'd like to limit how much visually dark themes there are, this one is marvellous.

She was born without a hand and wants people to perceive her as whole. She doesn't want to wear a useless prosthesis just to fit in! Instead she modifies all the technology around her to be able to use it naturally.
That's a story which shows humanity behind the tech, real needs and struggles. It helps people understand hacker culture much better than a "tech whizz".
