la sala

en espaƱol: la sala

experimental, slow, online-but-offline-first community, summoned by compudanzas.

la sala



la sala is an attempt to gather people who are interested in human-scale computation, dance, poetry, and/or the outdoors, and who might be influenced by ideas of permacomputing and/or solarpunk.

it arises from the desire of experimenting with sharing and connecting with others, via digital text, without having to be always on the internet.

on one hand, we wonder what could it mean to write-while-offline: the invitation is to turn off the corresponding switches, and if possible, to be outside.

on the other hand, we are interested in thoughtful and lighthearted posts. what can it mean to move beyond the immediacy of other spaces?

due to its experimental nature, many more things are waiting to be figured out.

if you are interested in joining, make sure to contact us. however, please note that for the moment we are only accepting people that we know already.

a little bit of tech-talk

in la sala we prefer to avoid these topics (or tech-talk in general), but here we mention them because they are relevant to how it works.

la sala is an always-on and always-connected computer that helps us to share offline-first text-based messages thanks to the ssb protocol.

Scuttlebutt social network

to use ssb means that we can write and read posts, offline, from our devices running an app like Manyverse, and have them syncing whenever some of our contacts and us are online at the same time.

Manyverse - a social network off the grid

la sala is an ssb room, which means that it facilitates the sharing of contents between its members when we get online.
