“Grrls Need Modems”
When we learn about internet history, we hear about the grandfathers who created the architecture and protocol. This history is revised through the CYBERFEMINISM INDEX, a visual introduction to the social layer of the stack and three decades of online activism and radical net art.
The lecture title is a quote by Geekgirl (aka Rosie Cross) from 1993.
