“meet-your-server-friend” is an initiative to build affective, intimate documentations about and relationships with the physical and material infrastructure supporting community networks.
one component of this project is a website that details the technologies, codes, machines, cables, people, services, care and labor that went into the self-hosting efforts of internet-undercommons.
i also initiated a webring, which links several web-based documentations various server friends taking care of communally-hosted projects and collective networks by friends and collaborators.
i also made a meet-your-server-friend tutorial page that seeks to invite more people to attend to the virtual and material infrastructures underpinning our digital existence. the html-text format is an experimental experiment that tries to practice coding as writing, and writing as coding, blurring the boundaries between the two.
