BOOK CLUB: What are you reading this Summer?

Prompted by a thread in the OpenTEAM slack channel, I’m interested in what the community is reading at the moment (outside of or adjacent to work).

tell me yours! also podcasts, movies, albums, or cool birds you’ve communed with welcome.


Yes, Parable of the Sower is very inspiring!

I’m also reading Hyperion (just regular old sci fi)… but I feel that in our age where AI is beginning to be reality (and maybe soon after AGI), it’s always interesting to read Sci Fi that has thoughtful and concrete takes on where it ends up. Hyperion does that, so does Ian M Bank’s Culture series.

OMG, I’m there for this! Leaning toward Team Malm, but was chatting w/ @laurieWayne the other day about the invisible effects of climate grief on the collective unconscious and was firmly in the latter camp at that moment.

I’m in the middle of too many books right now, but highlights include Caliban and the Witch by Sylvia Federici, The Accursed Share by Georges Bataille, the above metioned Code of Capital, and this rad lil’ palm sized reader:

But maybe I still have bandwidth to add Andreas Malm to the mix???

I just finished The Ministry for the Future


Thanks everyone for this inspiring list to explore during a mid day crisis of meaning : ) Just listened to the conversation between Ladha, Murphy and Bolier - ordering their book now!

Not really reading - more photos than writing - but thumbing my way through regularly: Lo-TEK: Design by Radical Indigenism.

Slowly making my way through Graeber and Wengrew’s Dawn of Everything. Just finished Pema Chodron’s The Places That Scare You. I recommend anything by Pema, including random youtube talks.

Listening incessantly to Fred Again… and Brian Eno’s latest offering when I am not listening to Fred Again’s last album :slight_smile: Which should answer whether I am on team pipeline or team how to die in the Anthropocene.


One from Dorn today when chatting about resources for tomorrow’s FAIR Tech Registry Collabathon
