LOCALHOST Vancouver is a week of tech, media, & other explorations of how to create things we can own together.

LOCALHOST

The week of July 21st to 28th, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) are in Vancouver for a global gathering of people who build and define standards that run the Internet.

We're gathering the Vancouver community to come together and participate in a week of events around tech, media, and other explorations of creating things we can own together.

  • What does it mean to buy local – for software?
  • Where is your Internet made?
  • Your digital art deserves a home you can own.
  • Tech doesn’t live in San Francisco. 
  • How does the Internet work?

Drawing on practices of local-first , solar-powered servers , folk software , and permacomputing , Our Networks 2024 explores transitional technologies and forms of computing that break from always-on connectivity. Over the course of the event, we will investigate histories, tools, and approaches like these that allow us to reframe what computing could mean when the internet, and the cloud, are optional.
