Darius, who is also known as Tiny Subversions on the www, is an internet artist and a researcher on the future of social networks.
Based out of Portland, Oregon, he has recently undertaken a fellowship at the Mozilla Foundation in Berlin which resulted in “Run your own social” - a manual that teaches anybody how to create and run a social network for their close circle of friends.
We sat down with Darius at The Conference in Malmö, Sweden, to talk about:
- Darius’ journey from being a video game developer to blogging to researching the history & culture of the social web
- Why we should move away from big social networks — and how that leads to more power to individual people and communities
- How you can start your own private social network to share information, discuss topics and host movie nights with 50 of your friends
Here is episode #29 of the co-matter podcast with Darius Kazemi.
A big thank you to The Conference for hosting this conversation.
