Hi AoiR

If you, like us, are about to enter a year of teaching like no other, 
and you are hard at work re-thinking *everything* we might have a 
helpful resource : https://hackcur.io/

Hack_Curio is a video exhibit about hackers that covers a range of 
topics that precipitate out of hacking: disinformation; the visual 
culture of the last 40 years; media stereotypes; disability and 
technology; the economics of information; the history of computing; 
surveillance; whistle blowing and leaking; cyberpunk; gaming; equity and 
inclusion in computing and silicon valley...Each video comes paired with 
a paragraph or two written by a scholar, hacker, or journalist. The 
videos and entries are short but also try to a make a point or two which 
your students can learn from, take apart, rework, or expand on. By Sept 
we should have 60 entries.

You can check out the full list here https://hackcur.io/the-list/ or 
explore the site by category or tags.

If you use it, do tell us how it worked!

Although there are more entries being written, we are taking a small 
break from soliciting entries so we can focus on putting together our 
syllabi but if you are interested in writing for us, please do reach out 
after September 15th. We have a collection of 100 + clips on all sorts 
of topics and plan on publishing for the next few years.

If you have other digital-type resources you love and that work well in 
the classroom, we'd love to hear about them as well.

A few others I really like are:

The Eugenics Archive https://eugenicsarchive.ca/

A is for Another: A Dictionary of AI https://aisforanother.net/

Making Sense of Artificial Intelligence 

Critical Media Project: https://criticalmediaproject.org/

All the best,

Biella (along with Chris, Paula, and Nathan)
