Mindy Seu talked about pursuing independent projects, the internet’s other histories and futures, archives, and spreadsheets with Frontier.
“Spreadsheets are inherently pretty easy to use. The ethos of the digital spreadsheet, historically, was liberatory: it was programming for the non-programmer. But even if they’re easy to use, they’re quite linear,” Seu said. “The cyberfeminism archive became unwieldy because the things I gathered don’t fit neatly into clear taxonomies: people joined more than one group, group names changed over time—things like that.”
