It’s been an exciting few years for the Unlike Us initiative, with three conferences, a published reader, an iPad magazine and countless blog posts. Adopting a unique perspective that combines artistic, academic and activistic elements, both social media monopolies and their decentralized alternatives have been analysed in great detail. With Unlike Us #3 having drawn to a close, now is a good time to consider the future of the project. For this reason, the Institute of Network Cultures has put together ‘Unlike Us: Looking Ahead’, which addresses Unlike Us #4 and the ‘bigger picture’ along with key themes and workshop ideas. You can check it out for yourself here: UU#3 Looking Ahead
