Hey all, yeah, we want to do something focused on venture communism and
counterantidisintermediationism, conversations that substack, dominic,
feross and others have been casually involved with in the past.

We would host in our space[^1], and it would be a facilitated
discussion, with no audience, only participants, using our
"international" style of facilitation.

Probably about a dozen to so people, 4 to 6 hours. Whatever day is best
for the participants is good for us.
We like to be open, but would focus on making progress and forging
alliances in this session, so would prefer to work with people who are
already favorable to the work of Telekommunisten, venture communism,
etc, self-identify as left/socialists, are are at least potentially
interested in working in solidarity with Marxist mass movements in the
global south.

If there are people who are interested, but unsure about their feelings
about our political orientation, we could do a Commie Curious
session[^2] for a more a more general audience.

If there was also a SquatConf in parallel to DTN, Telekommunisten would
be happy to contribute to that with presentations and/or facilitated
discssions as well.

Not sure if I'll attend DTN, but really excited about having you all in
town, lets make the most of it!


[1] We've moved since last time, so not the same as the old space, a bit
[2] We have hosted Commie Curious sessions the last two years at CCC.
