pad-to-print workflow to make the post-script of the 3rd Obfuscation Workshop

About this Post-Script

This publication was made using a custom tool that allows for collaborative design, based on Flask, Pandoc, Etherpad, Etherdump and Weasyprint. The publication was written on one shared Etherpad and turned into a PDF using web-to-print techniques. This way of working allows for the writing, editing, copy-editing and design could happen within the same space.

Throughout the publication 9 text pattern separators appear that were generated partially in the last Study Group session by Cristina Cochior, Ero Balsa, Manetta Berends, and Pieter Delobelle. We performed a form of "slow computing" on the transcripts and chats from the sessions by looking for markers which traverse the multiple topics and registers that had been discussed during the Obfuscation Workshop. The last three separators come from the editing work of Amy Pickles who shared through email some of the words that reappeared often but were spelled differently each time.
