Neostalgic Computing is a 6-week course I'm developing on Through a speculative design process, students will reflect on their relationships with computing technologies and reimagine them from a hyper-personal, retrospective, and healing lens.

Many of us are nostalgic about the technology of our pasts, but what happens when we move from nostalgia—longing for what was—to neostalgia—longing for what could have been?

Expanding upon the themes I explored in Jackie's OS, this course is an experiment in fostering alternate visions of computing culture through self-reflection and speculative play.

The first cohort begins February 2021. Stay tuned to learn more!
