A need to think politically about technology and the need to think of Software Libre as a tool for liberation and organization.

|Feelings|| Lots of new & reconnected feelings around the meeting of different values in open space.
Shared spaces create a meeting of minds, differing opinions about political meaning of technology.
Conflicted feelings around inclusiveness of cis men in feminist spaces / non-inclusiveness of cis-men's opinions and voices.
|Feedbacks|| Very specific feedback and needs for future meetings:
- Need for tools to perform secure erase of data.
- Need to construct open access libraries outside of existing structures which have limited access for many communities, especially those outside traditional institutional spaces.
- The need to use search engines which do not 'profile' users or perform censorship in order to reach wider info. Different experiences of information available when using TOR.
-The interest on knowing how to create different identities online (the way on how to separate them and not giving up our real identity)
-Interest on feminist libraries online with bibliography on the main subjects of interests.
-Getting to know alternatives of Free Software of main applicatives used on the computer
- What happens in open spaces vs closed spaces? Do women and LGTBQIA folk need their own spaces and their own approaches to technology and learning?
|Start|| Creating spaces to generate access and empowerment around technology.
Motivating from joy not fear. Appropiate new knowledge and make it ours.
|Stop||Fearing what we do not know :)|
|Keep||Being positive about each other's knowledge. Legitimising our existing "abilities". Growing together. Creating positive dialogue and learning new tools and foundations for knowledge.|
