Critical Engineer and Environmental Activist Julian Oliver Moves Servers Like Other People Move Houses

“Servers are places, vessels, townships. This feeling of leaving an old home is profound.”
– Media artist and critical engineer Julian Oliver, after leaving a server he deployed for Extinction Rebellion “2 years and 364 days” ago. “After migrating the last of its many open source platforms to a new dedicated server, one far more capable, I’m left with a ghost town,” Oliver writes on Twitter. “Attacked day and night, I watched a global environmental movement bloom on it to 10s of 1000s of accounts, a thriving hub of action, community, and ideas.”
