VULGO is a F/LOSS toolkit & philosophy for publishing and sharing books and other long-form textual materials over the Web.
Vulgo promotes a more sustainable and critical way of sharing textual contents over the Web. It uses FLOSS, Free Licences and plain text formats. It ambitions to coordinate tools&methods to overcome the hegemony of Google Books-Amazon in book circulation, which often appear above the publisher itself in search engines.
Our workflow for online publishing is characterized by 2 main elements:
We've published our collection of short stories Internet Mon Amour (IMA), relying on the Vulgo publishing pipeline (2 versions, emacs' org-mode and markdown+pandoc).
IMA presents stories of ordinary digital technological misuses and possible ways out. It's being used in CIRCE's workshops.
