|What is the (deeper) message the acronym tries to convey||Some well-placed resistence can make the world more beautiful place.
OHM is the SI unit for resistence, and symbolizes our healthy resistence: against corporations gaining too much power, against governments failing to protect our (digital) civil rights, against trends in society and technology that threaten to make our world a boring place. Resistence is an essential element to make the world work: after all, no electrical circuit would function without a healthy dose of resistence.
|What concepts or ideas bind these elements (name, acronym, mood board)|
While I like the tradition of choosing a new name/acronym for each edition, the reality is that this is going to get more difficult each year - in other words, this tradition does not scale.
I still (reluctantly) voted for choosing a new name, because I think SHA/'Tsja' is a little 'Meh' ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
OHM, however, seems like a worthy banner to organize under for many editions to come.
