The Catalog of Formats for Digital Discomforts was compiled by researcher and cultural mediator Jara Rocha, for the workshop series on Obfuscation as an online gathering. It provides insights into different vectors of thinking that influence the organisation of online events. During the pandemic, big tech corporations were quickly monopolising the formats available and creating an online-gathering-monoculture. This evolution also made way for counter-forces to mobilise and provide alternative solutions to these forms. The Catalog was created to document the practices of these counter-forces.
