Do you love to hate pop culture? See an ad, music video or viral video and think it would be so much better with one simple subversive tweak? This day-long workshop will cover the basics of mash up-video making and pop culture hacking. Participants will debate what makes a good mash up, make their own and upload the results to the web. And a course in mashing up media would be irresponsible if it didn't include a lesson on the ins-and-outs of fair use and copyright as it applies to creative works on YouTube! Come hack pop culture with us!

Plastic P2P Gift Credit Card

This project proposes an alternative financial model based on Peer-to-Peer architecture for a more equal sharing of wealth in society. It offers an innovative participative system using counterfeited virtual money. By issuing a visionary counterfeited type of VISA credit card, the project introduces the Gift Finance system based on People-to-People free credit shared across digital networks. The Gift Finance is a democratic creation of money directly regulated by ordinary people in order to redistribute wealth in society. The website P2PGiftCredit.com allows people to generate unique virtual card numbers to send to others via digital devices and platforms.

I am feeling a great amount of social responsibility while doing simple tasks like buying urls and testing regulators. Think it's time for a walk by the river.
