Join us for two days of speakers, panels and workshops designed to introduce the community to DIY networking. Learn how to create your own offline networks, portable web servers, mesh networks or internet gateways in hands on workshops. Attend panels where you can discuss your visions for how a localized network could support your school, your community, or your cause. Listen to speakers talk about the future of computer networks and why it’s important to understand how networks work in this age of hyper-connectivity.
The conference will be organized around the following questions and themes:
Invisible audiences drive the success and failures of mediated social life. Before we rush to further network our private and public spaces we should consider this radical cultural shift. Some lessons can be learned from a recent ambiguous website and an old ambiguous book.
On Friday, August 27 at 3:00pm in the RWE Tower Gallery I'll be presenting as part of V2's Test_Lab session, where this summer's resident artists will perform and demonstrate their work in a hands-on way.
