8 hours and 59 minutes through horrible austrian mountains to be exact.
ugh. good books and magazines are essential.
i will read the newmedia reader on this trip. quite appropriate, no? the reader, published by MIT press, claims to trace the history of media art through a collection of texts from borges to mcluhan to donna harraway’s cyborg manifesto to tim berners-lee.

electrolobby – the work-in-progress lab thingy – will feature 2 very cool projects this year:
proce55ing.net: “a programming language, a graphical programming environment, an instructional user interface and, at the same time, a designer community.” an attempt to make programming accessible to users with even very little technical knowledge.
scene.org: “the scene is made up of 15,000 young software enthusiasts from all over the world who get together at huge creative workshops and competitions.” should be buzzing in the basement…
