Upcoming workshop: RFID and The Internet of Things
11, 12, 13 September 2006
 {AT}  Mediamatic Amsterdam

After a succesfull CrashCourse in May, Mediamatic now presents a =20
second workshop on RFID and The Internet of Things.



RFID allows for the unique identification of objects, and any kind of
=20=

online data can be linked to these unique ID's. If RFID becomes an =20
open web-based platform, and users can tag, share, and contribute =20
content to the digital existence of their own places and objects, we =20
can truly speak of an Internet of Things. This opens perpectives for =20
new sustainability scenario's, for new relations between people and =20
the stuff they have,  and for other locative applications.


The participants of this workshop will develop critical, utopian or =20
nightmarish concepts for an Internet of Things in a hands-on way. =20
Ideas can range from scripts for small new rituals to outlines of =20
societal changes of epic scale. Prototypes can be tested with the =20
workshop tools The Symbolic Table or the Nokia3220 phone with RFID =20
reader.

The workshop has room for 16 designers, artists, thinkers and makers.

Participation fee is =80350 per person, ex BTW. Lunches, technical =20
equipment and assistance are included. If you want to participate in =20
