The flat hierarchies of talk shows are about as subversive as NYC
Democrats smoking dope. But count us out! We won't produce a talk
show. Nope. We produce a TAUGSHOW! Which means: we dig it. Our guests
are geeks, heretics, and other coevals. A joyful bucket full of good
clean fanaticism, crisis, language, culture, self-content, identity,
utopia, mania and despair, condensed into the well known cultural
technique of a prime time TV show.

Zealand. Currently he is one of the driving forces of the RepRap

Adia Martin: Fashion, Technology and Femal Sovereignty:
Adia Martin is a New York ex-patriate currently residing between
Vienna and London. Having spent the past ten years of her life
working in various different areas of the fashion industry, her
primary concentration has always found its way back towards a
historical foundation. Adia looks at how the change in the roles of
women in society directly influenced fashion styles, tastes, and
necessities. Because the 20th Century created some of the most rapid
and significant evolutions in recorded history, it becomes easier to
recognize how quickly what we wear is directly correlated to what we do.
Michael Bauer: 310 Chinese LED Throwies: Instantaneous beauty and
