SUNDAY, Sept 9

[ 09:30 - 10:15 ] Overview presentation of funding
institutions and alternatives

[ 10:15 - 14:30 ] Scales: Big institutions > > > newly
established spaces
Is big bad, and small beautiful?  An "institution,"
true to its etymological significance, is an act of
founding, which can also be an act of self-founding.
Are institutions necessarily bureaucratic bodies?
When does an institution become a bureaucracy-does it
have to do with the size of its organization, the
duration of its existence?

[ 17:00 - 21:00 ] Models: "Occupation," sponsorship, 
What are the relations between autonomous institutions
and funding sources, sponsorship, governmental
interests? Competing models: squats, government
sponsorship, external foundations, and
self-sustainable alternatives-membership, entrance
fees & going commercial?

[ 23:00 -  >    ] Video Screening + radio.active
program (egoboobits.net)

MONDAY, Sept 10


[ 09:30 - 14:30 ] Service > Content > Community
What service do servers provide--does the service
create a content, does content automatically create a
community? What is the content of listservs--the act
of communication itself?  How do alternative
broadcasting systems create new public spheres? How
"global" are virtual communities? Are they
self-sufficient without the periodic organization of

[ 17:00 - 21:00 ] Regional Boundaries, Minority
Programs, Mobile Projects
The re-emergence of boundaries. Do regional networks
transcend isolation or reaffirm it in a regional
context? Independent spaces founded as/with specific
programs for minorities... How do recent mobile
projects in which communities travel across
territories differ from the so-called disappearing
boundaries of net.space?

[ 09:30 - 14:00 ] Server Workshops
-DYI (do it yourself) web server
-Overview of Linux system, installing and running a

[ 17:00 - 21:00 ] Net Economies
Does net space represent a transformation of commodity
logic and its inherent separation between production,
distribution, and consumption? How does the influence
of sponsorship affect the mode of production of
digital media? What is the value of collaboration and
the possible convergences between art, activism,
education, technology?
Is net distribution a way of bypassing intermediaries?
How do venues and spaces influence the content and
presentation of net projects? Is the internet a
communication medium rather than a venue?
In what ways has the net transformed the relations of
ownership and copyright. Copyleft and open source as
new paradigms of gift economy?

[ 23:30 -  >   ] Performance: Ricardo Dominguez +
Pararadio program



[ 09:30 - 14:00 ] Server Workshops
-Dynamic backends overview
-Services: groupware, chats, mailing lists  finally,
virtual desktop!
-Directories, knowledge databases (DMOZ

[ 17:00 - 21:00 ] Database Ontology, Web Aesthetics

How do classical relations between form and function
apply to digital media? If digital technology moves in
one direction--"more"--is there an imperative toward
developing a "minimalist" media? Ethical dimension of 
form, responsibility to audiences, forms of
scalability and accessibility
Has the dominance of the database model produced a new
ontology, a paradigm shift replacing the old narrative
perceptual apparatus that was a legacy of film?
Convergences of film and database, models of digital
archives, database driven servers.
-Pixel Publishing-
How do web magazines reproduce or transcend the form
and uni-directionality of print media? What web
publishing models can be developed that are specific
to the (so-called) open, decentralized nature of
net.space? Hybrid models, text engines, extracting
content from newslogs and listservs.
