I like seeing the works these artists and writers have created. I gather nuggets of information from discussions and conversations.
- There’s a phone company in Britain that will let you leave text messages for your friends that they’ll only receive if they are at a particular location. A fortnight after I was at a cafe my sister approaches it and her phone beeps with a message I left: “The cheese cake here is almost as good as Donna’s!”
- The War Room by Simon Mills and Alan Sondheim collects stories and disintergrates them as war disrupts and destroys lives.
- Every speaker here relates their first encounter with the internet and describes how fundamentally it has changed their lives and their art. I will either collect these stories and create an art project with them or take an oath never again to relate my own stories of discovering technology.
