help me out
With three projectors and a mass of people having dinner, what would you show? Streaming video art? A slideshow from Flickr? A poem always moving? Something that works with little or no sound, something that can be a distraction not the main object, something that moves enough that it might tempt you to step up to the computer and play with it but that doesn’t need interaction to keep moving.
I’m in charge of the wallshows Wednesday night. I’d prefer something I can hook up and leave to itself for a while, so I can eat and laugh.

I vote Flickr.
A moblog where all the guests can post pictures from their camera phone during the event?
J. Nathan Matias
The Mirror Project?
John Cayley’s Overboard would be good as one.
Have you seen Fidget by Kenneth Goldsmith (he of UBUweb) and Clem Paulsen: http://www.chbooks.com/online/fidget/index.html
The Applet runs for 24 hours in real time, perfect for those long dinner parties.
You want to amuse your guests?
Why not choose a Multiplayer game. It can be quite amusing to view others play…
Or take an interesting webcam. In a cold scandinavian country maybae a frequently updated cam from a hot & steamy beach can be quite inspiring?
Enjoy your conference! The program looks great.
What a lot of interesting ideas! I think perhaps instead of choosing something that’s presented as art, I’ll set up the three projectors with various stuff – a webcam’s great, maybe we could have one to a person and one to a city, a Flickr feed would be good, perhaps a MUD or MOO, a and yeah, a graphical multiuser game would be brilliant. Are there any, uh, visually appealing ones that don’t demand too much set up in terms of buying accounts and installing software? We can use Windows or Mac.
