Dot Org Boom

Why are there so many good things happening and I am so busy? Finland. On a clear day I can see it across the water from not so far from where I live. It lies there upon the horizon as a blue line, like some emaciated snake lying upon the brackish waters of the Gulf of Bothnia. Now there is a festival/exhibition in Helsinki which seems to be worth walking there for.

Dot Org Boom is PixelACHE 2005 and will run from 14-17 April 2005 at Helsinki's Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art. I quote from the website:

The main theme for PixelACHE 2005 is Dot Org Boom. Dot Org Boom is the non-profit version of the Dot Com Boom (RIP). The essential ingredients of this rapidly growing phenomenon are open source community, open content initiatives, media activist networks and myriads of NGOs around the world. PixelACHE Festival will bring together a diverse group of artists, engineers, activists, architects and designers to discuss and develop the future of Dot Org Boom.

PixelACHE 2005 also features following program sections:

VJ Culture and Audiovisual Performances
Experimental Interaction and Electronics
Interactive & Participatory Cinema
particle/wave hybrid radio workshop

I wanna go!
