Program 2012

Friday 25.05.

09:30 – 11:00

We provide a nice breakfast!


11:00 – 11:45

Everyday experiences of networked society oscillate between processes of intensified control (Facebook, data retention, profiling) and new niches of autonomy (Wikileaks, Anonymous, commons-based peer production). Where does this contradictoriness of the networks come from? What can we do to expand the niches of autonomy without facilitating the processes of control?

Chair: Christoph Nebel


12:00 – 17:00

From frantic shopping malls to coffe shops, an internet cafe or the railway station, while walking and talking about public domains we'll be installing 'A Public Domain' in existing wifi networks in semi-public spaces around the city of Linz.


12:00 – 14:00

Git is the most widely used free software distributed version control system. The workshop introduces different use cases for distributed version control systems in general, and shows example workflows to encounter these use cases. The major part of the workshop covers hands-on experience, git repositories are created, modified, pushed, pulled and branched. Finally some platforms for publishing git repositories are addressed.


12:00 – 17:30

MeeBlip is a unique, fully open-source hardware synth with a
personality all its own, designed for everyone from first-time
hardware synth owners to people who want to get more advanced and
learn about modification. In this workshop, we'll assemble and start
using the MeeBlip micro.

The micro is a compact, affordable version of the board. It has no
knobs or switches, but it can be used with a computer for sequencing.
It's also small enough that it can be built into your own projects.
Unlike general-purpose hardware prototyping boards, though, you get


12:30 – 17:00

The Theremidi Orchestra will perform a workshop on a couple of small electronics noise gadgets for the use in mobile public action on the streets of Linz following the workshop.

Tutors: Borut Savski (Trivia & Theremidi Orchestra), Luka Frelih ( Ljudmila
& Theremidi Orchestra) and Theremidi Orchestra.

DIY theremin gadgets:
- TouchTone is a small synthesizer gadget to be played directly with
fingers on the electronics board. The boards design and functionality was adapted a bit by the crew.

- MicroNoise is another synthesizer gadget with photosensitive controls

The first part will be a really short introduction in what forced us to start the project and why we find it necessary to measure these environmental data, why we considered it as important to have not only measurement at one place but a hopefully increasing number of measurement nodes and finally why we want to combine it with yet existing concepts of crowd sourcing and crowd data.


14:00 – 17:00

The artistic practice of Heath Bunting tests social and psychological boundaries through outdoor pursuits such as climbing, skate boarding, tree planting and survivalism, as well exploring issues of genetics and biodiversity.

The OggStreamer is an audiostreaming device tailored to the specific needs of free radiostations, it is using the royalty-free ogg/vorbis audiocodec and supports the popular IceCast2 audiostreaming server. The whole design, including electronics, mechanical design and software, is released under OpenHardware and OpenSources licenses. This enables the easy integration of specific features and adaption of the design for other purposes.
