Ok first, the audience was actually responding and laughing, but it sounds strange because the only mic is on the stage so it’s difficult to hear. But they were there…. Also, this is taken from a stream, so the quality is as good as it’s going to get – sorry about that.

Excerpted from the Liquid Democracies discussion at Transmediale 10 in Berlin.

Speaking at Dorkbot PDX, August 9th

Marisa Olson and I are speaking at Dorkbot PDX this Sunday, August 7th, 7PM. The annoucement says:

We are extremely honored to have two distinguished artists from New York visiting Portland and sharing their work with DorkbotPDX. Please help us welcome these amazing and inspiring dorks from across the way!

I’m flattered to be called distinguished… !

I’m very grateful to Amber Case for patching us into the PDX scene, and Thomas Lockney and Jason Plumb for setting up this opportunity to share with some PDX dorks.
