SkillShare

We give you the numbers; you make them speak to us.

Every year, Americans fill out income tax forms and make their payments to the IRS. It’s an important civic duty, but do we really know where our tax dollars go? Using data provided byWhatWePayFor.com, Eyebeam challenges you to create data visualizations that make it easier and more interesting for taxpayers to understand just how the government spends our money.

 

Designers, developers, journalists, artists: Get a head start on your entry for the Data Viz Challenge! Join Eyebeam to get seasoned advice in a skillshare led by George Michael Brower and Jono Brandel (designers, Google Creative Lab), Aaron Meyers (Eyebeam Fellow and interactive media designer), and Evan You (designer of Internet Censorship).

Join X-Lab Resident and Debian NYC member Hans-Christoph Steiner for Novice Night, a series of Debian-NYC meetings for everyone.

This event is for you if: you would like to install Debian, help with an installation, help with configuring or making Debian do what you need. If you want to hang out with Debianistas to pick up tips and tricks, come on by. We can also provide some help with the Ubuntu derivative of Debian.

I'm really excited about the internal SkillShares, for current artists, staff, and alumni, starting next week. The topics are full of practical/essential information for everybody working in house right now. On May 11, Michael Mandiberg is going to look at what constitutes a successful use of a Creative Commons licensed work, with a focus on non-textual and non-code uses of the license. He's going to discuss three recent CC licensed projects: the Bright Idea Shade (with Steve Lambert), Bright Bike, and Digital Foundations: An Intro to Media Design (with xtine burrough). Then on May 18, Michael Mandiberg and Steve Lambert will hold a two-part session, discussing best-practices for sharing, focusing on practical ways artists/technologists can most efficiently harness social networking and online networks to diffuse their work to new audiences. Michael will look at ways of sharing images, with a focus on Flickr.

 

Eyebeam will be participating in ElectroSmog, a new festival that revolves around the concept of Sustainable Immobility. The festival, which takes place simultaneously at many locations around the world, will introduce and explore the concept of sustainable immobility in both theory and practice, with discussions, workshops, and performances taking place at each of the festival partners' home bases.

Eyebeam will run two events on Saturday, March 20:
