Hans-Christoph Steiner spends his time making private communications software usable by everyone, designing interactive software with a focus on human perceptual capabilities, building networks with free software, and composing music with computers. With an emphasis on collaboration, he has worked in many forms, including free software for mobile and embedded devices, responsive sound environments, free wireless networks that help build community, musical robots that listen, programming environments allow people to play with math, and a jet-powered fish that you can ride. To further his research, he teaches and works at various media art centers and organizes open, collaborative hacklabs and barcamp conferences. He is currently building encrypted, anonymous communications devices as part of the Guardian Project as well as teaching courses in interaction design and media programming NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program and workshops around the world.

On Thursday, May 7th 2009, 15 Loughlin students in Brooklyn had a video-conference call via Skype with students from St. Francis Assisi Academy in Liverpool, England. The purpose of the call was to share thoughts about global warming. St. Francis is also a Lasallian school and the conversation was part of a community project they did called Climate for Change.

Continuing our collaboration with the Foundation for Art & Creative Technology (FACT) on their Climate for Change project a transatlantic debate will take place. The theme, "Is the world ready for change".

Divided by the Atlantic, Liverpool and New York each share a unique cultural heritage but in our global economy each face similar challenges.  Bringing these two cities together virtually, young people will host a debate to discuss whether the world is ready for change.  The event will be recorded but if you are in Liverpool stop by FACT's gallery 1 to see it live.

Eyebeam wishes to thank Emilia Wiles Director, Student Success Center
