I’m at a panel about an interesting group — Share Global is a a network of groups with an open source/fluxus ethic to new media performance, who get together on a weekly basis and have audio and video mixing jam sessions, along with featured sets. Share started in New York, and has modes in Montreal, Weisbaden, San Diego, Los Angeles, Melbourne, St. Petersburg, and Geneva. Anyone who wants to can participate. The Share groups build their own infrastructure, mixing boxes, etc. and collaborate in these face to face meetings and also network with other nodes on the network. Pretty cool — if you live in one of the node cities, you might drop in and plugin your laptop if you choose.
