"The Obama campaign shows that the power and influence of computer networks continues to grow, as a political and cultural force, while music and video downloading is transforming the arts and culture industry. Web 2.0 tools are evolving consciousness, creating new social and spiritual possibilities. Laura Dawn, the cultural director of MoveOn; Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky, musician, writer, and filmmaker; and Daniel Pinchbeck, author and editorial director of Reality Sandwich, will discuss the transfigured landscape of our new networked culture, its potentials and pitfalls. Can virtual tools rescue us from the political and ecological abyss of a post Peak Oil world?"
Moderated by Reality Sandwich's publisher Ken Jordan.
Followed by Akim Funk Buddha's high energy, beat-boxing and world-traipsing performance art, Zack Hagan's "The Muramaba Sessions," Zemi17, Parashakti and more.
Limited Space. Advance tickets highly encouraged!
