HALLIBURTON SOLVES GLOBAL WARMING SurvivaBalls save managers from abrupt climate change

An advanced new technology will keep corporate managers safe even when climate change makes life as we know it impossible.

"The SurvivaBall is designed to protect the corporate manager no matter what Mother Nature throws his or her way," said Fred Wolf, a Halliburton representative who spoke today at the Catastrophic Loss conference held at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Amelia Island, Florida. "This technology is the only rational response to abrupt climate change," he said to an attentive and appreciative audience.

Max Payne Cheats Only: Demo and Q&A
Wednesday, May 10, 2006
6:30 pm
Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI)
535 West 22nd Street, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10011

EAI and Rhizome present renowned digital artists jodi.org in a rare public demonstration of their latest video game modifications, Max Payne Cheats Only. The work is a series of "cheats": alterations to the behavior of a video game that are often built in by the original programmers to help players who have reached an impasse. jodi.org has compiled cheats from the ultra-violent New York vigilante game, Max Payne. Their live demonstration will be followed by an in-depth discussion and question and answer session hosted by media art curator Caitlin Jones.

Digit Media Festival call

categories:

I've been involved with this for a couple of years. It started out as a a film festival but I've been pushing to turn it into a new media festival. For the film festival you have to send in your video with a 25 dollar fee. There's also a call for new media proposals which is free. The cool events will be at the Roebling Bridge for sound art and Bethel Woods Art Center (the old woodstock hippie site). we're calling this Podstock.

http://www.thefourthscreen.com/

"We are at the moment when everybody, from the media moguls to Vietnamese peasants - artists, hackers, activists, businesses and governments are trying to grasp the impact, the power, of this new phenomenon.... trying to claim a part of it. There is still a lot of space for great ideas, to fulfill dreams and real needs. I hope the Festival will serve as a catalyst and influence this process... "

Net Community Hacks Cultural Funding System

Vienna, 2 May 2006

“Our much-discussed, game-theory-oriented approach to cultural funding represents a clear rejection of all the Austrian cultural industry’s hegemonic tendencies,” states MANA coordinator Stefan Lutschinger: “This hack of the outmoded jury and committee system opposes every rationalistic funding cut with pure difference, contingency coping and the fruitful development of paradox.”
