Dear artists, designers, engineers, technicians and technologists,
You are invited, in person or via audio/video/text conference, to a
roundtable discussion of artistic and technological communities hosted
by the Integrated Digital Media Institute of Polytechnic University.
## Topics will include:
- Interactivity in digital media art
- Communities of digital media artists
- Tool development in artistic and technological communities
As it's an example familiar to many, we will use the Share community
(http://share.dj) as a starting point for discussion, which should
last about 3 hours. Bring energy bars/drinks if you fear you might
## you will be observed…
This roundtable idea was set into motion by Michael Liegl, a
sociologist from Ludwig-Maximilian Universitat, Germany, who has been
studying new/experimental audio and visual communities for quite some time now.
Michael will present slides and video footage from Share to get us
If you'd like to participate remotely, please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org to work out the technical details. For more on
the topics we will discuss (and to add your own suggestions to the
mix), consult the wiki at http://share.dj/wikis/roundtable/ .
September 17th, 2 pm
at the IDMI Lab
6 Metro Tech Center
(What is SHARE?)
SHARE is an organization dedicated to fostering open and spontaneous
collaborations between audio and video artists, and providing the
necessary infrastructure to support this community. SHARE accomplishes
this through a weekly free event, special large-scale events held in
various cities, and a strong Internet presence. SHARE operates on an
open and free philosophy, making our events as broadly accessible as
possible and releasing software and media under open licensing schemes.

AND! Now also new Share in Montreal, run by great people!
