New Series in New York on New Media

Don't ever say Net Art News doesn't give you advance warning. To enter in your Palm Pilot: a new series of talks, performances, media, and workshops on pressing issues in new media today...(as well as food and drinks) to be kicked off at Name.Space Lab in New York (11 E. 4th Street), hosted by curator Cristine Wang. The first shindig takes place on February 2 from 5pm - 2am. A panel entitled "Art Activism + Technology in the Age of Corporate Globalism" is the inaugural event, featuring some big-time participants, including John Perry Barlow (in the flesh), co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and (via remote) Eduardo Kac, genetic artist (whose work is pictured).
