o.blaat:
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
flag.

## you will be observed...

This roundtable idea was set into motion by Michael Liegl, a
sociologist from Ludwig-Maximilian Universität, Germany, who has been
studying the experimental music and VJ scene for quite some time now.
Michael will present slides and video footage from Share to get us
talking.

If you'd like to participate remotely, please contact
roundtable@share.dj 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/ .

network of almost 30 people and 10 huge italian communities and projects
collaborating to the magazine and the portal at large; some the best italian
journalists, curators, critics and professionists of the growing and
spreading new media culture in Italy. We would like to be the first
cultural-editorial activist network project in Italy, completely
indipendent, no dipending from any owner, writing and speaking and
discussing and reflecting freely about everything we consider important
today in the world of electronic culture and arts. From September you can
browse DIGICULT also in english at http://www.digicult.it/index_eng.htm
