------------------------------
Mobile technologies like cellphones, PDAs and wi-fi are transforming how we play games. Games are no longer tied to the computer, leaving us free to roam and play with others in public. This has led to an explosion of interest in Big Games, multiplayer games for the real world. This September New York will become the capital of this movement as the Come Out & Play Festival turns New York City streets into a playground.

Come Out & Play is the first festival dedicated to big games, featuring roughly 25 official game across New York from September 22-24, 2006.

When
------------------------------
The festival will run from September 22-24, 2006. The festival includes work from featured artists area/code; Jane McGonigal and Ian Bogost; and Ville Tuulos and Jürgen Scheible from Nokia. Also check out games by SF Zero, the Go Game and many more. Stop by the opening night on Friday and check out everything from cellphone-enabled strategy games on the street, gigantic projected games, races across the city, games of benevolent assassination to scavenger hunts and more. Games will occur throughout the day in locations around the city. See the schedule of games for more details about events.

http://www.comeoutandplay.org/schedule/

Where
--------------------
While games will run in locations around the city, the festival headquarters will be hosted by the Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, located at Eyebeam at 540 W. 21st Street, New York, NY. Stop by the headquarters during the festival for information and to see game updates.

THE TANK FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION CAMPAIGN


this a FWD from my email today...

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
http://www.thetanknyc.org/giving.html

as most of you know, the tank is a nonprofit performing arts space in lower manhattan. we believe in maintaining a space for artists in manhattan where they can perform and explore without feeling the financial pressures that manhattan increasingly brings.
We have been in our new home in Tribeca with Collective:Unconscious for almost a year now (!) and it is so nice to not be writing you all on a weekly basis telling you we are losing our home, like we had to do for the first few years of existence.
However, we are still struggling to get by in the big city. But we dont plan on staying that way! oh no.

To that end, we are proud to be launching our Freedom of Expression Campaign. The goal is to raise $100,000 over the next few months to help us secure our somewhat tenuous foothold on the big apple, increase and stabilize our administrative staff, and continue bringing you fantastic, affordable programming for the years to come.

SO HERES HOW IT WORKS
we have secured a few amazing patrons who are collectively willing to donate $65,000 IF (and yes, this here is THE RUB) IF we are able to get 1,000 additional individual donations. Thats right, if 1,000 of our friends, artists, and loved ones donate even $12 to the tank this year, then these donors will unlock the $65,000 they have pledged and we will reach our goal. they want to see that we are loved. can you show them we are loved? yes, you can!
PRETTY NEAT, YES? YES!

But 1000 people is a lot. ive only got like 14 myspace friends and that includes Tom, so thats just not gonna cut it.

so weve got a website. you can go there now and donate any amount of money, become a tank member, get some free stuff in exchange, and generally know youve done your part in securing the future of a place you care about.

YOU CAN EVEN SETUP A MONTHLY DONATION OF $1 ON YOUR CREDIT CARD.
WOULD YOU EVEN NOTICE AN EXTRA $1 ON YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENT EACH MONTH? NO, YOU WOULD PROBABLY NOT!

READY? Just do it right now while you're thinking about it. Think how good it will feel!! IT WILL FEEL GREAT!

http://www.thetanknyc.org/giving.html

Thanks folks. and if the tank is a place you care about or has been good to you, please consider spreading the word and letting people know...stick it on your blog or your myspace page or whatever. Thanks Thanks Thanks!

Re: Re: thoughts on Appropriation versus Sampling


joy,
yes, i agree...
I really don't have a simple thought that doesn't involve appropriation or sampling on some level. your painting and the photograph involve both but are different resolutions. Refusing that doesn't have to be a generational thing, as in when you were born or what sort of music you have been exposed to. Being able to accept it may be a bent of mind that is reinforced from being creative with a computer though, i hope so, but unfortunately the person suing you hasn't been bitten by that yet.
