The main theme of PixelACHE 2005 is Dot Org Boom!

Dot Org Boom is the non-profit version of the Dot Com Boom (RIP).
The essential ingredients of this rapidly growing phenomenon are
open source community, open content initiatives, media activist
networks and myriads of NGOs around the world. PixelACHE
will bring together a diverse group of artists, engineers, activists,
architects and designers to explore the Dot Org Boom.

PixelACHE also features following program sections:

* VJ Culture
* Experimental Interaction and Electronics
* Interactive & Participatory Cinema
* particle/wave hybrid radio workshop.

Preliminary program information now available at www.pixelache.ac!
