  • right about now::

    HAIP is a gathering of individuals and groups who, with their

    activities, treat technology, which is all around us and an inevitable

    part of our lives, critically. For the most part, they use free

    technology, be it a practical or an ideological choice. The use of free

    technology anticipates social relations, which some individuals see as

    cybercommunism, and others as just another kind of Utopia. But there

    exists an evolutionary current that deals with past acts of humankind,

    which lives from conscious and unconscious lapses and strives for

    equality generated by social globalization and not the globalization of

    capital. The harsh perfectionism of the overdeveloped Western world and

    the ideology of consumerism have been dominating end users, especially

    those that only care for the technology to work. For them, it's

    important to eat and not what to eat. If people manage to reflect from

    time to time upon what they eat; that is to reflect upon how they

    communicate, who tells them how to connect, interact, protest or

    participate, they will quickly find out that it is their time to act and

    they have to decide for or against it. They still do. More and more.

    Creative practices that stem from technology, infotainment,

    entertainment, politics and art, tell about the various choices and

    possibillities that an individual has. Technology does not make problems

    only for the experts to solve, and the social rights are not reserved

    only for the political elite. Everyone is included in the social evolution.

    HAIP presents individuals that change roles and are artists by need,

    computer scientists by education and detonators rather than passive

    observers by social activity.

    Workshops, discussions and presentations will be about:

    * production (what it means to produce, use, create and work with

    free software tools)

    * selection (contents, meaning, concepts and contexts that

    contribute to the final significance of some product or work)

    * authorial/authors' rights and copy rights in virtual worlds

    (presentation, use, application, possibilities and consequences of

    authorial rights . GPL, Creative Commons etc. in the context of audio

    and video production)

    * representation (the means of representation or presentation of

    various topics, what forms of presentations are most effective; the

    importance of internet and PCs; international integrations and

    presentations in an international environment, over the internet as well

    as live...)

    * distribution (how and where to distribute your works; what kinds

    of distribution are possible under GPL or Creative Commons authorial

    rights; what is direct and what peer2peer distribution; what it means to

    publish your work on the internet and how it is made as well as how to

    make it live streaming...)
