Public Media Systems Workshop, Wednesdays 7-9pm in November, Cambrij

An informal workshop and working group around media systems.
What will happen?
We will discuss media systems. Things like television, internet, magazines, blogs, etc. We will view them with several lens including consumption/production, parallel/serial, horizontal/vertical, local/global, centralized/distributed, community/personal. We will then discuss small actions and cover how any new or old computer can become a local information server, a shared public appliance. Using free software, we will go over several ways you can accomplish this. You can do some physical building of a structures to house your device and we can talk about local venues that might house your unit as well. From cafes, music venues, to occupy boston.

Things you can learn to make if you want:
A videobooth, a public timelapse server, command line video remixing, computer timelapse self surveillance, youtube upload scripts, a public text box, and lots of good low level stuff about shell scripting and installing linux, systems thinking, etc.

What you should bring:
Your current computer or an old computer. Any old pc(win2k+) or mac (osx+) can probably be turned into a public information appliance. So bring one of those if you have it.
If you have an old webcam, bring that. If you have an old point and shoot camera from this list, please bring that:
