Mediamatic.net goes online
In January 1999, the website Mediamatic.net online. From then Mediamatic activities, articles, reviews and theoretical considerations combined into an interactive online magazine. The website is also a (photo-)archive and new media network. Mediamatic.net works with Anymeta, a system based on meaningful relationships between people, events, places, objects etc. This is the first project of Mediamatic Lab, the sister organization Mediamatic Foundation.
In 1999 Mediamatic continues organising salons on Sunday afternoon in Society BABY. Several speakers come along from the worlds of television, new media, film, music, performance.

Workshop Behaviour Designs
Following the series of workshops "Author in New Media", Mediamatic organises in '99 / '00 a series of workshops about "Designing behaviour". The new media include a fundamental aspect to the old: they exhibit behaviours. The design of this behaviour is the main topic of the three workshops. The workshop titles include Rhythm & Timing, The Playfield and Interactive Storytellers.
