Other practicalities that are taking more shape now is the coordinating of the volunteers. I have a nice group of people, but more helping hands are very welcome. The schedule set-up will be made before the end of the month. People can sign up for shifts and we encourage them to also sign-up for the post-production, a very important part of the camp. If you are interested please mail me: deborah [at] mediamatic.net
The communication with the hackers team is a continuos process as well. People have a lot of questions and need a lot of information before the party can start. The MIT people are all coming from Boston and New York but some are in Austria for Ars Electronica. There will be a lot of people coming from all over the world. We are looking forward a lot!
Meanwhile my colleague Machiel is ordering all the technical and electronic equipment. A list with anything a hacker would need is made and will be conversed into a tangible geeky playground from heaven!
