This year has seen us also fervently engaged in activities in south-east Asia, starting in Singapore with the [mini-summit on New Media Art Policy & Practice] hosted by [ASEF], followed by our contribution to [ISEA2008] about "nomadic operating system" design and participation to the [Luminous Green Workshop].
We conducted a research and provided support for a range of cultural initiatives in Indonesia, among them the [Transmission Asian-Pacific] video-activist camp organised by [Ruangrupa] and [EngageMedia] in Sukabumi. Workshops on free software and new media were held for the [Cellsbutton02] media art festival organised by the [House of Natural Fiber] in various schools in Yogyakarta, as well for the [YPKP] Foundation in Jakarta.
The [Bricolabs] project was started as a development framework for [Generic Infrastructures], in collaboration with a wide network of media labs across the world, in the context of countries as Brasil, Indonesia and of course the Netherlands. Core organisations involved are [Metareciclagem], [dyne.org], [goto10] and [HiveNetworks]. During the year workshops were held in festivals [Pixelache / Democracy : Do It Yourself] (Paris, Main D'Oevres) and [Enter_ Unknown Territories] (Cambridge, Downing College). Bricolabs was selected as a breakthrough project by the [Holland Open Software Conference].
As a research publication the [Wide Area Network Streaming] documentation has been written, completed with encoding benchmarks and published in the "Competence Network for Media Design" book ([ISBN 3-9502013-2-7]) as a collaboration with the Austrian FHplus program run by Universities of Applied Sciences Vorarlberg/St.Poelten/Salzburg.
