Hi there, I'd like to invite you all to an on-line (public) private view of
a blog site. Here's the blurb:
'information in-formation' 6-10pm 1/2/06
User driven networks have allowed the advancement of knowledge production.
Users establish their own networks, collaborations, goals and methods by
creating and sharing information, I feel it is important to recognise that
these kinds of activities generate knowledge and that this type of knowledge
creation is in turn a form of collective learning.
Here I would like to initiate a space for innovation that is spurred by an
open exchange of information. This space will act as a forum, a gallery, a
lecture theatre, a networking aid. It is set up so as to allow people to add
information or ideas anonymously if they so wish, (by using the public
username and password), but of course it does not have to be used in this
way. In giving people the choice to directly edit any content, I am wavering
my presumed mastery as creator over this blog site. Im opening up a space
which is traditionally a solipsistic one and inviting others to recombine
and edit my thoughts and opinions as well as adding their own and offering
those up to be edited in the same way.
I am organising an on-line private view of this blog site, which will take
place at the above address, between 6 and 10 pm on 1/2/06. This will be the
official opening of the site as well as an introduction to the working of
it. On this date (as well as any other), anybody is free to publish anything
they wish here. Whilst it is a private view, it is not fixed work on show;
the idea of this event is that what you come to see is entirely interactive,
changeable, open source. You are invited to bring along any thoughts,
drawings, stories, essays or comments you wish to post and together well
start a collaborative gallery of knowledge creation.
