Lars A Stålberg, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs at Ericsson, speaks
about ERICA.

Selection Criteria 

ERICA is designed to identify the most valuable, creative and significant
new Internet projects to aid the nonprofit community and bring these best
ideas from vision to reality. Ericsson will award five prizes of up to
$100,000 each in technical services to nonprofits that demonstrate how the
Internet can be used to meet a critical community need. 

Proposals will be screened by a professional philanthropic consulting
company, which will review and rate each submission based on the point value
system as outlined in the application. The highest scoring entries will be
sent to the ERICA Non-Profit Advisory Council, which is comprised of leaders
from the non-profit community who have actively advocated the adoption of
technology. Business and Internet pioneers from the ERICA judging panel will
then review the 20 finalists and select the five winners. 

Ericsson is seeking projects that incorporate the following: 

Project Purpose 
Each project will be judged on the overall purpose of the proposed project,
how it meets a demonstrated need and its potential impact on the community.
In defining the purpose of the project, applicants must 1) identify a
specific problem(s) or need(s) within the community; (2) propose a workable
and achievable means of addressing the community's problem(s) employing
Web-based communications; and (3) identify anticipated outcomes that are
both realistic and measurable. 

Each project will be rated on the degree to which the proposed project
demonstrates innovation and is exemplary. Judges will determine whether a
proposed project involves the development or demonstration of promising new
strategies and the potential replicability of the proposed project,
including its potential for implementation in a variety of new settings. 

Each project will be rated on its overall feasibility and its plan of
implementation. Applicants must address the qualifications, including
training and experience, of key project personnel, the adequacy of support
and other resources from the organization and the potential for continued
support and maintenance of the project. 

Community Involvement 
Each project will be rated on the overall level of community involvement in
its development and implementation. Judges will pay particular attention to
the strength and diversity of support for the project from the end users and
community partners.

Subject: BLAST THEORY at Performance Space
From: "TPS" <>

Performance Space InSight Program presents.....


Performance Space is delighted to present a forum for practitioners to meet
and talk with two of the artists from Blast Theory- a London based group who
make live arts events, installation and new media work. Their recent works
include '10 Backwards', 'Kidnap' and 'Desert Rain'.

Matt Adams and Ju Row Farr will use two recent pieces of work as examples of
the merging of real and virtual space.  In 'Kidnap' (1998) the group ran a
lottery in which the first two prizes was to be kidnapped and held at a
secret location for two days whilst under constant observation by a web cam.
'Desert Rain' (1999 in collaboration with the University of Nottingham's
Computer Research Group) is a game, an installation and a performance in
which six visitors at a time work together to find a target in a virtual
world.  The world itself is projected onto screens of water spray.  If
successful, the visitors penetrate the screen to travel through two further
spaces and meet their targets via a video interview.

You might want to know something about this issue. What comes out of
boredom? Let's be inspired instead of being bored by boredom. Escape the

You might want to know something about boredom in general.
No, you don't.

You might want to know something about the maker. Basicly Re-Magazine is
made by one person, namely Jop van Bennekom, designer and chief-editor of
Re-Magazine. In cooperation with a network of friends he investigates,
explores, researches and exposes a different theme each issue.

You might want to know something about the magazine in general.
Re-Magazine is neither a lifestyle, fashion, art, nor a design magazine.
In fact it's a magazine in between all magazines.

You might want to know something about the history of Re-Magazine.
Re-Magazine started in 1997 as 'Daily Life Magazine'. Remember the home
issue, the media issue and the sex issue. Now after one and a half year
is back again. Thicker (84 pages full color), better, three times a year and
time even with advertisements.

You might want to know something about the distribution.
Get your copy at a selected bookstore for only fl. 17,50 or $ 9.00.

Douglas Coupland: "One doesn't find magazines as Re- in dentist's offices.
Nor does one find them in trash bins; they're 'keepers' - they're the
National Geographics of

They're maps of some sort, I know they are - but to where?"

Call for potential presenters

E-culture fair

Amsterdam, RAI
12-13 November 2000

organised by the Virtual Platform

Why an E-culture fair?
The E-culture fair will be a showcase of work in progress in electronic
culture. Fifty stands will be filled by innovative projects that redefine
and challenge accepted applications of new media. This event, to be held in
Amsterdam, is organised by the Dutch Virtual Platform, a network of
cultural organisations working in the new media field: Montevideo, Society
for Old and New Media, V2-organisation, de Balie, STEIM, Netherlands Design
Institute, Doors of Perception, Exploding Cinema, Paradiso (see

What form will it take?
Fifty stands will be set up in five zones in the RAI building. As well as
stands, there will be space for special demonstrations, a few larger pieces
of work, and screenings. Guided tours are planned for invited guests from
various interest groups, and a programme of expert meetings will be
organised in an adjoining space. Evening events are also planned.

What kind of projects will be showcased?
The fair will present projects rather than organisations. We are looking
for new projects, preferably work-in-progress. The emphasis is on
innovation: research and development, new forms of software, creative
applications for specific target groups. Another key factor is co-operation
with project partners, either nationally or internationally, in particular
with other cultural disciplines and with other sectors - education, social
affairs, with commercial partners, with scientific institutions. One of the
principle aims of the fair is to enable and encourage co-operation.

Projects will be placed in one of the four different zones, according to
roughly these themes (these are working titles only):
*connecting communities
*touching/beyond the screen
*fun and gaming

Who will visit the fair?
Visitors will include new media researchers, developers, designers,
artists, students, policy makers and professionals from the world of
education, science, culture, economic development, journalists.
A general audience of interested individuals will join about 1,000
attendees of the Doors of Perception conference. We expect at least 5000
visitors over the two days.

When and where?
The fair opens on 12 November at 1pm. It takes place over two days, from
1pm to 6 pm. On 11 November the fair will be constructed, involving the
building of the stands and setting up of equipment. The fair will be
dismantled on 13 November at 6 pm. The fair's location is the RAI
international exhibition and congress centre, Europaplein, Amsterdam

Why come to the Netherlands in November?
Apart from the chance to present your project to a high-quality audience,
network with your peers, and benefit from media coverage, two key events
are taking place on or around the same time as the E-culture fair:

Doors of Perception, the renowned international conference. See This year, Doors of Perception 6 has the theme
'lightness'. 11-13 November, the RAI, Amsterdam.
Each stand at the fair will be given as part of the package, one free
ticket to Doors of Perception (street value: NLG 1000)!

DEAF, Dutch Electronic Arts Festival, Rotterdam, 14-26 November, theme:
'machine times'. See

What we offer
We will provide each project with a stand, similar to those found at any
trade fair, consisting of a space 3m x 3m with desk and chairs, light,
access to electricity and other connections where necessary. Depending on
the nature of the project, we will provide some stands with a computer
and/or monitor. We expect that many projects will bring their own laptop.
We also provide a standard information poster for each stand, for which the
content will be developed by the Virtual Platform and the project
presenters in co-operation.

We will cover the travel costs (economy class train, plane or car miles)
for up to two people from each project, depending on each individual
project, kind of travel required etc. We also provide accommodation for
three nights in the form of modest hotel room (with breakfast - single or
two people sharing twin room as required). We also offer lunch on 12 and 13
November, and a daily sum of 75 NLG to cover dinner and local transport.

Each stand will receive a free ticket to Doors of Perception, which takes
place in the same building in the morning (value NLG 1000).

A limited budget is available for the transportation of bulky equipment for
project presentations. This can be discussed on an individual basis.

While all possible security measures will be taken to protect your
valuables during the exhibition (including the hire of security guards),
the Virtual Platform does not accept responsibility for damage or theft.
You are advised to exercise special care, particularly during the
dismantling of the fair.

In order to draw a large audience, we'll give a lot of publicity to the
fair. Our website (under construction) will carry all the details,  posters
will be distributed, press coverage sought. A webcast of the fair is also

What you need to do now
To be considered for a stand, you should send the following information,
before 20 June:

1. What is the project? (max. 100 words)
2. Who is involved? (organisations, individuals)
3. What exactly would you show at the fair? (computer presentations, objects?)
4. What equipment would you need and would you bring it yourself?
5. Your URL
6. Contact person
7. Email address, postal address, telephone, fax.
Send us this information on the attached form or send an email to . We would be grateful if you could confirm as
early as possible whether you will be able to attend.

In November
All project presenters will be required to be in Amsterdam from 11-13
November. You will be required to set up and dismantle the content of your
stand in collaboration with the fair organisers. It is essential that at
least one person is present at the stand during the opening hours of the
fair, and that this person is qualified to explain the project to visitors.

Who selects the projects?
A commission of the Virtual Platform will select projects.

The secretariat of the Virtual Platform is responsible for the content and
the preparation of the fair. If you have any questions about participating,
