--> ARSC
We will communicate primarily through the program ARSC,
A Really Simple Chat. Starting from short prepared
statements we will discuss different questions. ARSC can
also be used for the participating public to pose
questions. ARSC is very simple and requires no installation.
It can be tested at

--> Skype
We will talk in parallel to the remote participants
through skype. Since it allows only a limited number of
participants to join in, we will also post regular
short written summaries. Record Conversations will be
summarized throughout the sessions on the platform
and updated during the conversations.

--> Platform
The platform will be used to summarize discussion rounds
as well as to create / view the profiles of discussion

--> Space
The discussion partners present in the space will also be
asked to communicate predominantly through ARSC, skype
and the platform, so that their contributions are visible
to remote partners.

--> Newsletters
Each day excerpts of the previous day's conversation are
edited and sent out as newsletters.

--> Publication
The generated materials (records, chat-histories,
newsletters) will be compiled into a publication by
March 2006 using a printing on demand format.
