Public Space With A Roof Overtoom 301 Amsterdam Tram 1 from CS to Jan Pieter Heijestraat http://www.pswar.org
--> 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 http://www.think-tank.nl/arsc
--> 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 partners.
--> 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.
