Pre-Order Collaborative Futures – March 4th release
On March 4th, we will be holding a book launch for the Collaborative Futures Book at Eyebeam. The digital version is available here, and if you are at Transmediale, you can pick up a copy, but it not, this will be your first chance to get your hands on a dead-tree version of the book. Books will be for sale for $15 at the event, but you can pre-order now for $12 and help make the print run possible.
About the book:
Over 5 days in mid January 2010 the Transmediale festival locked 6 writers and 1 programmer in a Berlin hotel room to collaboratively write a book about the future of free collaboration; the authors started with only the title, and ended the week with a book. Transmediale Artistic Director Stephen Kovats will be on hand to join Eyebeam Honorary Resident Mushon Zer-Aviv and myself to talk about the process of writing the book, and some of our discoveries in the collaborative process. Stephen Kovatz will also talk about the ‘Futurity Now’ concept of TM10 in general and particularly in the context of the Collaborative Futures book sprint.
This will be your first chance to get your hands on a dead-tree version of the book. Books will be for sale for $15 at the event, but you can pre-order now for $12 and help make the print run possible. Click here to pre-order!
The “Collaborative Futures” book sprint was facilitated by Adam Hyde (FlossManuals.net) and authored by Mike Linksvayer, Michael Mandiberg, Marta Peirano, Alan Toner, Mushon Zer-Aviv and several additional collaborators using the Booki software (booki.cc) by Aleksandar Erkalovic.
