Quickly, here are the slides from my two different presentations. I had about 10 minutes on the panel to present the entire mouthfull below in hopes to scale up discussion:
The VT Art Salon went quite well with several local artists coming out and presenting under the umbrella of Media Exchange 2 (like early Media Exchange). I talked about how no art production is simply an author sitting in a room drawing circles all day without input from the world (figuratively) and then proceeded to present Overlap.org, Fabricatorz, and the soon-to-re-released, Scalejournal.org.
Thanks to Christopher Adams and Sophie for setting up the VT Art Salon and to Tyng-Ruey Chuang for setting up the ACIA Commons conference and getting me here
