"TAKE THE CAPITAL! TAKE YOUR CAPITALS!"

A CALL FOR GLOBAL DAYS OF ACTION AGAINST THE G8

JUNE 26-27, 2002

This coming June 26-27, the executive board of global capitalism is
retreating to the foothills of Alberta, Canada. Jean Chretien, George W.
Bush, Tony Blair and the other so-called leaders of the industrialized
world continue planning for war at home and abroad, surrounded by
pristine wilderness, putting greens, and thousands of police and
soldiers.

The self-serving "war on terrorism", orchestrated by the leaders of the
G8, continues to militarize and brutalize the world, while cynically
making appeals to civilization and freedom. From Afghanistan to
Colombia, from the Philippines to Somalia, Western powers continue to
exercise their self-proclaimed right to dominate and determine the
destiny of the global South at an ever more accelerated pace.

NL-Design and Paradiso present

6TH INTERNATIONAL BROWSERDAY

WIRELESS – CELLSPACE – RICH AIR

PARADISO – AMSTERDAM - friday May 17 - 2002

Start at 2 PM

Browserday, the international competition for new media designers, is
coming back to Amsterdam. After Browserdays in New York and Berlin, the next
event will take place at Paradiso on 17 May 2002. In 1998, the first
Browserday was staged in the midst of the so-called 'Browserwar' between
Netscape and Microsoft. Ever since the question who owns infrastructure and
thus determines the ways in which billions of people communicate has become
increasingly urgent. The techno-economic battleground has shifted from the
Internet to mobile networks but the issues are still the same: who sets the
standards and owns them? What degree of freedom does the user have and what
is the role of designers in this fast changing world of new media? Almost 35
young designers will present their alternative proposals that leave the
existing software and interface culture far behind.

Wireless

The networks have liberated themselves from their cables. Electroclouds blow
through the streets. The heavy desktop computers of yesteryear have shrunk
and accompany us everywhere and nowhere. The unbearable lightness of the
media makes us feel uneasy about the almost perfect accessability of the
world. The invisible abundance of signs takes users into a technological
unconscious. For the moment all problems seem to be solved. But who are the
ones that invite us to this technological wonderland? Are wireless networks
part of society or are we mere paying guests of this cell space; clients
granted access only after having paid? Does wireless mean powerless? Can we
act against wireless devices being tapped? Are there public spaces on the
network that aren't being run by the big telecoms? What do the tiny screens
look like that offer more facilities than sending text messages or photos?
