Drumbeat Berlin: meet-up for lovers of the open web

"Beer, conversation, and pinatas."

The open web is the most powerful communication tool in the history of humanity. It is participatory, transparent, decentralized and generative.

But we can't take the freedom of the web for granted.
Join us at Drumbeat Berlin, a local meet-up for anyone who wants to help keep the web open.

Drumbeat Berlin is part of a global network initiated by Mozilla. It connects people and projects to foster the open web. We invite you to grab a beer and join us for an evening to share ideas and get involved. We'll talk about technical and social challenges facing the open web, and we'll highlight local initiatives already doing their part.

Kicking off the conversation are:

Pippa Buchanan: P2PU School of Webcraft -- http://www.drumbeat.org/p2pu-webcraft

Gabriel Shalom: Junto and Open Video

Ela Kagel: Transmediale Open Web Award -- http://www.drumbeat.org/project/open-web-award-2011

This event builds on the Drumbeat workshop held in May: http://www.drumbeat.org/events/drumbeat-berlin

Tintenscanner Poolparty

Bei diesem Event könnt ihr mit mit dem Tintenscanner von eurem eignenen Körper ein digitales Modell erzeugen und euch anschließend selbst als Miniatur aus Holz oder Kunststoff mit nach Hause nehmen -  Oder einfach einen leckeren Drink am Tintenpool genießen!

Der Tintenscanner von Friedrich Kirschner besteht aus einem aufblasbaren Gummibassin, mit Tinte gefärbtem Wasser, sowie einer einfachen Holzkonstruktion. Während man ein erfrischendes Bad nimmt, sinkt man langsam tiefer in das  Wasser ein. Eine Kamera zeichnet den Vorgang auf und erzeugt aus den Bildern ein dreidimensionales Computermodell, das dann gedruckt oder gefräst werden kann.

Der Workshop bietet einen spaßigen Einblick in die Welt der digitalen Produktion und erfordert keinerlei Vorkenntnisse.

Bitte Badesachen nicht vergessen! Bei schlechtem Wetter findet die Veranstaltung drinnen statt.

Datum: Sonntag, 29. August 2010 Uhrzeit: Ab 16 Uhr Ort: Open Design City, Prinessinnenstr. 19-20 (U Moritzplatz) Kosten: (scan + miniatur):  20 Eur

OpenSimSim meets Open Design City

Join our Open Source Design camp (MINI-MAKERLAB) at Betahaus Berlin on Sunday 15.08.2010 from 3pm until 8pm

Please bring along a household article that you have at least 3months in your flat already but that you actually do not need anymore. We will use it in our Makerlab so please don´t expect that you will take it back home again. The household article can be anything soft, hard, big, shiny, tiny, round, eatable, playful, kitch, electronic - No restrictions apply.

OpenSimSim is a new open source design network that will develop Design with the help of the web2.0 community which can actively
participate in the design process through a commenting and sharing interface on the internet.
The first outcomes of the beta version will be exhibited at the  official program of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2010.

Open Design City
Open Design City is a space that encourages the sharing of tools, knowledge,
ideas and skills. It is a space to explore the principles of Open Design.

POD Design
During the Biennale an augmented reality
installation will allow the visitors to comment on the
first pod prototypes that developed during the beta phase.

A pod is an intelligent unit within a flat or house that contains
all infrastructure that supports the resident.
The infrastructure can include the kitchen, bathroom or any other
appliances needed such as internet interfaces or recycling units.

Open Source Design Camp
On Sunday we invite everyone who is interested in developing
the POD ideas together with Berlin based design studio anOtherArchitect
and the OpenDesignCity crew.

Come along and become an active member of the Open Source design
of the open-pod and be part of the official program of the
12th Architectural Biennale curated by Kazuyo Sejima.

Experience and be part of the experiment to implement the Open Source
idea in architectural design! The results will be displayed in Venice.

You will get the unique chance to play around with the tools and materials
developed and stored in the ODC workshop.

The camp is open to architects, designers, geeks, eco freaks, gardeners,
chefs, writers, chemists, thinkers, DIY freaks, water experts, tailors,
home owners, pet lovers, plumbers, film makers and everyone else.

We will film the event and the documentation will be screened
at the Biennale in Venice as well. So get out your Sunday dresses and join us.

If you can not join us this Sunday you still have the chance to join the Open Source Design process online at: http://opensimsim.net/
