The internet has become an increasingly disputed space. Governments want to regulate it and internet providers want to restrict access to parts of it. To help us remember that the internet can exist without governments, we have created unCloud. unCloud is an application that enables anyone with a laptop to create an open wireless network and distribute their own information. In case you are in Belgium, the project is presented at the artefact festival in Leuven. Also feel free to create clouds in your own cities. unCloud is a co-commision by stuk.be and arnolfini.org.
Museum Analytics is an online platform for sharing and discussing information about museums and their audiences. For each museum there is a daily updated report with information about online and offline audiences. These reports are an essential tool for communication departments to evaluate and understand their progress. Rui will be presenting Museum Analytics at the conference Museums and the web, San Diego (USA) in March and at the conference Museum Next, Barcelona (Spain) in April.
Feel free to contact Rui if you are in the Netherlands and need some guidance. In case you know about opportunities to show software based art projects please let him know at email@example.com
