This weekend was the 20th anniversary of the DECENTRALIZED NETWORKER CONGRESS and events happened globally — connected via Skype and Bambuser.  The USA bambuzer broadcast that we followed was via although we also Skyped Graciela Garcia Marx in Argentina  and enjoyed Skype broadcast TO Roanoke from London, Argentina, and Windsor Canada… set up via one laptop w/Skype and the other facing it to broadcast via Bambuser. This often translated into pixelated images that were at times too dark to view and also, the events in London were not set up well via two laptops… we mostly watched people in Roanoke watching the other laptop! Still, all in all, it was VITAL and LIVE — which was the point.
Below are four cinquains (Five lines via 2,4,6,8,2 syllables per line) written by Adamandia Kapsalis, Julián Matthews, and C Mehrl Bennett while Mark Perry’s performance was happening in Roanoke – RE:
There was an anonymous person in Roanoke who contributed to one or two of these as well:
I hear loud sounds
rutabaga gripping
banana singsong pop pop pop
blip fap
I see
got it. good. greaat.
for the krow dies bar bar
hupla hippee do ray bar bar
bar bar
painful soysauce
o hey now googli ga
sitting in a suit sitting it
whipping whopping
in the shop pasting tense
relaxing outside the shop sign
clap clap
Mostly people in Roanoke who were present at the DNC contributed to the following cinquains: Tomislav Butkovic, Reid Wood, Brian Kounihan, Mark Perry, Warren Fry, and Jim Leftwich.
Admandia Kapsalis and Julián Matthews also contributed a few lines early for a short time on via bambuser text box on the right of screen.
See my intro and reading of the ABOVE four cinqains via bambuser broadcast :
You can watch the collaboration process happening in Roanoke as people took turns at the keyboard.
CMB helped on second last one via Bambuser. The last one (before Olchar’s set of four) was written by Reed Altemus,
