_RICHAIR wireless workshop_
time: 2pm Monday 10th May, 2004
venue: CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow
entrance: FREE (places limited)

In conjunction with RICHAIR2030's performance at MACHINISTA in Glasgow, 
TAKE2030  will hold a freenetwork-DIY antenna workshop at Center for 
Contemporary Arts (CCA) on Monday, May 10, 2pm-5pm.

RICHAIR2030 calls for public participation in freenetwork movement -  
its ideas of open distributed wireless network and its DIY and open 
source application in hardware and software construct. Recalling early 
days of freenetworkers' handmade antenna building session, we will take 
the opportunity of the workshop get together to review the current 
state of freenetwork movement. In this time of Telecom's expansion of 
city hotspots and the accessibility of inexpensive consumer wifi 
products, RICHAIR2030 calls for sustainable local  and self-organized 
network building - share and consume, be engaged, be involved.

We encourage your participation with your laptops and wifi cards.

definitely able to attend.

The workshop is the first in the YOUR MACHINES series of workshops, 
providing hands-on introductions to the kinds of creative work that can 
be produced through open source technologies, ranging from wireless 
networking to programming live audio-visual interactive works. Further 
workshops will take place later this year.

The workshops are organised by Simon Yuill, hosted and co-ordinated by 
CCA, and supported by the Scottish Arts Council.  CCA is Glasgow's
