looking forward to imnput from you the architects, dreamers, doers of tomorow, and TODAY
a forum about "future of mainstream media" was scheduled to happened, for free, inside walls of digital hub. a limited number of people could get to and participate in this forum, as part of imc-ie i sent a mail to the list outlining a proposal to the collective about attempting to create a live stream of the event, so that those unable to attend, due to work, living in a different country etc, could still listen and maybe even participate in the event.
i got only 1 email response to this mail i sent, saying cant get there, but support idea. other imc'ers i met in public said idea sounded good to go for it, also at 2nd last imc-ie meeting i outlined a proposal to the group that was collected there about plans to do, more or less, what we have done today, at the meeting people said they were, more or less, in favour of the projects, at that point we were doing work with radio and attempting live streams in moore st and with the homeless network
anyway, this came together in the last few days and we (now clearly not the imc collective, but a group of friends and all at last nights seomra spraoi meeting) pitched in together to make it happen.
we got the stream up and running here in the social centre and the bits we heard were very relevant to this global network: the future of digital media, we heard eamon speaking, we heard others speaking, we tried to further the process by ensuring an easy mechanism for people not physically present to be able to participate in this discussion. this was an experiment, another step in an ongoing process,
so re u2 music etc, people there played music at lunchtime, i offered to play imc-radio files during the break, they wanted to not bother and play music- i had to head at this point to make the physical space in abbey st a reality
i did not hear the pro life bit refered to above, ill hear it soon, and will hear from people exactly what points were being made.
we have shown imc, clown films here today, now were showing "rural riot" by revolt video, people have come into the space, learned about stuff, watched films, listened to the forum from digi hub. most of the content from imc-ie collective has not been supportive, incl, our attempts to have the photo of "network age' pic put to front page to inform the imc-ie readers that this stream was happening, unfortunately for various reasons it did not happen, the event is over.
so where to from here: next real world indymedia ireland i suppose, for discussions about the collective moving into this space and having a real world media centre in dublin city, which we all hope will become a reality over the next few weeks.
the forum will has been archived and will be available to listen to soon.
im happy this has happened, we attempted to push the boundaries, to experiment, to raise issues for discussion, to attempt to make a dream a reality. we did it.
a small argument flared up within the imc-collective to do with improper acts in the name of the collective, without full suppor of the collective. this mostly comes from a lack of face to face meetings, some peoples difficulty with clikity clik land, a vagueness to how the imc collective actually works. but like all things these are little problems which will be ironed out soon enough:
imc-ie development : physical space and first live stream
