Cyberzine Workshop In Worm Rotterdam

Saturday 10 February at the Worm Institute For Avant Garde Media Rotterdam – I’ll do a ‘Make Your Own Shadow Wolf Cyberzine’ seminar. From 15:00 till 19:00 me and the participants are going to make a new issue of this e-zine.

UPDATE: If you want to attend this workshop please download
the necessary software & template here (Linux – MAC – Windows)

Legowelt will give a brief introduction and history on ’cyberpunk’ E-Zines (or Cyberzines), pre internet BBS culture, ASCII art and explain how to come up with ideas, subjects, write articles, make ASCII Art yourself and use the necessary software (SEAMONKEY composer in this case) – then we will put together an entire cyberzine, each of the participants contributing to this new special issue.

E-zines/Cyberzines  were mostly ASCII text file based zines that were distributed through telephone modem computer networks and floppy disks before the dawn of the internet – often distributed through BBS’s (Bulletin Board Systems check out this cool documentary on this subject).

These E-zines were text files written by hackers, freaks, nerds, artists, Sci-Fi
fans, outcasts, psychotic weirdos, mad dealers and kindred folk, about what
was happening in their lives, to reach out to other people with similar
interests, lonely people  scattered around the world connecting in
CYBERSPACE and creating their own micro cultures around their hobbies and
beliefs. Most of these e-zines would be about hacking and anarchic subjects.
They  would have cool names like MAGIK (Master Anarchists Giving Illicit
Knowledge) MINDCRIME, The Scrolls of Serenia, HAKD (Ho’z ASCII Anarchy
Komputerz and  Drugz), SURFPUNK Technical Journal, some of them like the
legendary PHRACK and HEX40 magazines still exist today.

CYBERZINES are more important then ever – especially nowadays were
it seems that all these original romantic values of the cyberpunk/space
world  are falling apart with corporate institutions dumbing everything
down. CYBERSPACE is not facebook, twitter, LinkedIn or your google+
prison which scans every fart you make to sell you more useless stuff you
don’t need for your consumer selfie “look at me I am so happy” lifestyle.
CYBERSPACE extends all over the place, lightyears removed from your
lolcatz and facebook likes…a transcendental hyperreality matrix
from seedy little corners only visited by enlightened freaks to an infinite
world of clandestine knowledge that extends into infinity without CONTROL

Start: 15:00 End: 19:00 WORM #Wunderbar Foyer
Boomgaardsstraat 71 Rotterdam

This event is free
