Chicago New Media Summit 2008

chicagoculturalcentermnp.jpg

The Chicago New Media Summit 2008 Launch Event is aiming to pioneer Chicago as the new media capital of the world. With Mayor Daly’s approval and a cross industry reach, the summit is a spark to a town that seems lost into as what direction traditional media is moving towards.

Collaborate with thought leaders from Internet, media, entertainment, advertising and gaming industries to share technology and convergence trends, create alliances, promote new ventures and point to what’s next.

Bruce Dumont, panel moderator, pointed out that he was the recipient of Obama’s first fundraising call, where the Junior Senator stated that "We [Chicago] have to prove we’re in the major leagues."

Three goals/guidelines were projected at the event:

1. Create content

2. Invest in creative developers

3. Educate others about new media

Organized in only 9 months, watch out for the September 15-16 talks, performances and gala….

Hil St. Soul

Is actually pretty ill-the singer from Zimbabwe (by way of London), Hilary Mwelwe, finds her niche alongside artists like Jill Scott, Bilal, and neo soul peoples like this. Check out some of her new joints off the album Black Rose, which drops on June 10th.

Fever Pitch : The art of football

zidaneninjamnp.jpg

Eduardo Galeano (the Roland Barthes of football writing) describes a€the history of soccera€™ as a€a sad voyage from beauty to dutya€™. That a€dutya€™ is paid to the sports a€telecracya€™, in which a€functionaries specialize in avoiding defeata€™.3 Artists respond to this aspect of the game with melancholy and nostalgia a€" and often both. In a€biga€™ art such as Farockia€™s installation and Gordon and Parrenoa€™s film, both of which were made in collaboration with that telecracy, the game itself is a receding horizon of pure experience in which the player dissolves with a pivot and a swing of the foot. frieze
