11:30 – 11:50 Featured speaker – Ravi Jain – [ http://ravijain.org ]
Ravi Jain will talk on Sunday about the New Media Cake show at the Axiom Gallery that opened on Friday:
Ravi is creating a wikake (wiki-cake) with a Wikake video blog component (Wikaklog). Over the course of the show, over the next few weeks, viewers/visitors will be able to submit their ideas and opinions on each stage of building a cake: cake flavor, frosting/filling, shape, decoration. So that at the end of the show — a true open source collaborative cake will have been created!
12:00 Make Media
Ravi will bring samples from Round One of the wiki-cake, in addition to showing the Wikaklog, and shoot some video of reactions/votes to post (People who taste the actual samples in each round have weighted votes in determining the final outcome).
