Cuba has many faces. But one of its lesser known is how Cubans access this worldwide network of networks called The Internet. We do know Cubans have to go through hoops in order to do things that we take for granted elsewhere and thus have mastered the art of achieving great things with a limited access to resources. This presentation is an ongoing research, a picture of the wonders that shape the networking landscape of this island and a wake-on-LAN message to connect with the rest of us.
Watch Internet Society's NYC MESH - PROJECTS & IDEAS on Livestream.com. We will have a series of short presentations on community networks and related projects and ideas, followed by discussions.

Art Bot -Les galeries d'art contemporains sont infiltrées par un nouveau type d'envahisseurs : les bots, ces logiciels qui exécutent des opérations de manière autonome en imitant le comportement humain.
Exploiting the large database of user-created digital files within the online 3D-Printing community Thingiverse, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez & Julien Deswaef have created a bot that compiles the randomly selected files to produce improbable virtual sculptures. Similar to a modern-day cadaver exquis, these productions fall somewhere between fine art and electronic spam.
"At Libre Graphics Meeting 2016 in London, Julien Deswaef presented a talk exploring how Git can aid graphic designers and other artists in their daily processes, as well as pinpointing Git's shortcomings for that user community."
