and I ended up in Sao Paulo, 10000 kilometers away. In the Mediamatic workshop on RFID I get a call from Paulo Hartmann that my funding by the Mondriaan Foundation for Mobilefest has come through. I fly the next day and just back in Ghent I’m warmed by the sense of urgency and the negociated agency in what one might truly call oppportunistic environments. Good meetings every day, with Bronac Ferran being there – out of the true blue!
And look what we saw at Prestes Maia: the biggest squat in town. How organized, so clean and such brave people making do.
