Shannon, Thank you very much for letting us know about the Eyebeam Open
Lab fellowships ($30,000 per year in New York City) for Public Domain
projects. Deadline August 15th.
The Open Lab is supporting work in: 1. Open Networks, 2. Open
Information, 3. Open Content, 4. Open Source, 5. Open Fabrication. So
this might also be of interest to the New Work community.
I will be applying for this. My project will be to discover, negotiate,
implement and promote social protocols for "civilization networks" to
work seemlessly together, much as we have been learning to do.
Another note: Kerry Santo is looking for full time (or part-time) work
in Edinburgh or online. Question: Who are the people that we know who
we would most like to work for? Some answers: Mel Young (of Consumer
Magazine), Leon Benjamin, Steve Bosserman, Peter Kaminski, Jerry
Michalski, Helmut Leitner. Any others?

This might be a good opportunity for you or someone else at the lab. Not
a lot of money but resources and support for developing open projects in
the public domain.

Eyebeam R&D Call for Fellows
I'm an advisor to Eyebeam R&D and they have recently posted a Call for
Call For Fellows
Eyebeam R&D seeks inaugural fellows to work on creative technology
projects in the Eyebeam Open Lab. The fellowship is a unique opportunity
to participate in a new kind of research environment and contribute to
the public domain.
The Open Lab is dedicated to public domain R&D. We are seeking
artists, hackers, designers and engineers to come to Eyebeam for a year
to develop pioneering work. The ideal fellow has experience creating
innovative creative technology projects, a love of collaborative
development, and a desire to distribute his or her work as widely as
Participation in the R&D Fellows program includes:
* One year fellowship
* 4 days/week commitment
* $30,000 annual stipend + health benefits
Work created within the Open Lab will be widely distributed and
freely available under open licenses. All code will be released under
GPL, media will be released under Creative Commons, and hardware
projects will be released with Do-It-Yourself instruction kits...
There's more on their site. Take a look if you're interested. I have a
lot of respect for what the Eyebeam team have done and look forward to
seeing some cool stuff from this program.
