Public Domain Fashion; Internet STreaming
- Ana Ilic Lagundjin, I was very happy that Sasha and Zdenka Mrkailo and I
could learn about you at the Cafe Des Arts in Sombor, Serbia. I'm glad
that you've started working together on Public Domain Fashion. I share
your letter with the Global Villages working group and also with the
COMMUNIA mailing list.
I also note that our team in Lithuania has suggested that they come to the
London COMMUNIA meeting to do live video streaming as we did in Vilnius.
Zenonas Anusauskas has done this for the Parliament, City Hall, etc. ever
more creatively. And I propose that our team offer to do this for the
Oekonux meeting which will take place March 27-29 in Manchester, UK
http://www.oekonux-conference.org immediately after COMMUNIA meeting March
It would be a way to build bridges with the Oekonux community.
