The Linux Multimedia Workshop took place in February 2000 at Moving Art Studio, Brussels. It has been free for the participants, they just had to provide their hardware.

Most PCs today are equipped with a commercial operating system. The Microsoft Corporation has a virtual monopoly through its Windows product. Despite the fact that some of its users already have infected it with hundreds of computer virus', demonstrating its weaknesses, it still remains the number one choice amongst the users.
In contrast to traditional operating systems where the source code is a closely guarded secret, the free distribution of such a code allows for the participation of the users, which in turn continually improve and update it very quickly. Over and above their obvious benefits, through being free, open source software offers a social alternative by opening up access to cutting edge technology for anybody.
Throughout the workshop we constructed PCs from scratch and installed them with free software. The aim was to develop artistic content on an open, high performance platform (LINUX), and to investigate in practice manipulation of images, sound and networking. The present videostream has been taken during the initial two weeks of the workshop.

Moving Art Studio wishes to thank Frédéric Jadoul for his help.

conference by Jean-Joseph Goux

The use of banknotes in the last century and bank cards during the last decades should be regarded as the first steps towards the dematerialization of money.The process seems to be amplified by the perspective of electronic transactions. After paper and plastic money, digital currency emphasizes the purely informative nature of the money medium ...

Core War "Westbank Industries and Core War"
speech by Stuart Rosenberg
Stuart Rosenberg took part in the beta testing of E-cash, an internet payment method developed by Digicash. He designed a virtual bank where users could get involved in financial transactions like stock exchange, lotto, online shopping and betting. The actual transactions could be seen in an animated 3D model while taking place. Stuart Rosenberg mainly states that software money potentially permits anonymous usage.
Collectif "Meeting avec le Collectif sans nom, Bruxelles"
by Moving Art Studio
The Collectif sans nom is a radical squat project in Brussels. On Sun, 6 Sep 1998 01:34:45 +0200 they sent us an e-mail containing the following quoted text:

"Le Collectif Sans Nom a fait le choix autant pour chacun de ses membres que collectivement de se mettre en porte à faux face à une société qui érige la valeur "argent" comme seul critère et comme seule logique d'existence, au risque d'opérer une rupture avec une légalité qui cautionne cette valeur "argent". Par ce fait-même, le collectif entre en résistance contre les logiques marchandes qui ont pour principales prétentions de réduire l'humain à un produit que l'on jette après usage."

As we were busy with the project about digital money we decided to ask them some questions on their perception of money. This videostream is a short editing of the dialogue in French language which took place in their squat.
