The Open Mic/Mouse on the evening of Wednesday, May2, is free and open to all. Everyone is welcome to take a turn at the mic and mouse–the only requirement is that you conceive of your work as “electronic literature” in some form.
Technology in the room will be a Windows machine, with accompanying projection and sound capabilities (and an internet connection).
We have no control over the software installaion, but you can assume a current generation Web browser, probably Firefox. You cannot necessarily assume the presence of particular plug-ins.
An altnerative will be to swap your own laptop into the room’s projection system. Doing that is easier for works without sound than those with sound (which require a separate set of cables to connect to the sound system in the room). It should be possible to plug USB memory sticks into the computer in the room.
Bottom line is please plan some flexibility into presentation options. Don’t assume you will be able to show a piece that demands minute particulars in terms of its technical environment. We’ll do our best, but it’s not our room, it’s not our tech, and we can’t promise .
Please sign-up in the Comments, below, so we have a working list of authors.
