Ascii project in Amsterdam

I had already read something about the ascii project from the Internet, but now that I am trying to get to know more, it’s really getting more interesting.

for now I am just publishing some links:

ascii moves to the javastraat — Ascii

ASCII site (in english)

ASCII has a interesting translation “Amsterdam Subversive Center for Information Interchange”.

The project involves a place (in a squat), where you can use the internet, get to learn things about it, and there is lots of recycling, use and abuse of open source.

It’s a very nice project and I intend to learn much more and maybe try to help wherever I can.

I will listen to talk at the WTH – “Community wireless NL”, Wireless networks in Amsterdam and Leiden (Rudi Van Drunen, Jaap and Rop Gonggrijp), where there will be some talk about another very interesting project… – Amsterdam Network Collective – een draadloos (internet) netwerk in Amsterdam.

We will see.

What The Hack !

It’s official! Permit for WTH issued – inform your world!

We unofficially reported this in our previous Newsflash, but it is now as official as it can get: signature and all. We have the permit! It’s always great to have more people recognize that, ehm, well, we’re really not that dangerous.

Please inform everybody in your world that “What The Hack is going on!”. As a result of the WTH-ban-coverage quite some people might still assume that WTH is not taking place. Don’t leave them behind! Forward this newsflash, link to our News-page on , blog, post on your favourite boards and newsgroups, call your friends, do whatever it takes, because camping with all your friends is more fun.
