2005 Rockefeller New Media Foundation Proposal
This proposal is for a set of projects developing new technologies for politically activist interventions. The proposal is largely similar to last year's, as the overall goals remain unchanged and (mostly) unfunded. I will outline three activist technologies, with varying levels of technical sophistication, but in actuality I hope to develop more, and to do so in quick response to future political situations. In addition to developing the actual final technologies, I will develop a set of open source resources to teach hardware engineering from an activist perspective, and a set of open source designs for building-block technologies. Finally, I will stage, exhibit, and publicly use these technologies.
