Good times in Berlin. We certainly recieved alot of attention for this and gathered lots of cool ideas. We’re still sorting them out. Stay tuned about the results and on the next FB resistance workshop in Barcelona in 2 weeks.
The workshop was originally planned for 10 peeps, but we just raised it to 30 chairs!! So if you want to participate in the workshop (part of this year’s Transmediale Berlin festival) – Submit this form right now with a quick sentence and info about you!!
Facebook Resistance is a research initiative accepting the status quo of Facebook beeing the dominant social identity management system, researching on ways to change it’s rules and functionality from inside the system, locally via Browser App.
FB sets the rules of how-to behave, so we’re asking: Are we happy to live in their visualisation of our online identity or do we want to change it? A change can be as trivial as adding a background-image. Facebook designing your online identity is like IKEA designing your appartment. The only individuality lies in the family pictures standing in your BILLY shelves.

Imma let you finish Barbara Kisseler (Permanent Secretary of the State of Berlin), but i’ve had a little sippy sippy, so fffffats gonna get a little lippy lippy… WWKD: What would kanye do?
Somewhere amidst the boos and hisses, i had a moment of clarity. Despite all of our fffffuckery, I think GOOGLE just won Transmediale 10. First runner-up prize went to Google’s own Creative Lab Tech Lead, Aaron Koblin, for his collaboration with Daniel Massey that had something to do with a bicycle but sounded like a choir of intubated drunks.
And the Tranny Oscar went to Michelle Teran for her quite good and goodly Google-sponsored orgy of G-apps, Youtube and Google Earth. I think it was also an add for Mr.Goodbar, but I can’t tell for sure.
You probably won’t be surprised to hear that Google was a sponsor for Transmediale 10. Oh well… atleast they aren’t evil.
FAT is already hard at work on a sure-fire winner for TM11. See you next year Stephen!
