Videoblogging, Webzines and Zombies


Eddie Codel is a video producer, blogger and media activist from San Francisco, California. His main project is Geek Entertainment Television (GETV), a one year old videoblog which pokes from inside the technology bubble as it re-inflates. GETV generally focuses on interviews with tech geeks at various events and parties around the San Francisco & Silicon Valley areas. Eddie is the co-founder and producer of the Webzine Conference series, since it’s inception in 1998 in San Francisco. Webzine is a two day conference and expo for the promotion of independent publishing on the Internet.

Eddie will give a lecture and multimedia presentation titled “Videoblogging, Webzines and Zombies” on Monday (December 11) at 7:45 PM at Studio Informationdesign (FH JOANNEUM) in Graz. Eddie will give an overview of the emerging videoblogging scene, the culture of independent online publishing and how it relates to the underground tech art scene in San Francisco.

Videoblogging has emerged as a powerful medium for challenging the top down hierarchy of video production and distribution in the world. No longer do we need Hollywood to dictate the terms of entertainment culture. Anyone can learn to videoblog and do it for free. Passion and talent are the only ingredients one needs.

San Francisco has a thriving independent technology art scene. This is no accident considering her location to Silicon Valley and history of the counterculture movement in the United States. Technology and freaks together have produced some interesting social occasions, such as zombie flash mobs, fire breathing and fear inducing robotic performances and the bacchanalian desert camp out known as Burning Man.

Where, when?
Monday, December 11, 7:45 PM @ Studio (3rd floor) of the “FH-Studiengangs Informationsdesign” (University of Applied Sciences JOANNEUM, Alte Poststra├če 152, A-8020 Graz).
