R™ark, (Los Angeles, USA)
Corporate Consulting for the 21st Century

Rtmark is a corporation that funds the sabotage of corporate culture.
Just as corporations are solely and entirely machines to increase their shareholders' wealth (often to the detriment of organic life) so RTMark is a machine to improve its shareholders' life (sometimes to the detriment of corporate wealth). As a public company we welcome shareholders to participate by submitting ideas, work or funds. Investors can then sit back and watch as their funds reap cultural profit by *any* and *all* means necessary--just like in the financial market!

The authors of the books 'Hackerland' and 'Hackertales' give away private details. As insiders of the cracker scene they answer questions like: What are the origins of the scene? How is it organized? What are it's codes? Where does the scene meet? And how does it protect itself? This and much more you will learn from the presentation which will additionally show unique visual material, i.e. cracktros and demos.
After the presentation we'll have a little finissage of the media lab with Denis and Evrim giving tastings of chiptuned music.
