Dear Friends of Art and Technology,

There could be a small commission for your services if a rumored donation
arrives from World Trust Organization. Whether or not the money comes in,
would you please consider using your programming skills to support our
"KidCast For Peace; Solutions For a Better World" project? Perhaps you
know someone on Maui who might lend a hand?

I am delighted to announce server space has been donated by the Maui High
Performance Computer Center thanks to their director of Marketing, Margaret
Lewis, to Visionary Artists Resources Including Other Unique Services to
support the repository of multimedia files, serving programming and content
back up to the Net. Thanks Margaret!

We need a self-organizing database to receive the "kids" multimedia
suggestions for a better world. I would like to use WODA since it fits our
need perfectally:

WODA resource: http://itc.fgg.uni-lj.si/woda/ is a pearl script that needs
a bit (small bit) of configuring server specific pointers and user options.
We had it in operation here at Creativity Cafe until it all came creashing
down when our server was used to originate spam, and brought down forever.
The ruins still exist at:
http://creativity.net/cgi-bin/nu4m/cc4m/index.cgi, if you would like to

If this is something you might have interest in and bandwidth for, please
contact us immediately with your offer of support? Thanks in advance!

We need someone to design
the Kidcast For Peace KidCast 2000 "Gallery Of Solutions" there so that
submissions of audio (all file formats), video (ditto) and written
words--in addition to documentation from our live video conferences on
Earth Day (4/22), can be automitically added to a database (WODA
suggested), indexed dynamically and a "judging menu" of submissions
displayed and dynamically updated of the entries. The public surfing in,
votes on the best work in several catagories, dynamic vote tallying,
prizes awarded for works in various catagories. Is this the kind of thing
you might assist with in terms of design, implimentation or any other
things you might think of? Just for starters! :-).

Creativity Cafe's "KidCast For Peace; Solutions For a Better World;" is a
telecommunications activity in which kids meet (Earth Day, April 22, 2000
is next) in videoconferences several times a year to share their heart and
ideas for making the world a happier, healthier, and more peaceful/safer
place. Kids (of all ages with focus on K-12) create analog and digital art,
animation, web sites, etc. that demonstrate suggestions for improving the
planet and its peoples. The actual KidCast For Peace is a CU-SeeMe multi
node videoconference in which kids share their work interactively with
their peers globally. We are giving children an opportunity to tell the
adults what to do for a change and to help shape the world they will
inherit. Complete details are found in the teleactivity center; KidCast
Central: http://creativity.net/kidcast2.html. Please participate and
assist our future leaders!
