Attention Friends of V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media Art and Tecnology,

Please witness some great images of Burning Man, a phenomena of freedom akin to the rise of computers. Ok, well not quite... But still, what some people will go through to live "real life!" Thanks to Bruce Damer and his Avatar Appearances for his spectular photographs (see below).

On a sound note; Maui ONLY... A reminder of Jonathan Goldman's SOUND HEALING Seminar. Writer, performer, recording artist and master sound healing teacher will present HEALING WITH SOUND, Friday night, Oct 6 at Unity Church in Wailuku. We hope you will join us in a special presentation of Tibetan Overtone Singing and Vocal Harmonics techniques. Jonathan's Maui appearance is being sponsored by Visionary Artists Resources Including Other Unique Services. Details: http://creativity.com/healing.

Hello friends and neighbors!

It has been months since I last gave you a report on our strange lives here
at the digital garden in California (to which we hope you will all come and
visit.. but not at once!). In late August Ms. Galen and I took our annual
pilgrimage to "Burning Man", an instant city of art and experience of
30,000 souls in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. I have just launched a Web
site with pictures and a bit of story, for your pleasure, at:
here you will see 70 Mph winds and flying gypsum dust clearing just in time
for the burning of the multistory man statue, with pyro and all, and a wild
experience in the
nether-techno-trance-cyber-creative-rave-drugs-art-blowout world that
Burning Man is.

Next, if you are online at 7pm Pacific Coast Time tomorrow (Monday). I will
be cybercast live by the good folks at the RedAppleOnline project of
American General in Houston. This is a great new virtual community for K-12
teachers for whom we built some special avatar worlds. You can run the
virtual worlds at www.redappleonline.com (no installation, just go on in..
they are Java). You can be part of the live audio/video broadcast I will be
doing Monday night (today) at 7pm California time by simply going to:
clicking on 56Kbs stream, choosing a one word login name and bingo, you
will be in our cybercast! Mostly educators but you can chat back.

On Oct 14-15 there will be our annual large cyberconference happening
inside 3D worlds on the net and at various physical locations around the
planet. See:
for a preview of the fantastic space station worlds that will host this
event. You can join us inside these Cyberspaces on those days, submit your
art or webcam, host an exhibit, or make a speech (let me know if you would
like to be in the program!).

In other news, last month Galen and I presented to a group from the
Pentagon on the future of software (smart folks, open dialogue). July I got
my dual US/Canadian citizenship after waiting for 6 years! With the Fall we
are harvesting 20 pounds of tomatoes a week from the greenhouse. The barn
upstairs is being built into a cyberstudio. This week we will be in
Tuscaloosa Alabama speaking to the University of Alabama. We are also
hosting a wedding here at the Garden on Oct 21 for dear friends (who are
also helping to build out the barn studio). All of this is described at our
home page at:

Well that's all for now folks, I hope you are all well and we hope to see
or hear from you sometime between now and 2001, for the continuing
cyber-space oddity of our lives!

Bruce & Galen
