The department former audiovisual of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy released a Tart DVD with films of its (ex)students. The DVD contains some utterly crappy, as well as some utterly fantastic films. Although I was never a student at this department, my Amateurs is featured on the DVD in a special guest appearance. This silver disk can be bought in some Dutch shops as well as online.
High technology = low transparancy. Klad is a low tech webservice dedicated to managing your personal text notes.
You can dump your memos and texts at klad and pick them up later. Use klad to write a novel or manage agenda, anything goes as long as it's plain text. Klad is free, there is no business plan. I made this little service with some friends.

My interactive works are featured on a site called pixelsweat.
I think it is great that I can access my works without having to click
through this bullshit.

Posters advertise King Kong as being 50 feet high. This is an exaggeration to help sell movie tickets. In reality, Kong was much smaller.
