De Geuzen (a foundation for multi-visual research)
Would you like some cream and sugar with your broadcast?
January → March 2008 / Thematic Project PZI Media Design


Next to or sometimes in conjunction with mainstream media, the web is a powerful platform for distributing alternative views, opinions, interests and ideas. With personal publishing tools such as blogs, IRC, live streams and video services, everyone potentially has their own speakers corner. But two classic, yet essential, questions remain: What do you want to say or show? And how do you get people to tune-in?
