THE SOCIAL WEB IS HERE !

Hosting a Virtual Community means continuing the STR-shop in Vienna, which is comparable in opening hours, organising projects, symposia, clubbings.

To communicate dislocated and publish multimedia in Realtime is an important experience inside the Web.

Gunafa - newsletter :


welcome to the Station Rose Newsletter 05.
1996
 
This time I am the writer of the newsletter. I have a good reason for that. Station Rose just completed the studio-move to a new physical location. Busy weeks are behind us. We are @home in a building in the 16th&17th floor in Frankfurt since 4 weeks & we are BACK in the Net!
We have an overview of the city in any direction - ensemble avec ISDN. A magic place. Analogue meets digital.
 After our "Digital Cocooning-Phase" having lasted for a year or so, Gary & me were thrown into RL on from spring. We had to leave cyberspace for so very analogue reasons. A funny reality, cause shortly before that moment happened, we got e-mail by JonathanE., a Microtimes journalist , sending the message:
 "Dont be so damn virtual" .
We had to live so much time in RL. We had to morph our Frankfurt studio No.1 into the new one.
& WE MOVED real objects- computers, keyboards, modems, monitors, clothes, boots, books & shelves, carpets, tables, lamps, guitars, plants, papers,...) by hand.
Meanwhile our newsletter-avatar Fett Tedget, who btw is more into analogue anyway, had the same thing going on->moving to a new place. These are the News from Frankfurt, btw- many interesting humans are moving these days- a big morph of habitats here. WE ARE THE FIRST ONES TO BE BACK !
 We are already working on broadcasting over the internet once a week in realtime & and we updated our site.
so please check it out!  Until soon so, n-joy that hot summer 96 ! Life is wonderful !
 
Elisa Rose
 
P.S.: I just got a phone call by fett 1 hour ago, and we fixed a meeting for next week.
