Floating Points 4: Participatory Media.

Emerson College and New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. (NRPA) present FloatingPoints 4: Participatory Media, a speaker series that addresses the recent emergence of inexpensive, worldwide, and many-to-many publishing and communication media. Built on Internet and wireless communication technologies, these media have transformed the relationship between cultural producers and consumers.

This is the fourth in an ongoing series of lectures and discussions planned with NRPA and its world-renowned website, Turbulence.org.

FloatingPoints 4 consists of three events: two evenings featuring two presentations each, and the third with a moderated panel discussion. Emerson College's Bill Bordy Theatre, 216 Tremont Street, hosted the first two events on Wednesday, February 28 and Wednesday, March 28, both at 7 p.m. and the panel discussion at the Museum of Science in Cahners ComputerPlace on Wednesday, April 25 at 7 p.m. during the Boston Cyberarts Festival.
