"We Live In Public" Screening + Talk @ i^3! Member Picks

When: Thu., Oct. 15, 7:30 p.m. 2009
A special promotional screening of Sundance Grand Jury Prize Winner, “We Live in Public���, the story of internet pioneer and social engineering experimenter, Josh Harris. Filmmaker Ondi Timoner will be present for an intimate talk-back following the screening. Harris, aka the “Warhol of the Web���, founded Pseudo.com, the first Internet television network during the dot-com boom of the 1990s. He curated the ground breaking project “Quiet��� in an underground bunker in NYC where over 100 people lived together on camera for 30 days at the turn of the millennium. Harris proved how we willingly trade our privacy for the connection and recognition we all desire, but with every technological advancement such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter, becomes more elusive. Through his experiments, including a six-month stint living with his girlfriend under 24-hour surveillance which led to his mental collapse, Harris demonstrated the price we pay for living in public.
