cityborg is a cultural project oriented to build a digital open platform to generate social networks in our mediated environments.
our open basis are the cityborg distro, (you can find the iso image and more info
at this link -> BorG_live ) a gnu/linux distribution, and the related internet node, cityborg.net.
we incorporate context weblog – information on arts, science, technology, and their intersections – to track the emerging culture and transform the news on cutting edge technologies in new features for cityborg distro.
the founders members of cityborg are david galligani, tom deforce and
josep saldaña, people involved in related projects (as riereta.net, citymine(d), straddle3, fadaiat, indymedia, dorkbot, parccentralpark…).
the roots of cityborg are nurtured by the energy and growing dynamics of
‘collective of collectives’ in barcelona’ underground. in this ‘primordial
soup’ we feel the need for a new cultural tool that synthesyze and
contribute to the new cultural movement (free software, urban explorers, diyers, hackivists…).
