The Great Internet Sleepover 2007
Friday, August 24, 2007
Free and open to the public: 8–10PM
Pro net surfers and net surfing clubs from across the U.S. will converge upon Eyebeam to talk shop, play games, pitch tents, and make a hypertext mess big enough for mom to clean up in the morning. Party favors include homepages, net battles, GIF animation, dirt-style HTML and other web ephemera.

Not a net artist? Not to worry—the public is invited to join the party between 8–10PM, before the artists are locked-in for the night. Come witness a dead computer seance, observe the pros cruise the net, share web finds, and collaborate on web-based art projects and scavenger hunts. Once the doors are shut, all the action can be followed online at thegreatinter.net/sleepover.html, where the the artists will post into the wee hours of the morning.

The Great Internet Sleepover is aimed at highlighting and supportng a developing web art movement and aesthetic. It is a chance for artists and groups creating things on the internet to meet in person, while still “keeping it on the net.”

Participating surf clubs include:

and many others.
