Como lo prometido es deuda, adjunto la traducción al inglés del 
call4nodes. Y ya van 4!  Quién dá mas??  xD  Lo mando en texto plano de 
kWrite, si queréis algún formato en especial pedidlo  ;)

Y por otra parte quería pediros opinión acerca del posible interés de 
una charla sobre vídeo: tarjetas de TV (bttv, ver la tele, etc), captura 
de vídeo (digital y analógico), edición de vídeo (kino), formatos de 
vídeo (características, un poco de historia, funcionamiento de los 
formatos más usados) y quizás extenderme algo también en el tratamiento 
de audio.

¿Lo véis interesante? ¿Alguien va a ofrecer algo similar? De resultar de 
interés, lo planifico un poco más y os relleno el "formulario" con más 
detalle para que lo discutamos con datos más concretos aquí y en charlas 
@ sindominio.net

..:: INTRO ::..

This message is just an invitation for you to take part in HackMeeting '03, by proposing work/activities/spreading nodes, and weave, as usual, activities and meetings' net around hacktivism, cyberspace, telematics and their technopolitics dimensions, on a  weekend in which manifestates the crowd's cyborg that the HackMeeting (HM) is. We've changed the traditional call4papers with the call4nodes to not restrict articles (papers) participation but a wide fan of posibilities (workshops, talks, boards, exposures, posters, etc.) which we've called nodes. As we supose you know, HM is a shared event in which the relation between organizer and attendings doesn't exist, because of the need to automanage the meeting by all of us. HM will consist in talks, discussions, workshops, clashes, and another nodes, for which speakers, coordinators, etc., are needed.

This year, HM walks under the shadow of waves of evacuations and threats of evictions from CSOA's (Self-Moved Occupied Social Centers), i.e. Les Naus (CSOA's that develop the HM's born in Spain ---http://sindominio.net/lesnaus ) or Labo03, recently evacuated (in which last HM was ---http://sindominio.net/laboratorio). This wave isn't a fortunately agreement between army forces executing spontaneus judicial orders (so many times nonexistents), but a program bureaucraticly compiled to kill any try of mass experimentation, share knowledge and habilities, and build open nets and spaces. LSSI, last judicial attacks to p2p nets, european software patents, new SGAE's royalties or new european guideline to support the "intelectual property" are only a few examples about what's happening in cyberspace, too. That's because this HM want to defend the right to experiment freely, and to open tecnopolitics, telematics and social spaces of collective creation, builded from hacktivism or from "reality hacking": passion to go beyond limits, (re)build and automove spaces and social codes.
