"we are already out of our sphere. We cannot go back. We must choose: either to surrender our existence in a warm and cosy world of controlled memory frames, or to join the new networks, the new grapevines, to discover who we really are at the limit of an information space where we can learn to live."
-- Jacques Vallee, "The Network Revolution", 1982

Oooh the Berlin Juggling convention is finally back! Mid September in Wuhlheide. Will be a great follow up to the EJC! https://www.jugglingedge.com/forum.php?Tag=BerlinerJonglierConvention2017 #ejc #berlin #juggling
