WASTUN.ORG is a quarterly Hybrid Media Journal which will be relaunched in December 2003. It has been developed from the web version of a television evening dedicated to new forms of political activism that was comissioned by the german-french broadcasting station arte. The projects aims to intervene in the stagnating debates around globalization by releasing an online-publication on a regular basis that contains up to date contributions in a global view. WASTUN.ORG is based on an interactive Streaming Media Platform, that has been started as a prototype for the digitization of the â€œarteâ€ theme evening. The existing platform will be further developed as the kernel of a Hybrid Media Journal. The essential feature of WASTUN.ORG is its interactivity: Editors as well as registered users, guest authors as well as invited visitors, regular contributors as well as random visitors, they will all have access to the vast array of available materials that will be systematically extended to an archive of videos and stories from all over the world. In order to tell new stories, the users can mix and remix the clips of other contributors with their own material from their desktop, which they also can upload to the system. Old and new clips are constantly being interwoven and built by new contributions making different relations with those already uploaded. http://www.wastun.org
