''Don't hate the media, be the media'': Following the recent G20 protests in London and the advent of social networks and other web 2.0 technologies, Indymedia's raison d'être is possibly now even more relevant than when the grass roots alternative media network began during the 1999 protests against the WTO in Seattle. With participation from Indymedia, ClearerChannel.org, HacktionLab and Bristol Wireless amongst others, the Be the Media space is the place to find out about DIY media and get involved in a host of exciting debates and workshops about everything from producing your own media to intellectual property, copyright and the Creative Commons. The space also features a suite of recycled computers providing daily solar and wind powered Internet access courtesy of Bristol Wireless and evening cinema showing independent grass-roots films. Check the board outside the space for up-to-date details of what's on.
