New Blankets is a non-profit organization founded to re-invent the  
Free Public Library.  Its current focus is on expanding read/write  
computer literacy, and creating new ways to circumvent barriers in  
order to make computers more accessible.  New Blankets is a voluntary  
coalition of artists, musicians, scientists, engineers, librarians,  
parents and community activists throughout the country dedicated to  
the networked support of mutually enriching learning communities.

Please join us Friday, June 25, from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Gottesman  
Library, Teachers College, Columbia University  where we will be  
describing and brainstorming about New Blankets' progress in the past  
two years, and welcoming Hans-Christoph Steiner as our First Artist-in- 
Transit Fellow. You can also look forward to  strumming the Suitcase  
Supercomputer and viewing other exhibits exploring artworks and  

Hans-Christoph brings with him years of experience of sharing,  
teaching and and collaborating with an eye towards building  
community.  He has been involved in designing interactive software  
with a focus on human perceptual capabilities, building networks with  
free software, and composing music with computers,  He has been  
instrumental in the development and distribution of Pure Data, a  
graphical programming language.  He sees Pd as an intuitive way 'in'  
to read/write computer literacy and will be furthering New Blankets
