In 2015 V2_ launched the V2_Community initiative in order to connect the
many artists, hackers, tinkerers, inventors and philosophers in our
network and see how V2_ can provide a platform to grow, experiment,
prototype and share work. If you are interested in taking part or
contributing to our community program get in touch with me.
I talked to Vivian and she is happy to let you use KDH to host public
events. To make it happen, I need:
- Name of one of you will be liaison/responsible for these events, and
who will be directly in touch with Vivian, Petra, and the FA student
responsible of the KDH 'Nachtwacht'.
- A page on the wiki, describing the format, intention, audience
expected/invited, typical setup if any, etc.
The readings are actually *not* for Tuesday, but the following Tuesday.
Also, this coming Tuesday, Silvio will provide some of the texts that
are hard to find. You don't have to buy anything.
That said, if you want to go ahead and start to reading some of the
material, this is of course much appreciated and useful!
Last but not least, Silvio is on the XPUB list, so if you need
clarification, you can write here directly. Likewise, if you have
questions about finding/sharing some of the texts, you can also ask

Hello XPUB1 and XPUB2,
Small reminder that if *several* of you are interested in the *same*
workshop/course or specific introduction to some machines available at
the WdKA stations, you can check with Leslie to help you arrange it!
For instance, how to use the Riso machines, the 3D printers, a
crash course in a specific software, etc.
These can be super handy to acquire extra skills for your projects, or
complement what you will be doing during the prototyping module at XPUB.
As you know, from either using them already or hearing about them in the
past days, the Raspberry Pis are a handy prototyping tool, that is used
a lot at XPUB. We plan to have a few RPis available for workshops, or
for running particular projects, such as local XPUB server sandboxes
(more about it soon), XPPL, EtherBox, Bibliotecha, special issue
projects and other things; but we also strongly encourage that each one
of you purchase their own RPi, that you can use as your own prototyping
platform, take home, keep after you graduate, etc.
The total price is around €60,- which is relatively cheap if you
consider it is a full fledged computer, that can be repurposed for many
You can order RPis online, the prices are the same everywhere more or
less. We have a good experience with Kiwi-electronics, but you can order
them in many places (BTW the go-to-place for consumer electronics price
watch in the Netherlands is https://tweakers.net/pricewatch/)
You need the RPi itself, a Power Supply, and an SD Card.
Pi 3 B+ 39.95€
Power supply 9.95€
Micro SD card+Adapter GB + SD Adapter 8.95€
Sometimes, all the needed parts come as part of a promotional bundle,
and some accessories can be also purchased but are not mandatory (like a
If you have questions let us know! André will give a crash course on
Monday and you will start using a shared RPi on the studio network.
You don't need to have your own RPi for Monday.
Note for second years: we need you to return the Pis we lend you last
year, unless they are being used to run collective projects, such as
XPPL. Can you please send us a list of the Pis that are being used in
collective projects? If your graduation project requires a Pi, you can
use your graduation project budget to purchase it, but it will have to
remain at XPUB after your graduation.

As promised, we will spend 2-3H on Monday to discuss some aspects of
your study for the coming year and how the staff will work with you
throughout the year. This is more of a bird's-eye view discussion, as
each of the staff will certainly get in more details in their respective
Next to that, it would be useful to start talking about your plans/ideas
for this year, so we will make also room to discuss about it together.
See you Monday!
