SHARE: Multimedia collaborative forum in emergence

Now nearly six years old, SHARE ( has spread to 8 cities worldwide, with 3 more expected to launch in 2007.

SHARE is an open community, forum, and jam session for audio/visual artists and those who are curious. It accepts all formats/methods of approach and expression. SHARE provides a basic infrastructure and helps people to use it to perform together. As a result, it becomes a big uncontrolled multimedia openjam. SHARE accepts all and never curates. SHARE is a loose-form container without any content. SHARE has no leader but many helpers, and it has never been owned by any particular individuals -- It is 'shared' by everyone. SHARE is a space for people to meet, chat, and play together. SHARE doesn't ask people to reveal their identities to give them an option to remain anonymous. SHARE encourages open-source development of soft/hardware and thoughts. The idea of following the "Billboard Top 100" is long over -- The future is for people to choose their tools to make their own songs, images, and ideas.
