Documentation of the ProtoCultural Paris event, held on 30 - 31 October 2015 at EKULZ, Paris, France. Including an interview with Barry Threw and the voice of Bassel Khartabil, circa 2011.
ProtoCultural Paris gathers energies and knowledge from developers, scientists, artists, art geeks and the random curious during two days to support the #NEWPALMYRA project.
The #NEWPALMYRA project is an online community platform and data repository dedicated to the capture, preservation, sharing, and creative reuse of data about the ancient city of Palmyra.
#NEWPALMYRA has been started by Bassel Khartabil, a beloved technologist and Internet volunteer detained in Syria since March 15, 2012. He is today in urgent danger. For more information, visit: freebassel.org; newpalmyra.org, protocultural.org
