Needed: Tech Jams
It would be entertaining and instructive to attend a jam session of highly skilled tech types. The ambiance would be that of a karaoke bar, but the equipment onstage would be a set of fearsome multimedia computer systems. The concept would be that you wait your turn to get up there and do something with the huge display, the audio synthesizer, the 3D sculpting printer, and whatever other toys they have. No doubt the best acts would feature some audience participation. (Has anyone yet actually invented Aldous Huxley’s “feelies” movies?) Example: instant group therapy, with volunteers from the audience wired for galvanic skin response, heartrate, etc., complete with therapeutically trained group leader and audio and visual feedback indicating how each group member is responding up on the big display.
