Possible Ars Electronica travel plans? 19 August, 2008 at 7:14 am

The Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria, looms. It runs from Thu 04/Sep to Tue 09/Sep. I’m thinking about going, and see there is a Central Europe Couchsurfing meeting, Czechsurfing, happening just a few days afterwards in nearby Prague from Fri 12/Sep to Sun 14/Sep. Prague is also close to Berlin, a place I’d really like to visit again. See the driving route from Salzburg to Linz, Praha and Berlin for an idea of proximity.

Keep in mind that I’m putting on visuals at Mind! in Brixton on Wed 03/Sep and Wed 17/Sep (10pm-2am).
