I’m a graduate student in history of science and technology researching the political meanings which Raindance and others associated with portable video technology, and particularly the roles of utopianism and cybernetics in thinking about video. Ira Schneider suggested I attend your reunion at Loyola, and I’m very much looking forward to meeting each of you and hopefully talking a bit about your lives and experiences.

Congrats to all the Raindancers These long lasting friendships run deep. And, with Eliz as the host, should be lotsa fun.
I was interviewed about TVTV and the early video days by Paul Goldsmith last weekend in L.A. I told him that, of the early video production groups, Raindance was the Beatles, Videofreex the Rolling Stones and TVTV a supergroup like Blind Faith. What d’ya think?

I guess, then, that Nam June Paik would be Bob Dylan.

My first hands-on exposure to nonfiction video (other than art at EAI and theory at EAT–Experiments in Art and Technology) was at the Alternative Media Conference in Vermont in 1970 when the Raindancers showed Buckminster Fuller video on portapak. Tthen we did some taping of the event and ourselves. I was hooked for life from then on. So, I’m ready for the reunion after 39+ years, 500+ TV shows, and some 6000 videos on mediaburn.org.

I couldn’t make it down to campus in time so I tried to watch the live stream, but had problems with audio (possibly on my end). Will an archive be posted for later viewing?
