BE-IN 8: THE INAUGURAL BE-IN NETCAST
On January 11, 1996, Verbum staged one of the first global netcasts on the internet: the Eighth Annual Digital Be-In. Music by Haunted by Waters and the Venusians, and interviews with visionaries Jerry Brown, R.U. Sirius, John Barlow and Denise Caruso wer e beamed to a global audience. Be-In attendees were interviewed, cyber-reporters posted pictures and text to our Realtime Be-In. A highlight of the event was the launch of the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s “Blue Ribbon Campaign” for freedom of speech o n the internet.
From here you can access general information on Be-In 8, and you can go into the "Realtime Be-In" archive and access the record of the event as it was created that night. You can visit each of the 4 areas of the event – the Bridge, the Main Stage, the Dig
ital Frontier and the Visionaries Soapbox. The Digital Frontier has additional areas, including Attendee Interviews. You will find the archived pages for each area via the Time Capsule button at the bottom of the first page. Thanks for checking it out!
