Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

Fringe Explosion

Sun, 05/13/2007 - 22:02 -- rprice

This weekend has been a wee bit crazy. I've been updating Blogging Fringe like a crazy person. No, really. There are almost 80 shows in the festival this year, and I've been attempting to copy and paste several lines of text for each one. I've also got Denna, Kate, Jamie and Emily volunteering to help out. Of course everyone is welcome.

Last week I got a chance to interview my first Fringe artist, Courtney Cunningham. She's a clown, but not the kind you're used to.

Before I left for England I also interviewed Mark Baratelli about his online efforts for this year's festival. He's been doing some great stuff this year that makes me feel like I could be doing more. It's strange having people duplicating efforts, though. I wish we could be working together and getting paid a fair amount for it too.

Thursday is an opening night party (they call it a Gala, but can it be gala when you're meant to dress like a hippie?) with performaces and some manner of a VIP event. I never knew the Fringe was so elitist (openly). Ah well, I guess it comes with the territory.

If you want to track the discussion, add Blogging Fringe to your feed reader. If you want to see some shows, get down to Loch Haven Park starting Friday night. The festival goes through the 28th.
