CONSENSUSCON is a one-night satirical event of collaborative performances and screenings investigating language, writing, and communication within utopian, techno-optimistic networked culture.

_____________________________________

To get an idea of what to expect from CONSENSUSCON
...imagine a reality
where Mark Zuckerberg went to artschool.

***

...Imagine a young Zuck going to noise shows in basements,
doing all sorts of weird drugs, and learning about Marxism
and Samuel Beckett and Baudrillard...

***

...Imagine him voting for Obama
(once enthusiastically, and once reluctantly–)
and marching with Occupy!

...Imagine if, instead of worshiping Steve Jobs and Ayn Rand,
Silicon Valley idolized Duchamp and Andy Kaufman.

***

Imagine if Facebook was just some large-scale dadaist performance, culminating in a simultaneous worldwide ALS ice bucket challenge!

In that reality, instead of TED talks,
You’d have CONSENSUSCON!

CONSENSUSCON 2014 is a one-night event celebrating the launch of Consensus Online Writing Platform: a beautiful, game-changing cloud-based tool for realtime book collaboration.
