Hi Jim, YES! Conroy Badger programmed almost all of the piece. His name, together with all the credits for the piece, were supposed to be sent in the press release that the Germans issued and Rhizome published. They have told me that they have already "corrected it" and sent it out again. For the record, here are the full credits:
o Rafael Lozano-Hemmer - Concept, direction, grammar rules.
o Conroy Badger - Programming.
o Will Bauer, Ana Parga, Sandra Badger, Colin Griffiths, Andreas Broeckmann (curator: City Gaze), realities:united, Ulrike Kneitschel, Phil Sunderhauf, John deKron - Production support.
o Ana Parga, Maria Velarde Torres, Luis Jimenez-Carles, Luis Parga, Gabriela Raventos - Spanish word input.
o Rebecca MacSween, Jennifer Laughlin, Susie Ramsay - English word input.
o Stephan Klinger, Sakrowski, Till Braband - German rules and word input.
