In the last few days, the Ars Electronica Festival was going on. There were quite a number of interesting talks and panels. I especially enjoyed those about copyright, DRM, DMCA, intellectual property and all that stuff. Cindy Cohn was giving much insight on what's going on in the US regarding all that kind of stuff, and IMHO, she was definitely the highlight, and so thought many other people, because most questions that were asked by the audience were directed to Cindy.

After watching the panel on Tuesday, I sat together with Erich Moechel and Tim Pritlove, chatting a bit and listening to several quite interesting stories. Tim then showed us nice pictures from the Chaos Communication Camp, including a 360 degree panorama shot.

After that, I met Tamer, Kyrah, Thomas Warwaris and OJ, and OJ showed us parts of the AEC including an exclusive demo of the currently on-going port of Unreal Tournament to the AEC's CAVE.
