The Urbana Independent Media Center

  • The Urbana Independent Media Center Open House last night went amazingly well. Random spot check head counts indicated that at several points in the evening we had around 70-80 people on the premises, and since lots of people just filtered through (though many stayed for quite some time), the total attendance was surely close to double that. The core IMC crew did a fabulous job of getting the place decorated and prepared (I can’t take any credit for that stuff). We had a nice list of speakers (I got to intro and kick things off), along with music by IMC-member Paul Kottheimerm and we posted some of our news stories around the buildnig and had listening and viewing stations for some of our media. I really hope this bodes well for the future of the UC-IMC as both a site of active citizen media production and as a welcoming community space.
