We thank everyone who worked for months to make this event possible. And all of you who populate the here and now, doing great things together.

Stay safe, be excellent, even if the coming year …

Hello!

An important part of the real life Congress are the numerous self-organized sessions (SoS). We’re eager to make this possible for you at rC3.

It’s easier than you think. You open the engine room and at the tab “selforganized” you click on “create SoS”. Then you enter the details of your self-organized session. You can use Markdown in the description field. Remember to tick the box “public”, so your session shows up in the schedule as well as via search.

After saving your session it will appear on the overview page as well as via the search …

The end of the year is near and so is the second edition of the Remote Chaos Experience (rC3 2021). Many helping hands have been preparing everything for months now, so hopefully our virtual get-together will once again be a highlight of the year.

Against all our expectations, wishes and dreams, there won’t be an in-person Congress again this year. But in all likelihood, it won’t be a fully remote Congress either. And it won’t be just a repeat of last year. It’s going to be a new de-centralized (remote) Congress, with local spaces hosting events and distributed stages.

The stages are managed by individual channels. Each channel has its own focus and Call for Participation.

Once upon a time, the people of the nerds wanted to celebrate their annual festival. But the lands were struck by a pestilence, and it was dangerous to go out and meet other entities. The nerds lamented, for their festival was the highest holiday in their world. But they were all wise creatures, and since wise creatures do not let other creatures come to harm, the committee decided that the celebration would be canceled in the year of the plague.

But the people were strong and wise, and so they pondered. And someone suggested to create an enormous artificial island, which everyone could enter …

Sometime on the morning of Day 4, with the core orga-jitsi’s clock showing hour 48, we sat together for the handover. We pondered, mused, nerded, and asked what we could write to conclude.

“In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.”
— Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

At the end of this event, after 96 hours of remote Chaos Experience, we ourselves cannot put …
