Goals for this week
Concept and design of a publication or a series of publications, that has the characteristics of deleting/destroying itself at some point (optimally the date of the end presentation, Friday February 12th :-)

- We are with a big group so there will be times you have to wait for everyone to proceed. Please take that time to try continue with the next steps, try out new iterations of scripts or to help others.
- Along with the technical instructions try and think about a final project you want to create and present Friday.
- Let's try and start on time and together, at 10:00.
- Lunch: 13:00, prepared every day by another group of 3-4 volunteers. Let's keep it 2-3,-/pp
