Venture (Brothers) Studies

January 14, 2013


Been wanting for awhile to do a content hackathon: basically an event that combines the usual dirty and wonderful multi-day-no-sleep-and-takeout-food binge of the hackathons you know and love but points those efforts towards producing some sort of publication at the end rather than some sort of technological thing.

It’s a model that’s been tried to some success in generating open textbooks, though, in theory there’s no limitation on what the end result could be. That seems to open the door to lever these events for punching out a bunch of neat one-off monographs and essay collections on a wide range of fun topics.

With all that in mind, I’m doing a sprint here in San Francisco with a few others from January 25-27 to write a collection of short pieces diving in and picking apart Adult Swim’s wonderful Hanna-Barbera-homage/monument-to-personal-failure The Venture Brothers. Thinking it’ll be a neat chance to bring together a fun (unprecedented?) collection of content around the show, and also an excuse to re-watch a bunch of old episodes. We’ll be doing a few screenings in advance of the weekend and open to anyone who wants to come along, so give a holler if you’re interested.

You can play at home too! Give a holler if you want to submit anything: imagining we’ll have people working along virtually that weekend, and we’ll go along and get those pieces into the overall collection that comes out at the end.
