Last week I went to Webstock, a web conference in Wellington with a cult reputation. There were a few stand out speakers for me but nobody inspired me more than Rives.
Scheduled last on the first day of the conference and billed as a poet who would riff on HTML I thought SNORE! Boy was I wrong – Rives was incredible and someone I could easily watch for three hours. You can watch him here doing a piece he did at the conference, and there’s also a bunch of performances listed here. This is his website.
