Dear Internet people of Belgium & Europe,
Greetings. We are a secret society from Japan, the country that brought you manga and 2channel. We are known as I.D. Password, or “I-pass” for short. We were founded “over 100 years ago” to make the Internet reign in the actual world. http://idpw.org/
We need your help. With the collaboration of iMAL, we will stage on our information age-ready flea market, the “Internet Yami-ichi (Internet Black Market),” at Ateliers des Tanneurs, Brussels (Belgium) on Sunday 28 September.
We are so excited!
However! The Internet Yami-ichi won’t work without the participation and interaction of a lot of people who have loved and hated the Internet and yet still love it. So we would very much appreciate your participation.
The Internet Yami-ichi has only one rule.
“Sell things related to the Internet face to face.”
Now you might be thinking…
“That sounds interesting!” (Thank you.)
“What the hell are they talking about?” (We’re sorry.)
So we’ve put together more detailed information about the Internet Yami-ichi. We would appreciate it if you could take a look.
Are you interested in a booth?
(You can make changes later, such as things you want to sell, so sign up now!)
If you have any questions, please send us a note.
The Internet Yami-ichi is a flea market where people sell Internet-ish things face to face. At the previous events in Tokyo and Berlin, a variety of things have been sold including rejected iOS apps, a research paper in a digital file format, collections of links, and the right to be hugged by an Internet idol. It’s up to you how you interpret “Internet-related things.”
Below are rough guidelines that are subject to change
- Please do not sell things that may harm visitors or other participants. The selling of illegal items is prohibited.
- Let’s make it a fun, happy event.
- The event will be held in a rented building, so please do not vandalize or make things dirty. Also, please avoid things that may cause trouble for other people, such as things that have a strong smell.
- You do not need to pay any booth charges or commissions.
- You are free to set the price for whatever you sell.
- The event organizer will not take responsibility for problems that individual participants may have. Please take care of your problems on your own.
- Please bring your own small change for your own customers.
- You can use services such as Square for your transactions.
- Please take all your garbage home with you.
- Please set up and take down your booth on the day of the event (start at 11:00).
- If we have more applicants than the space can hold, participants may be selected by lottery.
Date: Sunday, September 28, 2014, 11:00 - 20:00
Closing Performance by Exonemo at 20:30!
So. Are you interested in opening your booth?
Please join us in having the Internet Yami-ichi in a way that’s truly unique to Brussels!
