Dutch time lost sgnificance

In the afternoon several workshops took place about how to make an independent computer network, about viruses and viral networks, about ecological implications of the computer industry, about artificial intelligence and the way computers may change our way of thinking. In the evening of that first day the film 'Brazil' was shown, and then Paradiso closed, while hackers in the small auditorium wanted to continue to 'hack'. As Rop Gonggrijp remarked in his report "When Paradiso closed, hackers were upset because they were just getting into it. The normal day rhythms of the GHP audience (with or without jetlag) were so diverse and the connections with the rest of the 'global village' had become so close, that Dutch local time seemed to lose its significance." (Gonggrijp 1989, 26).
