Yami-Ichi

The Internet Yami-Ichi (Internet Black Market) is a flea market which deals "Internet-ish" things, face-to-face, in actual space. Both flea markets and the Internet are fanatical and chaotic mixes of the amazing and useless. In the Internet Yami-Ichi both the wills and desires which brought us to create the Internet, and the wills and desires we picked up once we got there, are salvaged to be shared in a social space.
El Internet Yami-Ichi es un mercadillo de "cosas del internet". Es gratis, divertido, sin censura y con cerveza. En vivo, gratis y directamente de los callejones oscuros de la red: buceadores de las redes, roedores de fibra óptica, especuladores radicales y otros traficantes post-digitales.
