What's it all about
Welcome to Electric December 2000 - a selection box of virtual presents and cards to celebrate creativity in Bristol.
It works like a traditional advent calendar, open it day-by-day to reveal 24 virtual presents from some of Bristol's finest creative talents - there's games, animation, video, short films, poetry, prose and visual art.
Right from day one there are also 24 emailable greetings cards, of which you can send as many as you like with your own personal message - let your friends know where they can find the presents too. Open the calendar, click on a day and follow the instructions.
Each card acts as a preview of a present. Click the box on the card to open the present. But don't forget your presents can only be opened on or after the numbered day of December.
From the card you can also open a 'Meet the Makers' page which tells you about that day's contributors and has links to related sites.
Electric December is also on show at Watershed on Bristol's Harbourside, as a part of the useIT exhibition, 11am to 7pm from 21 November through to 4 February 2001 - free admission. useIT profiles new creative content for the web, digital media research projects and an interactive TV prototype. There are linked events, seminars and showreels, see useIT on www.bctn.net for details.
