the workshop was initiated by a Berlin group called "Ways out of
capitalism", which I am part of. We had a really interesting presentation
and workshop this weekend. We learned a lot about italian "autonomia"
movement of the 60/70ies, accompanied and theoretically driven by Toni
Negri (one of the Empire's authors). The theory of "operaism" (correct
translation?) is an important source of the Empire book. A second part
was given by Benni Bärmann, who asked the question, why free software
does not occur in the Empire-book, although it is a really important
example of a multitude's movement, which is aware of its constitutive
power. Sorry, I cannot express it in english very well, I only read the
(ugly) german translation of Empire-book. Does this say anthing to you?
Do you have similar discussions?

Uli Weiss's workshop relating to Free softwre and Empire caught my eye.
Is there any chance a german speaker, or someone familar with the
discussions that have already taken place, could write a short summary
on where this has gone so far?
This is a subject that is certainly of interest to Jamie and I, and it
would be nice to arrive in Berlin on the same page, rather tha having
to reinvent the wheel and exchange knowing looks!
