Culture of the Information Age (extra)

The conference started today. It is a small group of scientists (see photograph left). The conference has been organised by Györgyi Rétfalvi (see photograph left), a communication specialist at Kodolányi János University College; in the back Milverton Wallace, the chairman of the conference.

Around the conference hall there are many statues at which force you to smile.

The harbour and the lakeside of the Balaton lake.

Jurate Vazgauskaite from Lithania closed the first conference day with her digital installation. She showed an ad random image and sound generator.

In the evening we went to a high point in the area of the Balaton lake (photograph left). After the climb we were treated to wine tasting at the cellar at the Chateau St. Christophe winery, set up by two brothers. During the wine tasting we were offerd a plateau with Hungarian cheese and crudities.
