68. Jodi Rose Germany / Australian Bridgeland / Transcultures http://www.bridgeland.be, http://www.transcultures.be,
Jodi Rose is a Berlin-based artist, writer and creator of Singing Bridges, an urban sonic sculpture using the cables of bridges as musical instruments on a global scale. Originally from Australia, Rose has traversed the globe from Helsinki to the Mekong Delta, New York to Lisbon in an endless quest for bridge music. Made with field-recordings, on-site interventions and improvisations, her fascination with sonic bridges has led to diverse collaborations with artists and works exhibited, broadcast and published in Australia, Scandinavia, UK, Asia, Europe and America. Rose explores the philosophical and musical aspects of cable vibrations through global transmissions and installations; is developing a musical interface for model bridge instruments; hosting on-site sonic interventions, and linking bridges all over the world through new meta-nation Bridgeland (every bridge everywhere) and the Global Bridge Symphony. Pixelache is still her favourite festival and she is very excited to be returning - looking forward to sparks ideas connecting flow. Singing Bridges: http://www.singingbridges.net

74. Juergen Neumann Germany freifunk.net http://freifunk.net http://openspectrum.eu
Juergen Neumann started working with information technology in 1984, and since then has been looking for ways to deploy ICT in useful ways for organizations and society. As a consultant for ICT strategy and implementation, he has worked for major German and international companies, as well as on many non-profit projects. Besides his professional engagement, in 2002 he co-founded http://www.freifunk.net, a non-profit campaign to spread knowledge and social networking about "free and open wireless networks” — a campaign globally regarded as one of the most successful grassroots community projects in this field. Then, frustrated from reflashing hundreds of wireless access points over the past years, in 2007 Neumann initiated the Open Hardware Initiative — an alliance of activists lobbying for open source hardware at the sidelines of both eastern and western hardware industries. In 2008, he co-organized the first Open Technology Summit in Taiwan. Besides his job as CEO of a private consultancy company, his recent activities include digging deeper into the possibilities of manufacturing open source(d) chip designs and lobbying for new and more open licensing models for the radio spectrum.

Nina Nordström on 24 vuotias dokumenttielokuvaohjaaja Helsingistä. Ennen elokuvaopintojaan hän teki pätkätöitä kokkina. Hänen viime projektissaan hän soluttautui kommuuniin pariksi viikoksi ja oppi sieltä käsin roskisdyykkaamaan. Hän teki samalla aiheesta dokumentin nimeltä “fregaani huuma tai elämäni vihreällä sohvalla”. Se näytettiin joulukuussa YLEn FST5:lla ja on ollut mukana erilaisissa ympäristöaiheisissa tapahtumissa, kuten Ympäristötoimintapäivillä Orivedellä. Nina innostui dyykkaamisesta toden teolla dokumenttia tehdessään ja on siitä lähtien elänyt fregaanin elämää. Hän on myös osallistunut aihetta käsitteleviin tapahtumiin, kuten Äiti, minulla on nälkä -näyttelyyn Sanomatalossa sekä puhunut kouluissa ja radiossa aiheesta.

Professori Sinikka Piippo on koulutukseltaan kasvitieteilijä. Hän on valmistunut filosofian maisteriksi vuonna 1981 ja lisensiaatiksi 1984, sekä väitellyt tohtoriksi 1986 Helsingin yliopistossa. Hän on toiminut Helsingin yliopiston luonnontieteellisen keskusmuseon kasvimuseon itiökasviosaston johtajana vuodesta 1995 lähtien. Piipon tutkimustyö on suurimmalta osin keskittynyt Kaakkois-Aasian, erityisesti Papua-Uuden-Guinean ja Kiinan, maksasammalten systematiikkaan ja kasvimaantieteeseen. Hän on julkaissut alalta lähes parisataa tieteellistä ja yleistajuista artikkelia. Jo varhain Sinikka Piipon mielenkiinto suuntautui myös lääke- ja yrttikasveihin, joiden käyttöä hän alkoi opettaa jo 1980-luvun loppupuolella. Matkat eri puolilla maailmaa kartuttivat omalta osaltaan tietämystä alalta ja synnyttivät monia artikkeleita kasvilääkinnästä. Piippo on opettanut luonnonkasvien hyötykäyttöä 1980-luvun lopulta alkaen ja kirjoittanut lukuisten artikkelien lisäksi kirjasarjan Luonnon lääkeyrtit 1–4, Rakkauden ja Mielen Kasvit (2006) ja Kasvien salaiset voimat (2009). Hänet on palkittu 2006 Suomen tietokirjailijoiden Tietokirjailijapalkinnolla.
