sam smiley here, hailing from the front lines of Night Visions, a four day festival of art, technology and moving image at 1803 Mass Ave, Porter Square in Cambridge in a huge white church. Organized by Karen Frostig and me, it is currently going on and will culminate in a number of really great events this Saturday May 5 and it's free.
