"In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes" proposed Andy Warhol. His version was The Factory, happenings and experimental film. Poet Gill Scott Heron announced "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised." Some of it is, and some of it is not. Calarts media theorist Gene Youngblood foretold the power of the Internet in cultural evolution with "Expanded Cinema" & "Mass Media and the Future of Desire."
Open Signal comprehends all those ideas.
Open Signal is the reborn, reenergized and rebranded Portland Cable Access.
Open Signal is a video studio, sound studio, library. It has training, youth to adults, and programs for schools. It broadcasts its own program channels.
