About the alpha 3.8:
The project attempts to host the tsunamii.net website on webservers in a round the world journey. tsunamii.net engages in the process of negotiating with the different local Internet Service Providers and sometimes ISPs/Telcos of the respective governments, to host their website. This web journey started from Singapore (31st March 2003) and will ‘hop’ around the world and return to Singapore in the period of one year.
In addition to translocating of the tsunamii.net website, tsunamii.net will also build an archive which includes the documentation on the entire process for this project as well as relevant information about the Internet landscape of the countries which the website has "visited". At the end of this web journey, tsunamii.net will present the alpha 3.8:
archive in an exhibtion.
alpha 3.8 is part of tsunamii.net’s "alpha series".
