we were very happy to have mister GION MATHIAS CAVELTY as our guest:
digging in the archive of his hilarious literaturshow was inspiring
- and we hope we completely transferred the etoy VIRUS in his system:

etoy.SHARE transactions update

Dear shareholders,

in a year of crisis, etoy is happy to report that you, our community, heavily contribute to our venture and the etoy.SHARE, our means of sharing risk, gains in popularity and impact.

In a time when other large public Swiss firms struggle with internal support, etoy.AGENTS invest heavily in etoy.SHARES. Management and board members of Swiss Life, Credit Suisse, Zurich Insurance, and Vontobel invested ZERO in additional shares during 2009, they only sold own stock. Non-executive board members of Swiss Life sold 68m CHF worth of their shares in the second half of 2009, while during the same period Credit Suisse executives sold shares of their company for more than 51m CHF (source: NZZ am Sonntag Jan 10, 2010).

etoy.AGENTS and members of management injected in excess of 40,000 USD in new liquidity in 2009 and renewed debt obligations. We're reporting detailed financial figures for 2009 by May 2010.

During the last two months, etoy issued 3180 share units in EYB certificates that could be distributed to agents and new shareholders. We're currently exhibiting new EYB certificates in our tank plant in Zurich Binz and welcome visitors (during evening hours upon prior notice).

As of today, the etoy.VENTURE ASSOCIATION raises the price for one share unit to 20 USD for new investors. Stay tuned for analyst reports on etoy for the upcoming show in San Sebastian, Spain.


SARCOPHAGUS at ARS Electronica 09

For ARS Electronica 2009 the GATE to ETERNITY opens
its virtual locks and starts to accept TEST PILOT DATA
(digital traces, info dust, ascii noise etc. of SEPP KEISER
and TIMOTHY LEARY) to be released by the public:
friends and family, archivists, fans and YOU!

Submitted data can be uploaded directly into the PILOTS'
ARCANUM CAPSULE from where it is released from control
forever and spread by the ANGEL APPLICATION.

The SARCOPHAGUS took off from a holy mountain ridge
in central Switzerland on Aug 31, went straight for the GATE,
and was rejected due to the five tons of steel attached to its data.

Damned to travel earth until it falls apart, the SARCOPHAGUS
then landed on the rooftop of the Ars Electronica Center in Linz,
Austria. Never too close to the ground but denied access to the
GATE, it took refuge from farmers, Swiss hillbillies and straying
bankers to celebrate the ARS Electronica Festival 2009 with the
global art crowd in Linz. Visit etoy.AGENTS and ANGELS for the
exhibition this Thursday through Tuesday!

The Opening: Thursday Sept 3, 10AM
Ars Electronica Center upper deck: 48°18'36.7"N 14°17'6.8"E

CEOs are having a hard time these days

where ever managers like me show up people start to balme us, spit in our faces or even hit us. without knowing what kind of corporation we belong to.

for the last three days i was in liverpool - the city of THE BEATLES - for a conference and book release.

but IMAGINE -> there was nothing than bood, drama and decay. and a little bit of fun ;-)

first norman m. klein talked about forgetting, loss and lies all the time and then 4 stunning women from the FACT team took me to this strange club where everybody was totally into MISSION ETERNITY: skulls, bones and bleeding skin every where. 

after 3 or 4 hours of observing a strange crowd i started to love it and danced with these cool ladies: i really liked the physical side of this absurd experience: sweat, strange hormones, real passion, alcohol, drugs, sweat, sweat, music etc.

yes i loved it. the music was really good. and the girls i talked to were really stunning (because they were all smart and therefore more than sexy)

so all the blood in my face was worth it: men like me have to fight to have fun.

thanks laura, gaby, kate and wonderful XY for this clubbing night in liverpool.

it was cool to hang out with you!




Swiss Life at the etoy.IMPLANTAT

Today a group of people from Swiss Life visited the etoy.IMPLANTAT for drinks and a tour through the etoy.UNIVERSE. Swiss Life owns the land and offers space for etoy's headquarter tanks to work and meet and dream in a part of the city that resembles a park, only more ferocious and lush.

etoy invades ARCO 08 Madrid! After a total failure to convince any art dealer to trade art with etoy.SHARES in 2004, we're back.

With the MISSION ETERNITY SARCOPHAGUS, the art fair ARCO in Madrid receives an installation at its gates that connects the living art world with the dead.

From an economic perspective, etoy invades a contemporary art market driven more than ever by shiny names, fat parties, and cynical capitalism. By offering the etoy.SHARE we invite direct and unmediated participation in art production. More obvious than four years ago, MISSION ETERNITY provides the radical backdrop for etoy's call for risk sharing. Daring art collectors and investors can share the risks of art production, without middlemen: just down-to-earth investments in an art company that works out a new way to deal with memory (conservation/loss), time (future/present/past) and death.

If you wish to participate in radical art, share the risks of creating ground-breaking, jaw-dropping innovation: etoy is your investment opportunity. If you're sick of plunging banking stocks, flawed compensation schemes, and abstract blah about fine arts: etoy goes where traditional artists, companies and individuals cannot afford or risk to go.
Join us now!

Madrid ARCO 08, Feb 13 - 18, 2008
How to get there: open airline seats from Zurich start at 153 euro / from Berlin at 205 euro / from Paris at 111 euro
Where to stay: etoy.AGENTS reside at the Tryp Menfis Hotel, Mardid
