GeneralHaving been involved in the early days of the multi-media experiment on the web in my days with London's pioneering Global Cafe (internet cafe 1996-2002) - which for me was an extension of previous activities at Theatro Technis' "Cafe Theatre" which provided a platform for creative people across all the fields of artistic endeavour to showcase their work -- the very process of creativity is what is of interest to me.

Voyage of the Kyrenia Liberty VideosCyprus joined the Euro on 1st January 2008, with 3 of the newly released coins featuring an image of the "Kyrenia Ship". To commemorate this event I have uploaded a 47 video clip playlist to my youtube account, featuring the voyage of the "Kyrenia Liberty" (a replica of the Kyrenia ship) which was commissioned to sail with gifts for host city, Athens, of the Olympic Games in 2004, collecting gifts from each of the many Greek islands it visited en route from Cyprus to Piraeus. Glad to see that President Christofias, elected President of the Republic of Cyprus in February 2008 has chosen representations of the "Kyrenia Ship" as his chosen gift to dignitaries who visit him. View the descriptions, and click on links at the YouTube playlist or click helow:

Being a Cypriot whose family was among the 200,000 refugees created following Turkey's invasion of the island in 1974, the subject of how the world continues to acquiesce in Turkey's continuing occupation of almost half our island is a continuing major concern.
