The Web Jockey Protocol is a social protocol for performing customised cascading stylesheets (CSS) of a specified website to an audience within an agreed period of time. It takes the shape of a DJing live performance. By displaying the modifications real time, the audience-performer relationship can be a form of passing knowledge or requests.

  • duration: 2-3hours
  • number of participants: A group of webjockeys and an audience from 1 to infinite. Some participants need to be able to write CSS, others just need the excitement about learning CSS.
  • materials / tools: computer for the web jockey screen or projector for the audience (or their own device on which they installed the scratching extension), chairs or standing-up space in front of the jockey DJ style
