Call to Artists/Writers/Thinkers for upcoming Symposium: Smart, Sexy Healthy. 
At the Banff New Media Institute.

The Banff New Media Institute is looking for Artists/Writers/Theorists to 
participate in a discursively rich and provocative Think Tank this coming 
September entitled Smart, Sexy, Healthy (see description below). Cultural 
producers who engage with the technological visioning of other spaces, places, 
and experiences are asked to contribute to this event, and be a part of the six 
year legacy of high wire networking and sublime nature that comprises the Banff 
New Media Institute.

Smart, Sexy and Healthy
September 6 - 8, 2001
Tuition: $300

How can we use technology to imagine another's experience? This think tank 
brings together able bodied and disabled designers, technology users, 
theorists, researchers, health care practitioners, and technology developers, 
to explore the capabilities of networked and immersive technologies to educate, 
heal, and redefine sensory perception and experience. How can the new 
possibilities for visualization provided by computer technologies make us more 
aware of each other's challenges and physical experiences? What are the limits 
of networks and technologies in diagnosis and application? Issues include 
Diagnostics and Technologies; Extended Perceptions; Integration, Cultural 
Differences and Health in Networked Contexts. One case study will include the 
navigation of The Banff Centre campus.
If you have special needs, please let us know and we will do our best to 
accommodate you.

If you are interested in participating in the event or would like to find out

Maps appear in many guises and forms, conveying various messages and
agendas. Cartography has always played a role in the representation of
spatial and political reality. Thus besides being a navigational aid, a map
is also an ideological tool.

In a society where our worldview is continuously changing due to rapid
technological developments and the effects of globalisation, the static
maps of yore, which feign the semblance of stability and immutability, are
outmoded. New technologies provide us with 3D maps, dynamic maps with
automatic update functions, animated and interactive maps which chart
variable processes and complex relations.

The digitalisation of cartography has had to its effect that the
visualisations of data are far from dry snapshots of reality. Maps are
increasingly playing a more directive role in the representation, but also
in the active shaping of reality. Moreover, maps plot their own realities
and cross the lines between information carrying and information shaping.

Reality is in the eye of the map maker? Wiretap 7.08 maps out the blanks
with pressing critical questions.

Work-in-progress exhibition:
‘In Transit’  Michael Pinsky
Pinsky creates interactive maps that alter conventional perceptions of
urban time and space. Noting the resultant travel times between urban
locations as a form of plotting device, the maps are then constructed to
show points in time rather than space. They re-organise the city's form,
and our understanding of it, in terms of a temporal as well as geographic

‘Genetics of the Wild City’  STEALTH Group
In contradistinction with static mapping techniques ‘Genetics of the Wild
City’ presents the development of a set of tools and a specific methodology
for the dynamic mapping and visualisation of complex urban processes and
transformations. This project started from the reality of Belgrade, the 2
million inhabitants’ capital of Yugoslavia  a city that experienced the
abrupt change from a centrally conducted to an atomised growth, steered by
individual needs. The project draws its metaphors and parallels from
studies of genetics and computer viruses.

‘Safetown Project’ - Laurent Neyssensas & Frédéric Degouzon
The ‘Safetown’ project is a photographic inquiry in urban space, based on
the colour reduction process of palettes used in computer graphics.
Neyssensas’ and Degouzon’s approach consists of applying the technique of
palettes to urban tissue in order to draw a general and systematic vision
of the whole entity, which is designed for interactive electronic broadcast.

	The first Art Servers Unlimited was organized by Manu Luksch &
Armin Medosch on the summer weekend of 1998, in London's NewMediaCentre,
Backspace and ICA, as a forum in which over 50 participants from
European countries gathered to analyze models, compare histories and
agendas, and exchange experience of what were loosely named "art servers".
ASU was a bottom-up set of initiatives to support the blend of
creative/experimental/artistic/ critical use of the net  which included
providing internet access, bursaries, workspace, meeting, presentation.

	In the context of the recent trend towards unconditional
commercialization of croatian net space (same applies for the whole
region), it has become increasingly important to organize ASU2 meeting in
Croatia at the present moment to help span some of the new and alternative
ideas on production and conceptualisation of cyber buzz.
By organising event in Labin we are providing good access to regional
participants and avoiding short form meeting which is conditioned by high
organising costs in EU countries. The fact of being 4Km from beach of
Adriatic see should be regarded as accidental ;)

	A number of projects (net.radio, web portals, clubs, media
labs...) whose work is beneficial to the emergence and development of
internet specific structures, forms of organization, hybrid-hyper-media
and netwok distributed productions are invited to present discuss and
reflect on their work. ASU2 is planned as a meeting of projects from the
most active fields of independent non-profit web production:
	.art - net.art,
	.alt - alternative technologies &
	.act - autonomous media.
we try to further connect this three areas and enhance their activity in
different ways by merging the most interesting and relevant content, with
new technology and active audience participation.

	ASU2 is a meeting, workshop and festival bringing together
pioneers of independent media/media-art projects, newly emergent media
spaces/labs, and autonomous art servers which provide services/tools to
the cultural sector. It is a collaborative union of what were initially
conceived as two independent projects,
Art Servers Unlimited and Art Spaces Unlimited.

	The goal of Art Spaces Unlimited is to develop ad hoc associations
that will lead to sustainable networks of communication in the future:
collaborations on organizing joint events, group applications for funding
and sharing of resources, establishing information lists and sites. Many
independent art spaces in East-Central Europe, including technologically
sophisticated media labs, still rely on the monopoly of commercial net
space and technologies for disseminating material and for facilitating
	The idea to combine the Art Servers Unlimited and Art Spaces
Unlimited, sprang from the current need to extend the activities of
self-organized art spaces toward developing new autonomous servers, and
simultaneously, from the desire to provide existing art servers with links
to local initiatives that could provide content as well as the possibility
to collaborate by hosting events.

	The first Art Servers Unlimited was a meeting of a technologically
sophisticated but closed culture of art servers. ASU2 is extended to those
who are not already "experts" in order to expand the field beyond its
present boundaries. The goal is to begin building a comprehensive
infrastructure necessary for an autonomous culture to possesses its own
spaces, networks, and technologies and to control its own destiny. By
doing this we are helping laverage cultural production of EU and Eeastern
Europe, in the area of most dynamic cultural production (new technologies
and media arts).

	From its inception, ASU2 has assumed the form of a open
collaborative work; the organization of the structure and content of ASU2
is being discussed and planned on an email list, with suggestions for
program and scheduale made by all participants.

Objectives and Goals :
- - to present projects, initiatives, institutions and individuals who
creatively use new technologies for media production, content distribution
and archiving, while reflecting on strategies.
- - to start training programms in cultural management, organization, and
funding for newly established NGO's, and to extend the technical
capabilities of media centers through workshops on web streaming
technologies, media production, distribution and archiving strategies,
content managment systems, and community based publishing.
- - to establish a partnership with educational institutions for both
technology and disemination of knowledge/skills/sensibility for
non-commercial cultural production.
- - to establish permanent exchange of practical skills, knowledge,
experiences in wider European context through system of annual meetings,
workshops, dedicated webservers with relevant resources, and the
production of training materials (readers & video material);
- - to establish network of non-commercial content providers in fields of
art, alternative technology and autonomus media that would produce and
distribute content, share resources and knowledge while expanding it's
reach to wider audience. Establishing of such international body would
help influence international(EU) policies in ICT and new media culture;
- - to connect existing initiatives in this field from other regions of
Europe (ECB, NICE, Interfund...) with local initiatives.

sights and sounds from a Baffin Island outpost camp
August 2001

Hundreds of kilometres, and a day-long boat ride across the Arctic Ocean
from the nearest phone or power lines, a group of Inuit and non-Inuit
inhabitants of a remote outpost camp on Canada¹s Baffin Island are sending
daily audio and video dispatches to the rest of the world via the Internet,
thanks to cutting-edge satellite phone and mobile computing technologies.

LIVE FROM THE TUNDRA gives internauts around the world a remarkable glimpse
into the "life on the land" that Inuit elders Vivi and Enuki Kunuk have
pursued all of their lives. Celebrating this traditional Inuit lifestyle
under the glorious arctic sun, the trilingual website (English, French,
Inuktitut) offers fresh daily content over a five-day period comprised of a
journal, photos, video and audio clips. Site visitors can also interact with
participants at the outpost camp via a chat forum.

Judge Rules Barbie Parody is Free Speech - Reuters
A federal judge has ruled that 42-year-old Barbie has the right to pose
nude in martini glasses and blenders. Judge Ronald Lew ruled that the free
speech rights of Utah artist Tom Forsythe -- who was sued by Mattel two
years ago after he parodied Barbie dolls in a series of photographs meant
to focus on impossible beauty myths -- outweigh the company’s trademarks
and intellectual property rights. Legal experts called the ruling a blow
to Mattel and other companies that sue artists who attempt to use their
products for creative expression. Tom Forsythe's Web Site:

Subject: [Summary] Hubert Dreyfus's *ON THE INTERNET* --by Arun Tripathi 


Recently Professor Hubert Dreyfus has written a book --entitled as On the
Internet: Thinking in Action, which is published by Routledge Press, 2001
[Paperback - 136 pages (March 2001)  Routledge; ISBN: 0415228077 ;
Dimensions (in inches): 0.44 x 7.79 x 5.08]

The Internet Book is available through the following websites..



Short Bio of Author:
- ---------------------

Hubert Dreyfus presently an Emeritus Professor at University of
California, Berkeley, USA. His main interests are Phenomenology,
Existentialism, Philosophy of Psychology, Philosophy of Literature, and
philosophical implications of Artificial Intelligence. During the spawn of
his brilliant academic career, Professor Dreyfus has accomplished many
good objectives and built the path of knowledge and wisdom.  In true
words, he is known to be the Messenger of Humanities. Perceiving his works
and researches in different disciplines of Science and Philosophy in my
humble opinion, he truly fits in the words of Vince Lombardi, The quality
of a persons is life is in direct proportion to their commitment to
excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor. Professor
Dreyfus has also accomplished his PhD in early 60s. In 1963 at Harvard
University he wrote his PhD thesis on the topic Husserl's Phenomenology of
Perception: From Transcendental to Existential Phenomenology under the
supervision of famous Husserlian Dagfinn Follesdal.

Summary by Arun Kumar Tripathi
On the Internet: Thinking in Action, Routledge Press, 2001
Hubert Dreyfus ON THE INTERNET:The attraction and dangers of Internet

[Thinking in Action is a major new series that takes philosophy to its
publica new challenge.]

[The book also discussed in short the Nietzsches amazing claim of Overman

In short:
- ----------
Leaving the body behind would fulfil the dream of Plato, who held that the
body was the tomb of the soul and followed Socrates in claiming that it
should be a human beings highest goal to die to his body and become a pure
mind. But it is astonishing fact, that the Extropians claim to be
following Nietzsche, not Plato, when they say we should transcend our
humanity. In fact, Nietzsches view of the body is in the very book about
the overman the Extropians love to quote (discussed in details).

Professor Hubert Dreyfus in the book has unveiled the hidden secrets thru
the eyes of a philosopher, by applying and exploring Kierkegaardian views
by translating The Present Age to the Net.

(Lewis Perelman, president of Kanbrain Institute, is a rare blend of
scholar, visionary, and pragmatist. An outspoken critic of both education
and reform, Perelman is convinced that education as we know it is obsolete
and irrelevant in today's world and workplace. Perelman is the executive
editor of Knowledge Inc., and director of Project Learning 2001, a study
of restructuring education and training sponsored by 12 U.S. corporations
and foundations concerned with finding ways to meet conditions listed in
Workforce 2000. Perelman's first book, The Global Mind (Mason/Charter,
1976), named one of the year's best scientific-technical books by Library
Journal, anticipated the impact of the global Internet and World Wide Web.
He is the author of the best-selling School's Out: Hyperlearning, the New
Technology, and the End of Education (Avon Books, 1993), based in part on
his work as a senior research fellow of the Hudson Institute, where he
served from 1989 to 1992 and worked on the Workforce 2000 Project
sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor. Perelman has written articles
for Business Week, Forbes, Wired, and The Wall Street Journal.)

According to Lewis Perelman or his hypothesis:
The reality is that a new generation of technology has blown the social
role of learning completely inside out:

# Learning used to be a distinctly human process.  Now learning is a
transhuman process people share with increasingly powerful artificial
networks and brains.  Even today, expert systems and neural networks are
being trained by human knowledge engineers; the machines automated
expertise in turn is providing just-in-time learning for car mechanics,
power plant operators, and a growing legion of other workers.

# Learning was an activity thought to be confined to the box of a school
classroom.  Now learning permeates every form of social activity  work,
entertainment, home life  outside of school.  For what piano lessons would
cost, you now can buy an electronic piano that will teach you to play
it.  Only a quarter of American adults know how to program a VCR; a new
model will teach you how in any of six languages.  The fastest growing
cable TV networks  The Discovery Channel and The Learning Channel  are
devoted to learning.  Of the more than sixty million Americans who learned
how to use personal computers since 1980, most learned from vendors,
books, other users, and the computers themselves, not in schools. 

# Learning was presented as the result of instruction: a linear,
hierarchical process in which an expert teacher would pour knowledge into
the empty head of an obedient student.  With knowledge doubling every year
or so, expertise now has a shelf life measured in days; everyone must be
both learner and teacher; and the sheer challenge of learning can be
managed only through a globe-girdling network that links all minds and all

# Learning or education was a task of childhood in preparation for
entering adult life and work.  Now learning is literally the work of the
majority of U.S. jobs and will be what virtually all adults whether
employed, unemployed, or on welfare will do for a living by the early
years of the twenty-first century.

I call this new wave of technology hyperlearning, or just HL for short.  
It is not a single device or process, but a universe of new technologies
that both possess and enhance intelligence.  The hyper in hyperlearning
refers not merely to the extraordinary speed and scope of new information
technology, but to an unprecedented degree of connectedness of knowledge,
experience, media, and brains both human and non-human.  The learning in
HL refers most literally to the transformation of knowledge and behavior
through experience what learning means in this context goes as far beyond
mere education or training as the space shuttle goes beyond the dugout

These facets of the hyperlearning revolution are not Star Trek projections
but are events happening now.  We have the technology today to enable
virtually anyone who is not severely handicapped to learn anything, at a
grade A level, anywhere, anytime.

Albert Einstein said that the atomic bomb changed everything but our
thinking.  Hyperlearning is going to change everything and our thinking.

- -Lewis J. Perelman, School's Out: Hyperlearning, the New Technology, and
the End of Education (Avon Books, 1993)- [Chapter 1: Prolog: Learning 2100
and Chapter 2: Hyperlearning: A Technological Revolution]

The Internet Book raises the following questions:
Can we leave our vulnerable bodies while preserving relevance, learning,
reality, and meaning? The latest book of Hubert Dreyfus will examine in
complete details the various perspectives of the Net through the eyes of a
Philosopher the attraction of life on the Internet as a way of achieving
Platos dream of overcoming space and time as well as bodily finitude (as
Plato said Learning takes place independent of Time and Space in Mind).
Drawing on philosophers such as Soren Kierkegaard, Friedrich Nietzsche,
and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Hubert Dreyfus discussed and seriously
criticised the Net. In his criticism, he explained that, in spite of its
attraction, the more one lives ones life through the Net the more loses a
sense of what is relevant, and so faces the problem of finding the
information one is seeking. Also, in spite of economic attraction of
distance learning, such learning by substituting telepresence for real
presence (how much presence is delivered by the telepresence?), leaves no
place for risk-taking and apprenticeship which plays a crucial role in all
types of skill acquisition. Furthermore, without a sense of bodily
vulnerability, one looses a sense of reality of the physical world and
ones sense that one can trust other people. Finally, he discussed while
the anonymity of the Net makes possible experimentation, the overall
effect of the NET is to undermine commitment (what Kierkegaard spelled out
in The Present Age) thus to deprive life of any serious meaning.

The book is divided into four chapters:

Chapter 1. Hyperlinks In this chapter The hype about hyper-links Professor
Dreyfus discussed the hope for intelligent information retrieval and the
failure of AI. He raised one good question, how the actual shape and
movement of our bodies plays a crucial role in grounding meaning so that
loss of embodiment leads to loss of relevance.

Chapter 2. Distance-Learning In this chapter, How far is Distance Learning
from Education? Hubert Dreyfus discussed the importance of mattering and
attunement for teaching and learning skills and phenomenology of skill
acquisition. Apprenticeship and the need for imitation. Without
involvement and presence he said we cannot acquire skills.

Chapter 3. Telepresence The chapter, Disembodied Telepresence and the
remoteness of the Real will let us know about the body as source of our
presence of causal embedding and attunement to mood. Hubert Dreyfus has
raised a question, how loss of background coping and attunement leads to
loss of sense of reality of people and things. (I see something like you,
but I dont see you and I hear something like you, but I dont hear you)

Chapter 4. Nihilism The last chapter (most important), Nihilism on the
Information Highway: Anonymity vs. commitment in the Present Age discussed
in details about the meaning, requires commitment and real commitment
requires real risks. The anonymity and safety of virtual commitments
on-line, leads to loss of meaning. In this chapter, Prof. Dreyfus
translated the Soren Kierkegaardian view of The Present Age to the Net. He
translated the idea of The Press to the Net. As he elsewhere writes:

In The Present Age (1846) Soren Kierkegaard condemns The Press for
contributing to the nihilism (terms coined by Nietzsche) of his age by
cultivating risk-free anonymity and idle curiosity and thereby levelling
all meaningful differences. He would surely have denounced the world wide
web for the same reasons.

Professor Dreyfus in the fourth chapter, has spelled out Kierkegaards
objections by considering how the web promotes the nihilism of
Kierkegaards two nihilistic spheres of existence and repels the third
non-nihilistic sphere.
Professor Dreyfus translated Kierkegaard's account of the dangers and
opportunities of what Kierkegaard called the Press into a critique of the
Internet so as to raise the question: what contribution -- for good or ill
- -- can the World Wide Web, with its ability to deliver vast amounts of
information to users all over the world, make to educators trying to pass
on knowledge and to develop skills and wisdom in their students?  He has
then elaborated Kierkegaard's three-stage answer to the problem of lack of
involvement posed by the Press -- Kierkegaard claim that to have a
meaningful life the learner must pass through the aesthetic, the ethical
and the religious spheres of existence -- to suggest that only the first
two stages -- the aesthetic and the ethical -- can be implemented with
Information Technology and Net, while the final stage, which alone makes
meaningful learning possible, is undermined rather than supported by the
tendencies of the desituated and anonymous Net. All the commitments on the
Net are the Virtual commitments, as Hubert Dreyfus further explained:
Kierkegaard would surely argue that, while the Internet allows
unconditional commitments, it does not support them. Far from encouraging
them, it tends to turn all of life into a risk free game. So, in the end,
although it does not prohibit such commitments, it does inhibit them. Like
a simulator it manages to capture everything but the risk. Our
imaginations can be drawn in, as they are in playing games and watching
movies. And no doubt game simulations sharpen our responses for non-game
situations. But so far as games work by capturing our imaginations, they
will fail to give us serious commitments. We read dense texts or practice
a difficult piece of music day after day because they matter greatly to
us. But we are unlikely to stay with either for long when we have only an
imaginary ultimate commitment. Imagined commitments hold when our
imaginations are captivated by the simulations before our ears and eyes.
And that is what computer games and the Net offer us. The temptation is to
live in a world of stimulating images and simulated commitment and thus to
lead a simulated life. The test as to whether one had acquired an
unconditional commitment would come if one had the incentive and courage
to transfer what one had learned to the real world. Then one would
confront what Kierkegaard called "the danger and the harsh judgment of
existence". And precisely the attraction of the Net would inhibit that
final plunge. Anyone using the net who was led to risk his or her real
identity in the real world would thus have to act against the grain of
what attracted them to the Net in the first place. If Kierkegaard is
right, and the cyber-world is to avoid despair, it will have to find a way
of canceling this risk-free attraction and thereby support and encourage
strong identities in the real world where risk of failure and
disappointment is inevitable. The fourth chapter of the book is important
for educators.

(The opposite of nihilism is a world in which there are what Soren
Kierkegaard calls qualitative distinctions distinctions of what is right
and wrong, good and bad, trivial and important)

(Nihil es in intellectua non prius fuerit in sensu, is the Latin Phrase
meaning Nothing is in the understanding that was not earlier in the
senses. Hence, the central doctrine of the empiricism of Gassendi, Locke,
and Mill. Nihilism is the complete rejection of the existence of human
knowledge and values or denial of the possibility of making any useful
distinctions among things.)

Hubert Dreyfus has used some of his phrases to write the Internet book (to
discuss the ideas of The Press)such as Well if Soren Kierkegaard had
thought about this he would have said.

In the book, Professor Dreyfus very intelligently used the claim We would
speculate on how a past thought project would be worked out in the present

In the above bookthe author tried to give answers in greater depth to the
questions, which is important in field of humanities and Philosophy that
why reach beyond ourselves and our humanity? Why seek to become
posthuman? Why not accept our human limits and renounce transcendence?

In my view, the book On the Internet discussed in greater depth the
important question How does the Dreyfuss Skill developmental model and his
non-representational learning relate to the Internet-facilitated

In his paper on the Internet and education, Hubert Dreyfus, drawing on
Kierkegaard's work on the Press, challenges the popular view of the
Internet as a global classroom in which anybody and everybody can
participate in a process of so called `hyperlearning.' As Kierkegaard said
of the Press, Dreyfus says of the Internet, that it would promote
risk-free anonymity and idle curiosity, both of which undermine
responsibility and commitment.  Dreyfus considers how the Net would
promote Kierkegaard's two nihilistic spheres of existence, the aesthetic
and the ethical, while repelling the religious sphere.

In the aesthetic sphere, the aesthete avoids commitments and lives in the
categories of the interesting and the boring and wants to see as many
interesting sights (sites) as possible.  In the ethical sphere we would
reach a `despair of possibility' brought on by the ease of making and
unmaking commitments on the Net.  Only in the religious sphere is nihilism
overcome by making a risky, unconditional commitment.  Dreyfus concludes
that only by working closely with students in a shared situation in the
real world can teachers with strong identities, ready to take risks to
preserve their commitments, pass on their passion and skill to their
students.  In this shared context students can turn information into
knowledge and practical wisdom.

In the article what can we expect from the technology -the author Stefano
Russo expressed the concerns about how we teach responsibility in the use
of information technology when we pay little attention to computing
ethics?  There is also the danger of substituting virtual contact for
human interaction, through excessive Internet surfing, for example , or to
mistake the distorted use of technology portrayed in movies and television
as acceptable. Our young generations are particularly vulnerable to this,
and our guidance can help combat this influence. Some say that these
issues are much less important than the technology itself, but I believe
it is critical to educate about the good principles and rules associated
with being a member of the information society.

This work is a clear discussion of the promises of the Internet. Can it
really bring humanity to a new level of community and democracy and solve
the problems of mass education? Hubert Dreyfus, a writer on philosophy and
technology, brings a philosopher's eye to bear on an issue that affects us
all. Drawing on a diverse array of thinkers including Descartes and
Kierkegaard, Dreyfus draws parallels between the Internet and the birth of
a media-obsessed public in the 18th century and the Enlightenment quest
for a universal, abstract knowledge. He shows how the Internet ignores
essential human capacities such as trust, moods, risk, shared local
concerns and commitment. He also uses compelling examples from the
experience of teaching to show what "interactive" education leaves out.

In the article As Educators Rush to Embrace, a Coterie of Skeptics Seeks
to Be Heard Hubert L. Dreyfus said relying on the Internet would actually
discourage the passionate commitment that he saw at the heart of advanced
learning in any field. The risk-free anonymity of the Internet, he said,
makes it a good medium for slander, innuendo, endless gossip, and
ultimately, boredom. Without some way of telling the relevant from the
irrelevant and the significant from the insignificant, everything becomes
equally interesting and equally boring. He later argued, The nihilistic
pull of the new network culture doesnt prohibit such personal commitment
but does inhibit.

I would like to hear your feedback and criticism of my review of
Prof. Dreyfus's Internet book. Thanks in advance.

Sincerely yours
