The moment nettime gets defineable in leadership/representative terms it will
stop being interesting for me.

I think that nettime is one of the few fora that survived plague of
corporisation and is somewhat reminiscent of the early days of Usenet, when,
thanks to pre-selection criteria ("have a computer") in the early days or
heroic moderation attempts that followed on, the space enabled civilised
conversations between almost sapient entities without a particular agenda.

And today nettime does resemble one of few coffee shops I care to visit. The
moment it becomes a party headquaters or someone lays a claim to represent
coffee shop patrons the illusion dissolves.
