P.S. I tolerate nettime in my mailbox because I can't figure it out. And
once in a while it has something that makes sense. Since when is creativity
distributable - or even desirable in the individual, undistributed case?
Don't be fooled by the contemporary fascination with "creativity." It's a
dangerous, destructive force, rarely producing anything good. Far better to
cultivate harmonious work, sing old songs and watch the sun set from a quiet
vantage point. For most people the creation of one or two things in a
lifetime should be sufficient - and that includes creation by means of
sexual reproduction.

Seems to me that nettime is better suited to being a subject of the 
forum than a defined community participant. What Beth and Eyebeam may be 
looking for might be better represented by The Thing, which hosts the 
nettime mailinglist. There is an actual TT community that has being 
doing something like what I imagine they mean by "distributed 
creativity" for a long time now without much institutional interest. The 
issues described in the Eyebeam blurb for the forum are issues that are 
central to TT's mission. So why don't they just go to the source?

Umm... no, not artistic, kind of co/mp/nvulsive; not sure if you've 
defined *participate*, an email list is not something that 
participates in that which is other than itself; doesn't really 
matter what I think - that's because of the email list thing too...
