i think nettime *can* respond.  anyone can sit on their panels, give 
speeches for nettime, anyone who subscribes to the list can receive the 
oscar nobel prize for nettime.  nettime has no leader - i think anyone 
who represents it is just fine (as long as they are actually subbed to 
it).  whether it be berobed honored academic in ivory tower, founder 
moderator plower through emails and selector of content, be-pimpled geek 
with monitor tan and code flowing out of ears, foppish net artist with 
vector graphics always on the backburner.  

it doesn't really matter who it is now does it.... in my opinion, for 
this kind of thing, the less sensible the better.  can't someone just 
*volunteer*?  hell i volunteer.  beth, count me in.

sorry to harsh on your soundbite alan, it was convenient, - respect.
