Whatever nettime is or is not, it is clearly capable of having an
existential crisis.

And a discrete cosmology is emerging, complete with its own gods and demons.
Beth is being offered up to propitiate those gods. A sacrifice to bind the
tribe.

there's always room for one more in the wicker man :-)]

Isn't this the crux: "represent" WHAT?

You can't represent a network.

"It" -- like a THING.
