<nettime> Internet creativity: Open Sources, Open Borders


.....even though i really admire geert and jonah 's thougth and work and i
think they deserve the best of all... what is really funny to see is how
the Spanish ministry of Science and Technology that has never given an
euro for digital art in Spain and has never shown any kind of interest to
support art and science collaborations in the art context or at their own
universities within their research programs in Spain now appear as "in the
mood", or as a cool Ministry involved with high tech questions and even in
a "international context"...great!

i think it's a great opperation, cheaper than helping to their own spanish
artists,scientifics, universities and so on...and it's funny nowadays that
we have just known that almost all the money that the Ministry of Science
and Technology gives to research is involved in offensive weapons (not
defensive weapons as they used to tell us)and it's funny because so many
other things...

but it's great to have another prize going around and i keep being a
Little scared about the art's conception of the Ministre of Culture and
Science and Technology as a decoration to wrap the disasters of war and
hard neoliberal politics going around in Spain rigth now under Mr.Aznar
legacy.

I hope this prize could mean the begining of a change in Spain and the
Minstry begins to help to produce instead to decorate....
