Re: <nettime> calling all lurkers

I want to agree w/ Brian here - nettime for me ironically has the status 
of a book, not only because of peripheral publishing, but also because of 
the functioning of the list, little chatter, more emendations, articles, 
considered replies, some fecundity kept at a minimum. All of this would 
tend towards modernism, i.e. articulated/decontextualized/constructed, 
were it not played out against the background of the roiling net/s; most 
of my time is taken up with culling these days. The internationalism of 
nettime is fundamental to me. It's also my writing venue of choice (which 
means I fundamentally cull before submitting), and the back-channel 
replies I receive have always been incredibly useful. I miss the news-
