Re: <nettime> report_on_NNA



Hi all, just a few comments. I enjoyed the Montreal nettime online and 
the tech worked out fine. It is really a shame that the announcement of 
this (online) event came through only hours after the event ended. The 
reason for this is simple. Ted and Felix should be thanked for their 
massive work, move on and rotate, leaving others (a bigger group, I 
would suggest) to moderate the central nettime-l list. To correct Ted 
(with whom I have not been in direct contact for many years), I left 
the nettime-l moderation group early 2000. I wrote down my version of 
the nettime history till 2000 in my book Dark Fiber. I am indeed one of 
the founders of nettime and take credit for that work from 95-99, yes. 
Besides that I am, still, a regular contributor to nettime-l and 
nettime-nl. We do not hear much from the other language lists in this 
debate, but they exist and some of them do very well. Maybe not as 
lively discussion channels, but the problems that nettime-l has are 
actually shared by many lists. Regards, Geert
