On the front page of the Dana Center "The Dana Center is sexing up 
science for the masses"

sheesh!

And I find no mention of this project in the calendar for March 2007.

at one level -- as an individual who doesn't often identify myself as 
a 'nettimer', more simply a participant in the nettime network -- who 
cares?

although it would be interesting to know WHO exactly from nettime is 
facilitating this 'association.'

on the other hand it could be interpreted as a cheap tactic of career 
promotion of an individual climber.

what about insisting that there be a public synchronous forum 
available to nettime 'associatess' to actually input into the 
conference space...

good questions.  I believe we are entitled to answers!

Cheers
