<nettime> The Irreducibly Complex Web Semantics of the diffuse Nettime org


"Nettime" is a good example because even in the case of the Nettime
we're referring to here, the categorization "MailingList" is by no means
uncontroversial. Nettime has also be called a "collaborative filter",
and it has not only involved the mailing list, but also meetings,
printed readers or, in the case of a work by Pit Schultz from 1997, an
experimental slide projector screening in a Berlin techno club."

*I feel quite certain that we Nettimers face no semantic dilemmas that
can't be resolved with the lavish use of more  slide projectors.
