Re: <nettime> Enduring Messaging: are microcommunications an art form? Tom Sherman, 2008


Hi Tom,

It is an interesting discussion to delve into the concept of art as
messaging. At a surface level, I suppose qualifying images and objects as
messages and contextually contrasting them to, say for instance, SMS
texting, is a becoming relegated towards not so much as what is involved in
terms of the embedded content, but who is involved in terms of endpoints.

In a network, there are three difference types of messages, with a fourth
being a subdivision of the other;

unicast - one to one
broadcast - one to all
multicast - one to whoever elects to recieve
anycast - anyone who elects to send to anyone to elects to recieve
