Re: <nettime> Has Facebook superseded Nettime?


interesting point because of the direction of questioning it this way.

i guess multi-structures in infotainment and content-spreading have
to becoming more convergent when most of the people you know are
dislocated via several threads on facebook and/or twitter, tumblr,
rss, a.s.o. mailinglists in this perspective are just to bulky to
handle and to quantitative in selection-models of individual needs in
many cases.

on the other hand the read/write style has really changed a lot
through so-called social networking, also the way of communication-
styles. not to support this issue totally but just look at the nettime
posts - they are long, context rich and mostly good written - means:
time- consuming and think-intensive (read/write) in this sense i
guess not the friendlier but the "verbindlichkeits" (conntectivity?)
level seems scale-free on FB supports multidynamic but maybe less
reflective/critical engagement

for sure the side effects you mentioned appear. for artists this is
a challenge as well (for example fresco gamba aka flash gordo aka
yuko.at) along others deal with social-network platforms as art-forms
to delineate abstract levels of usability and attention.

just my bits and pieces - but i would join a nettime facebook

best
