Re: <nettime> A Movement Without Demands?


Dear Brian,

In your question below about educational initiatives, are you thinking of something along the lines of the Social Science Centre, Lincoln?

We are still in the process of planning the curriculum, but have been working on this for the last year or so. Much of it depends on the time and energy that local people can spare to work on it. Still, we have 35 or so signed up members of the co-operative, a place to meet and teach, and over a grand in the bank to spend when we need to.
