Maybe there isn't that much to explain that is not already obvious, or
anyway unsurprising.

Nettime.fr has the somewhat checkered history common to (almost) all
French art/culture/politics project with plenty of hi.octane rows among
its unusally ueber-intellectual participants (making each other out for
'debiles' or 'Mongolians'). So it went thru several phases, the last of
which was near-death - and now resurection (Hosannah Hallelujah!)

The problem with nettime-fr, as I see it (and it's likely to continue), is
that it never was able to manage its hybridity between being a 'content'
and an 'agenda' (read 'self-promotion') list. The answer to that is called
moderation (aka 'censorship' in some quarters...) I guess. Well, if you
live on either bank of the Seine, good luck...

Cheers from patrizio & Diiiinooos!

nettime-fr 0.0 ... ;-)
