Re: <nettime> crowd-funding on nettime


folks,

first, in my experience, nothing takes 5-10 secs, and even if it does, there are always at least 24 instances of this which makes it 2-4 mins, plus x. (i think that proposals like keith's should come with a donation of personal time to get such simple routines started.)

second, maybe i'm too stupid, but if i understand keith correctly, he is suggesting that by allowing crowd-funding requests we might - at least here on the list - defetishize money and create a zone where the laws of capitalism (or its moral economy) are subverted, or at least ignored? because we integrate those requests into our dedifferentiated social relations? crowd-funding requests flushing alienation out of nettime's Windows?

i'd be surprised...

Keith has the best argument, immo. Esp the 5-10 secs part ;-) Myself was
thinking about a separate CF list, like we have announce (or had), but I think
Keith's suggestion is smarter: trust the mods & then go after yr intuition (&
pocket-book). After all crowd-funding is a clear, and sympathetic alternative
to other types of (capitalist) sponsoring models. Maybe one should think about
an appropriate format (roughly) and also a clear 1st line announce, eg "this
is a crowd-funding apeal"?
Cheers, p+4D!
