Re: <nettime> nottime: the end of nettime


I was really sad to read this. I really value the nettime list. I
can't think of another forum that allows me to connect to these issues
on a daily basis. I can't think of another group that I subscribe to
that has the same depth of discussion. That's not to say that these
group discussions and community dynamics are never problematic, but
when is it ever otherwise?

I'm not sure if I've ever contributed anything to nettime myself, but
I'm a reader; I pay attention to these threads in my inbox and they
provide a welcome critical heft in the middle of other lists populated
by calls for conference papers and e-mails calling me to action on
avaaz or Loomio :)

Part of what I like is that the discussions use plain text; they
aren't restricted to 140 characters or punctuated by rich media.
Surely the fact that they take this very simple form is what has
allowed the list to progress and endure? And also what makes it
potentially open to change or flexibility in the future?
