Re: <nettime> artfcity: Turbulence.org Going Offline


We talked ab0ut this at ISEA this week, primarily with Tim Murray  {AT}  the 
Cornell archives.  This is a disturbing thing; and I asked whether what 
we were going to wind up with in the end was documentation, which he 
said "Maybe"...

You can't send a web server out as a torrent,and Turbulence's files are 
likely multi-terabyte if compressed into a single file, which would be 
ludicrous to deal with.  The only thing I coudl see, institutionally, 
was Murray's idea of a static mirror, which is a thought.

But online communities are living things, and once they stop having a 
motive force, they lose their vitality, and just become museums.
Hopefully someone will choose to host a mirror.

Can anyone say The Thing?
