Re: <nettime> "Next" theme for Ars Electronica

Lets add the subject of junk mail. Austria has the most severe legislation
against junk mailers I know, they can be punished etc, with unclear
borders, commercial, political trash, but they have also a tradition of
priviledges, like the priviledge to cut pigs balls in some extremly poor
villages. Maria Theresia.. How would a junk mail priviledge for local
shops for their neighborhood look like ?

The art of government..
