<nettime> New articles on www.manovich.net


Since the early days of Rhizome and Nettime I have been periodically posting
many of my new texts to these lists. This was a great way to reach potential
readers without waiting for slow academic publishing process, and receive
feedback from them.

In the last few years I have stopped doing this - the reason is that I am
preparing two new books and I hope that the readers of these books will be
surprised by some new material they will find. However, as I am editing some
parts of the manuscripts into articles, I place these articles on my web
site. (Most of them are too long to post on a mailing list anyway.)

www.manovich.net now has 6 new articles completed in 2006, and 5 articles
completed in 2005.

Please note that some of these articles are are already forthcoming in
different publications. Therefore in case you want to reprint any of these
articles, please get in touch with me first.
