Subject: Virtual Worlds 98

 There have been several successful scientific conferences on Virtual
Reality and other ones on Artificial Life, but very few of them have tried
to integrate both approaches. Considering recent advances, this seems to be
one of the most promising approach for the synthesis of realistic and
imaginary virtual worlds ...
First International Conference on Virtual Worlds Paris IIM 1st - 3rd July
1998   Virtual Worlds 98 hopes to extend the scientific community by
encouraging contributions from people involved in Art works related to the
conception, design and applications of Virtual Worlds.

Subject: critical discussion on electronic money
Organization: moving art studio

moving art studio just started a critical mailing list discussing
electronic money. besides privacy and security issues, aestetical
questions about the form of digital money will be of concern. the
name of the list is e-money. we invite you to share points of view
or to simply follow the ongoing discussion.

read an extract from the info-file:

| A new telematic market is evolving. Businesses are pushing commercial
| content and marketing strategies on the net. They learned how to target
| and customize mailing lists. The formerly predominant  freeware spirit,
| expressed by great rebellious softwares like Anarchie, Apache, Linux,
| Mosaic, SQL, is loosing ground. An average of the recently  arrived
| neighbors in the net-community seem to favor commercial solutions.
| This is the context in which choices for an adapted net currency
| are made.

| The aim of the discussion is to screen the different aspects of the
| digitalization of money and to anticipate possible scenarios. The evolution
| of money always meant that supplementary levels of abstraction were being
| added. Digital money seems to have a paradoxical nature. Although remaining
| a pure representation of value (as with all kinds of former money), it is
| missing form. It can no longer be touched or *smelt*.

| One basic question of the discussion could be: Shall we render something
| invisible visible? Does digital money necessarily need a form? Are our
| traditional concepts of representation shifting towards another category?
| [...]
| Electronic money appeals to a new variation of crime. While bank robbers
| become more computer and network literate clients worry about personal
| loses. Who will assume the risks of electronic fraud, the bank or the
| individual?

the moving art studio project reflects upon the development and presentation
of new media. it has a particular interest in electronic art. if you like to
