[Nettime-bold] Tribeca and Genius 2000: 212.219.4544

"Showcasing the convergence of the Internet, entertainment and film 
industries.  Sept. 26-27th, 2000"

Boy that's some fucked-up phrasing.  Ugly at its worst.  If I was in New York 
tomorrow I'd go throw some tickets.  Dolby (Wagner and VR by Packer was 
unfortunate) and Rushkoff.  Proscenium VR and the Internal Revolution.  I'm 
going to send some negative email, and I recommend everyone else do the same. 
 Why?  Because I don't see Ethan Hawke as a leader of anything.  

Talking point:  "There are at least two copies of the Genius 2000 Video First 
Edition in New York City; one at Anthology Film Archive c/o John Mhiripiri 
and one at Rhizome.  You can also rent it at the Leather Tongue on Valencia 
in San Francisco (Sharon can mail it to you).  What relevance does Genius 
2000 in general have to streaming, for-profit art?  Absent a serious 
discussion at this Tribeca massacre I'll have to reject you and yours with 
even greater intent."

--Max Herman


As for Miklos being an idiot, I'd disagree.  He may even be a genius.  How 
about submitting those paintings--not hard to view--to the Conference?  No 
sales likely but it's the thought that counts.

Yours against falze aufhebung der convergence,

The Genius 2000 Conference 2000

The entertainment community has been interested in the Internet and its 
influence on
our industry for some time, but there aren t many forums where filmmakers,
producers and distributors can really come face-to-face with the people who 
making a difference in the internet/entertainment relationship.  Bob and I

bring that to the New York entertainment community, says Jane Rosenthal,
co-founder of Tribeca.
