[Nettime-bold] mark amerika: digital literacy symposium

in melbourne, australia on tuesday april 16th we are running a 
symposium with Mark Amerika. details below:

New media technologies (everything from the first claims of 
Multimedia CDROM through to G3 phones) have been promoted on the 
promise of ubiquitous and transparent access to 'content' yet the 
authoring of 'content' appears as the ability to connect 
discontinuous and apparently opaque fragments into emergent wholes. 
Digital literacy and identity is the ability to read and write these 
new forms of connection. This symposium will examine this problem 
from a number of perspectives and will explore the digital as a 
process of construction rather than reception.
