Subject: NO NEW ROUND RADIO - ((i))ndimedia + greenpeace for WTO independent coverage

NO NEW  ROUND  RADIO  -  9  november  2001  starting  from  15:00  GMT
distributed independent radio coverage on WTO

A global coordinated distributed effort to cover  no-wto  actions  and
countersummits, where any free independent media can join in taking up
part of the 24 hour programming.

This is the only  independent  broadcast  platform  covering  the  WTO
conference, which is quite possibly a  defining  meeting  between  the
west, the developing world and Islam. The anti-globalisation  movement
has  never  had  a  voice  in  the  area,  so  this  is  an  important
opportunity to  build  up relations with the arab world.  We hope  the
IMC network makes the most of this and we make true progress in  being
a true global independent news media network. Indymedia really does go
where no other news agency will go and thus  brings  a  voice  to  the
unheard,  the  dispossessed  and  from  all  corners  of  the  planet.

With the help of Indymedia, Greenpeace intends to put on  the  web  at
least 1 hour of English programming a day during the WTO meeting, also
Arabic programming is being planned.  The origin of  those  broadcasts
will be the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior, as it is docked in  Doha,
Qatar  during  the  4th  Ministerial  meeting  of  the   World   Trade
Organization (WTO).

We invite any Indymedia Center to help cover on  the  global  site  as
well as on their local sites the events happening in  their  locations
from nov 9th to nov 13th.
Phone lines will be soon set up to receive  incoming  calls  from  all
over the world to report on the various actions:  there  will  be  the
possibility to upload audio features on mirrored  ftp  sites  so  that
anybody partecipating can share the content produced  and  radios  can
transmit it in any form.

We  hope  that  the  coordination  will  grow   to   include   another
communication means and  as  much  people  as  possible:  it's  a  big
experiment and it could spawn the idea  of  keeping  this  distributed
audio project.

Coordination will take place on #radiodoha

mp3 stream mountpoints on:
(and eventually more, check for updates)

if  you  want  to  collaborate  please   contact   the   tech   staff:
<> <>  <>
<> <> or come  on  irc  to  coordinate

if you can offer a webserver mirroring audiofile features (approx 50Mb
space needed) please let us know!  a list of links where  to  download
and scheduled programming will be updated on and pages.

when this all starts:
9th november 15:00 GMT
coordination is allready going on IRC
going on until 13th november.

          napster was only the beginning

          an introduction to [updated version 0.5.5]

          a spectre is haunting the corporate world--the spectre of
          organized world-wide file-sharing. mp3, to name the most common
          synonym for the becoming-distributor of millions of former
          customers, has clearly shown that the flows of digital data are
          much more driven by people and popular protocols than they are
          determined by legislation, ownership or the new global rules of
          the corporate-political. napster has reverse-engineered the
          ideology of a whole industry, and it has finally proven its
          total, complete and absolute obsolescence. today more than ever,
          the nets are zones of excess, immune against the business model
          of electronic scarcity. the transnational companies that are
          trying to break up the file-sharing networks have declared a war
          they will never be able to stop. there are going to be thousands
          of napsters. is not even zero-point-five of them.

          we are not the dot in dot-com, neither are we the minus in e-
          book. the future of online publishing sits right next to your
          computer: it's a $50 scanner and a $50 printer, both connected
          to the internet. we are the & in copy & paste, and plain ascii
          is still the format of our choice. it shouldn't require a plug-
          in to read a book on the net, nor should it require a credit
          card. the text industry is a paper tiger. along with the mass
          erosion of their proprietary rights goes the vanishing of their
          digital watermarks. packed today, cracked tomorrow. whatever
          electronic gadgets they will come up with--they are all going to
          be dead media on their very release day. forget about your brand
          new kafka dvd. i already got it via sms. one shouldn't expect
          the 50 million former users of napster to be digitally
          illiterate: they won't judge an e-book by its cover.

          this is not project gutenberg. it is neither about constituting
          a canonical body of historical texts (by authors so classical
          that they've all been watching the grass from below for almost a
          century of posthumous copyright), nor is it about htmlifying
          freely available books into unreadable sub-chapterized hyper-
          chunks. texts relate to texts by other means than a href. just
          go to your local bookstore and find out yourself. the net is not
          a rhizome, and a digital library should not be an interactive
          nirvana. the conceptual poverty of today's post-academic, post-
          corporate public online services--and we haven't seen dot-museum
          yet--is not and has never been a desirable alternative to the
          dystopic vision of a future controlled by the super-pervasive
          data-streams of the emerging military-entertainment complex.
          there are still other options. nostalgia is slavery. stay home,
          read a book.

          information does not want to be free. in fact it is absolutely
          free of will, a constant flow of signs of lives which are
          permanently being turned into commodities and transformed into
          commercial content. is not part of the information
          business. they say there was a time when content was king, but
          we have seen his head rolling. our week beats their year. ever
          since we have been moving from content to discontent, collecting
          scripts and viruses, writing programs and bots, dealing with
          textz as warez, as executables--something that is able to change
          your life. this is not promotional material. facing the unified
          principles of information--the combined horror of global
          communication and so-called guerilla marketing--there is no more
          need for media theory or cultural studies. the resistance
          against corporate culture can itself no longer remain in the
          cultural domain. you make a mistake if you see what we do as
          merely apolitical.

          we are studying the coils of the serpent, watching the walk of
          the penguin, mapping the moves of our wired enemies.
          intellectual, digital and biological property--cornerstones of
          the new regimes of control--are the direct result of organized
          corporate piracy. they are not only replacing such dubious and
          obsolete notions as freedom, democracy, human rights and
          technological progress. all these new forms of ownership are, in
          the first place, attempts to expropriate people's work, data and
          bodies--just as the they begin to acquire, for the first time in
          history, the technical means to organize them in a radically
          different way. today's global media and communication
          conglomerates are mafias, and we shouldn't count on what's left
          of the national governments when it comes to fighting back.
          "humanity won't be happy until the last copyright holder is hung
          by the guts of the last patent lawyer." napster was only the
          beginning. the nineties of the net are over. let's move on.

The report states that most people find local online groups in the
off-line world.  I also see tremendous potential for online efforts
which make it easier to find, evaluate, and join online communities
based on geography and other key factors.  This happens to tie
extremely closely with the proposed Open Groups standards effort that I am

90 million have participated in online groups

Many use the Internet to connect with online communities that embrace
their hobbies, their professions, their passions, and their beliefs

28 million go online with church groups, sports leagues, and social
organizations in their home towns

WASHINGTON- The Internet allows tens of millions of Americans to
participate in a thriving social world where they enjoy serious and
satisfying contact with online communities.

Some 84% of Internet users have contacted an online group. That means that
more Americans have used the Internet to contact a group than have gotten
news online, or searched for health information, or bought a product.

Many of these online groups are far flung and allow Internet users to
connect easily with others around the world who share their passions,
beliefs, hobbies, and lifestyles. At the same time, 26% of online
Americans use the Internet to intensify their connection to their local
community by planning church meetings, organizing neighborhood gatherings,
arranging local sports league operations, coordinating charity activities,
and petitioning local politicians.

These findings represent some hopeful news that the Internet can be a tool
for vigorous social engagement, rather than a technology that spurs
isolation and alienation among users.

· 50% of those who participate in online groups say the Internet has
helped them get to know people they would not otherwise have met.

· More than a third (37%) of those who participate in online groups
say the Internet has helped them meet others from different
generations than their own.

· More than a quarter (27%) of those who participate in online groups say
the Internet has helped them connect with people from different racial,
ethnic, or economic backgrounds than their own.

These results come in a survey of Internet users by the Pew Internet
& American Life Project, a research organization that examines the
social impact of the Internet. They are contained in a report
entitled, "Online Communities: Networks that nurture long-distance
relationships and local ties."

"For vast numbers of Americans, use of the Internet simultaneously
expands their social worlds and connects them more deeply to the
place where they live," says Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Internet &
American Life Project. "Online groups are comfortable places for people to
congregate and get to know organizations and people they might never have

Many online Americans are using the Internet to connect to
traditional groups that exist in the offline world such as
professional and trade associations, hobby enthusiast organizations,
religious groups, ethnic and racial fraternal organizations, and
political groups. A surprisingly large number of those contacting
online groups (56%) say they became active in a group -- even
traditional, offline organizations -- after they began communicating
with it over the Internet.

At the same time, millions of online Americans now use the Internet
to connect to groups to which they belonged before they began using
the Internet - and they report that their use of the Internet has
helped them become more involved with those groups.

One other encouraging sign is that use of the Internet is drawing new
kinds of people to groups. In particular, young adults and minorities are
using the Internet to participate in all kinds of online clubs and
organizations and this is leading to new forms of civic involvement.

"The network of networks has become a collection of communities,"
said John Horrigan, senior researcher at the Pew Internet Project and
principal author of the report. "Many actively engage in cyber groups
through email and bulletin boards that are lively forums for sharing
ideas, hashing out issues, and making new friends."

The Pew Internet Project study identifies 9 different types of
Internet users who are attracted to online groups. Many belong to
several types: On average, a Cyber Groupie (or someone who has
checked out an online group) has visited 4 different online groups at one
time or another. The different types are:

· The Getting Ahead group - 51% of Internet users who have checked
out trade and professional associations or labor unions.  They are
more likely to be college-educated men.

· The Getting By group - 43% of Internet users who use Internet
groups to mange day-to-day responsibilities, such as parenting or
medical conditions.  Women, especially those in the 35-44 age
bracket, gravitate to this group.

· Belief groups - 56% of Internet users who go to religious online
groups or those relating to spiritual beliefs.  Those in Belief
groups value making personal connections more than the average Cyber

· Lifestylers - 28% of Internet users who go to online groups to
contact people with similar lifestyles.  Lifestylers tend to be men
under age 34 and are among the very active emailers of other online
community members.

· Ethnic and racial groups - 15% of Internet users who have contacted an
ethnic group online.  This is the most racially diverse set of Cyber
Groupies; this group is also younger and more urban than other categories
of online communitarians.

· Civic Engagement group - 45% of Internet users who have contacted
an online group such as a neighborhood association or local
charitable group.  This group is older than average, and active in
emailing online groups close to home.

· Political Groupies - 22% of Internet users who have contacted a
political group online.  This group is mostly educated white males,
and they are among most active emailers of others in online groups,
and report that online groups have deepened their involvement in
groups to which they already belong.

· Entertainment groupies - 60% of Internet users who go to online
groups about TV shows or fan sites of particular performers.  This
Cyber Groupies are younger than average, and have been online longer
than others who go to online groups.

· Sports Junkies - 42% of Internet users go to online groups about
their favorite sports teams or local teams in which they participate.
 These users fit a perhaps predictable profile: they tend to be
suburban men between the ages of 35 and 44.

Here are some other key findings from the survey:

· Men tend to be drawn to online groups involving professional
activities, politics, and sports.

· Women tend to be drawn to online medical support groups, local
community associations that are online, and cyber groups relating to

· Lurking is not prevalent among Cyber Groupies; fully 60% email
their group, 43% several times a week.

· 35% of all Internet users go online for news about their local
community or community events.

· 30% of all Internet users go online to get information about their
local government.

· 11% of Internet users know of a local issue in which the Internet
played a role in organizing citizens to communicate with public

· 51% percent of all Americans know of a place in their community
where the Internet is publicly available. Overwhelmingly, these
places are public libraries. African-Americans are the most likely to say
that their community lacks public access to the Internet; 42% of
African-Americans say their community does not have publicly available
Internet terminals somewhere, compared with 29% of whites and 33% of

The Pew Internet & American Life Project is a nonpartisan,
independent research organization funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts to
study the impact of the Internet on families, communities, health care,
education, civic and political life, and the work place.

The Center for Digital Discourse and Culture (CDDC) in the College of
Arts and Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
is accepting proposals for hosting artistic, critical, and literary
projects. The CDDC ( ) has been in operation for
over two years, and it publishes hypertext journals, hosts digital
research archives, and cooperates with many international cyberculture

As an entirely digital point-of-publication, the CDDC is seeking from
individuals and groups, proposals of artistic or academic merit for use
of our server space.  The main focus of the CDDC is to explore the new
communicative potentials of hypertext, hypermedia, and web-centered
publication. The review processes will be as extensive as those
experienced in print academic outlets, but it too will be conducted in a
fully on-line format.

Proposals should be approximately one page in length.  They should
explain the work, and, if possible, provide examples (current urls) of
the work proposed.  We imagine projects by individual digital artists or
writers, groups of artists, reviewed or curated  online display spaces
or literary journals, and other unique endeavors will take advantage of
this service.  On average, each project can be allocated a considerable
amount of space (i.e. around 50 MB, of web addressable server space,
though both larger and smaller requests will be considered), accessible
from an ftp account on the CDDC servers.

To propose a publication project, or to get more information, contact
the Center for Digital Discourse and Culture at .

Q:How do I get free hosting for my online artistic/literary project at CDDC?
A:You have to submit a proposal first.  That proposal then goes through
a rigorous review process and once it is accepted, then you get free

Q:Do I have to pay for this?
A:There will be no charge for this service.

Q:Can I pay to have my materials hosted and bypass the process?
A:No, there is no way to bypass the review process and while we accept
donations, they will have no affect upon the review process.

Q:I have an idea for a project, but the project is not finished, should
I submit a proposal?
A:We would strongly prefer proposals about completed projects, but will
entertain proposals about projects under construction.  Projects not yet
started are unlikely to make it through the review process.

Q:Can I put ads or other profit making tools in my area in cddc?
A: No, but it is conceivable that one could use these in a form of
artistic expression, and that would be something that would go through
the review process.

Q:Will the CDDC attempt to make profit off of my work, by placing ads, etc.?

Q:Do you provide DNS resolution?
A:We are looking into it, but we know of several free services that can
resolve to our servers and do provide virtual hosting on those servers
as long as some mention of CDDC support is made on the front page or a
sponsors page.

Q:I represent a group of artists and we would like to create a site and
review the work that we want on that site, could that be hosted on CDDC?
A:Yes, we are happy to provide this service to a group of people
maintaining on ongoing or permanent exhibition space.  However, we would
suggest a slightly larger proposal 2-3 pages that includes URL's to the
types of work that your group supports and would include.  This proposal
will then be reviewed and if it is accepted, your group will be given a

Subject: call 4 papers, new online journal

The soon to be launched online peer-reviewed journal, NMEDIAC:The
Journal of New Media & Culture, is accepting paper submissions for its
first and second issues.

NMEDIAC has adopted the mission of publishing peer-reviewed papers and
audiovisual pieces which contextualize encoding/decoding environments and
the discourses, ideologies, and human experiences/uses of New Media
apparatuses.  In relation to previous work, NMEDIAC hopes to provide an
intellectual canvas where the cultural spaces and experiences of new media
are theorized and rigorously explored within both global and local
contingencies of the present and past. Therefore, papers that take
Cultural Studies and 'critical Internet Studies' approaches to analyzing
new media are encouraged. The submission deadline for the first issue is
January 1, 2002. All submissions received after that will be considered
for subsequent issues. Papers should be submitted in APA style by email in
.doc, .pdf, .html, or another format to Jonathan Lillie

Audiovisual new media art or presentations may be submitted or proposed at
any time.  Preference is placed on pieces that are submitted along with,
or incorporate scholarly work, or that emphasize general or specific
themes within new media studies, such as  new media as experienced
culture.  A special issue on new media art is in the works, and we invite
preliminary ideas for audiovisual pieces or papers on this broad topic to
also be submitted.

Please visit the NMEDIAC web site for further information and for the
launch of the journal on January 15, 2002:
