Subject: search for statistic

Hello everyone

i'm searching for a statistic i came accross about two months ago ether 
through nettime or cyberculture which is about how much data is lost in 
modern times due to the use of computerisation, i.e. something along the 
lines of (an astonishing) 70% of all data computerised is lost every year.

this was in an article about possibly the internet??  anyway i know its a 
long shot but maybe this stuck in sombody else's head and they can recall 
the article??

sorry to be so vague!!  thanks in advance

Garrett Lynch

Subject: open_digi > fighting BRADYS eviction > Friday, August 2nd

Hi nettime-l people,

the residents of BRADYS of Brixton, hosts of open_digi, have been served with an eviction order by the local Lambeth government Council, which could be effective from Monday, August 5th. Blind bureaucracy and subservience to commercial property developers means they would rather see the historic BRADYS rot than be put to good use. We will need your support to fight for our aim of an open access digital arts centre in London (with supporting affordable accommodation for visiting artists).

get down there if you can, Friday, August 2nd. Join the email list at for news on fighting the eviction.

8.00pm >>> party doors open

9.00pm >>> Mike Slocombe, editor of will discuss urban75 specifically and activism on and through the web in general 

10.00pm >>> Florian and others from will demo and discuss their work 

11.00pm >>> Elout de Kok > > Pixel Jockey Xtraordinaire from Amsterdam will discuss and answer questions about his work 

midnight till dawn >>> elout, TOXI of and atty will create light and sound

the open-digi season is organized in conjunction with the residents of BRADYS,, OFFLINE and with support of and their site
