<nettime> Announcing Berkeley DMAX Blog

Announcing the DMAX Blog

As an epicenter of the digital revolution, the San Francisco Bay Area  
is a buzzing hive of constant activity and energy around digital  
culture and art made possible by technological innovation. A critical  
feedback forum contributes to a thriving, evolving and intellectually  
playful cultural community. For this reason, the Berkeley Art Museum/ 
Pacific Film Archive’s Digital Media Art Access and Exhibitions  
program (DMAX) and the UC Berkeley Center for New Media (BCNM) are  
hosting such a critical forum - in the form of the new DMAX blog - to  
sustain our community of thinkers.

This blog has a loose and flexible focus on: Bay Area regional /  
digital / art and culture. The regional focus supports a geo-physical  
community of familiar faces that already meets. The broad digital  
culture focus reflects the fact that this community spans many  
professional fields, creating a need for a different kind of apparatus  
from the traditional academic or art review.

Serving as a civic cultural forum for this broad and diverse community  
is a natural role for a public museum and a public university. In this  
spirit, this blog will not limit the public to behind-the-scenes  
comments, but will be open to public participation at all levels (top- 
level posts, comments, events) in addition to featuring bloggers drawn  
from the DMAX and BCNM programs. The DMAX Blog provides our community  
with a gathering place to let each other know what’s going on, what  
people think, and what’s next. Welcome home!
