Re: <nettime> radio nettime: 8 Sept 2019 12:00-13:00

It looks like nettime became a thing unto itself (there must be a fancy name for that.) Due to its longevity, this was bound to happen at some point, like in biological evolution, when random amino acids get together and some combination survives, it lingers on, and given enough time, you get life. Nettime survived bunch of crisis, and it won't be sympathetic to being killed ( ).

The point being, nettime is more interesting in itself than through external references that are 'discussed'. Several thousands of moderately sapient people can be a formidable force. Witness the traffic surges after termination announcements (I think Ted & Felix are doing this for entertainment), or when undesirables need to be condemned (Morlock etc.) These surges are beyond any traffic related to externalities.
