Re: <nettime> Supreme Court Rulling consequeces

Hi Ted,

I appreciate that nettime should retain a focus on network-dynamics (in culture, politics, media, communication, art, etc.).

However, I must say that I quite enjoy the ‘nettime-take’ on global political events (such as the impeachment enquiry in the US, the climate crisis, or Brexit). I stopped using facebook actively years ago, never used twitter, and use some networks such as linkedin, academia and so on for a professional online presence.

So next to browsing around like we all do, nettime is still a good pointer to relevant debates.

I do welcome if we can revert a bit more to discussing what the list was originally set up for (net.criticism in the broadest sense).

What i miss here most is a critical discussion of how 'the network’ is weaving in the fine textures of the physical world (mobile, wireless, iot, biometrics and so on), which I have written about, organised events, workshops, whatever - most recent around the affect space concept - but it would be good to hear other takes on that and discuss this.To me still seems a blind spot in network theory..

anyway - keep the list going I’d say.

Felix and I have been thinking about shutting down nettime-l because (as I'd put it, he may well differ) the list should preserve its historical specificity and energy rather than devolve into yet another forum for debates that are easily available in other venues.
