Moderator - Eyebeam Distributed Creativity Forum

  • Deadline:
    Nov. 4, 2003, 4:55 p.m.

Hi –

Some of you may recall that Eyebeam invited Rhizomers to participate in
an online forum on Distributed Creativity (see below for more
information). There is a week duration in late November/early December
in which the Distributed Creativity discussions will take place on
Rhizome Raw (along side regular Raw happenings).

According to Eyebeam, the moderator's responsibilities are to:

* stir the conversation for that week
* point people to look at art works for examples on Eyebeam's forum
* ask questions, engage participants
* perhaps do one post a day during the seven day tenure

I am looking for Moderators for the Rhizome Raw week – November 28-
December 4. There is a stipend ($200) for moderators so if you're
interested in this project please email me with DC Moderator in the
Subject Line and let me know why you would be willing to take on this
responsibility. If you want to detail moderation experience that is
welcome also. There is additional information on Distributed Creativity


Best, Rachel
