For me youth culture means immediate expression or using media which
require little technical know how and allow a minimal budget. Maybe
that's why the fanzines are so numerous (more than 120!), engaging and
convincing.

E-zines already require more technology (=money) and more know how, but
still allow informal expression ...

There are certain questions Alex Galloway raises that I don't quite
understand. He wrote that HTML and computer fonts are alike because
"both are a set of instructions for the compilation of contents: fonts

In response to the pervasive need for a public forum at the juncture of

Material will be selected and edited by a collective of Media

Stalinistic limitations on the possibilities of network names are a
legacy of the cold war mentality which exists in the current "domain"
name system (DNS) of the internet.

The "organizational" nature of net names reflect the bureaucratic,
militaristic mindset of the centralized agency, InterNIC, now operating
as a private, highly ...

Some Further thoughts on Electronic Art…in relation to ISEA/DEAF

In a fitful exhibition of virtual domains at ISEA 96, of all the worlds
on show, I would want to live in Masaki Fujihata's *Beyond Pages*. It is
not its evocation of childish wonder, nor the classicism of its decorous
symmetry, but that in Fujihata's installation delight, formal perfection
