Discordia wants to hear from you!


Discordia is a critical weblog working at the intersections of art,
activism and critical techno cultures.
Discordia is an experiment in social filtering, collaborative
moderation and different styles of communication.
Discordia opened in June this year, and since then a few hundred users
have registered and started posting.

What does Discordia have on the burner this fall?

Now taking reservations October 2003 to January 2004:

Become a guest star for a week! Or share the spotlight by inviting a
correspondent to guest host along with you!

Some possible topics:
--world summit on the information society
--p2p projects
--taxonomies of online media culture projects
--report from the October conference of Internet researchers in Toronto

In addition:
Discordia is interested in expanding its circle of editors: Editors
are people who make connections between ideas, notice interesting
topics and post them or invite others to post. Editors make use of the
"Nepotism" feature of Discordia to influence the direction of
discussions, while the "Democracy" feature ensures openness in all
