Announcing: Rhizome Location

Posted by Francis Hwang | Fri Jul 22nd 2005 10:49 a.m.

Hey kids,

I just rolled out the next Member feature here at Rhizome.org:
Location. Go here to see what I'm talking about:

http://rhizome.org/location.rhiz

Location gives Members the option to be searchable by their country of
residence. Right now we imagine this will be most useful for those
Members who live in countries where the new media arts scene has a ways
to grow. For example, right now we've got two Rhizome Members who live
in Finland:

http://rhizome.org/location.rhiz?location=fi

Each specific location also has an RSS feed, so you can be notified of
new Members coming on in your country. (RSS for everything! Yay!) For
example, Finland's RSS feed is:

http://rhizome.org/syndicate/location/fi.rss

Not everyone will want to publish this information, of course. So if
you want to opt-out, you can do so by following these steps:

1. Log in to the Rhizome web site.
2. Go to your preferences page at http://rhizome.org/preferences/ .
3. Click on the "Hidden" checkbox by the Country field, and then click
"Submit" at the bottom of the page.

( I already sent out this info to every Member last week, but you never
know. Sometimes people don't read their email. )

And, of course, if you think this is cool and you're not yet a Rhizome
Member, you can make a member contribution here:
