Re: a request to rhizome

Mark and Rachel,

I request you to move the discussion on the grant awarded to Beatrice to another forum which is more private. Bea has been a close friend of mine in the past and I have no intention to publicly humiliate her and defame her character. This issue has spurred a lot of debate and a number of things have cropped up which do not form part of my initial insinuations against Bea. Now that you have taken note of the issue and are willing to address it, I feel that the discussion should be restricted to Rhizome board members, Beatrice and me.

It would be really helpful if Rhizome could set up a separate discussion board for this issue. This URL could be announced to the rest of the list members and people who feel they have something valid to say can speak out here. This issue on the general list has become a spot for a lot of unrelated people to take a shot at Beatrice, Rhizome and myself, thus embroiling this thing with a lot of complications. My accusations against Bea are very clear and I would like those to be addressed separately and arrive at a conclusion about those before Rhizome decides to take up other accusations by other parties.

Thank you.

Regards,
Vishal Rawlley

p.s: we could also sort this through e-mail exchanges if a separate forum cannot be set up.

    i'm not disagreeing that it would probably be best to handle this in
    a less public forum, but--

    i'm a bit suspect of VR's claim that he didn't want to humiliate or
    defame bea (he probably needs to assert this for legal reasons
    himself) when that result seems to be the only reasonable outcome to
    his original post. VR made this thing public; he made the original
    post to rhizome_raw. was it an error on his part to post it to
    rhizome_raw? did he mean to send it only to mark tribe? he is not
    going to *prove* on this list that he is the

    because it's his word against theirs at this point. we would need to
    see evidence of his working on the projects and that the concepts
    were mostly completed prior to his relationship with bea and nunga.

    did VR feel he needed to stir things up on raw to get the attention
    of rhizome admin? did he attempt to contact rhizome admin before
    going public on raw? did rhizome admin give him the brush-off?
    personally, i doubt it, i can't see mark tribe or rachel greene
    ignoring this sort of thing if it would have been sent to them
    personally and confidentially.
