You've got about a week to get ready for yet another good conference on new media: from March 8-10, University of California, Santa Barbara, hosts "Interfacing Knowledge: New Paradigms for Computing in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences". Featuring heavyweights in the field, including Peter Lunenfeld, Lev Manovich, and Katherine Hayles, the discussion will surely be lively. Because Net Art News has given you ample lead time, you'd better ask some good questions. Why not pick up your copy of Manovich's "The Language of New Media" off the shelf and choose a passage to inquire about? These guys know their stuff, so don't be afraid to speak up and find out where digital art is headed--and where it's been.
