Gnutella, Limewire and Napster have manifest some of the powers of peer-to-peer data swapping. In hot pursuit of these applications, the entertainment industry has gone on the defensive and flexed its legal muscles. But what about other possibilities for culturally challenging uses of decentralized broadcasting? To address this question, NYU's Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) is hosting another of its 'Media Art Or Whatever' (MeAOW) forums, this time entitled 'Post Napster Audio and Video: Innovations in the Network.' Panelists include Christian Nold (RCA), Pit Schultz (klubradio.de, nettime.org, mikro.org), and Natalie Jeremijenko (Bureau of Inverse Technology and Yale University) with remote participation from Zeljko Blace, Mark Davis, and Kate Rich. The forum will take place on Tuesday, April 15 at 4:00PM EST, with a concurrent live webcast. - Ryan Griffis
