Richard Nixon once explained: 'The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity.' Such Chinese 'crisis' understands the Roman 'Janus' understands the Modern ambiguity. And all understand the strengths of the turbulence blog - a blog which embraces both the turbulence and brainstorms of conversation. By showcasing network-enabled performances, and initiating dialogs about them, turbulence.org has established a collective planning team for its Spring/Summer 2006 conference. Organized by artists Helen Thorington, Michelle Riel, Jo-Anne Green, John (Craig) Freeman, Brooke Knight, and a squad of guest-bloggers (currently Nathaniel Stern), and supported by New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. (NRPA), turbulence.org/blog houses an exciting array of international networked performance. Recent posts include political word play, helium balloon soundscapes, and responsive architectures. And while comments are still picking up steam, the scope and creativities of the posted performances promise for a conference full of opportunity (and maybe some danger). - Alyssa Wright
