Re: Behavior, Aura


No, not at all Joseph. It's just that many go through the process of
thinking yet it is not really thinking it is just neurotic deconstruction
which can slow the action of creative fluidity down.

BlankCOPYRIGHT AND DEMOCRACY
Joining Richard Stallman's sizzling polemic on the past and future of
copyright, Sandy Starr explains its increasing regulation by industry groups
and calls for more democracy. Ian Kearns sees copyright as a case in point
of how governments can regulate the net; and Eric Raymond argues the law's
an ass - concentrate on the technology.

Re: VIRTUAL SKYSCRAPER


I thought that this piece was good also - it wasn't self -conscious, it was=
playful.

I thought this jimpunk hopper deal was pretty neat and good. Any art-the=
oretical arguments for or against? Mostly I was glad some were funny, and =
most were articulate without being overly so.

Way ta go Jim!

Re: Cupcakes, signal, noise


Hi Josh,

I agree with you there, and I have also had some personal experience of this
also. There is a certain breed person who will pretend to be your friend
whilst actively trying to jeopardize projects that you are doing because it
threatens their own patch, or they just do not like what you are up to for
their own warped personal reasons. Luckily many people have become
unofficially aware of this and have also experienced such behavior from this
individual. But it has been very tough for us, for this individual is into
controlling a lot of artists under the guise of supporting them and has a
lot of contacts high up. All is beginning to settle now though...phew, some
people are just soooo sad. It's a kind of professional jealousy plus basic
survival rivalry.
