God, where have you been (or where were you ten years ago). Everything
changed, is changing:
Broadband/always on in the home changes everything.
Very large scale conversations
Really, it's the mindsets that change and as tools become available and
accepted, mindets change and we all see things that we didn't see before.
It's an exciting world at the moment, more exciting than it was between
1997 and 2004 to be sure.
As for Rhizome, what of the above has it taken on board?
