my personal
preference is to take a more informal engagement in collegial discussion when
it is not necessary, more in the vein of the coffee house in the East Village
versus a dais at the conference of your choice. I believe that each of us in
our presence has some interest or credential that has drawn us here or elicited
our invitation. The evolving world of new media, especially that of net art, is
unique in its relative openness and in that much of contemporary practice is
not entirely centered within the traditional centers of power (i.e.
traditionalist institutions such as the museum and academy).
