[-empyre-] introducing 2003 -empyre- production team.

Happy 1st birthday -empyre- ...

I started this list in the beginning of 2002 as I had been getting
frustrated with the low ratio of signal to noise on other lists, I had seen
lists like Recode and Syndicate disintergrate by discussing thier internal
functions rather than issues, and I also wanted a discussion space which
would explore topics specific to 3d spaces on the web.  And most
importantly, I saw other lists where the culture of the Internet and impacts
of technology were being discussed by writers and academics, but not by the
actual artists who were making work in the field.

Initailly it was intended it to be a small list, but to my surprise it took
on a life of its own and grew expotentially... Thank you to everyone who has
participated in the list over the last year to make it the succes that it
has been. Unfortunately, I no longer have the time to maintain the list and
this year due to my other committments need to take a very back seat.  I am
pleased to announce that  in 2003 -empyre-  has a refreshed team of
