hiya cpr + all empryians.

i agree with this, cpr. i've also been a trifle unezy with the way certain threads have tended to focus on _"_ new media _/"_ as an over-arching n.clusive field [despite the attempts 2 offer partially disjunctive definitions]. i have, howeva, only had the time 2 briefly scan certain topics so mebbe have missed much....i must admit 2 being more n.terested in the current breakdown thread in terms of influences that is now just occurring.....

In direct answer to Nick's ? of Alan - Not at all.

What it does point to is rather a rehashing of cultural and techno-cultural
histories and discourses which have been bandied about since the '60's in a number of various disciplines and communities, ranging from the visual arts, experimental media, to identity politics/representations ( hush that one up, quickly!) and the newly re-inscribed ( and, of course, funded) science-art collaborative partnerships.
