On a different tack, though in relation to the state:  I wonder what people
make of the recent Vodafone digital art awards -

I realise Su that you won't be able to talk about this, but in an
environment of low public investment in new media arts, and a culture
without a strong tradition of private philanthropy, it seems interesting to
me that that it should be a multinational mobile phone provider making a
major investment in  "Digital Arts". Perhaps this could be read productively
alongside the disbanding of the Australia Council New Media Arts board? Are
we going to see more of this?
