Attention  -empyre- subscribers:

The moderating team at -empyre- is seeking  subscribers who would be 
interested in joining the moderating team. We are especially keen on 
broadening the moderating team to -empyre- members from outside of 
the US  (of course, we'd love to hear from interested  Americans as 

Moderators are responsible for conceiving, organizing, and 
implementing two monthly discussions per year and for  working with 
the other team members to facilitate critical perspectives on 
contemporary cross-disciplinary issues, practices and events in 
networked media.  Historically, our moderators have been active in 
international new media exhibitions, conferences, and other 
listservs, which permits us to expand our base and to engage with 
emergent issues.   It is important that moderators celebrate 
diversity and the respectful exchange of ideas and practices.

-empyre- is an international global community which preserves its autonomy
as a collaborative entity by engaging with new content on a monthly 
basis. The list was instigated by Melinda Rackham (AU) in 2002.

The current moderating team consists of Renate Ferro (US), Tim Murray
(US), Nicholas Ruiz III (US), and Gabriel Menotti
(Brazil, UK).  The list is soon to be managed from a website at 
Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York, and is generously housed on 
a server maintained by the College of Fina Arts (COFA) at the 
University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.

If interested please contact the Managing Moderators, Renate Ferro 
and Tim Murray, at
empyre at cornell.edu

Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you,

Renate and Tim
