Dear all,

Thanks everyone for the manifold discussions last week, and especially
Marie for bringing up such rich material from her experience and

This round will entail an interesting departure from the subjects of
noise and revolutions with the contributions of Lasse Scherffig and
Magda Tyzlik-Carver, which will move us to a wide range of topics that
include videogames, feedback, control, curating and language. Quite a
variantological week! =)
