Dear Renate and Tim,
Thank you for inviting us to moderate this week, and a huge thank you to
Monisola, Lyn, Rachel, and Caroline for offering such incredible insights--
it's been a pleasure to connect over these ideas and I hope we continue to
flesh out the ideas we have put forward. I would love to see more
discussion on feminism and technology on empyre and look forward to
participating in discussions on these topics in the future!

All best,

> I want to take the time to give a shout out to Asha and her guests for offering a feminist perspective on sound this past week.  My travels have prevented me from having the internet access I needed to participate fully but I do have so many questions for you that extend beyond the practice of making but imply more political implications.  I would love to spend more time in nurturing topics relating to feminism and technology.  I mentioned that a couple of weeks ago I attended the FemTechNet workshop at the New School.  An international discussion involving feminist technologies would interest me and I know many of our guests so if anyone is willing to co-moderate a month with me in the future let me know as well.
> Simon and Sue thanks for taking over July.  Just a note to let you all know that -empyre will be offline in  August once again for our yearly break.
