Craig, I did not realize you were the author/compiler/forwarder of that
book. Thanks a lot for that one. As a networked activist, tactical
media-maker and writer in Europe in the Luther Blissett days I slowly
discovered that I was coming out of mail art, like remembering a history
one had never even heard of. Your book was part of that remembrancing,
along with some serendipitous meetings and chance discoveries. Lacan
seems to have been wrong about letters not reaching their destinations.
Whatever the iniquity of mainstream politics, there is always an
important, effective, transformative place for relational webs that
remain mostly invisible, and in fact, only partially accessible to all
participants, until they burst out of latency and grip the present at a
moment that's pretty hard if not impossible to predict.
