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.

best, Brian
