Hello Andrea, 
Absolutely loved your participation a few months ago and so glad you have joined in on –empyre-.  Many of us in the North America will be making it to Los Angeles to the College Art Association.  If anyone from –empyre- listserv will be around we can arrange to meet for drinks.  

We have most definitely touched down in real space—IIt was featured as part of documenta 12's Magazine Project conducting three moderated conversations in 2006 and 2007. In 2008, --empyre- collaborated with the Anderson Art Ranch in Snowmass, Colorado to offer two Presidential Full Merit Scholarships to members of the -empyre- community. -empyre- also has collaborated with institutions and festivals to produce dynamic online forums for physically located events. Some of those events have included the Cornerhouse in Manchester, Marcos Weskamp's Social Circles visualization slice of the list dynamics. In 2008 -empyre- co-hosted a special conference with City Light Books on Paul Virilio in San Francisco, In 2009, a special panel on "viral marketing" was hosted by Exit Art in New York City. In 2010 a discussion held around The Making Sense Colloquium at the Centre Pompidou, Paris was sponsored by -empyre-. And in the fall of 2011 -empyre- hosted a networking event at the annual ISEA (International Symposium for Electronic Arts) in Istanbul, Turkey. We also participated in a HASTAC conference in Peru in 2015 and met many –empyreans- on solid ground. 

If you will be in LA between February 18 to 20th let us know.

Hello longtime empyreans,

Being very new to this community since winter 2017 I enjoy that this is an
online listserv because it is devoted to *discussing *things.
Facebook is about to popularize an idea and if you start a Twitter (with
its limit of word count) the only thing it does to get a lot of people
interested in your observation and creates quick connection to others that
are fleeting.

In this short time Im part of the listserv it gave me in contrast to other
online platforms connection to people that are devoted to deeper thinking
and willing to discuss and engage with others people thinking.

I do sense a desire to meet the listserv people in person, so may be in the
near future as an extension of this listserv virtual space there could be
an opportunity to meet as well in a physical space.

looking forward to meet others thinking and being and be part of the
discussions that grows out of this listserv community.
