Hi, Christina,

Johannes’ post helped me discover that your post too was cycled into my ‘clutter’ by dear Microsoft.  Yeah, one of the coolest experiments you launched was letting non-English speakers publish in their home languages – I remember Spanish and French, no?    One of the earliest challenges of the “universal” internet was its exclusion of non-English speakers (still an issue of course – and we still encourage folks to write in their home languages when helpful to them).  Of course, you also worked so hard to bring –empyre- off the net, via the Documenta project, and the cool scholarships you arranged at Anderson Ranch in Colorado.  It’s great that we’ve all been able to extend this “outreach” in gatherings at ISEA, CAA, etc., and it would be great if our subscribers were to host similar cocktail meetings or break out sessions in their orbits.  The online  –empyre- archive, which continues to make available all posts on –empyre-, is an incredible resource that would be great to promote even for those who don’t have the energy to be active participants in our community.  We, of course, also remain grateful to the institutional hosts, University of New South Wales and Cornell University, that continue to support –empyre- with server and programming assistance.

Hope you are enjoying the likely arrival of spring in California.
