> to those who may have more knowledge, more experience or even a different
> point of view you are connecting through a network of acquaintances.  When
> Melinda first envisioned a soft-skinned space she invited a VIRTUAL network
> of artists, technologists, writers, about fifty in the beginning, all who
> were friends and acquaintances.  -empyre - allowed this group to exchange
> ideas and even coding information during the early days of html.  In the
> spirit of that early network, -empyre- continues to share knowledge,
> information, and most importantly perspectives from many.  A listserv is
> simply a tool.  It’s a coded platform that enables text based sharing.

> <snip>
>  Jake that is why the listserv has proved to be useful for so many.  For
> example a few years ago I was interested in learning about wearable
> technology.  I gathered together a list of artists and technologists whose
> work intersected with the topic.  For an entire month the group shared
> ideas, information, links, and images with many of our -empyre-subscribers
> joining in.  Of course not all 2000 subscribers ever participate at any
> given time but there are groups within the membership that self-organize
> around the topics that are featured and interested to them.
> When information is printed or published tt it may contain a bias, take
> for example our news sources today that are being informed and delivered by
> social media.   The listserv platform is a discussion space and in any
> discussion there are always complicated but interesting layers that can be
> checked, discussed, and even debated as Murat pointed out in his post.
> A huge shout out to Ana for joining us this past week.  I know that all of
> my students gained so much from sharing your experiences and you probably
> noted that Lauren has become a Stumble upon fan.
> Thanks also to Alan, and Murat, Johannes, Catherine, Nicole, Craig, Brian,
> and Melinda for adding so many historical references for our newer
> subscribers who may not be aware of the early history of online information
> sharing.
> More a bit later this after noon.  Wondering if any of you have technology
> and art blogs that you visit or write for regularly. Thanks to all Renate
