[-empyre-] rehearsal of a network - [week 3] Dear all

It has been an amazing week 2, thanks for all your contribution... I 
should emphasize that for sure all threads from week 1&2 can be continued.

thanks for Nitasha Dhillon's posting knowing she's much between borders 
at the moment.  I was happy to meet Nitasha this past March at her 
studio in Buffalo U. Her passion for organizing/engaging, her persuasive 
articulation renew my hope for a generation lost in cellphone social 

Nitasha's report on "Decolonize This Place" , the physical/analogue 
occupation, the bodies en masse that count, serves us well to get into 
the third week of 'rehearsal of a network'. for this third week 
"post-Net network imagination", we have a great list of guests who are 
artists, activists, researchers, cultural practitioners, economists, 
ultimately the forefront DO-ers, persistently engaging in social (as a 
society) /political network build up..

We also hope all empyrians can jump into the postings and voice your 
activities and comment.
I appreciate much the lively interaction you all put in!
