Nettime Presentation: panel discussion

location: Lantaren/Venster, Gouvernestraat 133

Nettime is a mailing list for net criticism, media-activism and It is a movement of individuals and groups that spreads essays, interviews and discussions through the mailing list. It is a social network that has previously published several readers concerning net critique.

The Nettime evening during DEAF98 featured the premier presentation of 'README!', the first international publication of the Nettime mailing list. This 500-page book (published by Autonomedia, New York) collects over a hundred texts and other contributions and offers a highly substantial account of contemporary thought and critical debate about Internet culture.

The presentation of this book was followed by a panel discussion about the role that electronic networks play in the de- and reconstruction of the public sphere, and about the emergent social topologies they generate.
