[Nettime-bold] XOBJECTS <Drop In Center> : Friday 18:00 GMT

XOBJECTS <Drop In Center>
18:00-20.30 | Friday 23rd June
Lux Center | Hoxton Square| London |UK.
XOBJECTS is a new research group dedicated to developing innovative analyses
of information technology and networks. The group seeks to use its findings
in helping industry, government and the NGO sector to strategise their
activities on the net and over other networks. It also seeks to promote a
programme of structured critical thinking about the net which might underwrite
European online activity, and perhaps counter-balance the neo-libertarian
projects of the US.

Currently in its first year, XOBJECTS is looking for new members to help it
begin working towards these goals. If you would like to take part
in, or help organise, regular seminars and workshops, and are interested in
being part of a strong forum for thinking radically about networks, we want
to speak to you. We also want to speak to programmers, theorists, venture
capitalists, writers, artists, designers, academics, architects and anyone
else who thinks they might bring something useful to discussions on the
medium to long term future of the net.

The XOBJECTS <Drop In Center> is designed to introduce possible contributors
and members to the project and to answer any questions they may have about
it. Our website [www.xobjects.net] will be available for reference on three web
terminals, and an XOBJECTS representative will be on hand to field enquiries
and take down your particulars. There will also be a chance to add your ideas to the 'X
RULES FOR THE NEW ECONOMY' survey. Bring an idea to write up on the board!

[XOBJECTS is a non-affiliated, independent research body. For more
information, or if you are unable to visit the Drop In Center,
