Re: <nettime> net multiculturalism and net arts - a proposal

Net culture into net cultures??? Sure, maybe that would be a good and

BUT-- it seems like recent traffic on this list would benefit
infinitely more from some agreement on just what the hell "left" and
"right" mean. So. . . the solution is "lefts" and "rights"???
