Netsong is the song of the web, as performed by a web search engine
robot - the latest in self-replicating net technology.  Tune in live
to the Voice of the Web!

When provided a searchterm, the netsong bot will search for this term
in a search engine, then choose a page from the search results and begin
following links from that page. It will continue to follow links from the
resulting pages indefinitely, backing up and rerouting if it hits a dead end.
Happily gathering text from each page it visits, the netsong bot
savors the unique lyricality and poignant narrative of the web and begins to
sing it. Not content to merely surf the information
superhighway, the netsong bot makes it music.

Netsong: Pure -  100% Native-net programming.

Netsong is by Amy Alexander (, Multi-Cultural Recycler)

Subject: office/gallery (exhibit) 2/12 to 4/13

For immediate release:

“… the Measure of All Things.”
by appointment only showings!
February 12th to April 13th

“…the Measure of All Things.” encompasses the work of
five artists dealing with society’s relationship to
statistics and taxonomies.  The office/gallery is
located in the corporate offices on the 17th floor of
a downtown San Francisco location.  “…the Measure of
All Things.” will be on display at the office/gallery
from February 12th through April 13th.  Artists
contributing to the show are: bay area artists, Renee
Shearer, Gail Wight, and Allison Shields, along with
Portland based Peter McCleery, and Philadelphia based
Stephen Cartwright.

“We religiously watch the Dow and the Nasdaq rise and
fall as indicators of our economy, our retirement
schedules, and moreover our competitive relationship
to one another,” explains Sean A. Fletcher, the
current resident of the office/gallery and curator of
…the Measure of All Things .  “The last decade,
wrapped in the paper of progressive idealism,
witnessed a strange new ideology dubbed by Thomas
Frank as ‘day-trading liberalism’ where the
conversation in bohemian coffee houses took the form
of speculative stock tips and comparative performance
figures.  Instead of smoking cigarettes and denouncing
the bourgeois, this new breed of hipsters asked if
Phillip Morris was a part of the other’s stock
portfolio, and if they were able to ‘get into Cisco
Systems before it went up.’  But more than tracking
stocks as an indicator of our contemporary prowess, we
spent our time constantly weighing ourselves.  We
counted our calories, we tracked our mileage, and we
logged our appointments.  We jotted things down in our
palm-held devices and tried like hell to get the most
out of our days.” 

…the Measure of All Things. takes a break to assess
the maddening Scylla of statistical responsibility in
our epic adventure of The Daily Routine.  Allison
Shields tracks her every residence from birth to Today
complete with address and zip-code and presents them
mailing-label-ready in a subtle framed work that
craftily blends into its office surroundings.  In
another piece she catalogues all of her belongings by
color-coding them according to her relationship to
them “as of May 14, 1999.”  These figures are then
presented in tabular format and charted in a columnar
graph.  By careful analysis of her “dishes, old
photos, and extra vitamins” she presents, by volume,
the commodities she owns anywhere from being a
“precious treasure”, or “hypothetically useful”, to
finally a “burden.”

In Self-criticizing Artwork, Peter McCleery has
assembled various barometers to measure such obtuse
notions as our complexity, our beauty, our poignancy,
and our profundity.  Like some ultra-truth-seeking
love tester, to stand before these various dials is to
bear narcissistic wonder as to whether the moisture
produced by our bodies can actually be used to measure
“physicality” (for example) – then, immediately
presses the envelope of statistical usefulness as the
psyche begins to process this data.

The office/gallery is a *by appointment only* location
operated covertly in the local downtown offices of a
national Life Insurance and Financial Services
corporation.  The office/gallery is currently in its
second year of operations.

The office/gallery also sponsors bi-monthly events in
its recently renovated 18th floor “training room”.
Patrons to the office/gallery are encouraged to
inquire about the upcoming lecture event in March
corresponding with … the Measure of All Things art

Please call (415) 733-6574 for more information and
availability before visiting the office/gallery at 111
Sutter Street on the 17th floor.  Email the
office/gallery at or visit
the website at 

NOTE:  Because of the covert nature of the space,
please do not arrive unexpected, and please direct all
written correspondence to: administrative
office/gallery, care of: Sean A. Fletcher, 2934 Ford
Street, Unit 19, Oakland, CA  94601.  Thank you for
your cooperation.

Subject: Sarai Opening Program 

From: "Sarai Media Programme" <>
Sent: Wednesday, February 14, 2001 3:14 AM

The formal public opening of Sarai is scheduled for February 23rd 2001. This
event will mark a decisive
moment in the first phase of the activities of the Sarai New Media
Initiative at the Centre for the Study of
Developing Societies, Delhi.
While the inauguration will be the first major interface between the Sarai
project and a wider public, it will
also embody and present the work that has been initiated and in process at
Sarai, since the project's inception in
August 2000.

The festive three-day programme will include presentations, informal
workshops, screenings, lectures and
panel discussions on old & new media and urban culture. The event will
feature encounters and dialogue
between media practitioners, scholars and activists, from India and abroad,
around the theme of "The Public
Domain". The Sarai Website and Interface will be launched and a Sarai Reader
on the Public Domain will be

This thematic focus on the Public Domain has been chosen to highlight
Sarai's engagement with the foundation
of a vibrant and democratic public culture in India at the interstices and
intersections of old and new media
practices. We choose to characterize the 'Public Domain' as that arena of
public activity, interaction and
cultural practice that is, or aspires to be, autonomous of the regulation of
the state and the pressures of the
marketplace, and that is conducive towards collaborative & hybrid practices,
and the free expression and
exchange of ideas across cultural & professional boundaries.

The thematic focus on the ?Public Domain? will be translated into a cluster
of activities that taken together
with the above presentations will constitute the inauguration of Sarai.
These will be:

A Round Table on the Public Domain
A Seminar/Presentation on City Spaces and the Cinema
A Panel Discussion on City & Social Justice
Presentations of International Contemporary Multimedia Practice and Digital
A Focus Group Discussion on Media & Communication Rights
Panel Discussions on the Cultures of the Public Domain in the New Media
Presentation/Workshop on Free Software Resources for Media Practice
The City in Contemporary Hindi Writing: Recitations by Writers and Poets
 Discussion on Globalisation & New Cultural Realities (Hindi Panel)
Art and Video Installations

Panelists/Speakers Include :

Subject: Analyzing the Human Genome

Chromosome 22--Alternative Analysis of the Human Genome

What does the genome mean? Rival groups‹corporate and academic‹will offer
the first interpretations of the human genome this Thursday, February 15,
2001. Not, however, without dispute; neither can agree about the best
strategy for decoding.  In anticipation of this event, we wish to offer
another version.  

As nature and culture, technology and biology, are integrated in the
methods, practices, and metaphors of modern molecular biology, we need new
tools to engage in other interpretations.  Other maps to ourselves.  This
project will provide users with numerous other ways to organize and
understand how genes result from a set of social relations, personal
practices, and technical practices. This project re/produces these
interactions in a manner that the user can negotiate, to create a
multiplicity of mappings of biological knowledge.

We will also offer news updates, and full coverage of this event.  This
material will be available for immediate commentary and response as part of
our own ecological feedback project.

Please participate. Welcome to Chromosome 22 : .

Subject: new member intro

hello listers!

i am a new subscriber and i'm writing first of all to greet everyone on the list a very happy valentine's day and, secondly, to announce my presence on the list.  i decided to join after browsing the december archives because i have recently developed a keen interest in the (some would say hopelessly lost) cause of new media literacy, in particular, internet literacy.  i think this is a critical thinking skill that the younger generation desperately needs to hone but is sadly underrated.  this new project of mine came about after much reflection and (way too much) time spent in bed (incapacitated) recuperating from ankle surgery.  anyway, enough about me... 

if anyone on the list knows of links to reputable sites devoted to new media literacy, please don't hesitate to post them.

thank you!
