Proboscis announces a new online publishing series: CULTURAL SNAPSHOTS

CULTURAL SNAPSHOTS are brief cultural analysis documents published
alongside research projects. They are intended to provoke comment and
debate on the contexts in which research by Proboscis is carried out.
CULTURAL SNAPSHOTS is part of Proboscis' SoMa: social matrices think tank

The first in the series is:

A NEW CULTURAL REVOLUTION: pervasive information in the new world order

This essay looks at the impact of the recent attacks in New York &
Washington on the knowledge society and the development of 'convergent'
services as part of a social and cultural response. It proposes the
integration of wireless communications more deeply into Civil Society by
devising civic applications (in addition to existing commercial services)
for the new 'digital commons'.

Subject: Leonardo Book Series Release: Metal and Flesh by Ollivier Dyens

The Leonardo Book Series published by MIT Press is pleased to announce the
release of "Metal And Flesh, The Evolution of Man: Technology Takes Over"
by Ollivier Dyens, translated by Evan J. Bibbee and Ollivier Dyens.

For more than 3,000 years, humans have explored uncharted geographic and
spiritual realms. Present-day explorers face new territories born from the
coupling of living tissue and metal, strange lifeforms that are
intelligent but unconscious, neither completely alive nor dead. Our bodies
are now made of machines, images, and information. We are becoming
cultural bodies in a world inhabited by cyborgs, clones, genetically
modified animals, and innumerable species of human/information symbionts.
Ollivier Dyens’s Metal and Flesh is about two closely related phenomena:
the technologically induced transformation of our perceptions of the world
and the emergence of a cultural biology. Culture, according to Dyens, is
taking control of the biosphere. Focusing on the twentieth century--which
will be remembered as the century in which the living body was blurred,
molded, and transformed by technology and culture--Dyens ruminates on the
undeniable and irreversible human/machine entanglement that is changing
the very nature of our lives. Ollivier Dyens is Assistant Professor of
French at Concordia University in Montreal.

Subject: CULT 2001 - proceedings

The conference CULT 2001 – previously announced at this maillist - was
held in Copenhagen, October 3-5 and turned out to be a very inspiring and
stimulating conference providing participants new perspectives in the
field of digital culture.

Old structural barriers have been transgressed on the cultural scene, due
to the digital economy and the new media strategies. New creative models
of collaboration emerge between institutions preserving cultural heritage,
performing arts creating new expressions, and information technology
providing tools of communication.

The interface between Cultural Heritage, Netart and State of the Art
Projects is new. It is both innovative, challenging and a critical vehicle
for issues concerning collaboration, communication and dissemination
strategies in modern societies.

CULT 2001 established a platform for discussions and reflections on these
new visions of collaboration and dissemination strategies.

 Please feel free to share the inspiration given by the keynotes
and -statements:

  a.. Howard Rheingold, Author of 'The Virtual Community', US
  b.. Hans Siggaard Jensen, Director of research, Learning Lab Denmark, DK
  c.. Terry Eagleton, Professor, University of Manchester, UK

  e.. John Howkins, Chairman, Tornado Productions, UK
  f.. Bruce Royan, Executive Director of SCRAN, UK
  g.. Preben Mejer, TDC, DK
  h.. Björn Norberg, Beeoff/Splintermind, SE

and by more than 30 session speakers, now available as papers and
abstracts in the proceedings of CULT 2001.

You'll find the CULT 2001 conference site via link from frontsite of
www.kulturnet.dk. The proceedings of CULT 2001 are available in pdf-format
and in a few days also in html-format. The proceedings will be available
until the end of this year.

Please find the entire proceedings at the conference site; due to the
bit-weighty size of the complete pdf-format, proceedings have also been
broken down into smaller files. Please feel free to download them

All papers are published according to an understanding with each author;
some are abstracts, some full papers. Please respect the individual

Subject: Any friend of Erik Davis...

is a friend of Hermenaut's.

Perhaps that's going too far. I like Erik and all, but I didn't like how
he accidentally sent my email address to a bunch of people I didn't know.

This morning, however, as I was packing up a shipment of Hermenaut #16 to
send to one of our distributors, I was worrying that we're going to sell
out every single copy of the new issue, leaving us with zero copies to
give away to those with-it, media-literate types for whom we write and
edit Hermenaut. That's what happened with #15, to our chagrin. And that
made me think that I should offer a free copy of #16 -- the "Stockholm
Syndrome" issue, featuring writing by Sam Lipsyte, Keith Gessen, Gavin
McNett, Paul Maliszewski, David Mamet, Lydia Millet, Louis Theroux, and
Hermenaut's regular contributors -- to Erik's friends and acquaintances.

If you've never heard of us, Hermenaut is a journal of philosophy and pop
culture published in Boston, Mass. -- we've been described by Wired
Magazine as "a sounding board for thinking folk who operate outside the
ivory tower," by The American Prospect as "a freelance department of
philosophy," and by the Boston Phoenix as "a refreshing challenge to the
cultural orthodoxy of self-conscious advertising, unexamined hipness, and
empty cynicism."

So, here's the deal. I'll send you a free copy of the new issue (I promise
never to follow up with any salesman-like communications) if you do the
following two things:

1) Tell me a little bit about who you are and what you do.
2) Send me your mailing address.

This is a while-supplies-last kind of thing, so if you're interested,
please get back to me quickly.
