Apologies for crossposting...
 
!WSF/WEF GLOBAL SOLIDARITY BROADCAST!
When: January 31st-Feb 5th

The annual meeting of the World Economic Forum is leaving its long
time home in Davos, Switzerland and moving to New York City. If they
thought that the Swiss people gave them a hard time, look out: New
Yorkers will not sit by while the CEO's of the worlds largest
corporations scheme there way to more profit and devastation in the
global economy. 

The rest of the world is gathering in Porto Alegre for the World
Social Forum. Unlike the WEF the WSF brings together a broad section
of civil society, people already working hard to bring about a true
global democracy free from the grip of transnational corporations.
"Another world is possible."

IMC-New York and IMC-Brazil will be broadcasting live from both
events: bringing you the latest on the streets of New York, as well as
the visionary words and ideas of the WSF in Porto Alegre. But what
about the rest of the world?

THE IMC RADIO NETWORK IS ASKING YOU TO HELP!

Organize your local IMC to broadcast programming from your community
for a global solidarity broadcast! How does living in a capitalist
economy degrade local autonomy, community empowerment and grassroots
democracy? How do the actions of transnational corporations
destabilize the local economy, influence local politics and break
established unions? Tech help and free software is available.

HELP BUILD A GLOBAL RADIO BROADCAST!

If you are interested in participating PLEASE ATTEND THIS IRC MEETING!

NEXT IRC MEETING: Saturday, January 12th, 20:00GMT (18:00 DST in
Brazil, 21:00 Mediterranean/continental Europe time, 22:00 Greece,
12:00 Pacific coast USA, 15:00 Atlantic coast USA.

Ongoing organizing is happening on the imc-audio {AT} indymedia.org list
Subscribe at <http://lists.indymedia.org/mailman/listinfo/imc-audio>

What will the Broadcast be like?

We will have live broadcasts scheduled from as many local IMC's as
possible, taking turns broadcasting to the same web stream using the
D.R.O.P. network (Distributed Radio Open Project:
http://radio.us.solipsists.org). The live programming will be archived
and replayed in a play list until the next live broadcast comes on.
Content will be a mix of interviews, news updates, call in's, and
revolutionary music. The broadcast stream will be mirrored by
revolutionary web casters and FM broadcasters around the world. YOU
CAN BE A PARTICIPANT!

- ---------------------------------------------------------------

In order to broadcast Brazil IMC still needs the following items:

~a Pentium II with at least 64Mb of RAM, a CD player and a soundcard

~a Mixing board

CALL FOR PAPERS

Internet Research 3.0: NET / WORK / THEORY
International and Interdisciplinary Conference
of the Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR)
International Institute of INFONOMICS and University of Maastricht

Maastricht, The Netherlands
October 13-16 2002
Conference Website: http://www.aoir.org/2002
Deadline for submissions: February 15, 2002.
Submissions: http://www2.cddc.vt.edu/confman/

The Internet has become an integral, ubiquitous part of everyday life
in many social domains and international contexts. Yet, most of the
public attention on cyberspace remains fueled by utopian or dystopian
visions, rather than being informed by the growing body of research on
the Internet as a complex fact of modern life.
Internet Research (IR) 3.0, an international and interdisciplinary
conference, will feature a variety of perspectives on Internet research,
in order to develop a better theoretical and pragmatic understanding of
the Internet. Building on the previous well-attended international
conferences, the IR 3.0 will bring together prominent scholars,
researchers, and practitioners from many disciplines, fields and countries
for a program of presentations, panel discussions, and informal exchanges.

This year's theme is Net/Work/Theory. Contributors are called to
reflect on how to theorize what we know about the Internet and on how
to apply what we know theoretically in practice. The conference will
be held for the first time in Europe, whose intellectual environments
have traditionally been a source of social and cultural theory.

IR 3.0 will be hosted by the International Institute of Infonomics in
the beautiful city of Maastricht in the Netherlands. As the city in
which one of the key treaties of the European Union was signed,
Maastricht also symbolizes a changing Europe in a changing
international setting. The conference will provide opportunities to
network, learn from other researchers, hear from leading players in
Internet development, and enjoy the "art of fine living" of Maastricht,
in the south of the Netherlands.

The Association of Internet Researchers invites paper, presentation,
and panel proposals from AoIR members and non-members on topics
that address social, cultural, political, economic, and aesthetic
aspects of
the
Internet. We welcome interdisciplinary submissions as well as submissions
from any discipline. Panel presentations that establish connections across
disciplines, institutions, and/or continents are especially encouraged.
We also seek presentations that will make creative use of Internet
technologies and techniques.

SUGGESTED TOPICS:
Theoretical and Methodological approaches to Internet Research
Internet Access, Use and Effects
Psychology and the Internet
Individuals, Groups, and Communities Online
Privacy, Surveillance, and Security on the Internet
Internet Policy, Ethics, Law, and Politics
Teaching, Learning and the Internet
The Internet in Writing and Publishing
Ethnicity, Race, Identity, Gender, and Sexuality Online
The Internet in Cultural Contexts
The Internet in History
Digital Arts and Aesthetics
Gaming on the Internet
E-commerce, E-Business, or Value of Digital Content
New Technologies and New Media
E-Sectors (e-health, e-games, e-entertainment, e-other...)

ART NOW


National Coalition Against Censorship Launches Clearinghouse of Nationwide Artistic Responses to September 11 and Online Discussion Forum Among Artists 




For Immediate Release

New York City, January 3, 2002: The National Coalition Against Censorship's (NCAC) ART NOW web site (www.ncac.org) is being inaugurated several months after the collapse that shook our private and public worlds. ART NOW is an online register of artistic responses to September 11 and its aftermath in different media as they develop from documentations and memorials to critical explorations of the present and imaginary journeys into other lives and possible futures. 

It will certainly take more time to transform the initial shock into art. For the time being, a lot of what we see, hear and read tries to come to terms with the event by representing it, by telling the stories of witnesses of the World Trade Center collapse on September 11. The first reaction is to document - to share photographs, to record people's narratives. Documenting serves to forge a collective memory which is also a collective understanding: when we turn a singular event into a story, we are also helping integrate it into the flow of life, to understand how our lives have changed and, thus, to imagine life after the tragedy. By far the largest proportion of art produced immediately after September 11 has been art of commemoration. We have collected only a selection of commemorative art as it is practically impossible to enumerate all of the street memorial shrines, the photographs and paintings of the Twin Towers, the material bearing witness to the labor of firemen a!
nd rescue workers. 

Several months after the attacks, our country is at war and confronting world re-defining political issues. We believe that, besides commemoration, besides the solace provided by beauty, besides the escape of quiet and stately museum spaces, art can offer a greater understanding of ourselves and others, a heightened awareness of daily life, and a necessary political critique. Art can free our perception of set patterns and allow us to see the present differently as well as to imagine alternative futures. 

The National Coalition Against Censorship's ART NOW web site contains information about concrete responses to the attacks and their aftermath from artists, curators, writers, musicians, and filmmakers, as well as performance spaces, museums and art-related web sites. We are adding projects daily and still looking for work that provides a perspective on the current state of the world as defined by recent events in the United States, Asia, and the Middle East. 

The ART NOW Discussion Forum is concurrently hosting a conversation among artists on the ethical, political and historical aspects of creative expression in times of crisis. Live debates -- on issues of sensitivity and appropriateness, free expression and political critique, and the relevance of art now -- have been much bolder in the strength and diversity of opinions expressed than what has appeared as opinion articles in the press. With this online forum we want to bring the boldness and freedom of live dialogue to a space which crosses state and national lines and engages people of all backgrounds in a free conversation about things that matter to us. Please join us in this conversation by posting your own thoughts and questions on the discussion forum (www.ncac.org/discus). 

And please tell us about your projects - even if they are in the planning stage, even if they are just concepts. This might be a way to find others who will collaborate with you and help you bring your ideas to life. To let us know about your project, contact Rebecca Metzger. Phone: 212.807.6222 x16 / Fax: 212.807.6245 / E-mail: rmetzger {AT} ncac.org. 

The National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) is an alliance of 51 national non-profit organizations, including religious, educational, professional, artistic, labor, and civil rights groups, committed to defending freedom of thought, inquiry, and expression.

Subject: One World: ICTs and NGOs in Southeast Europe (announcement)

From: "OneWorld.net" <media {AT} oneworld.net>
Sent: Saturday, January 12, 2002 4:55 AM

Supporting Democracy, Civil Society and Peace:
ICTs and NGOs in Southeast Europe

OneWorld report released

OneWorld www.oneworld.net, the online human rights and sustainable
development network, and the Information Program of the Open Society
Institute (OSI) www.osi.hu, have released a report on the use of ICTs
(information and communication technologies) by non-governmental
organisations (NGOs) in Southeast Europe www.oneworld.net/radio/see/ict.

Southeast Europe was at the forefront of progressive use of new
communication technologies in the 1990s. Examples include the bulletin
boards of ZaMir Transitional Network that brought together anti-war and
human rights groups when traditional communications had been destroyed or
disrupted. During the Kosovo crisis, web-based databases assisted in
reconnecting separated families from displaced populations. In Yugoslavia,
Radio B92 famously took to broadcasting over the Internet when Milosevic's
regime sought to silence oppositional voices.

Branislava Milosevic, OneWorld co-ordinator for Southeast Europe says: "The
wars and social unrest in the region led civil society to innovate around
uses of the Internet to help address urgent needs such as fighting
censorship and human rights abuses. Now, in a post-conflict situation, NGOs
in Southeast Europe need the Internet to re-establish ties broken by war -
both in the region and with the rest of the world."

The report, covering six geographical areas (Albania, Bosnia, Croatia,
Kosovo, Macedonia, and Yugoslavia), is the most comprehensive study to date
of the status of ICTs among NGOs in the region. One of the key findings is
that groundbreaking ICT practices have rarely been sustained as crises have
waned. The report calls for a renewed effort to ensure civil society can
fully realize the benefits of ICTs to meet the challenges the region now
faces in the transition to democracy.

In addition to country profiles, the report details:

· regional ICT capacity, online presence and NGO use of the Internet
· local and regional/international networking between civil society groups,
the media, private sector and government
· ICT use in specific sectors (e.g. media, human rights, women, environment
and AIDS)
· factors impacting on the future development of ICTs (connectivity,
sustainability and donor patterns)
· current NGO support needs (e.g. training and potential projects)

OneWorld and the Information Program of OSI have made the report available
to assist NGOs in their Internet strategies and also to influence decision
makers - such as international organisations, foreign donors and national
governments - to recognize the continued importance of ICTs for NGOs and
wider civil society in Southeast Europe, particularly their role in ensuring
the region's peace.
