Submissions are open for Fibreculture's special edition of
M/C - a journal of media and culture:   F  I  B  R  E

=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=

F I B R E

FIBRE is the tension between material and abstract. It names a tissue
composed of threads, but it also denotes 'roughage' - something that
can't be broken down any further - a dietary connotation for both body
and mind; and a moral association - integrity or backbone. FIBRE is
where flows meet resistance.

The strength and properties of invisible connections will determine the
cohesion or resistance of FIBRE, and its wider fabrics - economic,
social, cultural. The connective tissue rearranges geographies,
re-wiring the categories of urban and regional, of global and local.
Information reaches the speed of light - but it meets resistance
nonetheless, in the fibre and the fabric.

As the filaments are invested with value they also become a new
political terrain to be fought over, where control, ownership,
and dominance are up for grabs. FIBRE is a fulcrum of post-industrial
economic change, where public utility gives way to private corporation,
where citizen is re-cast as shareholder, customer, end-user. And yet,
only 3% of global network capacity is being used. In 'dark fibre' lies
the potential energy of networked multitudes.

** The editors of this special ::fibreculture:: edition of M/C are
seeking papers that take up the philosophy, politics and cultures of
networks. Suggested topics include:

. politics of bandwidth and access, broadband policy, Telstra, etc
. the problematics of 'content' in digital media;
. wired-writing – email, listserves, threads and weblogs;
. P2P and other alternative forms of exchange;
. theorisations of 'platform' and convergence in cultural production;
. info-merciality and info-tainment;
. sub-cultural and counter-cultural access to fibre; 'war-chalking';
. micro-politics and community networking, weaving local fabrics;
. impact of the dotcom crash; loss of collective 'web' imaginary;
. fibre-dreaming; philosophies of fibre; digital materiality;
. archaeologies of networks, from copper to photonics;
. from PC to wireless and mobile technologies, a cultural shift?
. network space-time in old and new media; TV after the Net;


deadline for submissions: 23 JUNE 03
article length: 1000-1500 words

An open peer-review process will take place on the
Fibreculture listserve commencing 23 MAY 03.
review cells will be finalised shortly. If you'd like to
take part as a reader, please email me ASAP.

Please note that draft submissions for open review will
need to be received by the end of May.

We look forward to hearing from you.

#  Photostatic Retrograde Archive, simply let us know and we will remove
#  your name from the mailing list.

now available for download, retrograde release no. 18, may 2003:

PhonoStatic 33' Cassette

description: http://psrf.detritus.net/vi/k9/index.html

(direct download of  13 ogg vorbis file available on above link)

Description. "Concurrencies."  Forming a matched set with its (not 
yet available) predecessor, the Concurrencies cassette compilation 
proposal asked for works that especially emphasized layered sound, 
multiple tracks working together simultaneously in time. Of course, 
such a broadly defined scope of interest could include a rather large 
fraction of all recorded works. In our defense, we can only say that 
the notion of using "themes" in constructing our releases had, by 
this time grown tiresome. Most of the submissions did not follow any 
kind of theme anyway; even so, it was always possible to make 
something unified out of the submissions at hand. The present title 
is no exception. The PhonoStatic regulars are all present; X.Y. Zedd 
springs forth with three pieces; The Tape-beatles offer up two. (In 
the interest of full disclosure, this writer is and was then a member 
of that group.) Son of Spam comes forth with a memorable opening 
track, and Semantics Could Vanish appear in the guise of yet another 
slightly altered project name (beginning much earlier in the decade 
as "Two Dogs in Paris"). Plucked directly from the international mail 
stream are works, too, by a handful of mail artists; these include 
Malok, I.M.I. (or Pascal Uni), and MoriArty (whose 14-minute opus is 
the longest segment on the comp). Audio works by veteran zinesters, 
Petrisko, Miskowski, and Winkler, members of a triumvirate based in 
Arizona's urban centers, each offer up one of their audiotape musings.

Contributors include. Son of Spam, The Tape-beatles, X.Y. Zedd, P. 
Petrisko, Jr., Semantics Could Vanish, Malok, Mike Miskowski and Dave 
Williams, I.M.I., MoriArty and Chris Winkler

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde Archive serves as an 
electronic repository for a complete collection of PhotoStatic 
Magazine, PhonoStatic Cassettes, Retrofuturism, and Psrf, (as well as 
related titles). Issues are posted as PDF files, at more or less 
regular intervals, in reverse chronological order to form a 
chronological mirror image of the original series. When the first 
issue, dating from 1983, is finally posted in several year's time, 
then this electronic archive will be complete.

Subject: DANNY SCHECHTER WAGES A MULTI-MEDIA "MEDIA WAR" (announcement)

April 25, 2003

"NEWS DISSECTOR" DANNY SCHECHTER WAGES A MULTI-MEDIA "MEDIA WAR"
ON IRAQ COVERAGE WITH NEW BOOK, RAP CD, AND TV SHOW

MEDIACHANNEL.ORG FOUNDER/CRITIC AVAILABLE FOR
INTERVIEWS/MEDIA APPEARANCES

Dear journalist, producer, and booker:

Media coverage of this war has become as controversial as many aspects of
the war itself. How accurate is the picture we are getting on TV and in the
press despite the bravery and even sacrifice of many journalists embedded
with the troops? What are the instances of false reports, inaccurate
impressions and misleading stories? What is being reported in other
countries that American are not hearing or seeing? Are journalists being
targeted?

These are just some of the questions addressed by media critic Danny
Schechter, known as "the News Dissector," who indicts the "patriotic
correctness' of much of the coverage. Schechter brings an insider's
experience to his outsider's perspective. A CNN and ABC News veteran, he
writes a 3000 word weblog daily about media issues and the media coverage of
the war for MediaChannel.org the world's largest online media issues
network, a global website he edits. (See:
http://www.mediachannel.org/weblog)

Schechter, a former radio newscaster and talk show host, is a lively guest
on radio and TV outlets. He is well informed, articulate and at time
combative. He has appeared recently on CNN, NPR, BBC, CBC, German TV, and
many local radio and TV outlets. He has also been interviewed by leading
newspapers in the US, Europe, Africa and The Middle East.

"I am a media person who knows the media well because I have worked for over
30 years for print outlets, radio, local TV, cable news and network
programs, " he says. "I am not a media basher but a media person who thinks
we can and should be doing much better to serve our callings and the truth."

Danny Schechter's timely new book comments on coverage issues. Titled MEDIA
WARS: News at a Time of Terror, is out this month from Rowman & Littlefeld
Publishers. He will be speaking on campuses and media forums on the issues
it raises coast to coast.

Schechter has also collaborated on an unusual critical rap song/collage of
the TV coverage set to music based on "Media Wars' with musician Polar
Levine of Polarity1. He calls it a companion "soundtrack to the book."

He has also produced a half-hour Mediachannel.org Television show which airs
on World Link television. The program features interviews on media coverage
and a report from the United Nations Security Council.

Excerpts from this unusual CD "soundtrack" and TV program will enhance any
Schechter TV or radio interview.

Danny Schechter, known as the "News Dissector" has written five books
including "The "More You Watch, The Less You Know" (Seven StoriesPress) and
"News Dissector" (Akashic Books) on media issues. He was an Emmy
award-winning producer at ABC News 20/20 and part of the start-up team at
CNN. A Nieman Fellow in Journalism at Harvard, he is a filmmaker, TV
producer and well-known advocate for media reform. He also writes for
newspapers and magazines and was a radio news director and talk show host
for a decade on WBCN in Boston.

Subject: M/C: 'share' issue now online

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - 3 May 2003

                         M/C - Media and Culture
    is proud to present issue two in volume six of the award-winning

                               M/C Journal
                  http://journal.media-culture.org.au/

               'share' - Edited by Axel Bruns & Alex Burns

As we move into the information age, the network society, some see us also
as turning into a culture of collectors, a society of sharers. Electronic
information, especially once it is networked, is easy to copy, simple to
share, and seems to invite collaborative engagement; this leads to the
emergence of filesharing services and open source software development.
Financially, ever more people are hoping to share in the commercial
successes of the listed companies whose stocks they own, but all too often
find themselves sharing predominantly their losses.

On a wider and more fundamental level, offline, public, physical resources
also need to be shared more effectively: as we exploit our reserves of
natural fuels and foods more rapidly than we can replenish them, we attempt
to find ways to achieve sustainability. And on the sociopolitical level,
too, moves are underway to share the load of governance, administration,
and jurisdiction through shared transnational organisations ranging from
the UN to the International Court of Justice.

What is also becoming obvious, however, is that some are better at
sharing than others. Along with the invitation to share more effectively
comes the reflex to hold on to one's own property even more stubbornly.
Whole industries are now devoted to the development of patents for
inventions that are yet to be made, in order to extract immense fees from
anyone wanting to share these ideas; countries like Australia and the US
have atrocious records when it comes to fairly sharing and responsibly
sustaining the world's natural resources; and in the networked
environment, intellectual property has now assumed almost mythical status -
central to one's success, but difficult to grasp, and almost impossible to
protect. Is sharing the answer or the problem: does it open new
possibilities for a better, fairer future, or does it destroy existing
structures to leave nothing but an uncontrollable mess?

The articles in this issue address a wide range of these issues. We invite
you to share the insights of our contributors!

From: "LEONARDO (mk)" <isast {AT} well.com>
Subject: Arts Lab Report Released


PRESS RELEASE 5/5/03
Leonardo/ISAST "Arts Lab" Report Released
for Community Discussion and Debate
http://www.artslab.net

A study released today proposes innovative new approaches and models for art
and technology institutions. The study, sponsored by Leonardo/ISAST and
funded by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, assesses the current
international landscape, lessons learned from recent programs, and new
opportunities that would allow art and technology development in a viable
and sustainable way.

"Arts Lab," proposes a unique hybrid art center and research lab designed to
be "fast, competitive, market-savvy, and not-for-profit." Its goal is to be
financially sustainable with little compromise of artistic or research
values. "Can it work?" asks the Arts Lab website, where researchers and
students have been accumulating data since last September.

"Almost" answers project director Michael Naimark. "Several unique
opportunities exist for supporting tech-based art, such as commercializing
invention and tapping a new generation of sponsors and collectors," Naimark
explains. "But having art and research 100% dependent on the commercial
marketplace misses even larger opportunities. There are examples in Europe,
Japan and Canada where a dose of public or not-for-profit support leverages
more ambitious things to happen, both culturally and commercially. Almost
nothing like these exist for tech-based art in the US."

Naimark, who spent 7 months last year in Japan, has since visited eight
European cities plus several in Canada and the US to visit art centers with
an interest in technology and research labs with an interest in art. "They
come from different pasts and have different cultures," he said. "Also,these
are particularly challenging times in terms of the economy. Everyone seems
excited about the future but uncertain about the present."

"We've decided to make Naimark's report available online immediately," says
Leonardo Executive Editor Roger Malina. "It's very timely, and we feel this
is the time to rethink what works and what doesn¹t. This report will
encourage healthy discussion and debate. Naimark has written it from the
perspective of an artist and researcher who has worked within several of the
key institutions in the field. His conclusions are based on this
experience."

"Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Money: Technology-Based Art and the Dynamics of
Sustainability," a 40 page report, is now available at
http://www.artslab.net

Leonardo/ISAST, whose publications are published in partnership with MIT
Press, promotes the work of artists involved in contemporary science and
technology and seeks to stimulate innovative work between artists,
scientists and engineers. For further information, please see

Subject: AfterMath: Unanswered Questions from 9/11 (video/DVD by GNN)

NOW AVAILABLE ON VHS (DVD AVAILABLE IN JUNE)

With the ongoing confusion over who should lead the federal probe into the
Sptember 11 terrorist attacks, Guerilla News Network decided to pre-empt he
government and produce its own version of a 'truth commission' with:

AfterMath: Unanswered Questions from 9/11

Narrated by Hip Hop legend Paris and featuring interviews shot by GNN
syndicate producers in six cities, AfterMath features nine (9) people
answering eleven (11) of the most pressing questions that emanate from the
terrible and, as yet, unexplained, events of that day. As you will see,
these are questions that continue to overshadow and critically challenge the
official 'version' of the story.

Unanswered Question # 1
To what extent should airlines have been prepared for 9/11?

Unanswered Question # 2
What did the Bush administration know and when?

Unanswered Question # 3
Why wasn't the US military able to intercept the hijacked planes?

Unanswered Question # 4
How did the administration respond to the failures of the military and
Intelligence agencies on 9/11?

Unanswered Question #5
What ties, if any, did the US government and Intelligence agencies have with
the terrorists or their supporters?

Unanswered Question # 6

Subject: M/C: Call for Papers for the 'fibre' issue

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - 5 May 2003

                          M/C - Media and Culture
            is calling for contributors to the 'fibre' issue of

                                M/C Journal
                     http://www.media-culture.org.au/

The award-winning M/C Journal is looking for new contributors. M/C is a
crossover journal between the popular and the academic, and a blind- and
peer-reviewed journal.

find out how and in what format to contribute your work, visit
<http://www.media-culture.org.au/submission.html>. 

    Call for Papers: 'fibre' - a collaboration with :: fibreculture ::

FIBRE is the tension between material and abstract. It names a tissue
composed of threads, but it also denotes 'roughage' - something that can't
be broken down any further - a dietary connotation for both body and mind;
and a moral association - integrity or backbone. FIBRE is where flows meet
resistance.

The strength and properties of invisible connections will determine the
cohesion or resistance of FIBRE, and its wider fabrics - economic, social,
cultural. The connective tissue rearranges geographies, re-wiring the
categories of urban and regional, of global and local. Information reaches
the speed of light - but it meets resistance nonetheless, in the fibre and
the fabric.

As the filaments are invested with value they also become a new political
terrain to be fought over, where control, ownership, and dominance are up
for grabs. FIBRE is a fulcrum of post-industrial economic change, where
public utility gives way to private corporation, where citizen is re-cast
as shareholder, customer, end-user. And yet, only 3% of global network
capacity is being used. In 'dark fibre' lies the potential energy of
networked multitudes.

** The editors of this special ::fibreculture:: edition of M/C Journal are
seeking papers that take up the philosophy, politics and cultures of
networks. Suggested topics include:

. politics of bandwidth and access, broadband policy, Telstra, etc
. the problematics of 'content' in digital media;
. wired-writing - email, listserves, threads and weblogs;
. P2P and other alternative forms of exchange;
. theorisations of 'platform' and convergence in cultural production;
. info-merciality and info-tainment;
. sub-cultural and counter-cultural access to fibre; 'war-chalking';
. micro-politics and community networking, weaving local fabrics;
. impact of the dotcom crash; loss of collective 'web' imaginary;
. fibre-dreaming; philosophies of fibre; digital materiality;
. archaeologies of networks, from copper to photonics;
. from PC to wireless and mobile technologies, a cultural shift?
. network space-time in old and new media; TV after the Net;
