nettime: ?: THE VOICES OF NETTIME


THE VOICES OF NETTIME 

To sell or not to sell(out): creating value in the info economy

a collaborative document for Para-Chute, Canada *

context:
At MF3,in Budapest, one of the main topics was if 'content'
means 'commodification' and how we could conceptualize the
rapid transition into a globalized info-economy in order
to resist AND survive it. Especially what it means
to the self-definition of alternative, independent,
critical or whatever-you-call-it cultural practise
on the net. Of all the changes on the internet in 1996,
the most obvious is 'commercialisation'. What does it mean
to your wishes and plans in the context of our 
'gift-production' on this channel?
There are many alternative models: the paysant market, 
the digital loom, the info-anarchist, the pirate utopia, 
the para.site, market as nature, virtual marxism, 
digital trade unions, tactiques of inversion, networks
of trust, digital cities...

Question: 
In what kind of info economy would you imagine the
digital artisan of today becoming most creative?

Answer: 
1000 characters or less, and your e-mail-address 
(the golden very-cyber-indeed rule)

please send your micro-work to
