the idea is to run it through moderation, somehow the intention is 
not so much to just explore the wideness of the net, but to focus on 
meaningfull critique of the given text,  using the media 
possibilities at the same time. This sound contradictory enough 
doesn't it?
I just had, and to me this seems like a great piece of work. It needs 
some updating, obviousely, but in essence it is a far more advanced 
techno-job then this net.weight. The difference is in this 
far-reaching concept that I do not seem to be having in my little 
project. Of course, it is on hmbleness and private optics that I am 
building the network of trust that is for me the only possible glue 
to keep collective creative teams together, or any kind of teams if 
you wish.  Nettime seems like a good example.

I am actualy just surfing (ha? what a word, still no better one) it, 
and it is early to say. 
Aha, the submiting of texts is clear to me now, it is well done too.
I have to see how many people will react to the invitation, and to 
the given text.... 

Hey, thank you Julila for the link here, it will be of great help as 
historical reference, 
did you think of contributing to net.weight?
