NO and NO

Pigeon holes are created together with categories to segment and make
compartments out of knowledge and people, they are not inherently
systemic, or rather they are but to what cause? In the same way as
customising news channels really really pisses me off, for the same reason
for which specialisation in early education ennoyed me in school , I think
that this idea is absolutely out of the question. My brain does not have
litle compartments. Besides the war can't neatly and should not neatly be
seperated from anything else whether this is media-discources or ....
everyday life and if it can that says more about poeples lives than the
war. If poeple are not inteligent enough to make connections between the
knowledges in question this is not a reason to create compartments but
rather to disolve things read and stop searching for boundaries that make
them feel safe. 

this kind of reminds me of going to academic conferences and always being
taken to the room with the "others" , that have a common "third world"
strategy to plan, the "others" include the predictable majority which I
would hope feels the same way about this ( not that I am making claims). 

To put it very buntly : Nettime is doing more than fine and so is the war!
