Further information

<nettime> is a way to reach a large group of active cultural producers. We try to always keep discussions constructive and enlightening. <nettime> is committed to long-form discussion, but you can also use it as a forwarding channel, a social text filter, for your own texts, found texts, requests, and (to a limited degree) announcements.

If you are unsure whether something might be appropriate, look through the archives at <https://nettime.org/Lists-Archives/> to get a sense of the list's range since its inception. Feel free to invite new subscribers if you think they'd be interested.

nettime-l is not just a mailing list but an effort to formulate an international, networked discourse that neither promotes a dominant euphoria (to sell products) nor continues the cynical pessimism, spread by journalists and intellectuals in the 'old' media who generalize about 'new' media with no clear understanding of their communication aspects. we have produced, and will continue to produce books, readers, and web sites in various languages so an 'immanent' net critique will circulate both on- and offline.

nettime-l is slightly moderated.
