How Are We Going To Kill Information?
As probably the most troglodytic of the group (or certainly bottom ranked), I find myself grouping the questions raised into crude categories, two of which (opposed) I just want to briefly mention. The first is form, and I am tremendously excited by the careful thought and attention I find here towards the notion of "emergence." This is a great experiment somewhere between trad. categories of communication and collaboration that will no doubt dwarf my already humbled imagination.
The other question I don't think I've seen directly mentioned (although indirectly in several of Anne's points): the question of death. How are we going to kill information? I really think we need some kind of killer loose in this environment, some mutating principle of destruction, a "Blair Witch" principle. I've never heard of community or art without one. And as a very poor filer, our capacity to archive frightens me as much as our capacity to erase.
Cheers. And thanks again, Joe.
