And what a light with which to begin 2007!

Thank you Jon and Bruce, and thanks to everyone who joined in this
wandering, speculative, informed, enlightening, frightening, and uplifiting
consideration of the state of things.

Safe travels, Bruce.

And, of course, we'll leave the doors open here for conversation to continue
as long as the conversants conspire to make it so.

New Media and Social Memory

Jan. 18, 2007??The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is
proud to present New Media & Social Memory, a public symposium to
discuss strategies for preserving digital art at a time when digital
technologies are evolving and becoming obsolete at an astonishingly
rapid pace. 

While focussing on digital art, the symposium will also address larger
concerns about the long-term conservation of our increasingly digital
culture, including how we decide what digital content - from Web sites
to video games - are worth saving. The full day of presentations and
panel discussions by leading experts in the field of digital
preservation will be held in the museum theater on Thursday, Jan. 18.
This symposium is open to the public free of charge; however, due to
limited space, online registration is required.

<Open-source is commons. Commons is persistent and beloved, but it's
not doing all that great.>

It's kicking our ass in Baghdad. If it works in war, I have a hard
time understanding why it won't work in other endeavors as well.
Perhaps it only works when a bunch of little people get pissed off and
decide victory is more important than profit, I don't know.
