Here's a discussion looking for a home. The idea is to have
the discussion involving USENET itself in alt.cyberspace,
and the summaries of what's been said in various forums in
alt.isea. The discussion is supposed to start 2 November
(Monday) and run up to and through a conference in Sydney
they following week. Sort of international performance art.

Just to make it more amusing, my contributions will be coming from
Italy for the next week. Anna Couey conned me into this by saying
I could put "artist" on my resume....

I think the idea is perfect. The best home for a discussion of USENET is here.
This is where we are forming the leadership of the next revolution. I'm in
