After a period of technical difficulties and uncertainty about its
destiny, the Fibreculture (email) list has been revitalized. Founded
by David Teh and Geert Lovink the list started in January 2001. The
aim of the Fibreculture initiative is to be a platform for critical,
interdisciplinary new media research in Australia. The list soon spun
off a range of activities, from real-life meetings, a website,
publications, and, most significantly, the Fibreculture Journal, which
launched in 2003.
Recent developments such as Conroy’s censorship plans, the new media
stagnation in education, broadband politics and Google’s position in
all this has prompted us to restart the list. The Fibreculture
initiative organized a one day seminar on the censorship plan at the
University of Sydney on December 16, 2009. The Fibreculture Journal is
thriving and there are plans to move into digital publishing.
For the time being there will not be a seperate announcement list but
if traffic will be high, and the desire is there to seperate dialogue
from announcements, this can easily be set up.
Wellcome back, Fibreculture list!
