> In collaboration with NAi Publishers, the INC will publish a series of

> Ned Rossiter (2006), Organised Networks: Media Theory, Creative Labour,
> New Institutions, Rotterdam: NAi Publishers.
> The celebration of network cultures as open, decentralized, and
> horizontal all too easily forgets the political dimensions of labour and
> life in informational times. Organized Networks sets out to destroy
> these myths by tracking the antagonisms that lurk within Internet
> governance debates, the exploitation of labour in the Creative
> Industries, and the aesthetics of global finance capital. Cutting across
> the fields of media theory, political philosophy, and cultural critique,
> Ned Rossiter diagnoses some of the key problematics facing network
> cultures today. Why have radical social-technical networks so often
> collapsed after the party? What are the key resources common to critical
> network cultures? And how might these create conditions for the
> invention of new platforms of organization and sustainability? These
> questions are central to the survival of networks in a post-dotcom era.
> Rossiter unleashes a range of strategic concepts in order to explain and
> facilitate the current transformation of networks into autonomous
> political and cultural “networks of networks”.
> Ned Rossiter is senior lecturer in Media Studies at the Centre for Media
> Research, University of Ulster.
> Geert Lovink, founding director of the INC worked as a research fellow
> at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, where he finished his upcoming
> book titled Zero Comments: Kernels of Critical Internet Culture. Zero
> Comments will be published by Routledge (New York) in 2007.
> Geert Lovink (2007). Zero Comments: Kernels of Critical Internet
> Culture, New York: Routledge.
> In Zero Comments Geert Lovink upgrades worn-out concepts and inquires
> the latest Web 2.0 hype around blogs, wikis and social network sites. In
> this third volume of his studies into critical Internet culture, Lovink
> develops a ‘general theory of blogging.’ Instead of celebrating ‘citizen
> journalism’ blogs are analyzed in their ‘nihilist impulse’ to empty out
> established meaning structures. Blogs bring on decay of the 20st century
> broadcast media, and are proud of their in-crowd mechanism of linking,
> tagging and ranking. The book also deals wit the silent globalization of
> the Net in which no longer the West but countries like India, China and
> Brazil are becoming the main drivers of new media culture. Zero Comments
> upgrades concepts such as global Internet time, tactical media, the
> crisis of new media arts and the problematic relationship between
> architecture and the Net, and ends with speculative notions on concepts
> such as organized networks, free cooperation and distributed aesthetics.
> *4. Netporn talkshows at Impakt Festival

> Realcore is the term journalist, musician and researcher in technology
> Sergio Messina has given to a new genre in online pornography. Realcore

> Sergio Messina is a journalist, musician and internet researcher; he is

> People create their own porn in which desire is more important than
> beauty, and reality is better than artifice. Porn becomes personal.
> ‘Show-n-Tell’ is the creator of Webaffairs, an artistic review of her
> experiences in the world of webcam erotica. She started out as a voyeur,
> but later on became a participant in this digital erotic world. A world

> camera or in chats.
> *5. Incommunicado.05 Documentation
> *Documentation of the Incommunicado conference (June 15-17, 2005) has
> recently been completed and includes audio and video files,

> been produced at INC, including a CD-ROM with 12 hours of interviews
> that were conducted during the event. This publication can be ordered
> free of costs at INC. More information: info(at)networkcultures.org.
