NetBehaviour is back online! ⁄⁄

Website: www.Netbehabiour.org
Location: online

Outline:

After the recent enforced break (due to trubble at the Furtherfield server (now fixed)) we have moved over to Mailman.

This means that we now have:

- an automatic subscribe and unsubscribe function

- the option to receive mails in a digest format

- a subject header to allow us to filter our list mails

- an automatic online archive of all mails – http://www.netbehaviour.org/pipermail/netbehaviour/

We hope that this new, more robust software will make it easier for us all to collaborate in creating NetBehaviour.

One of the NetBehaviour elements most missed by the Furtherfield team has been the List Residencies. We`d like to kick these off again as soon as possible, so volunteer yourself or another likely candidate. Lewis Lacook and Jason Nelson have already been voted for, so if either of you would like to kick off, don`t hold back :-)

About NetBehaviour List Residencies

An in-house, networked artist/curator/writer residency built by users of the NetBehaviour list lasting for 2 weeks where a practicioner`s work is seen, as part of the list experience, adding a different kind of authentic `stuff` to the list- exploring more than debate alone, through behaviour.

Brief info about Residencies: -

- Residencies last for 2 weeks

- Maximum size of image per post- 35k

- Maximum number of posts – every six hours

- Minimum nuber of posts – one a day

Any member on the list can suggest a potential resident artist.

The list members vote for a resident – it only takes 7 yes votes… but if there are 8 votes against, the residency does not happen for that individual/group.

Rules change and adapt according to suggestions by NetBehaviourists – active list members:-)

Documentation of the first residency can be viewed on the Netbehaviour website http://www.netbehaviour.org/bradbrace.html. There is still some work to be done documenting Mez and Ivan Pope`s residencies but from now on we have a better process for doing this.
