i had been holding off a response in the hope that some other voices
would add to the discussion.

it takes about the same time to post a response to this list, as it
does to join the dance tech (ning) network. there are 33 members there
already (still growing), and this list remains quite quiet.


that seems a response in itself ...

simon makes a good suggestion below, i would suggest alternate months
for a theme to give space for more open, emergent discussion. perhaps
also that the themes could relate to recent conferences from time to
time. to extend and expand the discussion.

yes i am willing to make / offer time - but it does not really seem
that people want such discussion on this list.

Hi Simon

i'm not sure if you were wanting this message to goto the list, but
ishas not. anyhow, i'll reply to you personally.

no, i wasn't offering to run a monthly theme, but simply pointing
tosomething johannes had said. i want to see if there are any other
responses on the list before making any offers ... it does not seem
clear as yet what the community wants. [...]

Hi Matt

If you like you can forward my message to the list, although it
doesn'treally matter. Main thing is you read it. [...] Perhaps a
monthly rotating editor/moderator would be a good idea, a different
theme each time, selectedby a self-selecting editorial oversight group
of list members. Anybody whowants to be, and has the time to be, a
member of this group could be amember. We would want to avoid
heirarchies. [...]
