by all acounts the curating new media symposium in
Ottawa presented a successful beginning towards
clarifying some topical issues re Canadian new
media production, distribution and consumption.
"Beginning" is the operative word here. What
constitutes a successful next step for
a productive continuation of such an event - not
only in Canada, but anywhere else as well?
The question is posed for two reasons: both Sarah
and I felt, we would like to continue the discussions
(perhaps in another place, another setting) and
we were contemplating useful future possibilities.
The other reason is my personal experience of
excellent recent new media conferences and
symposiums. With the exception of this list
the enthusiastic atmosphere of the many
events quickly faded away, without much follow
Perhaps knowledgeable people on this list
will have useful comments/ contributions?
