The first one with arts administrators I went to for The Thing and left
feeling hopeless for the future except for the smart British woman who
directs Artists Space (I forget her name).

Everyone seemed to be in New York last week (Vuk Cosic and James Stevens
made appearances at The Thing). Unfortunately, I've been exiled to an island
in the Gulf of Mexico for bad behavior so couldn't attend. Glad to hear
Creative Time is involved. They are on the side of the angels.

For some reason I tend to be adopted by Europeans in New York, especially
Germans and Eastern Europeans. Why this happened is the subject of another
thread.

I really liked Eddie and would gladly buy a used car from him. The New York
nonprofit art world lacks people like him because anybody with his abilities
goes into PR work (like Yvonne Force, who has "packaged" Miltos Manetas
among others and recently did a project with Eyebeam) and makes real money.

Since I wasn't invited to participate and so didn't attend any of these
sessions this will be the first time I've read them.

Pamela Jennings posted once a while back and I wanted to delve into her
report. In fact I have it sitting on my desk with lots of notes scribbled in
the margins. The Rockefeller Foundation gave it to me at that meeting with
Eddie Berg.

Oy.

Particular themes from the BALTIC seminar that seem increasingly relevant to
me a year later:

Good points to start with. I'll leave it to you to direct.

The powerbook was stolen, another tale of woe. All the information was
online (http://artnetweb.com/port) until recently when many of the files
were lost when it was switched to a new server. I think I have all the data
on zip but am not in a position to put it back together again at this point.
There is an extensive listserv that documents the planning of PORT as well
as a roundtable after and all the different design strategies, screen shots
and other ephemera. Perhaps it will end up the project of an enterprising
grad student someday.
