i am personally not too convinced or at least sceptical about how well
node.london has worked. and i think its a good example of "open source
model (as in software)" doesn't really work in general creative
collaborations.

i mean, when it first started in 2006, it gathered a lot of momentum under
the name of "open organisation/collaboration/source". but then it kind of
died down completely. it is now more or less a place where people use its
name to announce events and make some kind of node.l event calender.

take a quick look at the node.l's peope page:

http://nodel.org/people.php

i would be very interested to know how many artists on that list are
actually collaborating/organising through node.l. from the ones that i
know, i would guess not that many.

of course, i could be completely wrong, and would be happy to be corrected:)

cheers
