I feel that it would make sense to respond timely to the announcement  
with an open letter to the Guardian undersigned by those interested,  
that would form the basis for some sort of consortium of  
organisations, groups and artists that could have a more direct  
collective voice and conversation with the Arts Council around policy  
and frameworks for supporting digital practice and new media practice  
as a medium and not a mechanism.

What we need is someone or a group of people to lead in drafting said  
letter and also some tools for developing a framework (list of  
demands) that we could present to the arts council outlining the whys  
and hows of how the arts council could develop such a policy or  
intellectual framework.

Does anyone have some server space to host a wiki?

Thanks

Mat
