Betreff: [NEW-MEDIA-CURATING] offtopic -- practise-based discussion ?

hi CRUMB,

apologies in advance if this message is deemed too far off-topic.

i'm a practitioner of 'new media' in several forms (examples at
http://frey.co.nz). i've been lurking on this discussion list for some
months now; i find the discussions interesting, and the monthly set theme
and invited contributors are a fantastic format for discussion. however, i
have found that the content of the discussions can be quite heavy
theory-wise, and it is sometimes difficult to relate it to my day-to-day
practise as an artist.

with that in mind, i was wondering if anyone could suggest an alternative
discussion forum with a more practical edge? ideally, a practise-based
discussion space where theory is also discussed (including regulator
contributions by curators and/or theorists), but where the theory does not
overwhelm the practise. to pre-empt a number of possible suggestions, i have
been a member and sometime-contributor to spectre, fibreculture, nettime,
microsound, and rhizome for some years; however all of these lists seem more
focussed on 'net.art' and related fields, and less on the kind of work which
i am doing (more sculptural/physical pieces). 

any advice much appreciated!
thanks in advance,
damian
