Summer Hours/Mapping Contemporary Capitalism


Net Art News staff announce they're taking summer hours as of today. Subscribers will continue to receive Net Art News Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. And now back to editorial: Mapping Contemporary Capitalism, a long term software development project, is building a tool for collaborative mapping of power relations. The software will enable groups to share data, and plot the interconnections between organisations, political entities, corporations, and individuals. Based on like-minded projects like Josh On's 'They Rule' and Bureau d'Etudes, this initiative involves many of the talented visionaries from Mute magazine and the University of Openness. If interested in the gestalt of power and information, MCC's research week kicks off today, June 2, and activities are planned for every day this week in London. -- Rachel Greene
