post-biographical identity

date submitted

hoped for return
Presumably academic paper on how personal identity would construct when informationalization halts all clocks in a perpetual now, allowing all of us to freely travel back and forth in time, without however at the end of the day being offered the possibility to claim a ‘biography’ in the traditional sense, meaning a linear chronological resumé containing personal and professional information on individual growth over a lifetime.

Or something.

Radius Loci

hoped for return
Actually I don’t think I submitted this one, or have I? Do I ever publish a marker without checking Google first? I mean: Genius Loci today returns 18k-ish, it's a household term. When I publish in nqpaofu.com #7: “In an economy of closed loops — re:cycling — sustainability is in information and communication, not in the object. Sense/spirit of place is extended infinitely in the radius of information exchange that filter through a place, an object in physical space, coordinated space, immediate experience. So, for example the Moulin is a site, a habitable space for some, as much as a media possibility for them, and others. Radius Loci outshines Genius Loci.”, I anticipate another household term.

Spam which leaves the email environment will find another canvas alltogether. Pervasive spam includes enhanced or ‘functional’ (or pharma-) food, GPS guided messaging, customizing publicity in general, etc.

panintermediation", or "pan-intermediation

date submitted
26 January 2004

by
Jouke Kleerebezem

hoped for return
Against the misunderstanding of the information age as an era of disintermediation, I would argue it to be the age of panintermediation. Many-to-many media allow all-to-all agency. Enhanced by interest based search queries I disclose any available information on my topic, whether online, or off. In the information age institutionalized intermediation is contested, distributed, democratized to the level of being a popular pastime — we are not living the end of intermediacy at all, rather its apotheosis.

open curating

date submitted
17 November 2004

by
Jouke Kleerebezem

hoped for return
While the ‘open source’ (23,900,000 returns!) concept has easily translated onto ‘open editing’, ‘open publishing’, ‘open content’ &tc, as it is generally accepted to describe a flexible system of multi-author content creation and management, so far no ‘open’ proposals have reached the contemporary art world. It being the notoriously closed community it is this shouldn’t surprise us.

Open curating nevertheless is a valuable concept for curatorial intelligence beyond the signature authorship of the contemporary exhibition maker. Imaginable as an expanding database of art pieces, art concepts, exhibition themes and curatorial interests — contained in limitless tagged text and image files — any curatorial interest could both tap and feed its own preferences from such a project. New combinations would arise with every query, providing a source for the development of exhibitions, events, venues, publications.

weblog conservancy

by

hoped for return
Some smart idea to guarantee a weblog’s or other personal publication’s life after its author’s death. A contextualizing and researchable specialized library collection of online publications, at or as an institutional organisation of great stamina.

géomédiatique

date submitted
19 January 2006

by
Jouke Kleerebezem

hoped for return
With all the geolocative informatization going on, ‘géomédiatique’ would at least in the French language (or wider: compare to ‘géopoétique’, which also internationally rings a bell) refer to rural innovation under ICT. My own conceptualization of post-rurality connects to the French notion of néo-ruralité. However the ‘post’ indicates a true break with previous notions and constructions of the rural area. Rural sprawl? For city folks like myself to live in deep France inspires ideas about assets to be preserved, conveniences lacking, while at the same time agriculture as much as it constituted the countryside in the past, rapidly losing its quantativily competitive stand, in its industrialization against all odds, has become a threat to sustainable alternative scenarios to use ALL THAT SPACE.
