Hi again joe, thanks for continuing this line of thought. i agree that it's of extreme importance. i think the nikeground is a decent example. from what i read, it sounds like some ad hoc coalitions were formed in vienna to oppose the supposed nike invasion, which seems to be a welcome reaction for 01 and netbase. at least, that's what i would want to happen. in this sense, the project provided a narrative that is interesting to certain recent art historical models (tactical media, culture jamming, etc) but also engaged the object of the narrative in a very real way - the belief in public space. i don't really think it's beneficial to separate the action into a dichotomy the way i just did, but i'm still not too sure how to talk about it another way. the Diebold case is just plain scary.. and should be the most talked about domestic political news in the US as far as i'm concerned. on another note - did you read the Brian Holmes essay and responses here? seems to have some similar interests with the discussion here. ryan
