hi Adnan, Rufus,

I'm really sorry I've been off the radar since < NY, but I've had a Big
Pile of work to get through and haven't been very efficient about it!

Joerg is confirmed, Tav is too busy, I don't know daniel, but I have
another speaker - not yet confirmed - An Mertens, an author from
Brussels who has been commissioned by Constant (http://constantvzw.com)
- sci-fi/feminist/free software collective - to do a database of
narrative literary fragments - like a kind of open writer's jotter. I
like the idea a lot and she's an amazing person.. I'm going to try
get her along. __t from c-base.org (berlin) is coming too - and might
do an open space session.

Anyway - looking forward to it! I think we've got lots of nice people
already aware of the Open Media sesh.

Lots of love,
