Dear Spectrers....

I am posting here to "promote" a live radio stream and invite your 
participation. [below is a post marked 26/08/2019 SAVE THE DAY, proposal 
for mailing list radio streams]

With the understanding of Spectre's moderators, Andreas Broeckmann and 
Inke Arns, we have invited Geert Lovink to moderate this
mailing list radio streams (among other mailing lists- nettime, crumb, 
faces, empyre), SPECTRE hour is scheduled for 16:00-17:00 (CET), 
September 8 (sunday) 2019.

I am coordinating this radio stream participation and will keep posting 
on this matter. to bother you more!

We do want to work out some primary concerns for spectrers to talk about 
on this radio show.

let me quote [https://monoskop.org/Spectre]

SPECTRE is an open, unmoderated mailing list for media art and culture 
in Deep Europe.

Initiated in August 2001 
<https://monoskop.org/index.php?title=2001&action=edit&redlink=1> after 
implosion of Syndicate <https://monoskop.org/Syndicate> list. SPECTRE 
offers a channel for practical information exchange concerning events, 
projects and initiatives organized within the field of media culture, 
and hosts discussions and critical commentary about the development of 
art, culture and politics in and beyond Europe. Deep Europe is not a 
particular territory, but is based on an attitude and experience of 
layered identities and histories - ubiquitous in Europe, yet in no way 
restricted by its topographical borders.

SPECTRE is a channel for people involved in old and new media in art and 
culture. Importantly, many people on this list know each other 
personally. SPECTRE aims to facilitate real-life meetings and favours 
real face-to-face (screen - to - screen) cooperation, test-bed 
experiences and environments to provoke querying of issues of cultural 
identity / identification and difference (translatable as well as 
untranslatable or irreducible)

Looking at spectre posting nowadays... it remains the major outreach 
forum for us artists, organizers, who is enger to SPREAD the news of our 

Through spectre, we hope to bring in more audience for our events, we 
call for submission of proposals, we ask you to read our proposals+++.

By posting on spectre, we exist!!

occasionally someone would  send (if not on the list publicly) a 
personal message that would make us happy, YES!! someone did read my 

Nettime (if you are also on this mailing list) is currently engaged in 
the debate on the existence of nettime mailing list.

Here i would like to pause some question for spectre mailing list.

(1) What does spectre list mean for you? if you are oldtimer of spectre 
list? or social media generation? Aside twitter, facebook, what does 
spectre mailing list announcement meant to you?

(2) do we ever expect more of spectre mailing list? do we ever dive into 
"discussions and critical commentary about the development of art, 
culture and politics in and beyond Europe."? do we want to? there is 
possibly other mailing lists to do so?

(3) How exclusively is spectre list? this circle of friends, of knowing 
each other personally. we post to let each other know, we still HERE! we 
yet UNFINISHED? we STAY UNFINISHED?? What/how do we ever meet a new comers?

hmmmm, i do hope i have some responses with this gentle post as we 
search for some topical focus for Sunday's one hour radio show.
