This meeting occurred Monday the 5 of February.
5 of us were present
Rachel read the agenda. So we first began to work on the group
statement. Of course, we could not keep our minds on one thing, so soon
we began to discuss what each individual would like to get out of this group.
Rachel spoke of her interest in reading lots of sci-fi. Neuromancer and
some other texts were mentioned.
Becca mentioned she was interested in art (the links on the hp connected
to artists were her contribution...) but also learning and reading some
Tom thought aloud about encorporating some leftist texts into a
discussion of society of the spectacle
Meredith is sort of keen on doing some general reading on/by creative
Jen brought up feminism and is also interested in some general reading.
So then we thought that maybe how it should work is that after the next
couple weeks, each week one individual takes responsibility for deciding
on what we will talk about and maybe plans out reading or something.
It was noted that restrictions and borders may be enslaving.
It was questioned whether there are differences between reading texts and
looking at objects or pictures or movies.
So for next week-
the meeting will be monday night at 9 pm, either at the Del Rio or Not
Another Cafe, I guess we can talk about it friday. We all thought it
would be a good idea to read "a cyborg manifesto", by Donna Haraway, a
chapter in her book "Simians, cyborgs, and saints" which is on reserve at
the library, and one or two other articles that may add to a discussion
of this article. you may want to email what else you will read to the
group, if you can.
Then we hacked out a beginning statement. You can see it on the homepage.
Questions for next time, after Howard discusses the news groups...
How to structure the web sites with the minutes so that others can respond?
