As some readers are aware, Rhizome is free, with some limitations for those who are non-members. More recently Rhizome becomes RSS friendly. A message from Francis Wang, the Director of Technology at Rhizome follows below.

Now available at Rhizome: a Raw RSS feed!
Right now this feed re-posts the entire text as posted originally. So it's suitable for reading, reposting, etc., etc. There are now three separate ways to track the discussion on Raw: by email, by web, and by RSS syndication feed.
I set the feed to track the last 40 items, which right now means it's a sort of big feed, at 87k. Of course with Raw's traffic the way it is, the resulting feed only tracks about the last 36 hours worth of posts. I'm considering excerpting some of the bigger posts, and having more posts per feed, if 36 hours isn't enough ... anyway, let me know if you're using it and have suggestions for it.
This is one of those things that we couldn't have done three weeks ago. I hope y'all find it useful.

Exploring interface and interactive creatures with content grabbed, thrust, stolen, and borrowed from new media artists, poets and electronic pioneers. Over these 2-3 weeks, I will create twenty-four digital extravaganzas, with each one being loosely or closely centered on the content, ideas, images and words of others. Think of this as ego stroking and translation, a way to connect to those I have never met and might not ever meet, and play with ideas of interaction and interface. Some have offered their content, others will simply be robbed, and all will be enchanted, confused, annoyed and giddily stroked.
"As a NET ARTIST, I am apparently diying or dead. With that in mind, I bask in my zombie glow, my rotting wires and my urge to bite through skulls. I could list those academic and worldly accolades that have trophied themselves on my work, but I am only as good as the last swirling mess I spit out. I live in Australia with a beautiful woman and miss the snow, so miss the snow."

EXPERIENCE THE EXPERIENCE
. . . .
Los Angeles, Vancouver, San Francisco
June 14-July 24
. . . .
So-called "experience" is a highly Anglo-American term. Roughly speaking, everything is plugged as "experience". Whether it is a "dining experience" in a restaurant or the "Disney experience" in Orlando or "experience the sorrow and tragedy of Ground Zero" in New York City... everything has to be made "experiencable" or presented as an "experience". Yet there is not even a word for it in German. "Experience" is untranslatable. Of course, this is the same as with all cultural ideas: being untranslatable, ergo driving you crazy. Even though we are coming disguised as tourists, we don't want to always just take. We would also like to give. We bring something with us for North America. And when we leave, we will have gained the experience of how our experience has been experienced. We want to see what that does to us and what the what-it-does-to-us does to North America. We want to convey a total of 7 new "experiences" to the local population in three North American cities, making them "experiencable" in performances and events.

Touch Me @ V&A
:: Tuesday, May 31, 2005 ::
Touch Me 16 June - 29 August 2005
"This June the V&A, in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust, opens a uniquely touchable contemporary design exhibition, Touch Me, which explores the pleasures and sensations of touch, looking at the designed world around us now and what the future holds"
Amongst the exhibitions on show are two Net Art Review favourites, ClickSneaks & HugJackets from Studio 5050, exploring the way we interact with those around us on a very personal and even intimate level.
"Touch Me is both fun and thought-provoking as it looks at contemporary design products and installations that relate to our sense of touch."
