Launch of the Fibreculture Journal - Issue 3 (2004)

The Fibreculture Journal team (http://journal.fibreculture.org) has now put
issue 3 online.

FCJ's Issue 3 contains articles by Trebor Scholz on collaboration in new
media arts education, Jose van Dijck on diaries and lifelogs, Philip Roe on
the theory of the interface, an interview with Niles Eldrege by Belinda
Barnet on material cultural evolution (especially cornets!), Kylie Veale on
memorialising the dead online, Jonathan Marshall on the online body, and
Seamus Byrne on the Google Bomb.

The Fibreculture Journal is the online journal of the Fibreculture network
of critical Internet research and culture in Australasia. It has grown out
of the 'fibreculture' online mailing list that started in 2001
(http://www.fibreculture.org). Dedicated to critical discussion of the
Internet and new media in relation to IT policy, networked culture, new
media education and arts in an Australasian context, the list now has over
750 subscribers.

The Fibreculture Journal is a peer reviewed, scholarly publication that
extends the research and theoretical discussion of the list culture. The
journal encourages transdisciplinary approaches to thinking about new media
and networked knowledge and practices and seeks to foster experimental and
dissident intellectual endeavours.
Next year the journal is moving towards publishing as many as 6 issues, on:

Contagion and the Diseases of Information

Multitudes, Creative Organisation, and the Precarious Condition of
New Media Labour

Mobility, New Social Intensities, and the Coordinates of Digital Networks
Distributed Aesthetics

Games Networks

New Pedagodies for New Media

Thanks to everyone involved in 2004 - especially Lisa Gye who manages the
journal, designs the site, and keeps things running smoothly, the rest of
the hard working editorial committee (Anna Munster, Gillian Fuller, Esther
Milne, Ingrid Richardson, Ned Rossiter, Lisa Gye), all the referees who have
given their time and expertise, the editorial board for their support,
myspinach.org for their ongoing support of Fibreculture, and, last but not
least, the authors who have provided us with such excellent material.

FCJ wishes everyone well for 2005.
