I'll add u to the list of possible contributors. But this 'zine is going to
take the theme of patches (see addendum botom). Your patch - so you chose
to accept it - could be about that exploring process?



addendum (please forward to anyone u think would be interested)

Any Dance Nerds Out there:

There's going to be a dance 'zine (needs a name, btw) that is
structured along the idea of patches in a quilt. (say quarterly?
yearly? one time deal?)

The theme is the integration of humaity and technology thru digital
dance. The 'zine will together a front page to organize everything
and conributors will contribute subpages along the theme in their
particluar interest (e.g. photography, set design, costume design,
illustration, online communities, e-mail friends, explorations in the new
media, etc.).

Basically, each contributor would design a page along a subtopic of
digital dance of his/her choice. Mostly looking for web experiences
that find passion and soul in the digital vapor.

Alot of this could be organizing links, interests in to a beautiful page.

Basically, i was thinking of doing the zine sort of like the aids
quilt; but rather than a patch - have every contributor do a webpage
on some subtopic of the above.

Interested? Like to add a patch? Thinking of having the first issue
in the end of the summer.
