List Members:

In the pursuit of further defining the shareholders in Dance's
processes as it integrates technology, Scott deLahunta expanded the
parameters by listing some shareholders/participants.

In reviewing his listings, one can concur and expand the list.

What is being sketched, though, is the DANCE relationships that now
bridge out of the 'core domain'. Supporting parnerships with
institutions, funding sources, entrepreneurial efforts are all
demonstrations of the need to channel/stretch creative energy, curiosity
and interests in the MIX of cultures.

Internet based research, evocative discussions [this discussion
group], outreaches into other knowledge domains are occuring exponentially
as DANCE stretches (oh sure, pun intended).

For your review, I reference two books which are addressing the
same confluences DANCE is experiencing as it explores tech.

1. Creativity: Flow and Psychology of Discovery and Invention
by Mihaly Csikszentmihaly.

2. Consilience: the Unity of Knowledge
by Edward O. Wilson.

We struggle with the acts of perceptual change/shifts in paradigms
and in the processes to find --> expanded consciousness. All new
assemblages, breaking new ground, creative innovations..force us to AGAIN
address the artists' eternal dilemma: to take refuge in an established
career effort or FORD the floods to a new strange environment. While explore and yet SURVIVE.
