The Institute of Network Cultures launched two online projects at the INC winter drinks: the Theory on Demand series and the audio archive of Geert Lovink 1987-1995. Theory on Demand is a new publication series by the Institute of Network Cultures. The name is derived from print on demand, a printing technology where new copies of a book (or other document) are not printed until an order has been received. Print on Demand publishers includes Lulu, Blurb, and Open Mute. The Theory on Demand mainly focuses on manuscripts that havenâ€™t been published yet and books that are already out of print.
The first books in the series are:
# 1 Dynamics of Critical Internet Culture, by Geert Lovink
# 2 Jahre der Jugend Netzkritik: Essays zu Web 1.0, by Geert Lovink and Pit Schultz
# 3 Victimâ€™s Symptoms, PTSD and Culture, by Ana Peraica
# 4 Imagine There Is No Copyright and Cultural Conglomorates Too…, by Joost Smiers and Marieke van Schijndel
The books can be downloaded as pdf files from the INC website. Printed copies can be ordered with one of the listed print-on- demand publishers.
Geert Lovinkâ€™s audio archive contains more than 200 hours digitized material (transferred from cassettes to audio files). The archive contains editions from the Bilwet Portrait gallery and various other interviews and lectures from 1987 â€“ 1995. For information about the Bilwet Portrait gallery please visit the Bilwet/Agentur Bilwet/Adilkno archive.
