Hi Ruth,

Fwiw, I'd hope Netbehaviour can accommodate blockchain and everything 
else. The most exciting discussions, pro and con, have revived around it; 
I'd hate to see a separate list. So many elements, networking, art, 
distribution, the digital itself, resonate with everyone. I'd rather go 
quiet myself on the topic than have the split.
