Hello,

My name is Paul Hertz and I am a hodge-podge of contradictory and half-ass[ed|imilated] philosophical viewpoints. There serve me well for making art, but less so for staking out any sort of theoretical terra firma. Given a choice, I would prefer islands to continents and slowing down to accelerating (an issue Virilio discusses in some depth). I might also prefer to set my path through the thicket of theory by tracking poets rather than philosophers. Assemble the tropes and consistency be damned!

My name is Tom Kohut and I'm a sort of accelerationist.
I've been following the discussion of accelerationism since version 2 began to coalesce in 2008. (V.1 being the work in the 60s/70s of Deleuze&Guatarri, Lyotard's Libidinal Economy and Baudrillard). I say "sort of accelerationist" because while I am widely sympathetic to the principles of accelerationism (not necessarily those of Williams and Srnick's Manifesto), I think the implications of accelerationist tendencies in art and thought need to be articulated and debated. I look forward to doing it here.

I don't understand what accelerationism is yet, as I need to read a lot more - and a few times - and let it sink in. I find it hard to understand, to be honest.

I'm interested though in the connection with Donna Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto

And I'd like to know more about the accelerationist aesthetic, what it is, and why.

I'd like to know the general view from people on this list - as we are all new media/ net art/ media techy types , who have been experimenting with art, networked technology and politics for ages, is this something we should 
a) take very seriously
b) embrace
c) be sceptical of?
d) be scared of?
e) wish that we'd thought of

cheers dave

Hi - I have a naive question - does accelerationism deal with issues of pollution, extinction, and so forth? Can one wait for accelerationism? Has one already waited?
Thanks, Alan
