Abstract:

  • Fibreculture is a community of critical thinkers, Australasia-wide, engaged with new media and Internet theory and practice. The list (around 800 and growing) includes: theorists, critics, journalists, academics, artists, activists, and all sorts of media producers, designers and other information-workers. We are people who think, read and write about the applications and cultures of new technology.

    Fibreculture is about critical and speculative interventions in the debate and
    discussions concerning information technology, the policy that concerns it, the new media for(u)ms it supports and its sustainable deployment towards a more equitable Australia. Fibreculture is a forum for the exchange of articles, ideas and arguments on Australian IT policy in a broad, cultural context. it concerns the philosophy and politics of:

    1. new media arts
    2. information and creative industries
    3. national strategies for innovation, research and development
    4. education, and
    5. media and culture
