the right to create

Sandra Braman from nettime. It is an article entitled “The RIght to Create: Cultural Policy in the Fourth Stage of the Information Society”. I've admired Sandra's work for a while now and this is well worth the read for people interested in the 'right to tinker', the 'right to write', or any other mode of informational production.

Back in the day, she had an exchange in which when she found out I worked with ancient greek texts and contemporary theory, she encouraged me to examine the interrelations of greek high culture and its philosophical products and contemporary culture and its philosophical products, that would have been a whole different career, but i did some of it when i looked at foucaut's use of aristotle in my masters thesis, though i never get around to heraclitus and postmodernity, which we discussed in more depth.
