I'm writing to you to announce the Garbage Park Project and if it's
possible you spend some attention to the project in NETTIME.

Garbage Park is a 'web park', a site where people from all over the world

information about the web, and its effect on society. Each visit to the
park creates and provides more information. Your behavior and the data your
browser provides, is used to develop this site. In a sense every visitor
becomes an 'interactive dating subject' in this web page. The site contains
'Contradictary questions in life' such as ethics, sex, art, life, fear,
religion,  etc.

2. the database and the information flow, such as send 'trace' email to
visitors by automail generated by the server
3. The outside world where visitors we brought in contact react and
