Dear Mr. Garrin !!!

You asked me (If you send a mail to nettime, you are sending it to me
personal too) to support "your thing".

If you wear fancy clothes or jeans, drive porsche or ferrari, why should I
or anybody else for free support growth of your company?

Just because you are fighting for the "right thing" and promise SOME kind
of support to SOME artists?

There have been done to much evil in human history, fighting for any kind
of the "right things". Guys, driving porsches and carrying for they own
asses usually does less mess than any kind of idealistic fighters.

And some last messages we got via nettime are saying enough about you and
your way of fighting...

"the differences between ideologies are not in goals, they declare, but
 in the way, they are trying to reach them"

Best regards to all nettimers!
