* About NICE

NICE stands for Network Interface for Cultural Exchange. It was founded 
in 1999, during TEMP event held in Kiasma organised by Geert Lovink, as 
a network and mailing list for fostering communication and information 
exchange about new media culture events, activities and projects taking 
place in the region of Baltic and Nordic countries.

In 2012 we reinvigorate NICE as an announcement list for (post-)media 
art, network culture and trans-disciplinary research in the 
Baltic-Nordic and North-East European region, including NW-Russia.

NICE mailing list is maintained by Riga based RIXC center. It runs on 
x-i.net server (administrated by Jaanis Garancs jg at 2012.x-i.net). The 
x-i.net server has now moved to Liepaja, where it will be hosted by Art 
Research Lab (MPLab.lv) / Liepaja University.

* Why mailing list?

An electronic mailing list is an e-mail based discussion group, which 
(unlike newsletters, which are one-directional distribution lists) 
allows its subscribers to freely post their messages (with 
announcements). Mailing lists have been important tools for maintaining 
collaborative networks and their communities since the early stage of 
new media culture in the 1990s. Regardless of the popularity of social 
networking sites, mailing lists are today still productive environments, 
due their simple and open way for exchanging information and arguments.
