Broadcast IUOMA

My latest mailing from Ruud Janssen, of IUOMA central in Breda, The Netherlands, consisted mostly of notes to be and bits of advertisement for the YouTube incarnation of IUOMA, so I figure it best just to point people in that direction. See below for one of the essential videos on the site. All of this makes me wonder about the direction of mailart, away from the mails proper and towards other modes of transmission, even other modes of creation. Mailartists, of course, have always been involved in art activities beyond the world of mailart. This is just a new one.

Hi Geof,

Thanks for the link. Yes, there is a large world of art-related issues that isn't in the mail-art network. Video's are also communication. Is Electronic mail also mail?
