From Rhizome’s net art news (subscription, free on Fridays):

agoraXchange is a collaborative online game project devised by artist Natalie Bookchin and political theorist Jacqueline Stevens. After two years of soliciting global input, a panel will assess the contributions and develop three game prototypes to be made available for discussion. The ultimate outcome will be the creation of a massive free online player game that critiques the institutions of family, nationhood and birthright, and provides a forum for the creative visioning of a world where political institutions no longer perpetuate war and inequality. The project has been commissioned by the Tate Online and financed by the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science and Technology.

    Jill mentioned agoraXchange, a project to create an explicitly utopian massively multiplayer persistent world “challenging the violence and inequality of our present political system.” Will it be fun?…
