Sketch of the network

The 0+Network itself and all the communication and information it facilitated does not exist anymore. Only some printed emails and records are still available and references to it in interviews.

The Personal Folder 0+Network also contains many drawings and lists of elements that were part of the 0+Network: a licence agreement with community memory, correspondence with Michael Tidmus about the AIDS Stack, a list of all the news groups of INTERDOC, which formed a bridge to the 0+Network, communication about the university's network that we were using, organizational notes about the physical sending of HyperCard stacks via the 0+Network interface and placing of computers at certain locations, communication with Apple Computer about the setting up of the network and specifications for what we needed (every computer would need at least 4MB of memory), and communication about the electronic gallery.

The 0+Network, designed by Rolf Pixley, was a success, which with hindsight only looks greater. A description of the network can also be found in the programme of the 0+Ball (see appendix 4). I will consider the question below as to why it was a success and how this came about. In hindsight, it appears to have been a vision of the future; it had offered a trusted and intimate environment as well as an information rich and aesthetic experience in which the technology had disappeared and people were capable of connecting with each other.
