Diana McCarty

I was born and raised in New Mexico and have lived in Europe since 1993 - Budapest in 90's and Berlin in the 2000s. I am a co-founder of the faces mailing list and a happy collaborator of the Prologue: New Feminism New Europe project. Watch out for Tallin!

Most of my time is spent working with a few radio projects, mostly in Berlin - at present, backyardradio.de and www.hkw.de/hausradio. In the past, it was Radio 1:1, Reboot.fm and Juniradio. And, not to forget, a founding member of the radia.fm network of cultural radios!

A long time ago, I was part of the International Women’s University server development team, and worked with Seda Gürses, Barbara Schelkle, Prof. Heidi Schelhowe, and Heiki Pisch - and also worked to develop feminist pedagogical approaches to learning technology. In the mid-nineties, I co-founded the Nettime Mailing list ,and as part of the Media Research Foundation, co-organized the MetaForum Conference Series in Budapest. My main interests are exploiting social and technological systems for cultural use; i.e. piracy and open source software development for real life.
