Nettime is an internet mailing list that was founded in 1995 by Geert Lovink and Pit Schultz during the second meeting of the Medien Zentral Kommittee at the Venice Biennale. Initially, they intended it to provide a space for a new form of critical discourse on and with the nets. Since 1998, it has been moderated by Ted Byfield and Felix Stalder. In that time, it has been widely recognized for disseminating the discourse of Netzkritik or Net Critique, providing a backdrop and context for the emergence of and influencing critical net culture in general.

Often understood as a European "on-line" salon, Nettime was initially a pre-publishing platform for international critical thinkers. Originally a mainly English language mailing list, other lists have been created for other languages. While the subscribers have changed over time, the list and lists have had the regular participation of such notable figures as: Rachel Baker, John Perry Barlow, Hakim Bey, Natalie Bookchin, Heath Bunting, Ted Byfield, Vuk Ćosić, Critical Art Ensemble, Ricardo Dominquez, Matthew Fuller, Coco Fusco, David GarciaTemplate:Dn, Gomma,Template:Dn Keith Hart, Brian Holmes, Jodi, Olia Lialina, Geert Lovink, Douglas Rushkoff, Pit Schultz, Alexei Shulgin, DJ Spooky, Fran Ilich, Felix Stalder, Bruce Sterling, Janos Sugar, Faith Wilding, Ana Peraica among others. The list has over 4000 subscribers.

Real life Meetings

Additional Nettime meetings were held during events like HackIt, (Amsterdam) the Chaos Computer Congress (Berlin), ISEA, the Ars Electronica Festival (Linz), The MetaForum Conferences (95-96) in Budapest. Nettime's one unique event was the Nettime May Conference - Beauty and the East, organized by LjudmilaTemplate:Dn (Ljubljana). The Hybrid Workspace drew heavily from Nettime during the Documenta X in Kassel.

Nettime Publications

Contributions to the mailinglist were periodically collected, usually in connection with a conference. In 1999, nettime contributions were anthologized in a book form published by Autonomedia press.
