The diplomatic encounter between the different tiers of co-inquirers, "chargés d'affaires" and public (including the public present through the video stream) has taken place as scheduled, marking the provisional end of the collective part of the AIME project (the site will continue and the software behind will be entirely rewritten over the next months). As to the book it will be rewritten also but only in 2016 under the form of a catalog for the exhibition Modernity Reset at ZKM, Karlsruhe.

At the end, we will have a short "spec book" that will summarize the most important points of agreements and disagreements. Then on the 28th and 29th we will deliver this "spec book" to a group of people (a sort of "authority") that will evaluate, allocate, criticize,...

Kyle McGee is a lawyer who is simultaneously a practitioner and a legal philosopher. His book about the "normativity of networks" puts to the trial the argument that Law is a mode of existence [LAW] the specificity of which can be characterized in an empirical way.
