Hi All,

Page 53 of the Feb 2007 issues of Harpers has an excellent article by
our own Joy Garnett and the photographer of Molotov Man ... Susan
Meiselas. Rhizome is mentioned prominently as are the better halves
of MTAA.

Pleasant surprise - great read - check it out - yea!

Molotov! ;)

    Yeah, I was really pleased to see that, and was surprised that they used
    my image. I'm glad to see that get coverage... Can't wait to get that.

    Hey Rhizers.

    Yup, check out the Feb 07 issue of Harper's for a brief overview of "Joywar" from both Joy Garnett and Susan Meiselas’s sides of the coin. Joy gives a big shout out to the list. (I’d post a link but it’s not up yet.)

    Also, the issue has a great article on “plagiarism” by Jonathan Lethem.

    …old media thinking about new media ideas? rock.

    Hi folks,

    The Feb issue of Harper's isn't quite out yet on the news stands;
    unfortunately, blog-like though their site is, it doesn't look like Harper's
    puts their content online ever (grrrrh); however, a fellow named Christopher
    Reiger, whose blog, "Hungry Hyaena," is a staple on many art-blogrolls,
    emailed me earlier this week for permission (!) to use the Molotov image in
    a write-up of the Harper's piece. (TWhid, I gave him the url to your mirror,
    in keeping with the spirit of the whole damn thing).

    I checked it this morning, and his piece is up:

    http://hungryhyaena.blogspot.com/2007/01/creative-restraint-and-responsibil=
    ity.html

    It's worth a read. He does a bang-up job of parsing the article and
    discussing the issues at hand, and connecting a few extra dots to boot. He
    also quotes liberally from both the Joy/Susan piece and the Jonathan Lethem
    "plagiarism" piece that MRiver mentions below (which is probably the
    funniest, most brilliant thing I've ever read).

    Once again, props to Rhizomers, Joywar perps, etc., for there ain't no story
    here without them.

    cheers,
    Joy

    Yeah, I didn't see it on the stand.

    M.River brought his copy over and I looked it over but didn't read the
    entire piece. I guess I don't get a comp.. :(

    It's great that they're covering these issues. I'll definitely pick up a
    copy when they hit the stands.

    Best,

    Tim
