hi willem

I can see that you have put a lot of effort in to putting up
http://www.net-art.org but as a site purporting to be for and about
net-art community and practice etc I am surprised you are apparently not
aware of the ownership, use of the domain name by myself before (from
'net-art98' through to net-art01, 2001 edition, now at
http://www.net-art.ws and that you in fact have linked elsewhere on your
site)

http://rhizome.org/object.rhiz?2251
(confusing in this respect since a lot of references, but not all, have
been changed to my present URL)

http://amsterdam.nettime.org/Lists-Archives/nettime-l-0109/msg00268.html

http://www.parrotspeak.net/links/netart.html
http://www.connect-arte.com/fresh/links.htm
http://on1.zkm.de/zkm/discuss/msgReader$1245?modeUy etc etc etc

I hope you did not pay the same emafia guy who tried to get me to pay a
ransom for it? and would have thought you might have asked me if I
minded you taking it over before getting this far.

yours
atty
