Does the Internet deserve its own flag? In the true DIY spirit of the web, artist Mark Napier has launched the Internet's own flag online. Commissioned to create "Net Flag" by the venerable Guggenheim Museum, Napier has fashioned a site where visitors not only view the flag but can change it in a moment to reflect their desires or identities. Thus, the flag is always in flux, and it is simultaneously an icon and a min-domain. Just like the web itself, it is never the same thing twice.
