I believe that the dark days of 'Official' net art has gone now and that all
will be seen.

Re: your thoughts on upcoming online classes


mmm,

So someone will judge it all via historical context. Let's make sure then t=
hat it involves you and myself and many others..not just the suspects...

I'm sure that someone somewhere will have to codify and organize these ob=
jects into discreet units that are part of a specific shell.

The net.art shell is good for at least 6 months.

Re: your thoughts on upcoming online classes


Hi Ivan,

You can claim it alright, you probaly were. I remember the name as well. I
used to frequent it myself many times. I don't think I was suggesting to be
the originator of BBS in the Uk. In fact, I left all the comp 'Wildcat'
stuff to Heath - I was the one who shoved a ot of the content in, that's my
best quality really, ideas, research and content. It was the same for radio
station stuff, always been good at finding content. Was that the Originator
or the Terminator? :-)

much respect marc
