Rhizome Archives Live!


Thanks for putting this up. Am checking to see if there any broken links from my blog to this archive content. (Hopefully no one will be too weirded out by the public bughunting.)
One correction: please note the Net Aesthetics 2.0 II panel was 2008, not 2007.

Michael, it's a public website and a public record, and these links aren't being fixed. If someone follows a link from my blog and it doesn't work, it's easier to "get the word out" via blog posts than email everyone who might have ever read my blog and been annoyed by link rot.
Also, this is the second round of broken links we've had to deal with in a couple of years. See http://www.tommoody.us/archives/2009/12/19/fundraisers-afc-and-rhizome/ Sorry if my peevishness about that comes off to you as mean-spirited.
Correction to above: Troemel's claim of museum support for surf clubs was based
on certain of their members being included in the "Unmonumental" show in
2008. (See
http://fourninetyone.com/2011/01/06/fromclubstoaffinity/ - but beware that it has many inaccuracies, as Michael Manning and others have noted.) Troemel may not have been aware of the "Professional Surfer" exhibit
in January 2007, since he is claiming the clubs had "underdog" status at
that time. In any case, it would be good to have the record of what
actually happened restored as soon as possible. (This stuff is still being argued about.)

Looks like URLs are still breaking in comments, as well.

Hi, Nick,
It's been almost a month and the above links still aren't working. Paddy Johnson noticed some other errors and mentioned them on her twitter, specifically that the "Rhizome exhibition archives now almost all lead to
dead links":
http://rhizome.org/exhibitions/?page=3
The page above includes the "Professional Surfer" exhibit, which Brad Troemel and others have claimed as an example of the institutionalization of surf clubs. Right now that exhibit can't be found anywhere on Rhizome:
http://rhizome.org/events/timeshares/professionalsurfer.php
So it's impossible to prove Troemel correct or incorrect unless someone madeĀ  a screenshot or probes the haze of collective memory via interviews with people who might have witnessed the page.
We went through this a couple of years ago and you did get the redirects fixed fairly promptly. I will continue to note broken links here.
Best, Tom

Hmmm , looks like those URLS in the post above need a space before the break tag.
