Another question: On the front page "active discussions" box, my name appears as "Tom Moody" but on comments it appears as TOMMOODY. Is there a reason for this inconsistency? Can preferences for screen names be added to the "edit profile" function?

Also, please note the "Professional Surfer" exhibit was Jan 2007, not 2006.
Nick, I have a long-ish list of "fp" links on my site(s) that are not redirecting to their new locations. I assume those were posts that appeared on the Rhizome front page. I will be posting them on my blog but was wondering if a rule for redirecting "fp" posts was something you are still working on.

How to Succeed in the Arts (by Really Trying)


The show was called ART@* ^ !! WORK--it was spelled differently every time it appeared. (Click photo of cubicle for link to the curator's page.) The punctuation is causing some paragraph breaks and dropped characters in this review.

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.)
