Net Ae 2.0 postmortem


Good God, the humility on this thread is overwhelming.
"There was this terrible idea that we started as a joke out of contempt for a practice that we hated. Young people imitated us and did not add anything new. They are fools and have no sense of history and believe they invented this practice that meant nothing to us (until other people started doing it and taking credit for it)."
...is how this reads to me.

Net Ae 2.0 postmortem


Just to be clear, Marcin Ramocki's notes on surf clubs don't say anything about graffiti.

I had some afterthoughts on the panel here:

Abe: does JODI consider their delicious links to be art? I bet they do.


DISCUSSION

What?


With the Net Aesthetics 2.0 panel in mind I went back and looked at a series of posts I did on "the blog as delivery system for art" vs "stationary sites that critique the web."

I reposted some of those arguments from 2004, as well as some discussion from around the time of the last Net Aesthetics 2.0 panel in 2006, here: http://www.tommoody.us/archives/2008/05/23/web-art-20-discussion-afterthoughts-3/


Vijay,
I have been thinking about your 4chan vs Mouchette distinction--it's a good one--and hope to have something up on it eventually.

Kids, get off my lawn and turn off those embeds!
