See what I mean, M.River?

DISCUSSION

What?


M.River, re: "sometimes I get the feeling that you think Rhizome or people on it are out to get you"

Uh, you mean like referring to my comments as "silly trolling," as an out of control T.Whid did? Ed Halter also indulged in the T-word. I never did that to commenters I respected on my blog, when it had comments. Not sure I would call it being "out to get me." Being impolite, yes.

DISCUSSION

What?


Afterthought, from my blog: "Vijay Pattisapu has an informative rundown in the Rhizome.org discussion forum on Chan, 7Chan, etc.--collective sites of posts by mostly anonymous users that serve as breeding grounds for animated GIFs and other "meme" art. Some have furrowed their brows wondering how that kind of anarchic creative energy, native to the world wide web, can be translated into capital A art. But they have not furrowed their brows enough for some other people, as can be seen on the same Rhizome thread.

DISCUSSION

What?


M.River,
By conspiracy I was referring ironically to your earlier, ironic comment (http://rhizome.org/editorial/fp/blog.php/689): "my ideas have to do with a vast conspiracies by the CIA, The International Art Mob (IAM) and MTAA to control Net Art 2.0’s critical discourse on Rhizome in order to squash freedoms, lower common denominators, and ruin economic evolutions of net art, in general, and the Net Art Next Generation (NANG) specifically."

Olia Lialina's text is about the "early" vernacular web, not the current scene.

Someone thought I was dissing Ceci Moss here. Saying she could discriminate work the conspiracy thought was cotton candy was a compliment!

Thanks to Vijay Pattisapu for the excellent 4Chan history. I don't think M.River was referring to it when he complained about "found object gamesmanship," though.

Out of Office AutoReply


Martin, if what you are saying is true then the joke is only funny because some of us thought "out of office autoreply" could create such a loop. How awkward. I propose a revision to the piece: two computers mailing "the recipient's mailbox is full" messages back and forth to each other--that message I know goes out multiple times for each recipient.
