Hi Alessandro & all,


I don't really understand it - we've got so many references out there &
Helen has had a whole list of them to put up, including isbn related
ones for books and they just keep on deleting it.

I gave up a while back after someone deleted loads of references about
furtherfield regarding net art projects going back to 96, it got silly.
I g up.ot paranoid in the end and gave

I'm just extremely grateful for Helen for making an effort in trying to
help out in some way.

I do feel sceptical about it sometimes, and wonder whether wikipedia is
just another form of pro-established/hegemonic process for gate-keeping,
as much as google is...


If it does not work out - I think that a social hacking project could at
least quell one's own feeling of disappointment...

I don't understand why it has been deleted.
My humble experience is: provide as many link from other trusted
external sources testifying Futherfield reputation as you can and
don't remove the "stub" status till it's a complete article.

Good luck!
