[NetBehaviour] The strange tale of Rhizome and its Arts Council funding

Hi all,

Thanks for a good discussion. It's why I used the term "the strange tale"
in the headline - the article wasn't designed to tear down ACE or Rhizome -
in fact, I had written a rather fluffy article being generally positive
towards Rhizome last week for a different publication.

I guess that I wanted to just report on what happened, to give ACE their
right of reply, which they duly did, and to end with open question as to
what the public support of digital art looks like in 2013 - how decisions
are made and to whom they affect (directly or otherwise).

The jiggaweb93 user's motives remain unclear. Not only did they leak the
ACE / Rhizome emails but they also hacked into the 7on7 site and then their
Twitter account was suspended. Clearly, some energy and intent was put into
doing all what they did.

Anyway, I'll take my reporter's hat off now. We have launched run a new
competition on the Imperica website, to win tickets to xHumed - you are all
invited to enter that :-)
