John, excellent point. I think this piece brings up very interesting issues of authenticity, openness, disclosure, etc., in the act of the artist engaging the online viewer and performing via the network (or anyone for that matter). Guido, what are your thoughts on this? Or are you busy typing away right now… Perhaps you could use this listserv as an “open” networked feed for your project.

    Important points, Randall, my thots as well ... of course, if that's not what 
    Guido wanted to do ... the old form/content issue in some way, but it brings up 
    Roy Ascott's idea: "networking invites personal disclosure" ...
