Yes, congrats Ruth and Marc for an important and timely show amidst the current breakdown of the 
“old” world order. 


I would like to share the 2013 essay by Gene Youngblood, “Secession from the Broadcast: The Internet and the Crisis of Social Control,” which has strong social and political connections to New World Order:



The way out is via the door. Why is it that no one will use this method? — Confucius


Also, I sent you Gene’s comments to the show via email. 


Best, Randall

Aw thanks Nathaniel!
We should have some images up soon.

It was a really enjoyable opening. There were lots of people there who were involved in early net art. Drawn, I think, by a feeling that we are in a similar moment with a new Internet protocol that has not yet solidified and that has no *normal*.
