NET ART DEAD!

Mark Tribe has called it in the press release for inSite_05:

Although artists continue to work online in ever greater numbers, net art as a movement is now over. But to say that the net is just another medium along with video, painting, installation, etc. would be misleading. The net is both a medium and a platform, a set of tools for art-making and a distribution channel for reaching people. The net can still enable artists to reach a global audience without the assistance of art world institutions. Equally important, it can enable artists to reach audiences that never set foot in a gallery, museum or performance space. M.T. (* title from ‘Tijuana for Dummies’ by Hiperboreal)"

As a movement - I feel it is just begining another phase...

So, *Net Art is dead* according to Mark Tribe, as published in the InSite 05 press release.

I would like to know what others think about this statement by Mark Tribe.

i'm not sure it's a statement, may be it's a rumor ;-)
I didn't find the word 'dead' neither in the curatorial statement from MT:
http://www.insite05.org/internal.php?pid=15-358-6
nor in the press release:
http://www.insite05.org/pdf/press_4_28_05.pdf

where is exactly this statement ?
