Bloody interesting. I'm a first year student studying B.A. Painting at Wimbledon College of Art in London, on my holidays to New York, I attended this, it was very well put together and a friendly environment was to be had amongst the talkers Wolfgang whom I had never heard of and Jason Scott who was quite the character and the pleasant suited man who works for Rhizome.

Connecting to the museum’s “NYC 1993” exhibit, this talk looks at the early-’90s networks, such as the Thing, that predated the Internet. Participants include digital conservator Ben Fino-Radin, archivist Jason Scott, and artist and Thing founder Wolfgang Staehle.
