Ever feel like the net art community isn’t insular enough? Consider those woes cured with Net Artist Daily, an insider net art link blog with the tone of Gawker and the humor of the Onion. They’ve dubbed themselves The Huffington Post-Internet, a fitting title because like the writers at the Huffington Post, net artists never get paid.

In this week’s event recommendations at The L Magazine, we suggest you go see Will Brand’s lecture tomorrow night at Muse Fuse. There’s some other crap, too—for the three people still interested in talking about the New Aesthetic there’s a talk at the New Museum—but you gotta click through to read about that. Here at AFC, we love Will Brand so much, we’re willing to dedicate an entire post just to promoting his activities.

Tom Moody is pretty sure we’re fighting over something, but he can’t quite put his finger on it. We got in a little tiff – over the course of thirty or so comments – over on the GIF exhibition website post three weeks ago, and I think it’s a decent read. This week, Tom gave us some parting shots, and since he doesn’t allow comments on his blog, I feel the need to respond here.

Here’s a blast from the past worth a second look. Good Morning America talks to Madonna in 1991 about Truth or Dare, a production “critics may see as a primitive home movie.

Graphics Interchange Format will come down tomorrow at Denison University’s Mulberry Gallery, but it lives forever on the web. In addition to the four flickr sets I’ve produced for the uber GIF enthusiast, thanks to the mad skillz of AFC’s Will Brand the exhibition now has its own website. This isn’t just any website either. It has all the image functionality you see on facebook minus the social networking capabilities. Scroll over the tagged installation images and the captioning information for the artist is highlighted below. Click on the image and the actual GIF will pop-up in your browser.  This is used everywhere on the site.
