<nettime> Please Support

Dear Nettimers,

I'm writing to ask you to make a gift to within your means.
You can make a secure online credit-card gift at

When I founded almost four years ago, net art was in its
infancy. Today, net art is getting lots of attention, from the Whitney
Biennial to Toy Wars. And is growing apace, with web traffic and
email subscriptions growing quickly. Since I returned to
full-time in April of this year, we've launched several new programs: events
at The Kitchen, the Rhizome ArtBase and StarryNight (the first in a series
of reinterpretations of our interface that we're calling Rhizome Remix).
We've made several enhancements to our web interface, including Xref, email,
print and bookmark features. And we continue to provide our core services,
which include managing this email list, updating our web site with a new
image and edited text object three times a week and adding new splash pages.

We need your support in order to continue to serve the net art community.
For those of you who live in the United States, it should come as no
surprise that, as a nonprofit organization, we must rely on our members for
support. Here in the States, National Public Radio counts on listener
donations to provide half of their budget each year. Like National Public
Radio listeners, you receive our services for free.

Those of you who have posted to or submitted art projects
to the ArtBase have already supported us with your content. But we need each
of you to take the next step and make a financial contribution according to
your means. Any contribution is meaningful and makes a positive impact. If
you live in the United States, your contribution will be tax-deductible. But
not matter where you live, you'll know that you're playing a crucial role in
keeping alive.

As a token of our appreciation, we're offering a special kind of premium
for those who make a gift this year: a work of by Martin Wattenberg.
When you make a contribution, we will send you a username and password so
you can access and experience this very cool work of net art.

Please join me in helping support the net art community by
making a contribution now at  Thank you!

Sincerely yours,

Mark Tribe
Founder and Executive Director
