I suppose my frustration comes from the fact we were promised a lot at one
point by art institutions. They were "talkin' the talk" in order to lure
tech money their way but weren't "walkin' the walk" when it came to
what artists needed and they could have provided. A case in point is the
Whitney/Intel arrangement.

But, things seem to be better now and I'm optimistic. It isn't so much
about institutional support as it is about artists finding ways to be
productively cooperative with each other. We can eat our young later.
