 nn was paid for media connection.
 once upon a time a single-celled organism swallowed a 
 photosynthetic bacterium and created the first plant cell. 
 the bacterium became a chloroplast converting light into 
 energy on behalf of the plant - and the rest is history. 
 other single-celled organisms just kept on swallowing. 
 single-celled algae swallowed primeval plant cells; 
 these were in turn swallowed by larger single-celled organisms 
 creating microscopic russian dolls.

Interesting point here, is this discussion seem to shift to special made work
to the real expo. I wonder if all "real" artists do new pieces especially made
for the show, or that for example Pippiloti Rist is just paid for having a
"old" video shown in "real" space.  Interesting point is what would be done if
a piece by Pippiloti Rist is available on the net, say for example on the site
of her gallery and used in the way it is now done by a work as for example done
by Jodi.  But the point here goes i think further then the question of payment,
it's about how seriously netart is taken (by curators and netartists
themselves). And how easy or difficult it is to add netart that is looked at as
virtual to a real show in a real building, were people have real wages, etc.
without thinking of the implications.



just to give to whole thing a different angle a question to valentina tanni:
you are paid for writing some text, does this mean that everybody that wants to
publish them after you are paid for them, can publish them freely?
