We have always wished Mr. Ross would insult us.  He's sooo excitable.  We
also figure nettime's a little heady for him, and we're not overly fond of
Rhizome.  Oh well.

Cool!!!! Then our Photoshop files can really be treated like paintings.
Oooh how grand to have unique objects in cyber space.  We take back
everything we ever said about digital imagery.  Thank goodness we're filthy
stinkin' rich.

Collegial good will?  We apologize if our sarcasm and condescension were
somehow interpreted as sincerity.  We'll have to optimistically suggest that
that's the beauty of text conversation.

And let's not be too hard on Mr. Byfield.  He was the best dressed speaker
at the last Intel sponsored symposium we went to....and not very ignorant
either, we're afraid.
