Restoration of Grether’s list: a significant media-arts resource

13 July 2008 / announcement, site_update

In the course of doing some research I was astounded and grieved to discover that Dr. Reinhold Grether had removed his amazing list of new-media links from his web site, Netzwissenschaft. I had come to depend on this extraordinary resource, and although I was hardly surprised to learn that Dr. Grether had tired of maintaining it — indeed, who wouldn’t? — I was shocked that his solution was to simply and deliberately remove this data altogether. Grether’s list depicted a meticulously compiled snapshot of hundreds of significant contributors to new media art in the decade 1997-2007. So that others can enjoy this list, I have archived a restored snapshot here.
