A large number of white papers ... some accompanied by new media net.art works ... have issued forth at, and during,  the same time period that  much of my work was created. Undoubtedly, there exists a multi-track cross-fertilization of ideas, responses and expressions back and forth from the hard, physical media and soft, virtual media.
