Hey everyone, http://oneterabyteofkilobyteage.tumblr.com/ is up again after being inactive for almost two months. One new Geocities home page every 20 minutes, in chronological order, photographed from original software.

No lazy webkit rendering, authentic browser fully included :)

Imagine, if you can, an audiobook version of E.M. Forsters premonitory short story 'The Machine Stops' (1909!) playing off a laptop, gently humming on the other side of the bed.

@eilis In relation to art as user-generated content, I wrote a bit about a similar idea, mostly via the role of art as meme within surface web platforms.

on Art As UGC
"You could embrace chaos and illegibility, creating visual or written work that is non-instrumentalizable, but legible across many parts over a longer period of time. This might mean making work that operates at a different tempo than that of branding and social media, work that occupies multiple sites and forms, work that fights for the complexity of identity (as artist or otherwise) and form, and believes in a creaturely capacity for patience with a maximum dedication to understanding."
