Rather interesting quote:
---"They [Matisse, Picasso, Derain, Herbin, Marchard and L'Hote] do not seek to imitate form, but to create form; not to imitate life, but to find and equivalent to life. By that I mean that they wish to make images which by the clearness of their logical structure, and by their closely-knit unity of texture, shall appeal to our disinterested and contemplative imagination with something of the same vividness as the things of actual life appeal to our practical activities. In fact, they aim not at illusion but at reality. The logical extreme of such a method would undoubtedly be the attempt to give up all resemblance to natural form, and to create a purely abstract language of form--a visual music...."

Unto us the Machine is Born
Originaly published in Wired-By Kevin Kelly, November 15, 2005
---our questions program the Machine to answer questions.
We think we are merely wasting time when we surf mindlessly or blog an item, but each time we click a link we strengthen a node somewhere in the Web OS, thereby programming the Machine by using it. What will most surprise us is how dependent we will be on what the Machine knows - about us and about what we want to know. We already find it easier to Google something a second or third time rather than remember it ourselves. The more we teach this megacomputer, the more it will assume responsibility for our knowing. It will become our memory. Then it will become our identity.
In 2015 many people, when divorced from the Machine, won't feel like themselves -
as if they'd had a lobotomy.

A video called Web 2.0 The Machine is Us/ing Us”
The Machine is Us/ing Us takes us from pencil to web 2.0 : created by Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University:

Currently, the internet presents a highly disorganized collage of information.
Many of us are working in an information-soaked world. There is too much of everything. We are subject everywhere to a sensory overload of images, bombarded with information; in magazines and advertisements, on TV, radio, in the cityscape.
The internet is a wonderful communication tool, but day after day we find ourselves constantly dealing with information overload. Today, the internet presents a new challenge, the wide and unregulated distribution of information requires new visual paradigms to organize, simplify and analyze large amounts of data.
New user interface challenges are arising to deal with all that overwhelming quantity of information.

The term New Media Art is generally applied to disciplines such as:
: Artistic computer game modification
: Ascii Art
: Bio Art
: Computer art
: Digital art
: Digital poetry
: Tradigital art
: Electronic art
: Evolutionary art
: Generative art
: Glitch Art
: Hacktivism
: Hypertext
: Information art

: Net art
: Performance art
: Radio art
: Robotic art
: Software art

Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, your circuit-bending djs, electronic industrial post-punk glam metalheads, your country/western pirate blues, your prog emo raga, your classical jazz crusties, your experimental ska post avant garde funk rockers, your shoe gazing Tibeten throat singers, your math prog incidental orchestrations, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. The ambient sculpture painting architects of performance art. Detonograpers & photographers. Fictitious biographers. Indie filmakers, modern space laminators, interdimensional decorators. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door.------
