First of all, you can't be subversive without subverting yourself,
that's very important. You miss something crucial if you think
subversion means to have clearly defined enemies and act against them.
The enemy is always you, too, and in the first place.

They did not hack sites, they only created fake (altered) copies.

it's not a "hack", its just a permutation, an FTP permutation. no data
has been erased, only exchanged.

this is ludicrous, at least s/he should say s/he wan't exhibit together
with 0100101110101101.ORG any more. it's up to 0100101110101101.ORG.
Marc didn't know anything about FTPermutations, we are not used to ask
permissions. in fact we presented him another piece, that was called as
well permutations, with different contents and website, and if you had
checked the koreawebart.org site before Dec the 2 you'd have seen it:

[7]http://WWW.0100101110101101.ORG/home/glasnost/project/2001/permutations/PERMUTATIONS

anyway all the works but one have been visible for all the time of the
permutations (that means some hours, like 4/6, cannot know without
having ftp connection).

If you think that FTPermutations is NOT an art piece, we basically
accept not to receive our payment (both commission and fee), but we ask
that you *publicly* declare (on the korea web art festival website) that
"FTPermutations is NOT an art piece", and therefore
0100101110101101.ORG's ftp performance doesn't deserve to be paid, than
we'll accept not to take the money. not joking.

you can find an exhibition back up, that's always been there, since the
"permutations", updated to the exact moment when the folders had been
renamed:

[8]ftp://koreawebart.org/artist/0100101110101101org --> .DONT ERASE!
EXHIBITION BACKUP!

as you see the directory starts with a "dot", so it was not visible from
the outside but if you have a good ftp software or telnet connection
you'll be able to see it (in ftp set preferences to "show invisible", in
telnet type: "ls -la" once you're in the right dirrectory). not one
single byte has been erased, so all the works should work properly, and
if we had the FTP account (which has been cut tonight) we would be able
to put the things exactly as they were.

here is a list of files that have been added:

[9]ftp://koreawebart.org/artist/Motomichi_Nakamura/bcc.html
[10]ftp://koreawebart.org/artist/Mark_Amerika/index.html
[11]ftp://koreawebart.org/artist/Entropy8Zuper!/TheKiss/incorporator
[12]ftp://koreawebart.org/artist/beth/index.html
[13]ftp://koreawebart.org/artist/YOUNG-HAE_CHANG_HEAVY_INDUSTRIES/JONGNO.html


[14]ftp://koreawebart.org/artist/YOUNG-HAE_CHANG_HEAVY_INDUSTRIES/JONGNO_KO.html

and they have been added exactly to let every work be visible from the
site.

if the back up is set as root all the pieces will work exactly as
before, we're speaking about numbers, a binary code that cannot "change"
or get "altered" if not for purpose, and that was not
0100101110101101.ORG's purpose.

the reactions of some of the involved artists show by themselves the
importance of this action, if nothing more even just to show how far
from its roots is net.culture going -- and net.art in particular --. if
anybody of you have ever had a website in a do-it-yourselfe-server you'd
know that this kind of pranks happens quite often, and these reactions
simply confirm a complete lack of sense of humour and irony, which is
something that has always let the net being such a funny place. these
reaciton reminds me the one of traditional painters arguing at the
Biennials because their painting has been hanged a couple of centimeters
too right, or the lights are too strong, or the water is not cold enough
and all this shit that have always characterised the traditional art
world. renaming some directories is nothing serious nor dangerous.
taking yourselves too seriously can get dangerous.

"Art is alive! Enjoy it, laugh at it, hate it or love it, but do not
adore it! We are not in a church, hang it on your walls, clean your
asses with it perhaps...but use it!"

They permuted/shuffled files between the server directories via FTP on
the web server, but kept a backup of the original site on it. (The admin
just didn't seem to have clue.)

Me, too. I am surprised - actually quite baffled and disappointed - how
anxious/paranoid otherwise smart net artists - especially those whose
aesthetics is willingly close to hacker aesthetics - can get over their
supposed "originals" and "works" (as if they were 19th century
paintings).

I think this defines 'hack' in too strict of sense for what occurred...
perhaps, 'vandalized', 'mis-represented'..... or something is more
appropriate if 'hack' is to be defined this closely....

None-the-less --- it sucks for the artists.... It sucks for the
curator... And it sucks for web art...

For what seemed a well intentioned event, I still contend, this 'action'
was misdirected...

---- subversion

In this action the enemy seems to be anyone but 01etc.org..... At least
when I read their claims, and their complaints about other artists
complaining... Or maybe that is just their stance since they got caught,
that it screwed stuff up...

What was really subverted here...?  Nothing....

The 'you can't take a joke' claim in their note is ridiculous.....
And, though I like what they have done elsewhere -- I think this battle
was just silly with the effect of only producing 10 or so pissed off
artists, a frustrated curator, frustrated event organizers...
