Re: <nettime> An Artist's Guide for Editing Wikipedia.


I'm not sure that Miltos' proposal will work.

What is really needed is critical articles published elsewhere which
can be cited as references.

I think Rob Myers point about there being no New Media Art WikiProject
(yet), is very pertinent.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council for how
wikiprojects work.

I agree with Rob that the starting point should be with the current
Wikipedia:WikiProject_Visual_arts

see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Visual_arts

Also
check:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Visual_a
rts#Psychocinetic_Art as an example of a particular discussion.

What arts practitioners can do is provide images in the public domain
which can be used to illustrate articles.

all the best
