Re: “The Decade in Art: More Interactive than Ever

Hey! Wow, it's not often that you get an answer back when a comment is left on a site, thank you for the clarification and for your work. It's easy to forget that it was just two people working on what really turned out to have an immense impact. Funny that your use the term re(verb), I often think of it as an echo.

Re: “The Decade in Art: More Interactive than Ever

Eyebeam can perhaps take credit for the term "Reblog", yet the concept of "reblogging" predates 2004. As far as I can remember "linking" and giving credit to the author or source material started with the birth of the blog and blogger, yet it was done so manually (with code) and probably in greater detail. Also, several developers did have "helper" software available pre-2004 that made it "easier" to reblog items, I'm just not sure Eyebeam pioneered the concept of "reblogging". Also, it must be noted that "reblog" was hardly easy to install, versions were constantly in beta and one needed a server with PHP, MySQL, and Perl CGI scripts, and even then a good deal of tinkering needed to take place under the hood. If Eyebeam was so interested in the ease and democratization of content why did they focus on working with Movable Type (which is NOT free) and why wasn't something developed for Pre-Google owned Blogger, or Blogspot, something easier to install and use that didn't need to be self-hosted?
