In 1994 I was artist-in-residence at the Western Front in Vancouver, where I used low-power "pirate" television transmitters and ISDN videoconferencing to create a live online and open-source video-mixing network called TV Freenet. It would be nearly ten years before systems such as Waag Society's Keyworx technology, Bittorrent, and YouTube made this vision a reality on the Internet today.

My first webpages were uploaded in early 1994 on server //ping.at/. 1994/1995 Public Netbase and soon afterwards The Thing network were offering free possibilities for artist to publish their projects. Both servers are no longer accessible - The Thing was commercialized in 2000 (links still work), Netbase closed its service in 2004.
