[-empyre-] to Chris Ashley, Abe Linkoln, jimpunk and Tom Moody

As we conclude the month's panel discussing several artists' work, and
weblog as a medium for a new net art, we bid farewell to Chris Ashley, and
offer sincere thanks for his contributions to the discussion, and for
sharing his series of (interpretive?) HTML drawings to reflect memes of the

The discussion covered significant ground: a discussion of the weblog as a
medium - independent of content; several conversations engaging the weblog

Thanks also to Abe Linkoln, jimpunk and Tom Moody for their contributions to
the "listservosphere" in the first days of the month.  I, for one, regret
not being able to engage them in more discussion about their work on the
-empyre- list.

With best wishes,
