Years ago we sang a song: friendster, facebook + myspaceget off the net +
over to my placegotta get over your email attachment‘cause your heart’s
hard-drive is crashing…
It [the title] is meant to be evocative—slightly snide towards those
cyber-utopians who think tweeting is a somehow radical act, discomforted by
our increasingly net-mediated notions of self and relationships, in love
with the creative possibilities of such technologies and maybe a little just
the right type of joke to right type of guy.

or seconds from now and in addition to his stellar media art and
installation is the mind/body behind the Free Form Film Festival, Lost Media
Archive and LOAF-I. Grey is from Chicago, went to Bard, lives in Brooklyn
