RIP Tom Moody. He was a net art guy who was a big presence on the chatroom. I followed his blog for years and I’ll miss his posts regularly showing up in my feed. He was curmudgeonly a lot of the time – there used to be a tumblr blog making fun of him – but he had a discerning critical eye, possibly the only good writing on gifs and internet art, and an uncompromising distrust of big tech.

Some posts I’d bookmarked over the years:

  • Highbrow Kitsch
  • turing complete user – notes for a guide
  • viewers must be informed
  • interview re: GIFs and internet art (as of 2021)
