From this social hub, THE THING has built an exceptional array of programs and initiatives, in both technological and cultural networks. During its first five years, (bbs.thing.net) became widely recognized as one of the founding and leading online centers for new media culture. Its activities include hosting artists’ projects and mailing lists as well as publishing cultural criticism. THE THING’s multimedia lab has regularly hosted a variety of artists, including Vuk Cosic, Sebatian Luetgert, Nick Crowe, Prema Murty, Daniel Pflumm, Heath Bunnting, Beat Streuli and Mariko Mori. THE THING has also organized many events and symposia on such topics as the state of new media arts, the preservation of online privacy, artistic innovations in robotics, and the possibilities of community empowerment through wireless technologies.
