Re: [Yasmin_discussions] Is STEM art good enough?

Dear Jon,

Yikes! I didn't suggest that people use footnotes in Yasmin posts. I was talking about the problem of poor reference and citation in research articles. I sometimes provide references in Yasmin posts to make it easy for people to find the items I discuss. I value your notes for the same reason. Since Yasmin is a discussion list, references aren't needed. Rigorous thinking always helps, with or without footnotes.

Others have written at length about how a fresh genre or medium--or even gender--doesn't always measure up to the criteria inherited from older creative forms. Three texts that come to mind are Leo Steinberg's _Other Criteria_, Linda Nochlin's "Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?" and Steve Dietz's "Why Have There Been No Great Net Artists?" [1][2][3] (I hope no one will take Ken Friedman's call for rigor to mean you have to footnote your Yasmin posts, which I do only to feign respectability.)
