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?"  (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.)
