What about the lecture at which Carter Lebares was told to become a web 
artist by Mr. Packer?  This lecture was at Dolby Labs on Potrero in the 
summer of 1999.  Carter Lebares is now a judge for the Genius 2000 
Conference.  We're currently working on Buckminsterfullerenes and their 
relatedness to net artworks.  What about the techne-teleology of the Ring 
itself?  The aromatherapy of character-preservation?  M. Mirapaul knows all 
about the ring myths as used by Genius 2000.
