[Nettime-bold] More on Lysenko

Subject: thumbs (as though there weren't more serious things...)

just to set the record straight - my mobile report makes a tiny reference to people using thumbs to input data, and makes absolutely no mention of mutations, Lamark, genetic leaps, or any of the other wild assertions made in the mainstream media - and now perpetuated on nettime too!

on the funding front: like Coco, Mark Dery seems to think that there is some value-neutral money available somewhere - do people really believe that their work is "truly independent" when it is funded by the government? Surely nettimers are not so naive.
