<nettime> Getcha academic notability right here

As a tangent to the discussion on notability, networks, and new versus  
old criteria--

Some of you may know that Leonardo magazine's Winter 2009 issue  
published a white paper recommending new academic standards for the  
Internet age. The feature also published sample standards from the  
University of Maine's New Media Department.

The article is focused mainly on changing standards in US-style  
universities, but I think its conclusions are broadly applicable--and  
might be useful to some nettimers gunning for a perch in academia.

"New Criteria for New Media" (white paper)

"Promotion and Tenure Guidelines" (sample redefined criteria)

Combined version (via ThoughtMesh):



What do pigs' wings, alien planets, and computer viruses have in common?
They're all At the Edge of Art.
