It’s Not Too Late! Looking Back at 2011

Art Fag City asked me to contribute a link to a  “Best Links of the 2011” post. I misread the invitation. Instead, I submitted several of my favorite links compiled from my Twitter feed. Only one link was selected for AFC, but I don’t want to waste all my other links to artists, projects, and essays that deserve some more attention. Here’s a back rub to 2011’s best, aka some of my favorite links of 2011:

  1. Does this hard cock look like it belongs to someone into “chocolate nipple sucking”? This web-based game transforms posts from Craigslist’s casual encounters into a sport that’s best enjoyed with two or more players. http://casualencountersgame.com
  2.  “How the Internet Tried to Kill Me” is a short essay about how Google can turn your life into a Kafka novel. Lesson: Make your own website or Wikipedia page. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/13/opinion/13rubin.html
  3. Did you know that .05% of Twitter users make up almost half of all posted URLs? Or that bloggers retweet URLs more than any other type of user? This research paper – published by Yahoo, mind you – contains some gems to drop in conversation about blogging and tweeting.  http://research.yahoo.com/pub/3386
  4. Let’s fire the museum director and get interns to run our museum! http://www.towntopics.com/sep1411/other3.php
  5. Sit back, watch some video art. Artists Talia Chetrit and Cortney Andrews founded After Bellmer, a new online magazine. So far, the magazine has centered on some of my favorite topics: feminism and video art.  http://www.afterbellmer.com/
  6. Phone Arts is a new Tumblr that proves you can do big things with a small smart phone. Plus, the phone arts on this Tumblr are better than most painting I’ve seen recently. http://phonearts.net/
