Markup: in HTML something wrong is nothing wrong

Now that we’ve got an informed idea of what the Internet and the WWWeb are, we’re ready to start making stuff and when it comes to net art, and making work on the wwweb in particular, the first thing we gotta learn is HTML. In this video we’ll start introducing the concept of code ( something we’ll be talking about a lot in this series ), specifically what a markup language is and how HTML in particular is flexible in a way that’s very exciting for artists, but can also be tricky for beginners. We’ll be looking at a couple pieces of early net art and start using the WWWeb-Snorkeler, the interactive firefox plugin i made for learning and exploring the creative possibilities of browsers and the wwweb.
