As part of the nag team, I have been helping (fixing and maintaining) Coco Sollfrank 's classic artwork net art generator in recent years, and it is now showing (Writing the history of the Future) at ZKM, https://zkm.de/en/exhibition/2019/02/writing-the-history-of-the-future. Eric and I have written an extensive article about net art generator and #API practices, see: https://firstmonday.org/ojs/index.php/fm/article/view/9553
Can't wait to work collaboratively again with Cornelia on the forthcoming book: "fix my code".

Forthcoming zine on #wilfultechnologies with many great contributors :)
The article is just out on #API practices and paradigms (Open Access). We have used net.art generator as our main object of study, and we give a few suggestions for how anyone working with APIs might think through certain key questions around the creation and use of APIs, particularly in regards to the parameters of openness, accessibility and terms of inclusivity that APIs set upon practices of knowing, sharing, participation and exchange.
