"Mez does for code poetry as jodi and Vuk Cosic have done for ASCII Art: Turning a great, but naively executed concept into something brilliant, paving the ground for a whole generation of digital artists." (Florian Cramer). The impact of her unique code/net.wurks [constructed via her pioneering net.language "mezangelle"] has been equated with the work of Shakespeare, James Joyce, Emily Dickinson, and Larry Wall. Mez has exhibited extensively since the early 90s [eg Wollongong World Women Online 1995, CTHEORY's Digital Dirt, ISEA_97 Chicago, ARS Electronica_97, The Metropolitan Museum Tokyo, SIGGRAPH_99&00, _Under_Score_ @ The Brooklyn Academy of Music 01, +playengines+ Melbourne 03, Art of the BioTec Era Adelaide 04, p0es1s Berlin 04 + Dissention Convention, Postmaster Gallery New York 04]. Her awards include the 2001 VIF Prize by the Humboldt-Universitat, the JavaMuseum Artist Of The Year 2001, and the 2002 Newcastle New Media Poetry Prize. She was also a finalist for the 2001 Electronic Literature Organizations Fiction Award, 2002 READ_ME Artistic Software Award and the Ngara New Media Poetry Prize 2004.
I changed my vote (again), but by my count (11 deletes to 5 valid keeps) the article is still behind. If you get one more keeper you can end the 2/3 majority. Some admins (the respectable ones) don't just go by the numbers though. WikiDemocracy is bullshit, especially when it comes to minority interest. —TeknicTalk/Mail 21:49, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
The developer team at Wikimedia is making some changes to how accounts work, as part of our on-going efforts to provide new and better tools for our users like cross-wiki notifications. These changes will mean you have the same account name everywhere. This will let us give you new features that will help you edit and discuss better, and allow more flexible user permissions for tools. One of the side-effects of this is that user accounts will now have to be unique across all 900 Wikimedia wikis. See the announcement for more information.
Unfortunately, your account clashes with another account also called Mez. To make sure that both of you can use all Wikimedia projects in future, we have reserved the name Mez~enwiki that only you will have. If you like it, you don't have to do anything. If you do not like it, you can pick out a different name. If you think you might own all of the accounts with this name and this message is in error, please visit Special:MergeAccount to check and attach all of your accounts to prevent them from being renamed.
Your account will still work as before, and you will be credited for all your edits made so far, but you will have to use the new account name when you log in.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
