AcknowledgementsThis project was a collabatory one. It would not exist without the Vectors team, especially Steve Anderson, Craig Deitrich and Erik Loyer. Erik and Tara McPherson were my editorial team and moved the project forward in many ways. To Tara McPherson, special thanks for persisting in working through my doubts about the format and the digital humanities in general, as well as being a special interlocutor and friend. Thanks to Alex Juhasz for inspiring me to try the to-camera video format.
In equal place of creativity, the Mellon funded project, the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture, led by Tara on which I am a co PI with the outstanding Wendy Chun, Brian Goldfarb and Joan Saab, all remarkable in interestingly different ways.
Next again, the 2010 Vectors Summer Institute, who made me feel my age a bit, but also generated the inspirations of youthful energy.
Nothing I ever do would be possible without the generosity, intelligence and love of Kathleen Wilson and Hannah Mirzoeff.
