This trio of tech-art entrepreneurs did something remarkable last year, by taking ownership of the .art domains at large, putting up id="mce_marker"85,000 of their own funds simply to apply to take control. But instead of simply using that resource to their own means, resolved to give 10 percent of all earnings from the prospective over into art projects. The e-flux collective, which was founded by the three in 1999, has also been massively important to the international art community. A network of news digests and other communications, e-flux has distributed more information about contemporary art in the last 14 years than just about any other resource.
