In this issue, Art Beat looks at networked performance, featuring Turbulence, a net art portal. Turbulence's Helen Thorington and Jo-Ann Green discuss their blog, Networked_Performance, which provides an extensive archive of networked performances. We also profile performance artist Barbara Campbell's 1,001 Nights Cast, a durational networked performance project. Multimedia researchers interested in Web 2.0 might want to help develop a template or standard that lets performance artists share and search their work on the Web. Such work could also ensure that certain software, when it fades away, is translatable or included in new versions of software so that viewing art isn't contingent on outdated file formats.
