"Internet art" has been around as long as long as the Internet itself. A renegade thing, it's always on the edge of new technology, with its medium functioning as its own platform. GIFs, CAPTCHA codes, found imagery, experimental social networks -- the manifestations and run-off of our daily online experience is all ripe fodder for the net artist. There has been some exciting new work floating around lately, so instead of taking you back to some '80s cave drawing era of net art, we'll introduce you to a few fun recent net artists, ranging from the tongue-in-cheek early Internet throwbacks to the user-friendly art "tools" anyone can enjoy. Disclaimer: If you think art is pretty paintings of pretty things, this little primer isn't for you. In any case, we welcome your constructive snark! Proceed.
