About:    (07)

Runme.org is a software art repository. It is an open, moderated 
database to which people are welcome to submit projects they consider to 
be interesting examples of software art.    (08)

Software art is an intersection of two almost non-overlapping realms: 
software and art. It has a different meaning and aura in each. Software 
art gets its lifeblood and its techniques from living software culture 
and represents approaches and strategies similar to those used in the 
art world.    (09)

Software culture lives on the Internet and is often presented through 
special sites called software repositories. Art is traditionally 
presented in festivals and exhibitions.    (010)

The aim of Runme.org is to create an exchange interface for artists and 
programmers which will work towards a contextualization of this new form 
of cultural activity. Runme.org welcomes projects regardless of the date 
and context of their creation. The repository is happy to host different 
kinds of projects - ranging from found, anonymous software art to famous 
projects by established artists and programmers.    (011)

Runme.org and Read_me:    (012)

In winter/spring 2003 Runme.org will serve as the submission form and 
database for the second edition of the Read_me festival. Read_me 2.3 
(http://m-cult.org/read_me) will be held in May 30-31, 2003 in Helsinki, 
presenting best software art projects submitted to Runme.org up until 
the festival deadline, 1 of March. However, after this date Runme.org 
will continue to function as a software art repository.    (013)

Welcome!    (014)

Runme.org is supported by NIFCA, The Nordic Institute for Contemporary
Arts, Lume, and m-cult.    (015)
