A footsoldier in the battle between network and hierarchic culture, Jon Ippolito is an artist, former Guggenheim curator, and co-founder of the Still Water new media program at the University of Maine. He's a sans-serif kind of guy.

You can find more information about his contributions to this site at his New Media Web site profile.
The recipient of Tiffany, Lannan, and American Foundation awards, Jon Ippolito has exhibited artwork with collaborative teammates Janet Cohen and Keith Frank at the Walker Art Center, ZKM/Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, and WNET's ReelNewYork Web site. As Associate Curator of Media Arts at the Guggenheim Museum, he curated Virtual Reality: An Emerging Medium and, with John G. Hanhardt, The Worlds of Nam June Paik. Ippolito's critical writing has appeared in periodicals ranging from Flash Art and the Art Journal to the Washington Post. At theStill Water lab co-founded with Joline Blais, Ippolito has worked on three projects--the Variable Media Network, the Open Art Network, and a book co-authored with Joline Blais called At the Edge of Art--that aim to expand the art world beyond its traditional confines.
