RUNME.ORG (2003 – 2012)
Runme.org is an international, online software art repository, launched in January 2003. It was an open, moderated database to which people were welcome to submit projects they considered to be interesting examples of software art.
The aim of Runme.org was to create an exchange interface for artists and programmer that worked towards a contextualization of this new form of cultural activity. Runme.org welcomed projects regardless of the date and context of their creation. The repository hosted a variety of projects – ranging from found, anonymous software art to famous projects by established artists and programmers.
Runme.org was a collaborative and open project that was conceived by Amy Alexander, Florian Cramer, Matthew Fuller, Olga Goriunova, Thomax Kaulmann, Alex McLean, Pit Schultz, Alexei Shulgin, and The Yes Men. The runme.org website was developed and is conceptualized and administrated by Amy Alexander, Olga Goriunova, Alex McLean and Alexei Shulgin. It was programmed by Alex McLean. Amy Alexander was the primary site moderator beginning approximately 2005.
