Over all that time, SITO grew and grew through various stages of automation. The most recent incarnation is thanks to Jon Van Oast, that original FTP provider! Jon and I live in Portland, Oregon, only a few blocks away from one another.
As for awards and recognition. SITO has been in WIRED, The Face, Esquire, countless "net guides", Rolling Stone and other magazines. Also, in 1996, SITO's HyGrid won a big prize at the international Prix Ars Electronica. Jon and I travelled to Europe to claim the prize, appear on television and speak at three big electronic art events: Prix Ars, EMAF and ISEA.
So far so good.
