The Rogue & the Rogued: Amongst the Web Tacticians
Video by the Design & Media Research Fellowship, Jan van Eyck Akademie, Maastricht, 1999/2000

The Rogue & the Rogued: Amongst the Web Tacticians

The Rogue & the Rogued follows the histrionics of three of the medium's most celebrated tacticians: the webmasters of RTmark.com, Shell.com and Greenpeace.org. The story begins with the Brent Spar oil platform incident in the mid-1990s, when RTmark, Shell and Greenpeace all found themselves vying for presence in the same media space. Among the tactics discussed to gain attention in the clickstream are preferred placement, rogueing, splashing, framing, monitoring and strategic hyperlinking. In all the video shows how RTmark rogues Shell, Shell rogues Greenpeace, and Greenpeace rogues Shell.
