Neen was created by Miltos Manetas as a new art movement: the art of now, websites are the art of nowadays. Neen is often done with flash, a proprietary software. Free softwares are more in the side. Neen is a brand, is one? I don't beleive. Neen was an attitude. Is one? I just don't know. But on the same day, I met Mouchette!
