Irational.org is an art and activist server and informal collective dating from mid 1990s, based out of Bristol. It was set up by Heath Bunting in 1996 around a number of pioneering net.art and activism projects, as well as services for the community of related individuals like Minerva Cuevas, Daniel García Andújar, Kate Rich (?), Kayle Brandon, Marcus Valentine, Rachel Baker and many others notable enough or not by English Wikipedia standards, but the server itself as an art context is slipping and should be documented here.
Information on Irational.org's name and context in an interview with Rachel Baker for Rhizome "Between the Net and the Street".
