Apologies for crosspostings and spam-aspect - I
hope some of what is noted here will be of
interest.

- The Electronic Book Review is back on line. I've updated my links.
http://electronicbookreview.com/
It has a new and better interface with recent
pieces by myself in the Electropoetics:
Bass Resonance (also published in Mute)
http://www.electronicbookreview.com/thread/electropoetics/dynamic
... and the First Person threads:
Literal Art
http://www.electronicbookreview.com/thread/firstperson/programmatology
And a very interesting new essay by Brian Kim
Stefans, responding to the Pixels/Lines section
of First Person:
http://www.electronicbookreview.com/thread/firstperson/databased
From my pov, there is a lot to take issue with in
Brian's piece, but he presents cogent and useful
critique as a poet=language art practitioner. In
a sense, some of what I'd say back to him is
tightly packed into the riposte-to-ripostes for
my own First Person contribution:
http://www.electronicbookreview.com/thread/firstperson/compiler
Please also watch out for my ongoing dialogue
with Rita Raley, which is due to be 'portalled'
via EBR.

------

- There is also new work-in-progress, and new versions of work on my site:

wotClock - a QuickTime 'speaking clock'
http://www.shadoof.net/in/?wotclock.html

lens - study piece for writing in immersive VR
http://www.shadoof.net/in/?lens.html

translation - version 5 is the latest
http://www.shadoof.net/in/?translation.html

overboard - Windows version recently fixed (again) in the wake of QT7
http://www.shadoof.net/in/?overboard.html

These should all be playable on Windows XP
machines, although they will run better on good
Apples.

- Just got hold of the collection of papers edited by Kate Hayles:
Hayles, N. Katherine, ed. Nanoculture:
Implications of the New Technoscience. Bristol:
Intellect Books, 2004. (ISBN 1841501131)
In which you might check out the essay by Nathan
Brown, discussing Christian B�k and Caroline
Bergvall in particular:
Brown, Nathan. 'Needle on the Real: Technoscience
and Poetry at the Limits of Fabrication.'
Nanoculture. Ed. N. Katherine Hayles. Bristol:
Intellect Books, 2004. 173-90
