Usually if you experience my work at all, you experience it on my site
http://vispo.com . Since 1996 vispo.com has been the thing I've been working
on. Vispo.com is what happens to poetry when the 'page' becomes programmable
and the borders between media and arts begin to dissolve in binary acid.
And, for the past couple of years, I've been more interested in generative
art. There's quite a range of types of work on vispo.com. I try not to
repeat myself.

However, in January I'm giving three talks. Two in Vancouver BC and one in
Seattle. If you're around, I hope you can make at least one of them. Here's
info on the talks.

FRIDAY JAN 6, 8-10:30pm, HUGO HOUSE (SEATTLE)
I'll be giving a short (10 min) talk at Hugo House in Seattle (1634 11th
Ave) at an event organized by people involved in 'electronic literature'.
I'm one of about ten people giving a short ten min presentation on a work of
e-lit. The event is from 8 to 10:30. I'm up third. The other people
presenting are Jason Nelson, John Cayley, Aaron Angello/Erin Costello, Ian
Bogost, Marjorie Luesebrink, Mark Marino, Nick Montfort, Stephanie
Strickland, Brian Kim Stefans, and Rob Wittig. There's also an exhibit of
works of 'electronic literature' associated with this event. The exhibit is
on display in the Washington Convention Center. Info at

WEDNESDAY JAN 11, 2:30-4:30 PM, SFU SURREY (VANCOUVER)
I'll be giving a talk/presentation at SFU Surrey on quite a bit of my work.

floor). The talk is sponsored by the School of Interactive Arts and
Technology at SFU. Info at
