Brian Kim Stefans has published several books and chapbooks of poetry, most recently Jai-lai for Autocrats (poems, Portable Press) and Fashionable Noise: On Digital Poetics (Atelos Books), a miscellany of interviews, poems and poetics. His essay on the political blog he created and co-edited called Circulars (http://www.arras.net/circulars/) is forthcoming in a book by MIT Press later this year. He runs arras.net, devoted to new media poetry and poetics.

Writer and vocalist, Latasha N. Nevada Diggs' literary and sound works have been published and recorded in various publications and for music projects ranging from rock to house. She is the author of two chap-books, Ichi-Ban: from the files of negrita muneca linda and Ni-ban: Villa Miseria and the producer and writer for the conceptual audio project, Television. A fellow of the Cave Canem Workshop for African American Poets, she is a 2002 Harvestworks Digital Media Arts artist in residence, a 2003 Zora Neale Hurston recipient from Naropa Institute, and a 2003 New York Foundation for the Arts fellow. She is also the lead electronic vocalist for the Zappa-esque jam band, Yohimbe Brothers, fronted by Vernon Reid and DJ Logic. She lives in Harlem.

Cary Peppermint is a performance artist involved with immersive environments of convergent media. His work flows through organic and new media technologies, incorporating live performance, interactive installations, experimental music, and the internet. At the most basic level, Peppermint's works are concerned with mediation and the reduction of space and time. Peppermint's works comprise some of the first real-time, interactive performance art realized via the internet including "The Mashed Potato Supper" conceived in 1995 as part of Edinburgh's Fringe Film and Video Festival OE96 and "Conductor Number One" included in "PORT: Navigating Digital Culture" at MIT List Visual Arts Center in 1996. Peppermint lives in New York where he releases work through his performative online database of convergent media at http://www.restlessculture.net
