Networked_Performance, WriteHere, and Intelligent Agent

by Noah Wardrip-Fruin · , 1:32 am

Turbulence’s new Networked_Performance blog has only been going in earnest for a couple weeks, and it’s already hopping. Head over to learn, contribute, or help plan the 2006 conference (which will be organized by New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.; Emerson College, Boston; and California State University at Monterey Bay). Meanwhile, Matt Kirschenbaum brings word of WriteHere.net — “a wiki community for creative writers and fiction readers.” My Spring 2003 workshop did some WikiWork, and I’ll be interested to see how such things scale up at WriteHere. Finally, there’s a new issue of Intelligent Agent with essays on copyright, free cooperation, and virtual embodiment. The reviews section also has some reflections on Bang the Machine and GDC from GTxA drinking buddy Adam Chapman.
