I’m pleased, no terribly pleased, no wonderfully pleased to announce that NetPoetic now has over 100 posts and well over two hundred comments. So it seems the site is working, or at least beginning to work. Although we can do much, much more. I’d like to encourage those out there, if they haven’t already, to contribute. In particular, send across comments and add posts about your most recent/future/past projects.
I’m also interested in your ideas for how we can improve the site. I’ve been lax in the twitter world and with some correspondance (been a bit tropically sick sadly), so those are a few areas that will be swimming soon. In addition, we are in dire need of more venues. A wonderful recent example is Kenneth Sherwood’s Reading Rebooted Exhibition. Or Judd Morrissey‘s lovely Streamflow Conditions in conjunction with the University of Colorado. If we all worked with our local institutions or connections just once every two years, imagine the exposure. And I would hope the new venues would spur new creative work (always an issue). I, for example, have a backlog of creations yearning for homes. Perhaps one idea would be to contact print journals and coax them into featuring works on their websites. Or write something for a newspaper or magazine about Electronic Literature works. And of course spread the word about NetPoetic.
So……please do leave a comment in this post and tell us what you think of the site. Is this something worth continuing?
cheers, Jason Nelson
