Subject: Issue of Amateur Computerist in honor of Michael Hauben and Netizens


In honor of the life and work of Michael Hauben (5/1/73-6/27/01) and
the concept of Netizen that he helped spread around the world,
we have published a special issue of the Amateur Computerist.
It is available via email by writing jrh {AT} ais.org or from 

http://www.ais.org/~jrh/acn/text/acn11-1.txt

Michael's earliest writing about the social impact of the Internet
were posted online in 1992/3. He coauthored the book "Netizens:
On the History and Impact of Usenet and the Internet" which was
available online since January 10, 1994 and in a published edition
by the IEEE Computer Society since May 1997.

Michael wanted there to be a sequel to Netizens. A book that would look 
at the potential for the development of the Internet (and the Netizen)
that Michael recognized in 1992-1993 when he first did his online
research, and compare that to what has happened 10 years later. 
We welcome collaboration and contributions toward such a sequel.

Also Michael wanted there to be a play dramatizing Netizens.
We also welcome collaboration toward such an effort. 

We are planning some form of memorial to honor Michael's life and 
work and welcome suggestions and contributions from the online netizen
community.

THREE NEW BOOKS FROM ALTX PRESS

BOULDER, Colorado (June 24, 2002) -- Alt-X, where the digerati meet the
literati, announces the publication of three new PrintOnDemand books.

The three books encompass three generations of innovative fiction.

Twilight of the Bums: George Chambers and Raymond Federman's "Twilight of the Bums" establishes these two veteran experimentalists as the Abbott and Costello of postmodernism.

Making Scenes: Adrienne Eisen's debut novel, "Making Scenes," brings back to life the rival tradition of American writing from Henry Miller to Kathy Acker.

.echo: With Alan Sondheim's novel of mystical eroticism, ".echo" readers will lose themselves in a net fiction charged with sex, obsession and codework.

The three new books join the three recently published books of Alt-X
Press POD:  Mark Amerika's collection, "How To Be an Internet Artist";
the novel "Cows" by Ronald Sukenick, this year's winner of the American
Academy of Arts and Letters Award for innovative fiction; and Eugene
Thacker's "Hard_Code" anthology of experimental data prose.

Producing books by, for and through the computer, in both e-book and
PrintOnDemand formats, Alt-X has already launched its highly successful
e-book series which is now followed by the appearance of the POD versions.

They are available for credit card purchase at altx.com, booksurge.com,
half.com, and other channels.

Reviewers may refer to the free complete e-book postings now available in PDF and Palm Pilot versions at www.altx.com/ebooks.

Subject: springerin 2_02 - Middle East

From: "springerin" <springerin {AT} springerin.at>

Out now: The latest issue of springerin: »Middle East«

 For decades, the Middle East has been a test case for international
relations and global, strategic coexistence within a restricted space. It
forms a geographical focal point with a strong influence on the relations
and clashes between extremely different cultures. This springerin issue on
the Middle East focuses on the diverse cultural reflections and facets of a
conflict that seems less and less likely to be resolved.

 »Middle East« provides an overview ranging from media analyses of Israeli
newspapers by Ariella Azoulay to personal accounts about everyday life and
activists in Tel Aviv.

  In addition to articles by Elia Shohat, Noah Chasin, Tony Chakar, Tony
Chakar, Bilal Khbeiz and Karl Sharro, the »Middle East« issue also features
contributions by and about some of people participating in this year's
documenta exhibition: Fareed Armaly, Rashid Masharawi, Walid Ra'ad, Andreas
Siekmann and James Coleman.
 Other Texts by: Olaf Arndt, Jochen Becker, Roger M. Buergel, Robin
Celikates, Hans-Christian Dany, Matthias Dusini, Petra Erdmann, Judith
Fischer, Soenke Gau, Gerrit Gohlke, Michael Hauffen, Justin Hoffmann,
Gregor Jansen, Michel Lasserre, Carmen Mörsch, Gislind Nabakowski, Thomas

BOOK RELEASES

New Screen Media
Martin Rieser, Andrea Zapp, editors:

New Screen Media discusses how classical narrative in many areas has 
been giving way to a new, more fragmentary culture of drama.  The 
book explores the differing creative platforms such as the Internet, 
Media Installation, Interactive Broadcast, CD-ROM and Expanded Cinema 
within a social, political and
cultural context.  The advent of new media presents a serious 
challenge to our understanding of visual representation, of narrative 
and indeed the whole art of the moving image. New narrative forms in 
hypertext, multimedia, computer games, interactive broadcast and 
screen media are constantly redefining the relationship between the 
creators of content and their audiences, who increasingly are 
becoming the co-producers of meaning.

Accompanying the publication is a DVD that provides a rich sampler of 
interactive work and videos.  Such work has usually been shown in 
international gallery and conference venues, which have been 
inaccessible to a general audience. This compilation is carefully 
cross-referenced with the book to open a comprehensive overview to a 
wider public. The cross-platform DVD-ROM provides up to 4 Gigabytes 
of detailed illustration and analysis of the work of artists and 
interactive filmmakers from around the world, who are at the 
cutting-edge in creating and critiquing these new hybrid forms of 
interactive narrative.  Practitioners such as: Zoe Beloff, Michael 
Buckley, Luc Courchesne, Toni Dove, Ken Feingold, Chris Hales, Graham 
Harwood, George Legrady, Merel Mirage, Martin Rieser, Jill Scott, 
Bill Seaman, Jeffrey Shaw, Eku Wand, Grahame Weinbren and Andrea Zapp 
are featured. A representative selection of
Installation forms, CD-ROM, Web and Broadcast are examined in depth.

NOW SHOWING ON WIGGED.NET

Humberto Ramirez's HATE.
Ramirez writes, "This is a video in which the cultural dynamics of 
hatred are explored through a series of talking heads and monologues. 
The video seeks to denaturalize a condition in which the potential 
solidarity amongst different people is subverted by notions of 
nationalism, race, gender, class etc.
By problematizing what seems to remain hidden or at least unspoken 
this work seeks to provoke a conversation." United States. 2002.

Agricola de Cologne's Never Wake Up.
Based on the artist's poem of the same name.  The poem/movie uses 
some fundamental images: The "soldier" is metaphor for the human 
individual.  "War" is a metaphor for life, respectively the fights of 
everyday day life; and the "veteran of war" is the human being who 
cannot rid himself of the shadows of the past.  Never Wake Up 
addresses the loss of identity where the soldiers become distorted 
and veterans have difficulty with reintegration into post-war 
society. Germany. 2001.

Jimpunk's www.nowar.nogame.org.
Jimpunk ironically states that in his piece www.nowar.nogame.org, 
"everything is under control."  However get ready for a nerve-racking 
event.  At first you may think that your computer has been infected 
with a virus.  But don't worry, it's not.  Fasten your seatbelt as 
you embark on a mind-blowing journey that is a masterful mixture of 
image and sound.  Kudos to jimpunk! France. 2001.

Daniel Young's NewZoid.
NewZoid is a work of generative art. It plays with the most common 
information form of our time - the headline. NewZoid continuously 
collects the daily news, tears it apart, chops it up and endlessly 
reassembles the pieces into absurd, funny, shocking and 
thought-provoking headlines. The Site has been operating on its own 
since April 8, 2001. United States. 2001.

Dinorah de Jes=FAs Rodriguez & Gustavo Matamoros's L'Anatomie du D=E9sir. 
This assemblage of erotic images, found and damaged footage, and 
handcrafted 16mm film was originally projected onto the torso of 
Butoh artist Helena Thevenot as part of the one-hour collaborative 
piece "The Anatomy of Desire."  A tribute to biophysical impulses, 
the video version synchronizes the film to its original score by 
Gustavo Matamoros. United States. 2002.

Thomas Swiss and Seth Thompson's In the Woods.
In the Woods, a collaborative effort between Thom Swiss and Seth 
Thompson examines the ideas of memory, aging and loss.  The result of 
the collaboration suggests the way language (in this case a poem by 
Swiss) can be re-represented and changed by images (a film by 
Thompson). United States. 2002.

Subject: Lee Marvin Toolbox


Lee Marvin Toolbox
by
Jorn Ebner

is now available in English translation - at www.leemarvintoolbox.net

Lee Marvin Toolbox was awarded the Kunstpreis 2001 of Medienforum M=FCnchen.

The jury - Monika Fleischmann (GMD, St. Augustin/Bonn), Gerfried Stocker
(Ars Electronica Center Linz), Tjark Ihmels (award holder 2000) as well KP
Ludwig John and Ulrich M=FCller (both Medienforum M=FCnchen) - decided
unanimously for the project LEE MARVIN TOOLBOX of London based artist Jorn
Ebner.=20

Lee Marvin Toolbox is a filigree and elliptical work for the internet. With
Flash animations which can be stylistically ascribed to the young British
design-school, Jorn Ebner makes Navigation on the internet his subject
matter and counters them in an ironical way with the famous cowboy song, "I
was born under a wanderin star".

The work is best viewed with Internet Explorer 5.x and higher, and requires
a Flash5Player Plugin.
