Editorial Reviews

"Jim Rosenberg is arguably the most radical and original thinker in digital poetics, a vital link between experimental traditions of the sixties and the open horizons of the present century. The future he imagines for writing—an object-engendered, deeply behavioral ecology of signs—resonates strongly with current ideas about actor-networks and our experience in a world of things. Which is to say, the rest of us are only now, 20 or 30 years on, beginning to catch up to Jim’s earliest recognitions. How important and timely, then, is this gathering of his essays on hypertext and digital poetics, which have been among the most influential in those fields and make rewarding reading for anyone who cares about the future of art and ideas." Stuart Moulthop, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee
