Wow, look at the Auditur festival: not only sound poetry, they’ve even got digital poetry! It actually collides with Aesthetics of Play, but I’m thinking I might skip most of the opening of the game exhibition (despite the free drinks) and scoot off to a poetry reading.

I’m kind of down though that we’re doing ELINOR and didn’t even know about this. Sure, there’s not much digital poetry, but still, even some! Maybe I’m so damn international I don’t have time for local networks. Oh dear. Maybe I’ll apply for that 3 1/2 year position at the literature department, so I can return to my literary roots. Hm. I’ve not exactly specialised in gender theory, though, and that’s what they want. And I don’t know that I could get a 3 1/2 year leave of absence from my current position. But… Hm.

    Bummer. I’m doing a reading here that weekend. But why isn’t the Elinor web page more up to date?

    Because Elinor’s leader has had absolutely no time and neither has anyone else in the network. Which totally sucks. I’m working on ways of rectifying the situation (i.e. paying someone to pick up the slack since there’s no way I can do it all), but it’s going to take a little time.

    I am a guilty ELINOR member…I have ideas but then time and language (my written swedish is terrrible) constraints hinder me doing something. DAC 05 would be a great chance to gather and meet and I am hoping to be able to make it, despite a new born in the family 🙂

    Yeah, I’m hoping DAC will be a good catalyser for this. And I think I figured out how to get work done, too!
