There’s a conference on new media as cultural techniques and as fora for communicative action here in Bergen on May 27-28.

I completely misread that last one at first. “Oh my goodness,” I thought, “there’s an electronic literature researcher in Norway that I didn’t know about!” But no, there are other ages than this electronically networked one and he’s talking about the postal service. I wonder what he’ll say?
