We made the Elinor site all snazzy! The new site is just up, so there are a few issues still, and most of the images aren’t there yet, but it’s still looking infinitely better than it was, thanks to Pixelpikene and their team. What you’ll find is a catalogue of more than sixty Nordic works of electronic literature, with brief descriptions, screenshots (when the images are all uploaded) and links to the websites.

Many thanks to the many people who’ve contributed to the catalogue. The descriptions were written by (and most of the works collected by) Marko Niemi (Finland), Karen Wagner (Denmark), Maria Engberg (Sweden) og Hans-Kristian Rustad (Norway). Solveig Smedstad did a lot of work coordinating all this and creating a brochure earlier this year, and she’s also helped migrate the catalogue to its permanent system. Pixelpikene did the design and programming.

The Elinor network for electronic literature in the Nordic countries was initiated by Lisbeth Klastrup, Susana Tosca, Raine Koskimaa, Patrick Svensson, S¯ren Pold and Thomas Brevik. And me.

We’re having a launch of the catalogue tomorrow, and we’ll also celebrate the Electronic Literature Collection, which Scott Rettberg is a co-editor of. He’ll present the Collection – which is a wonderful anthology of sixty works of electronic literature from USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, and Australia. Free CDs to the first comers – and snacks as well. If you’d like to come let me know! Room 216, HF-bygget, University of Bergen – at 12:15.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
