Our conference is approaching and I’m concentrating on the electronic literature part of it. I’ve shined up the ELINOR website a bit, and I’m adding in a bit more information about the seminar there. Today I’ll be organising fliers for the library and bookshops and book caf?©s and generally doing the publicity thing.

Morten Skogly and Anne Bang-Steinsvik are both coming to read from their visual, kinetic, interactive poems. Both create literature that combines words and images and movements and interaction, but their work is not at all the same. Scott Rettberg’s coming too, and he’s going to read from Implementation and also, I hope, a little from Kind of Blue. Both works are different altogether from the Norwegian ones and yet also bound to this new medium. This is the first one of the first readings of electronic literature in Norway, and I’m really pleased we’re able to start making electronic literature more accessible.

I love Morten Skogly’s Bokstavlek, and I love Anne Bang-Steinsvik’s imellomtiden.no, and they’ve both written other wonderful pieces I’ll tell you more about later.

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 […]
