A colleague here at UBC asked me to assemble a short list of “interesting, inventive and creative weblogs”, particularly ones that “focus on hypertext/hypermedia/literary issues.”
I only had a bit of time, during which I compiled the selection below. I know I’m making some terrible omissions… if you care to round out the list, please add a comment, or annotate the unformatted wiki page I’ve been tossing the links into.
[BTW, I hired a student to do a CSS for my wikis, which he did… but he also recommended I install a more comprehensive suite such as SnipSnap — an excellent idea, but it’s also work, and these are frantic days, indeed.]
grandtextauto – “smashing up digital narrative, poetry, games and art” hypertext kitchen – “Fresh news about the craft of hypertext — on the Web and off.” hyperfiction – “hyper(text)fiction thoughts, links, and bits from noah wardrip-fruin” Kairosnews – “A Weblog for Discussing Rhetoric, Technology and Pedagogy” Literacy Weblog – “Online and Offline Links” Mark Bernstein – “”We don’t have to worry about making it interesting; all we have to worry about is getting rid of the pig.” — David Mamet Weblog Kitchen – “a Wiki about research in weblogs, wikis, and related hypertext technologies.” jill/txt – “I mostly write about the web, writing, blogging and networked literature and art.” Seb’s Open Research – “Pointers and thoughts on the evolution of knowledge sharing and scholarly communication” A List Apart – Not really a weblog, but… net.narrative environments – “performing in/as code” alienated.net – “you do your own thing”
In a Dark Time Literary Saloon Arts Journal wood s lot – “fictive things wink as they will” (frighteningly prolific and eclectic) Riley Dog – cut and paste poetic magic MOBYlives Waggish – “The capriciousness of belletristic thinking is a very bad thing!” (Schiller) Ftrain Cassandra Pages – “Who was Cassandra?”
