In a desperate attempt to stop the involuntary leakage of its readership, the slightly less-old gray lady has tried the Depends of new media, embracing a technology that almost spelt its d-e-a-t-h in bright blue hyperlinked Arial.

Writer Response Theory is pleased to welcome a new visiting blogger: acclaimed elit author M.D. Coverley (aka Marjorie Coverley Luesebrink).

An accomplished hypermedia author, M.D. Coverley has been one of the most influential authors of digital narrative over the past decade. With numerous electronic works to her credit and as a member of the board of directors of the Electronic Literature Organization, Coverley has been a major voice in the development of electronic narrative and an advocate for many artists. This past August, she guest edited an issue of The Iowa Review Web with fellow epoetess Stephanie Strickland, featuring the works of Jason Nelson and Donna Leishman.

Perhaps, best known for her electronic novel, Califia, M.D. Coverley has been dedicated to the development of rich narratives with complex navigational structures. Her stories express her deep interests in mythologies and intersections of personal and communal histories.

Coverley began her electronic writing exploits in N. Katherine Hayles’ infamous National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for College Teachers (1995): “Literature in Transition: The Impact of Information Technologies.” Given her extensive writing experiments prior to that session, however, perhaps it was not she who was introduced to elit, but elit that discovered its kindred spirit Since beginning a life in flickering letters, she has continued to innovate and promote the spread of electronic literature.

M.D. Coverley will be blogging at WRT starting this month and continuing at least till April. As her first regular blogging stint, this is a rare opportunity to see her in the blogosphere. We Really Thank her for joining us, and look forward to her contributions to the discussion at WRT!

When Alan Turing proposed his test, there was no question that the computers would be tested based on their ability to perform in the same language as the interrogators. As a result, the test was also a bit of an English exam — and indeed many bots fail on the basis of their grammar and, […]
