[-empyre-] thanks and farewell

Thanks everyone for a very interesting discussion. It has been useful to
hear digital artists discussing writing. 

If you're interested to know more about how writers themselves are reacting
to the opportunities of the digital environment, I'd like to direct you to
the following websites. Some of them are connected with my own work, whilst
others are highly recommended.

Writing and the Digital Life

digital technologies upon writing and lived experience. We talk about

craft, art, process and practice, social networks, cooperation and
collaboration, narrative and memory, human computer interaction,
imagination, nature, mind, body, and spirit. http://writing.typepad.com
