Here are some more interesting online literary works:
DREAMING METHODS (BRITAIN)
Strongly atmospheric site of digital fiction.
ALEXANDRE GHERBAN (FRANCE)
Here is a different sort of poetry. You don't have to understand French to
enjoy this work. I was particularly taken with "la colonie". This is a
collection of 14 Shockwave pieces. Most are both sonic and visual. These
works mostly proceed by symbols moving around and interacting with each
other. Sometimes you can affect that motion and interaction. It gives a
sense of the interaction of symbols in a way different language to produce
meaning. Of "la colonie", Gherban says: "The colony" is made up of a
collection of small automata having various artistic 'functions'. The sounds
come from my voice; phonemes are used to produce sound sequences in real
GISELLE BEIGUELMAN (BRAZIL)
Giselle's work is quite diverse. She does installation work involving cell
phone technology and also does considerable net art; she is both a poet and
a code/visual artist. For instance, she does visual work such as "I Love
Your Gif", which is mainly visual, but also does work such as "The Book
After the Book". She works with many types of codes.

Runo Eino Santanen and Tatu Pojavirta
A textual version of the classic arcade game Space Invaders.
THE MANDRAKE VEHICLES (BRITAIN?)
Oni Buchanan and Betsy Stone Mazzoleni
A AS IN DOG (FINLAND/USA)
Marko Niemi and Dan Waber
part hommage, part parody, all ultra-minimalist all the time (or, anything
they can do minimal, we can do less)
The many projects of the poet-programmer Marko Niemi. Marko is probably the
world's leading poet-programmer of DHTML works (interactive, dynamic HTML).
He also is very active in translating digital poetry into Finnish.
Christophe Bruno does fascinating conceptual, poetical net.art. His site
combines interesting programming with a great sense of humour.
