(I really should get round to updating my email address: I'm now s.cubitt at gold.ac.uk

Lurker and occasional contributor, <empyre> remains as it has been since Melinda set it up a great resource. I'm a teacher and writer, mostly on media history, technology and ecocriticism, and on media arts, with a little curating: most recently Arte y Optica in Lima (http://espacio.fundaciontelefonica.com.pe/)

The speed of dicourse is indeed the thing: there is so much to learn. Media research means a new text every night, a new technique or technology in production, distribution or consumption every six to eight months, no wonder we need to think live. 

We have a special challenge in our studies and thinking which is that, unlike statistical approaches, we deal in unique events (artworks, people, situations): my thoughts on this are in the excellent NECSUS journal at http://www.necsus-ejms.org/portfolio/3-spring-2013-the-green-issue/

many thanks to the organisers and community of empyre 

looking forward to more
