Dead Write in my own field of expertise

The following is a version of a comment I offered in response to Joseph Tabbi’s recent article regarding his reflection on 300 works of digital literature.

I suspect Joseph Tabbi’s excellent article and the many subsequent intelligent replies, taken in the context of the current economic climate, surreptitiously suggest moot questions of cultural hegemony, exclusivity and potential unrest among future digital natives. Should I comment directly on the kernel of his original questions, i.e. Can I know if models of reception and commentary will conform, if these digital works will actually ‘work’ in a sense that is comparable to accepted or traditional literary understanding / criteria ? Erm.. no..I can only offer my own messy mispredictions below to mirror his lucid reflections above.

electronic procrastination + unhumanities

I’ve been draft dodging from on high in TCD this week, not militarily, nor tap (b)eerily, nor even checkers or under the door draught types of evasion– but successfully avoiding relatively solid outline work I simply must get done – I am (not) doing it right now – writing this instead of what I really should be doing – what I might expect to do, thesis work, digital posts or poems, ..maybe both – or video, code, etc - something seemingly solid other than opinion/experience !
