(File of references and responses to the page available on request.) � Principal Investigator, 1998-2007: Transcriptions: Literature and the Culture of Information . NEH-funded Teaching with Technology project in the University of California, Santa Barbara, English Department started in 1998. The project, which involves multiple faculty and graduate students, creates curricular and research materials related to: 1. the social, political, economic, and cultural contexts that now make "information" so powerful, and 2. the equivalent contexts that have always made literature itself an "information technology," including the cultures of orality, manuscript, print, etc. Transcriptions also includes an undergraduate "specialization" or curricular track for English majors. [Note: Transcriptions was renamed the Literature.Culture.Media Center in 2007] � General Editor, 2005-present: The Agrippa Files Web archive (co-created with graduate students) of unique materials related to the origins and composition of the limited-edition art book titled Agrippa: A Book of the Dead, with self-encrypting (erasing) poem by William Gibson and etchings by Dennis Ashbaugh (New York: Kevin Begos, 1992). Since its original publication, this rare work has become famous primarily for unauthorized copies of the poem by William Gibson on the Internet. With the cooperation of the publisher, Kevin Begos, The Agrippa Files makes available photos of the physical art book, the code and an emulation of the original self-encrypting Gibson poem, correspondence and contracts related to the work's publication, a narrative of the origin and development of the work, and resources for critical study. � Chair, 2002-2007: Electronic Literature Organization's PAD Initiative (Preservation Archiving Dissemination) Technology/Software Committee SELECTED OTHER RESEARCH DIGITAL PROJECTS/WEB SITES � University of California New Media Directory.
