Abstract (in English): 

In this interview with Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries by Thomas Swiss the duo describes artistic and cultural influences, and discusses web writing.  

Pull Quotes: 

To write, read, and chat in English on the Internet is to implicitly justify a certain history. Certain governments don't ban or burn books anymore, they prevent access to the Web, meaning they justify a different history than the one we do by using English.

It's pretty obvious that the "tone" or "voice" of Internet literature is more distant and difficult to "locate" than traditional writing. Mere book packaging tells a lot about the book and the author; browser packaging is generic.
