Abstract (in English): 

The article considers "first generation digital objects" from the standpoint of textual studies, considering "digital media themselves from the specific vantage points of bibliography and textual criticism." Kirschenbaum discusses in detail different editions of Michael Joyce's afternoon and Deena Larsen's work in editing an edition of William Dickey's electronic poetry in HyperCard.
