  1. John McDaid

    John McDaid, author of Uncle Buddy's Phantom Funhouse, is an award-winning science fiction writer, folk/filk singer-songwriter, freelance journalist, and media ecologist from Brooklyn, NY.

    He attended the Clarion Science Fiction Workshop in 1993, and sold his first short story, the Sturgeon Award-winning "Jigoku no mokushiroku"to Asimov's in 1995. His 1993 digital novel, Uncle Buddy’s Phantom Funhouse, included two audio tapes, which Robert Coover's New York Times review called the work of “A mischievous guitarist and vocalist with a gift for the inimitable phrase."

    With Michael Joyce, Nancy Kaplan, and Stuart Moulthrop, he is a co-founder of the TINAC collective, a group of writers and theorists of hypertext. He helped create one of the first hypertext writing programs (within Expository Writing) at New York University in 1988 where he served as Coordinator of Computer Composition.

  2. Edward Picot

    I was born in 1958. Originally I come from Hertfordshire in the UK, but I now live in Kent, with my wife and one daughter. In 1992 I was awarded a Ph.D in English Literature, and in 1997 I published my thesis in book-form, under the title Outcasts from Eden: Ideas of Landscape in British Poetry since 1945. Since the year 2000, when I set up my first website, I've been working in the health service and self-publishing online in my spare time. I started my second website, The Hyperliterature Exchange, in 2003: it's a review and directory of hyperliterature for sale on the Web, with links to the places where it can be bought. I try to publish something new every month: it used to be a piece of criticism one month, followed by a piece of creative work the next, but I haven't been able to stick to that schedule for a while now. All the same, it still feels very important to me to balance my creative work with occasional critical essays. Many of my recent creative pieces have been either entirely or partially inspired by the games I play with my daughter Rachel. They therefore feature a lot of jokes and toys.

  3. MaJe Kindschuh-Larsen

    MaJe Larsen, nee Mary Jean Kindschuh.  An incredible GLBT lawyer. A wonderful spouse. Married Deena Larsen (albiet not formally, due to laws), December 21, 2006 (albiet not formally, due to a 3 foot snow storm that day).  She understood hypertext and electronic literature in her bones.  She was planning a massive hypertext that would have explained taoism, kabbalah, and reality comprehensively.  As the hypertext community in 2007 told her too, she took great care of Deena for the rest of her life.  And Deena can find no other better tribute than this database to tell you how much MaJe loved the elit community and found her family and her friends here. Thank you.

  6. Dave Miller

    I work as artist and academic. My art is about telling political stories which engage with current issues and forces affecting our lives.

    I focus on participation and community, collaboration, political empowerment, challenging control and hierarchies of authorship.

    My work is usually in the form of stories and drawings. I mix news, social and political issues, social injustices, with personal experience, views and observations. I make drawings and cartoons, journalism, satire, social realism, documentary.

    Many of my works are digital, programmed, networked, net art, exploring the participatory aspects of networked and emerging technologies.

    I experiment with (and teach) interactive stories in all their forms - interactive fictions, networked stories, collaborative stories, generative.

    I am interested in the aesthetics of protest, political art, art as a political tool, the overlap of art and technology, interventions, tactical media.
