Wow, it’s been a busy couple of weeks.
The beginning of the semester is always rough, getting info understood, munching down on committee work, and wrestling with the continual work of curriculum development. Charles Deemer will soon be teaching an online hyperdrama course for us (Spring 2010) and docs are being written for the new media program, casting up our best effort for program establishment and transfer.
In addition, I’ve added a few features to That Night I Saw, which will add cyclical twists to the internal navigation of the poem, especially when it comes to intermediate stopping points. But, realy, what’s important is the internal language, and what’s interesting is how links emerge naturally from the poem’s structure.
I’ve been back to reading Octavio OPaz. Reading his poetry always jiggles the concretion and relationship handle. I’ve been bothering too much with the technology, I’ve learned, playing with half-backed concepts rather than with the real work of mining, dredging, and bricklaying.
