Hypertext 09

Lots of information is up on the Hypertext 09 conference, Torino, Italy. All paper and workshop calls are up and descriptions of the tracks. I’m serving on the Hypertext and Community program track.

The Hypertext and Community track will explore, examine, and reflect upon social cyberculture in electronic media, ranging from literary fiction and creative scholarship to blog and microblog networks, social sites, games, auctions, and markets.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

* Hypertext literature
* Theory and practice of expression in wikis, weblogs, and social spaces
* Personal journals, weblogs, and social media
* Net art, literary hypertext, interactive fiction, and games
* Behavioral patterns of social linking
