Heiko just scooped one of my texts from around 2002. Is it still relevant? Maybe not, since digital literature seems to have completely disappeared in D, A and CH! Even the (U.S.) Electronic Literature Organisation talks of the End of Electronic Literature. And reflection on hypertext as done by Heiko Idensen has not been an issue for years.

Poetry is considered a form of literary art in which language is used for its aesthetic and evocative qualities. It contains multiple interpretations and therefore resonates differently in each reader.
Code is the language used to communicate with computers. It has its own rules (syntax) and meaning (semantics). Like literature writers or poets, coders also have their own style that include - strategies for optimizing the code being read by a computer, and facilitating its understanding through visual organization and comments for other coders.
Code can speak literature, logic, maths. It contains different layers of abstraction and it links them to the physical world of processors and memory chips. All these resources can contribute in expanding the boundaries of contemporary poetry by using code as a new language. Code to speak about life or death, love or hate. Code meant to be read, not run.

The purpose of computers is human freedom.-- T.Nelson, Computer Lib, 1974
No one's life has yet been simplified by a computer.-- T.Nelson, Computer Lib, 1974
In 1974, computers were oppressive devices in far-off airconditioned places. Now you can be oppressed by computers in your own living room.-- T.Nelson, Computer Lib, 1987 edition
"The computer world is like a great big toy store. But all the toys are broken." -- Steve Witham . . "If houses were built the way software is built, the first woodpecker would bring down civilization." -- Anon.
Beginners have the notion that computers can help them stay organized all the time and make life easier. Then they have to face the incredible difficulty and disappointment of learning today's systems, and either give up or settle for far less.
I believe that original dream is still possible for everyone. But not with today's systems.
The End(s) of Electronic Literature Conference will take place August 5-7, 2015, and is hosted by the Electronic Literature Research Group at the University of Bergen.
Bart Sutton's insight:
Is this the End of Electronic Literature? The theme of the 2015 Electronic Literature Organization conference and festival is “The End(s) of Electronic Literature.” This theme plays on several different meanings of “ends.” Topics the conference papers and works will explore include:
1. Is “electronic literature” a transitional term that will become obsolete as literary uses of computational media and devices become ubiquitous? If so, what comes after electronic literature?
2. We can also question in what sense electronic literature and digital writing practices are a means to an end. If so, what are the ends of electronic literature? What political, ideological, aesthetic, and commercial ends or purposes do works of electronic literature serve?
Kein anderer Autor und Künstler in Deutschland steht so für die frühe Verbindung von experimenteller Literatur und Internet wie Reinhard Döhl. Schon ab 1996 begann Reinhard Döhl mit dem neuen Medium, dem weltweiten Rechnernetz zu experimentieren. Die Ausstellung zeigt anlässlich seines 80. Geburtstages am 16. September seine netzliterarischen Arbeiten aus den Jahren 1996 bis 2000. Zur Ausstellungseröffnung wird in Uraufführung die interaktive Live-Performance "Stuttgarter Poetenschach" gezeigt. Sprecherin/Interpretin: Christiane Maschajechi
Bart Sutton's insight:
Von der Konkreten Poesie zur Netzliteratur! Reinhard Döhl war der wichtigste Poet für die deutschsprachige elektronische Literatur der 1990er.

The exhibit was built by Dene Grigar (ELL) for the National University of Ireland Maynooth entitled Moving Words: Kinetic Poetry and Prose, 1984-2014. The exhibit opened on Thursday, March 14 at 5:30 at Illuminations Gallery. Dene Grigar heads The Electronic Literature Lab (ELL): For Advanced Inquiry into Born Digital Literature.
The ELMCIP Anthology of European Electronic Literature is an output from the ELMCIP researchers based at Blekinge Tekniska Högskola (Blekinge Institute of Technology) in Sweden. The anthology is intended to provide educators, students and the general public with a free curricular resource of electronic literary works produced in Europe. The works were selected, after an open call, based on four main criteria:
European diversity: to represent a broad cross-section of authors and artists from different European cultures.Formal diversity: to represent a broad sampling of approaches to electronic literature demonstrating the influence of multiple modes of practice and different types of interdisciplinary art practice.Historical relevance: works that were deemed historically important to the development of electronic literature communities in Europe.Pedagogical relevance: works that were deemed appropriate for teaching in secondary and university classroom settings.
