    Writing Machines, written by N. Katherine Hayles, and designed by Anne
    Burdick, is the latest in the Mediawork Pamphlet series. Writing Machines
    has already been hailed for its exploration of how literature has
    transformed itself from inscriptions rendered as the flat durable marks of
    print to the dynamic images of CRT screens, from verbal texts to the diverse
    sensory modalities of multimedia works, from books to technotexts.

    Erik Loyer's delightful interactive, animated, WebTake, "Hollowbound Book"
    has already been made available on the Mediawork site. It is now joined by
    the Writing Machines Web Supplement, an extension of the book.

    The Supplement includes an interactive lexicon linkmap, index, bibliography,
    notes, and errata, and offers alternative mappings of the book's conceptual
    terrain with functionalities unavailable in print.

    Completing the cycle of remediation, the Supplement gives the user the
    ability to customize his or her own copy of the book by providing Adobe
    Acrobat .pdf files for each section, some of which are formatted in
    "printer's spreads" that can be printed out, folded, and inserted into the
    body of the book itself.

    All this and more, including information on ordering the book and a
    comprehensive interview with the author and designer is available at:

             Subject: Update on "Digital Developments in Higher Education"


    Last week I posted a note mentioning:

    "Digital developments in higher education: theory and practice" Roberts,
    Peter, and Chambers, Mark; Taylor Graham Publishing, ISBN 0-947568-78-6.

    I looked for it on Amazon.com today only to discover that it was not
    listed. Thinking I must have gotten the title/author/ISBN incorrect, I
    looked for the website of Taylor Graham Publishing. The information I gave
    is all correct but it is apparently not available via Amazon.com.

    Interested readers should visit:
    <http://www.taylorgraphm.com/>http://www.taylorgraphm.com/ and print out
    the order form to obtain a copy of this work.

    Hope this finds everyone at the start of a great day!
