The Electronic Literature Organization is pleased to announce that their
substantially upgraded website is now in place at

To help explain what "electronic literature" is and why we find it so
powerful and compelling, the ELO's new site includes a showcase which
features exemplary works, new and old. The five most recent showcased
items are visible at the top of the main page, and everything featured to
date is also accessible. An RSS feed of the showcase is available so that
readers can automatically keep bookmarks to the current entry or syndicate
the showcase on their own sites.

News items from July 2000 to the present, along with other pages on the
site, are now easily searchable, and recent news is also available by RSS.
The news can also be accessed by category and by date. We hope these and
other features of the site will make it easier for us to provide
announcements and news that interests readers and authors.

The ELO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1999 to
promote and facilitate the writing, publishing, and reading of electronic
literature. Since its formation, the Electronic Literature Organization
has worked to assist writers and publishers in bringing their literary
works to a wider, global readership and to provide them with the
infrastructure necessary to reach one another.

Remarkably awkward to use, and no search engine.
