Digital Genres Initiative
In an email Alex Golub asks that I promote the upcoming conference on Digital Genres in Chicago, May 30-31st. Speakers at the conference are Greg Costikyan, Edward Castranova and David Weinberger, so I guess the topics will be games and blogs. How can I resist?

Well, I know one way: this conference almost clashes with DAC2003 in Melbourne (May 19th - 23rd), for which I am reviewing papers and where I know I will meet some really good friends. If I manage to wrangle time and funding from the Department of Media Studies here at the College for one of the conferences the other will be out of the question. We'll see though - miracles happen... anybody got a spare one?
