Funkhouser Digital Poetry Book

January 24, 2012

Attention people of Gnoetry Daily! Our patron saint Chris Funkhouser has published a new book on digital poetics called New Directions in Digital Poetry. If you check out the “preview” link on the publisher’s page for the book you can see the full text, which will apparently be available until the end of February.

Gnoetry Daily is mentioned in the book, as a footnote on page 306!

Check out the preview while it’s around, and if you got a spare $35 kicking around, pick up the book!

    I’m going to add Indian erotica to the “Language of Eden”…

    Wonderful! Can’t wait to see the book. I’m going back through Prehistoric Digital Poetry in anticipation. It’s getting me to think again about learning Python or Processing and doing some of my own digital poetry/art.

    It feels good to be footnoted too :)

    Concerning the description of the Gnoetry software as “not publicly available,” I would partially disagree with this. It is free and available to download all of the code. I think the source code for everything can be SVNed, but I’m not sure about some of the libraries or modules used by the Python code. They may be compiled already.

    I agree, though, that the hurdles one must face to install Gnoetry makes it virtually inaccessible to many who would use it. I think it is very important that we find some way to get Gnoetry out to the world as a program that is cross-platform and easy to install. I think too many interested writers are turned off by the relative difficulty of installing the program when they should instead be turned on by what it can do.
