Subject: need publisher, help, please reply backchannel    

Hi - I'm writing a generic letter, apologies; I want to find a publisher for my 
theoretical work, and everything continues to fall through. At one point 
Minnesota was going to work with us - us being Sandy Baldwin, who created a 
framework for my texts - and Sandy wasn't able to continue on the project (he's 
fully supportive; it was a question of time) - Minnesota withdrew. If you have 
any idea or better yet, the possibility of publica- tion, please let me know. I 
have a text out with Fort-Da but there's been no money for an ISBN number, so 
that's unadvertised; WVU might do something in the future with my texts on 
writing, if a series gets going, but that's speculative. The texts I've been 
writing have been on two main themes, and have been collected as such - one on 
the phenomenology of the analog and digital and their intertwining; and one on 
the phenomenology of the real/virtual and their intertwining. The latter uses 
Second Life as a model; the former is more purely theoretical. Neither need 

I feel ridiculous sending out a public letter like this, but I'm at wit's end - 
my writing might not be worth collecting for that matter, and I have no 
academic affiliation, so it's difficult to get anyone interested. Any help 
would be greatly appreciated. Please write me backchannel or ignore this, and 
thanks for reading. (I know I write overmuch, but the mss have always been 
edited. Salt brought out a book of literary writing in 2004, and that was the 
last of it.)

Julu Twine: here, yes there

Julu Twine: here, yes, there's something to be said, sir

Julu Twine: I am speaking to you, sir, it is the 13th of the month,
would I be Julu Twine

Julu Twine: think of it as a learning, sir, one of many. I would if
I were you

Julu Twine: here is the learning

Julu Twine: to reach me, you must touch me

Julu Twine: to touch me, you must reach me

Julu Twine: I am the mistress, sir, of touch, of all that may be

[11:07]  Flight Band: All Go
[11:51]  sensor: noone around.
[12:10]  There is no suitable surface to sit on, try another spot.
[12:21]  Alan Dojoji: There are two different land parcels here - each has 
its own weather
[12:21]  Alan Dojoji: so you get two different particle flows, storm fkiws
[12:21]  Alan Dojoji: storm flows
[12:22]  Alan Dojoji: The texture at the very end is different with 
different physics
[12:22]  Alan Dojoji: it's at the end of a stationary platform
[12:22]  Alan Dojoji: These squares revolve much faster than any raster so 
they appear irregular
[12:23]  Alan Dojoji: different monitors will create different 
[12:23]  Alan Dojoji: meanwhile the weather is away from the campus/gallery
[12:23]  Alan Dojoji: I hope
[12:23]  OCADland Minotaur: They are rezzing full blown for me
[12:23]  >>> OCADland: Ellos son rezzing plena soplado para mí
[12:23]  OCADland Minotaur: no lag
[12:23]  >>> OCADland: sin retraso
[12:23]  Alan Dojoji: They rezz full blown - but their rotational sync is 
[12:23]  Alan Dojoji: They're even full-blown on my slow machine
[12:23]  Alan Dojoji: You should to be able to walk out on it
[12:24]  Alan Dojoji: The spheres generate these things - they're miniature 
reductions of the 40x40x40m spheres in the other show
[12:24]  Alan Dojoji: the blue textures were made here
[12:25]  Alan Dojoji: You can actually walk out on the rotation elements.
[12:26]  Alan Dojoji: The weather stuff fascinates me - from above you can 
see 'waves' form just like in the atmosphere
[12:26]  Alan Dojoji: but the split remains - it's a node - on the boundary
[12:27]  OCADland Minotaur: The object is in constant reproduction and 
prpaganda mode
[12:27]  >>> OCADland: El objeto está en el modo de reproducción y prpaganda
[12:27]  OCADland Minotaur: but the scroll is one ended - meaning The End Of 
[12:27]  >>> OCADland: pero el desplazamiento es un terminado - El sentido 
final de los tiempos?
[12:27]  Alan Dojoji: yes and it's "about" sexuality, reproduction, 
[12:28]  OCADland Minotaur: Why is the Torah at the last chapter?
[12:28]  >>> OCADland: ¿Por qué la Torá en el último capítulo?
[12:28]  Alan Dojoji: the end image are of breasts being held/squeezed 
slightly - power or sex but not the Torah, anti-Torah at best
[12:28]  Alan Dojoji: it's almost phallic, bends different and remains more 
coherent than the other particle disseminations
[12:28]  Alan Dojoji: the spheres glow slightly as well, a kind of lighting 
an impossible path
[12:29]  OCADland Minotaur: The background of the particles looks like a 
rolled scroll
[12:29]  >>> OCADland: El fondo de las partículas se parece a un laminado de 
[12:29]  OCADland Minotaur: at the end
[12:29]  >>> OCADland: al final
[12:30]  Alan Dojoji: maybe a form of writing

[12:32]  Alan Dojoji: Should I cut the end off? (castration complex heh)
[12:32]  OCADland Minotaur: it is ok for now

[12:35]  Alan Dojoji: I like the idea here that the whole area up here is 
empty at least at the moment - and then there's a lever (reminds me of Carl 
Andre GASP) going out where everything occurs
[12:35]  OCADland Minotaur: but in the root prim is fine
[12:35]  >>> OCADland: pero en la raíz prim está bien

[12:37]  Alan Dojoji: I love this surface by the way
[12:37]  OCADland Minotaur: Canada

[12:38]  OCADland Minotaur: Alan Dojoji (Alan Sondheim master net artist) 
will be working on new works above the Studios and has donated a new 
sculpture that is now installed on the Hybrid Conference SIM.

Alan's work on Odyssey will be taken down soon and he is working on a new 
work that will be displayed in the Hybrid Lab Gallery in the near future. 
You will find a lot of info on him
and his work via Google search and constantly changing work at

trabaja en nuevas obras por encima de los estudios y ha donado una nueva

trabajo que se mostrará en la Galería Laboratorio híbridos en un futuro
