Editor’s gathering for thread technocapitalismJoseph Tabbi
Recalling that Donna Haraway’s Cyborg was never meant to be a wired, blissed-out bunny, Marc Bousquet and Katherine Wills recover the political dimension in socialist-feminist thought. Their five-volume edited series, “The Politics of Information,” brings class back into cultural studies, considers the Web as crucial to the expanding ‘informatics of domination,’ and recovers the cyborg as a key figure for an entire world of labor and lifeways.

Editor’s gathering for thread writing (post)feminismJoseph Tabbi
Postfeminism remains an awkward yet laudable movement among younger women, and women no longer young – one which embraces pluralism and homosexuality, one which expects that women are just as involved in the electronic frontier of the Web as men are.

For many who are committed to working in electronic environments, an electronic “review” might better be named a “retrospective,” a mere scholarly commemoration of a phenomenon that is passing.

Postmodern politics (against the capitalist culture of postmodernity) after bosnia, kosovo, the 2001 U.S. election, 9/11, the 2004 expansion of the EU….
Editor’s gathering for thread end constructionDaniel Wenk
After a full generation of constructivist thought, after close to a decade of Internet construction and nearly as long a period of activity at ebr/altx, we’re ready to put an end to the construction of periodical issues. Instead of working within an unconsidered paradigm inherited from print media, the ebr editors intend to construct our own ends, over time and on terms that we set for ourselves (within the constraints of the web environment).
Editor’s gathering for thread critical ecologiesJoseph Tabbi
Initially presented as a thread in two parts, green and grey, Critical Ecologies continues to explore convergences among natural and constructed ecosystems, green politics and grey matter, silicon chips and sand. A 2004 Festschrift, with over a dozen essays on Joseph McElroy, hints at the literary implications of an ecological, medial turn in literary theory.
Editor’s gathering for thread webartsJoseph Tabbi
Like the webarts here under discussion, ebr approaches the Internet, in the first instance, as a unique art medium.
Editor’s gathering for thread music/sound/noiseTrace Reddell
As “sound” approaches ever more closely the condition of music it too approaches a kind of writing, which is then retroactively revealed to have been “noisy” all along.
Editor’s gathering for thread writing under constraintJan Baetens
The count-down is complete; the line has served its time. In this spirit of millennial closure, the Winter 1999/2000 issue of ebr will be the last written under the constraint of periodical publication.
