The LINK Center for the Arts of the Information Age invites artists,  
thinkers, and computer users to submit proposals for its ongoing book  
series “In My Computer”.

One's computer is a repository of valuable things that, for some  
reason, never went public: projects, drafts, short notes, private  
emails, unreleased interviews, unpublished texts, tales, poems, lists  
of quotes, image collections, spam email collections, whatever.

If you think this content may be relevant or interesting also for a  
wider audience; if you think it may work well in book form, circulated  
digitally or printed on paper; the book series “In My Computer” may be  
the right jar for your jam.

“In My Computer” is a series of books collecting unpublished material  
available in your computer, produced by LINK Editions and circulated  
both in digital and printed form through the print-on-demand (POD)  
service Lulu.com. The book can take any shape compatible with POD's  
production and distribution standards. In My Computer # 1 | Miltos  
Manetas has been published in 2011, and is available for buying and  
free download here: http://www.linkartcenter.eu/editions/in-my-computer-1?lang=en 

LINK Editions is a publishing initiative of the LINK Center for the  
Arts of the Information Age. LINK Editions uses the print on demand  
approach to create an accessible, dynamic series of essays and  
pamphlets, but also tutorials, study notes and conference proceedings  
connected to its educational activities. A keen advocate of the idea  
that information wants to be free, LINK Editions releases its contents  
free of charge in .pdf format, and on paper at a price accessible to  
all. Link Editions is a not-for-profit initiative and all its contents  
are circulated under an Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0
