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emails, unreleased interviews, unpublished texts, tales, poems, lists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“In My Computer” is a series of books collecting unpublished material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
