This is very cool: The Agrippa Archive is UC-Santa Barbara project about and reproducing (sort of) William Gibson’s experimental work Agrippa, which was a book/poem/story that was on a diskette which would, upon being put into a computer, start to scroll by. You had to read it then and there because it would vanish after one reading. That’s a really simple explanation– I’ve got to get out my office and disappear onto other things myself. But this has always been a project I’ve thought was very cool in that artsy-fartsy way, and it might yet find its way back into something like English 516 or 444.
