Freestyle Books Presentation

Yesterday I gave a presentation about Transmission Lines at the State Library of Queensland. Thanks to everyone who attended. Hoping you will stay in touch with me and the work.

Also, having now done the talk, I'll develop some of those ideas for the blog. In particular, I will do some more writing about neogeography and psycho-geography as well as reflect more on how Web 2.0 can be used for writing projects. As I mentioned in my talk, unlike many of my colleagues and peers, I don't specifically develop technology for my writing projects and am quite content to explore or use existing tools and platforms as writing spaces.

Hi Linda

I was at your talk at the SL on Saturday & I thank you for it.

I am a "raw beginner" in terms of the use of technology to tell a story but I'm convinced that this is the "way to go" & will try to learn more so that I can help other family members share our story.

Thanks again for the inspiration.

Regards
Jan

Hello Linda,
I just wanted to tell you that I went to the Freestyle Books Exhibition today and it gave me a great thrill to see your work here on show there. I am Brisbane based writer who has been working on the idea of a blog being a nonlinear multidimensional text thingy work of art for about a year now so it was wonderful to see your work receive that kind of recognition. Thanks for the inspiration,
Paul.

Hi Paul

Thanks so much for your lovely feedback. So pleased you've found something valuable, useful and inspiring in this work. I like it's gentleness and the fact that it keeps expanding into new spaces - a bit like the Borges story, 'The Garden of Forking Paths'. Please let me know what you are working on - perhaps post the url too and share it with others.

Cheers
Linda
