Kenneth Anderson, Assistant Professor in Computer Science, and Deena Larsen, noted hypertext author, would like to announce a night of hypertext literature with a presentation and discussion of Bill Bly's "We Descend", published by Eastgate Systems.

The reading will be held at 7:00pm on Friday, September 3rd, in the Norlin Mac Lab at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The Norlin Mac Lab is located on the third floor of Norlin Library in the main computer lab (LIBR N310B).

The session will consist of a reading of "We Descend", a discussion of its themes and of hypertext literature in general, and a chance for participants to experience the hypertext directly.

If you are planning on attending, please RSVP to Kenneth Anderson. This is the first planned event of many; Deena and I intend to explore a full range of hypertext literature in future sessions.

Note: Depending on the interest in this event, the location of the event may change. If this becomes necessary, a change in location will be announced at Be sure to check this page before attending the event!

Ken Anderson is an assistant professor in the computer science department at the University of Colorado, Boulder. His research interests include hypermedia, software engineering, human-computer interaction, and computer supported cooperative work. Recently he has addressed issues of scalability encountered when applying hypermedia techniques in large-scale software development projects. Ken is currently teaching a seminar on hypermedia and software engineering at CU.

Deena Larsen is a Denver native. She received her BA in English and Logic from the University of Northern Colorado and won the Best Thesis of the Year award for "Nansense Ya Snorsted: A logical look at nonsense". After working for a small software company, she found herself stranded in Japan and stayed for a few years. She came back to Colorado to get an MA in English at the University of Colorado and wrote one of the first MA thesis on hypertext: "Hypertext and Hyperpossibilities". Marble Springs, her first hypertext, weaves the lives of women in a small nineteenth century Colorado mining town into a tapestry that invites the reader to join in. She also edited William Dickey's collection of hyperpoems, forthcoming from Eastgate. Her most recent hypertext, Samplers: Nine Vicious Little Hypertexts, explores the relationship between structure and content in a series of geometric quilt patterns.
