- [[http://collection.eliterature.org/1/works/flanagan__thehouse.html TheHouse]], Flanagan. "As in much of electronic literature, the experience of the work as an intimate, interactive, screen-based piece is essential to understanding and appreciating it. Indeed, the work is only realized through user interaction and navigation. How does everyday spatial practice bring into focus the relationship between code, language, and relationships? What are the key characteristics of digital relationships as seen through this light? Does the recurring emphasis on process, chance, and interactivity also function as an indicator of larger questions about the chance writing of the text? The poem presented is autobiographical in nature yet engages the conceptualization of both language and embodiment as the text creates its own types of organism."

- Weekly notes might invite pre- or post-processing by developing the glossary, with this note: To gloss the term as concepts are developed in our work and reading. We don't care when Ezra was born or what he wrote - Wikipedia can take care of that. We are interested in what Pressman et al have to say about his work with respect to digital lit crit so that we can further develop an approach, placement, revision.
