choose your style: neoclassical | blue | modern | nouveau


Issue #5 of TEKKA is out today.

One of the things we need most urgently in New Media is simply discussion: a lot of us are interested, a lot of us have jobs in New Media, but there's not nearly enough dialogue. One symptom is the number of interesting books that have appeared -- books that aren't discussed nearly enough. TEKKA's taking a big step to fix this; we're commisioning lots of reviews.

Of particular note in this issue: George Landow takes a close look at Windows and Mirrors: Interaction Design, Digital Art, and the Myth of Transparency. That's a new book by Jay David Bolter and Diane Gromola. Landow's title (and the book's theme) is wonderful and important: Against the Info-Puritans.
